MENUMENU

Stain And Protect a New Fence

Note: Below is a quick synopsis, for detailed product information and application guides click on the product pages and application guides on our website.


Option 1  – Clean it  and stain it to prevent graying

A new fence is a huge investment.  Untreated, a fence will turn gray and show water stains (tannin bleed) within two years of exposure. Occasionally you’ll see fences that look great and still have beautiful color. These are the fences that people took the time to stain and seal to protect the wood from rot and discoloration.

Clean the fence prior to treating with Clean & Brite, or pressure wash to remove dirt, dust, and mildew spores. Once clean, apply two coats of the Deck & Fence Formula in the color of your choice.  Your fence will look great, and be water resistant and protected for approximately four to six years depending on your location, sun exposure, and climate. The deeper the tone of the stain you choose, the better the sunscreen.  The color will eventually fade but is easily refreshed by application of a maintenance coat or two.


Option 2 – Waterproof it with our clear Internal Wood Stabilizer and let it turn gray

Some folks prefer the gray color of weathered wood. Yet, no one wants their fence to prematurely age and rot without protection. Apply two coats of our Internal Wood Stabilizer,  a non-toxic permanent waterproofer.  The wood will be permanently waterproofed, yet with no UV protection it will eventually turn gray.
