Fence Staining

(StatePoint) Are you staining your deck, fencing or outdoor furniture? Before you start any staining project, make sure the wood surface has been properly prepared.

Pick a day to work that is between 50 and 90 degrees and when cold or wet weather is not expected within 48 hours.

Remember, a staining project can be labor intensive, particularly if you’re working on a large surface. To reduce your project time, team up with a friend. You can speed the process by an estimated 32 percent by having one person use a roller to apply a layer of stain while the other person uses a brush to go over it, according to Flood Wood Care. 

By using a brush attached to a pole, you can avoid bending over in a way that is stressful to your back and knees.
