Calling a fence staining and sealing contractor is a reliable and cost-effective way to keep your wooden fence looking top-notch. Fence stains and sealants will protect your fence from any damage resulting from exposure to the elements, and a treated fence will stay in great shape for a long time—which means less maintenance work for you and a better look for your home.
The first step in the fence treatment process is to consult a professional and choose the correct type of stain for your fence. After the stain is chosen, the fence is cleaned of any mold, rot, or remnants of previous stain treatments in order to bring the wood as close to its optimal natural condition as possible. Finally, the fence stain and sealant are applied evenly over the entire fence. Some stains have sealants added in to protect the fence from damaging agents and to help the treatment last as long as possible.
It’s best to schedule your fence treatment job for a dry time of year—otherwise, the fence sealer or stain may not adhere to the wood properly, and you’ll run the risk that the treatment may wash off in the rain. However, scheduling a fence treatment at the right time is a fantastic way to ensure that your fence remains in good condition for many years.
