Staining a fence
Also, the fence is about 1 yr old. What are the steps involved with prepping the fence prior to staining? (ie. cleaning, sanding, etc)

Thanks for the advice. I have quite a lot of fence to cover so I will definitely look into the sprayer route. I suppose I'll need more paint compared to a roller?Ashlylallen wrote: ↑Apr 19th, 2017 5:08 amThe easiest way to stain a wood fence is to use a low-pressure paint sprayer. This eliminates the need for sponges and brushes and allows you to apply an even coat every time—not to mention, it can be a lot faster.
However, if you don’t think you’ll have much use for an electric sprayer and don’t want to shell out cash to buy or rent one, there’s nothing wrong with using a good old paint roller. While it’s not the easiest way to stain your fence, it is still effective.

Olympic stuff from Lowe's. My parents turned me onto it. But then with a sprayer I probably put on twice as much as with a brush.

Not the stuff it was. Been a few years since I used it. Kept a can so I could buy it again. Will take a pic. Def came in a tin can.VertigoM wrote: ↑Apr 19th, 2017 8:39 pmYou mean this?

Would you happen to have a pic of the fence? I'm interested to see the colourKeelie wrote: ↑Apr 20th, 2017 12:50 amI used this to stain my pt wood fence. I decided on the semi transparent so it wouldnt look painted, and it lasts longer than the transparent. I did it 3 years ago and the fence looks great, water beads up on it. I've bought more to do my oak barrels last year and this year I'm using it for my wood Adirondack chairs.
The solid colour lasts longer if thats the look you want.

My fence was about 2 years old and I never did any prep, just put it on, and it looks great.

We bought PT wood so it would not need any stain or paint, so we thought! It started going an ugly colour and getting some black marks from being wet, and some of the ends were splitting.
