Oftentimes, merely pressure washing a fence won’t totally do the trick. You can clean it, but the lack of a recently-applied wood finish or coat of paint can leave the door open for a slew of problems. At Osborne, we can sand and strip the area and apply a new coat and finish to keep your deck or fence in it for the long haul.

Benefits of Fence Painting and Refinishing

  • Helps Prevent Damage – Since wood is natural, it’s susceptible to deterioration from the sun and rain. If wood is not treated, finished and waterproofed on a regular basis, that deterioration can be very rapid. Allowing Osborne Painting to paint your fence, stain it, or refinish it will prolong the life of your wooden fence and decking.
  • Increases Safety – Wood in need of sealing and waterproofing finishes can be prone to damage in the form of splintering, loose boards, exposed nails and more. These issues can become larger problems, especially if you have young children around, or if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Treated, finished wood can stand the test of time, insulating property owners from accidents, falls, splinters, and other dangers.
  • Maintains Quality Look – Having your fence repainting or refinishing done by an expert Raleigh painting company like Osborne Painting will keep your fence looking great all year round – you’ll be the envy of the neighborhood!

Painting vs Staining Fences

As mentioned above, painting your fence can increase its lifespan while also improving the look and feel of your home overall. Depending on your location, paint can be stripped from wood fences. For example, painted fences have been known to be stripped in areas of heavy rainfall and minimal amounts of sunlight, such as homes in the mountains of North Carolina. On the other hand, homes near the beach experience large amounts of salt in the air, which could become an issue for some types of wood and paint. 

The type of wood used is also a primary factor when it comes to painting or staining wood fences. For example, cedar is tough to paint, as it is porous and needs to breathe. This said stain will be the best option because it seeps deep into the wood as opposed to painting. On the other hand, oak, maple, and pine are dense and work well with both paint and stain. 

By having a great understanding of what you’re looking for, you can maximize the aesthetics of your home. 

Fence Painting FAQ’s

How to prepare for a fence painting?

Fence painting and staining preparation can help to speed up the process, limiting the amount of time needed to complete your fence. Painting contractors will provide a complete clean of your fence before the painting or staining process begins, in order to present the best results of the services. There are, however, some things that you can do to jumpstart the fence painting process such as: wash the fence down with a hose and spray areas of the fence that have collected mud and dirt over time.

How long should you wait before painting a new fence?

We recommend waiting anywhere from 30-60 days after installation of a new fence before painting or staining. In most cases, we recommend that the fence slightly weathers over the one to two months time frame, which helps to remove treatments which are often found on dry and pressure treated materials. 

How much is it to stain a fence?

The costs associated with staining a fence can vary, depending on a few different cost factors. When speaking with a fence staining company, here are some cost factors that they will consider while pricing our your project:

  • The total size of your fence
  • The type of stain that you want to be applied
  • How many coats of stain are required for your fence
