Benefits Of Professional Fence Painting And Staining Services
The apparent benefits of fence painting and staining are that it adds beauty and style to it. But aesthetics aren’t the only benefits for fence painting; application of paint or any other finish to your fence offers protection to the wood from adverse weather conditions and the elements.
Subjection to intense rain and sunlight, both things Florida has plenty of, can warp, discolor, or rot the wood in your fence. This is why it is ever so important to apply a finish to act as a protective shield.
If you are considering applying finishing to your wood fence, you can either paint or stain it. Paint offers the best protective cover for wood against moisture and sunlight and it does not have to be reapplied as often as staining does.
Staining your wooden fence offers an excellent moisture resistance. Coupled with the fact that staining your fence shows off the natural grain of the wood makes it the preferred option for fence owners. Staining, however, does not offer much protection against sunlight and needs to be re-applied every 3-4 years.
If you think you’re safe if you have a metal fence, think again. Staining may not be an option for your fencing but painting still is and a layer of paint still helps protect your metal fencing from sun and water. Together, too much sun and water can lead to rusting and deterioration of the strength of your metal fence, allowing it to stretch more than it should when leaned against.
