Stain and Seal


Why You Should Choose to Stain and Seal your Fence

Staining and sealing your wood fence is an important part of its maintenance and preservation. Here are some reasons why it's important to do so:

  • Protection from the Elements: Staining and sealing your fence helps protect it from the elements, including moisture, UV rays, and temperature fluctuations. This helps prevent the wood from warping, cracking, or becoming discolored, and extends the lifespan of the fence.

  • Preventing Rot and Decay: Moisture is the enemy of wood and can cause rot and decay over time. Staining and sealing your fence helps prevent moisture from penetrating the wood, which in turn helps prevent rot and decay.

  • Enhancing Aesthetics: Staining and sealing your fence can also enhance its appearance. The stain provides a protective finish that enhances the natural beauty of the wood, while also helping to preserve its color and texture.

  • Protecting from Insects: Certain types of stains and sealers also provide protection against insects, such as termites and carpenter ants, that can damage the fence.

  • Easy Maintenance: A well-sealed and stained fence is also easier to maintain. Dirt, dust, and debris can be easily cleaned off, and the stain provides an additional layer of protection that makes the fence more durable and resistant to wear and tear.

It's important to use high-quality stains and sealers that are specifically designed for use on wood fences. A good contractor can help you choose the right product for your needs and guide you through the process of staining and sealing your fence. It's recommended to re-stain and re-seal your fence every 2-3 years, or as needed, to maintain its protection and aesthetic appeal.
