3 Reasons to Refinish Your Wood Fence

December 13, 2019 at 9:42 am | No comment | Category: Blog, Fence Refinishing

Don’t let your fence become an underappreciated element of your home and yard!  A great fence is important in providing privacy, safety, and aesthetic appeal, and helps set the tone for your home and property.  One of the best ways to maintain you fence is to refinish it routinely or call on a great painting company to refinish it for you.

Here’s why you should refinish your wood fence:

  1. Keep it in good repair. Refinishing your fence properly ensures the boards don’t splinter, split, or start to rot. When refinishing your fence or dock or other wood surfaces on your property, you have the chance to watch for nail heads, holes, rust or mold growth that may be starting, insect infestations, and other issues and correct them.
  2. Keep it from warping. Sealing and refinishing your fence helps protect it from water damage.  Wood is highly porous and when it’s not adequately sealed it will absorb water and eventually begin to warp and rot.
  3. Keep it looking good. You are selective about the color you paint your house, the landscaping you plant around the yard, and the specific shingles on your roof, and the fence, pergola, and wooden deck deserve the same attention to detail.  A fresh coat of stain applied by a highly rated painting contractor can give your fence a new life and can bring up the curb appeal of your entire property!

Fence refinishing can be a simple and satisfying DIY project, but it can also easily get out of hand and end up taking more of your time and resources than you’d like.  More and more homeowners choose to call on a highly rated professional painting company to refinish their fence and give it a fresh look, completely hassle-free.

When Is It Okay To Let My Painting Contractor Use A Paint Sprayer?


For every surface to be painted, there is a method that suits it best. The traditional paint brush and roller are still the best option for many painting projects, but there are some areas of the home for which a paint sprayer will do the best work. In most cases, a combination of methods will be used for your project to create the best possible final product. Great painting contractors know how to make each part of your house look its best, and will know when to brush, when to roll, and when to spray. As a homeowner, it can be intimidating to think of paint being sprayed onto any area of your home, but there are actually many cases in which the paint spray gun is safe and effective and will give the best results.
