Wood Fence Maintenance Schedule | Cedar Fence Stain Review


So how often do you power wash and clean your fence and stain it? Boy that’s a great question and really in regards to… Are you a DIYer looking to sharpen your skills, looking for solutions for home improvement issues, getting advice when needing to hire a contractor, and staying up to date on the latest thing industry has to offer on news and trends? You are in the right place. welcome to Discover Your Home with your host Mark Lotz. A good maintenance schedule I find that when most people have a fence that is either semi-transparent, semi solid color will start to fade in a couple years. I would say if you’re looking to be consistent two to three years is a really good benchmark to go ahead and just maintain that fence. Okay you can go longer, I’ve let mine go you know four to five years and it can but two and three years is really a good a good maintenance schedule for your fence staining and cleaning. What kind of stain there again I’m gonna recommend Ready Seal is probably a transparent, Sherwin Williams has got a nice semi-transparent and semi solid, and Benjamin Moore Arborcoat which has got a semi trans and a semi solid. I like the oil I think the oil has a tendency to penetrate better the downside with oils is they don’t keep their color. I don’t find they keep their color as as long as say an acrylic based product so there’s kind of good and bad with all products so but if I’m gonna recommend to steer you one way I’m gonna recommend you to go ahead and do a oil-based stain on your fence.

    I'd love to see a photo of a recently pressure washed & stained wood fence. Let me know if you've tackled this project and if you'd do it again as a DIY'er or if you'd hire it out to a contractor? It's a bit of a time-consuming project, but really not hard at all.

    Great great info! I should've stained my fence 15-20 years ago. Could I still do it now, after power washing it? Would it be a good idea to paint it instead of staining it?
