What Products to Use

Paint

Paint looks great when it is first applied and is a better option than stain if your fence has a lot of imperfections. You can also paint your fence any colour imaginable. Paint however sits on the surface and can peal and flake off.

Stain

You can use various types of stain, from transparent all the way to a solid stain. Transparent and semi transparent stains allow you to see the natural grain of the wood, it penetrates deep into the wood however, if you have any imperfections you will not want to use a transparent stain because it will show through. Solid stains sit on the top like a paint and only a bit of the natural grain, but like paint it can be tinted to any colour.

Chosing Your Product

Inexpensive paints and stains tend to have problems and they tend to happen quick. The paints tend to flake off and just simply don't look as good and the stains tend to not penetrate into the wood properly.  Quality products will save you money in the long run.
