STAININGStaining and sealing wood fencing not only keeps it looking good it also ensures it will last longer, particularly if a soft wood like pine has been used for construction. Staining the fence ensures the quality of the wood to last longer.
The Pine we build with is pressure-treated to protect it from infestation and rot. If pine is not treated it can warp when it gets very wet, and dries out very quickly in the sun. This can be very damaging. Sealants not only prevent water from seeping into the wood they also protect the surface from the sun's harmful rays minimizing discoloration and breakdown of wood fibers.
Cedar does not need to be pressure-treated because it contains natural oils that stop bug infestation and rot. Hardwood can generally be sealed right away. Sealing will not make a difference structurally but the wood will age and turn a dull gray color.
We recommend waiting eight weeks to stain a fence. During this time moisture content will decrease. If wood is already pressure-treated our advice is to wait longer. The dryer the wood is better for the process of applying stain. Contact us today! (769) 251-5491 We can answer any additional questions about these services.
