Fence Painting or Staining
An important part of your home is your fence. It not only provides your home with security and privacy, it’s adds a great deal of curb appeal. Routine maintenance can keep your fence looking good for years, but a proper stain or paint needs to be the base foundation.
Proper painting or staining not only adds a natural elegance to your fence, but also prevents moisture from damaging the wood. The weather in your region determines how often you should paint or stain your fence.
Whether to paint or stain your fence is a personal choice. Either will add beauty to your home and increase its value. Both paint and stain will have their pros and cons. Painting is less expensive initially, but could require more frequent maintenance and upkeep to prevent chipping. Staining can be more expensive initially. However, stain absorbs into the wood better. This means that instead of peeling and chipping, the color will just fade over an extended amount of time and requires less maintenance.
In order to get the best quality paint job, the fence must be prepared first, just like walls. The weather can have a drastic effect on the wood to be stained or painted, so the weather should be kept in mind when planning the best times to begin or complete the project.
Don’t forget that, as with all investments, a little maintenance can help protect from a greater task later. Our professional painters at Painters of Edison best paint crew can help maintain your fence. Contact us at 732.479.7148
