Looking for a New Cedar, Redwood, or Pine Fence Stain?
A new fence can add many benefits to your property. It can add curb appeal, increase your home’s value, provide privacy, help keep small children and pets safe, and so on. A new fence can be quite the investment so protecting it is a good idea. Applying a weatherproof stain to your new fence will ensure it looks good and lasts for many years.
A new fence will need to dry for several months before it can be sealed. New wood is pretty green, meaning it has a lot of moisture in it. After several months of being in the wind and warm sun, it will be ready for staining. Be sure to wash and prep the wood correctly prior to stain application.
