Wood Fence Care & Maintenance Guide
SEALING, PAINTING, & WOOOD FENCES
While plastic fences require very little maintenance, Albany Fence Company’s wooden fences require maintenance to keep your fence looking perfect for many years to come. It is highly recommended to treat the fence with a sealer, stain or varnish to protect the wood from sun, rain and sudden temperature changes. Depending on the weather and the pre-treatment of the wood, wooden fences should ideally be sealed, painted or stained between 30 days and 6 weeks after installation. You don’t want to seal the fence right after construction is complete. If you allow 4-6 weeks, the wood may expand and contract with the amount of sunlight and temperature changes in your local climate.
Sealing a wooden fence creates a barrier against water. Available in clear or translucent finishes, wood finishes allow the wood’s natural beauty to shine through. We recommend using a wood finish that also contains UV stabilizers to reduce the effects of the sun. For lasting protection, the wood should be re-impregnated every year.
To stain a wooden fence, the wood must be completely dry.To determine if the wood is ready for staining, spray the surface with water. If the water starts to cut through, your wood isn’t ready to take the stain properly. Wait a few days and test again until no more water runs onto the wood surface. Choose a stain with the longest manufacturer guarantee. Make sure the stain also contains UV stabilizer and water repellent.
When painting a wooden fence, choose an alkyd oil primer. Every surface of the wood, including the cut ends, needs to be primed. Finished with two coats of the highest quality acrylic latex paint. As with staining, make sure the wood is completely dry before priming and painting. It’s good to do a spray test by applying a few drops of water to the wood surface.If any droplets appear, wait and try again in a few days. Color should be reapplied as needed to give a nice finish. Depending on the environmental conditions and the location of the wooden fence, this may or may not be annual.
CLEANING YOUR WOODEN FENCE
Low-pressure cleaning with a high-pressure cleaner helps keep the wooden surface free of dirt and mold. Use a mild soap specifically formulated for cleaning pressure treated wood.Do not use high pressure cleaning methods and do not concentrate the pressure washer on one area. After cleaning, allow the fence to dry completely and reapply sealer or weatherproof stain.
