How to Perfectly Stain Cedar Fencing, Islip, New York

Cedar fencing serves a multitude of important purposes; not only does it boost curb appeal, but it protects your property and offers privacy. Staining your cedar fence will ensure it stays in top condition for the years ahead. Below are three tips for staining your cedar fence from the experts at Wayside Fence Company in Bay Shore, New York.

3 Tips for Staining Cedar Fencing

1. Choose a High-Quality Stain

Select a quality stain that complements the shade and variations of the cedar, the exterior color of your home, and the natural environment of your property. A premium stain will protect the wood better than paint. Over time, paint flakes and chips off, but stain simply fades. Stain comes in a variety of color and opacity options, so it's important to research to find what will work best for your taste and budget.

2. Plan Ahead

Cedar FencingOutdoor temperatures and conditions will affect your project. Plan to stain on a day with low humidity, when temperatures are between 40 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, look ahead at the weather forecast for the subsequent day or two after you plan to stain. Avoid any stretches with rain in the forecast; you want to have mild weather while the stain dries.

3. Use a Paintbrush on Hard-to-Reach Areas

For broader areas of the fence, use a roller to apply the stain. For harder-to-reach areas or spots where the wood surface is naturally uneven, use a smaller paintbrush. This ensures that every speck of exposed wood gets covered, and you won't need to worry about an uneven coat.

By following these tips, you’ll achieve the perfect stain for your cedar fencing. To find the materials you need, visit Wayside Fence Company in Bay Shore, New York.
