Fence Maintenance Tips
|Check your wood fence after any significant storms or weather events to make sure it's stable and level. An easy way to do this is to run a piece of string along the tops of the fence posts. If the string appears level, your posts are secure. If you begin to notice any dips or rises along the string, check the posts for damage and make necessary repairs before the problem worsens.

Transparent Oil Based Stain:
We use Wood Defender - which contains paraffin oil that penetrates deep into the wood with a unique combination of chemicals specially formulated to protect natural wood from the elements.
Color – the overall end result will vary. There are multiple factors that contribute to the slight difference in color; hence, no two fences will look alike. In our experience, 85% of homeowners choose Sable over Sierra.
Solid Latex Based Stain:
We use Behr - this is a latex based stain that goes on like a solid paint. There are multiple colors to select from, however; cappuccino, Sable, and wood chip are the most popular colors.
*When staining with transparent stain, water marks on your fence caused by your sprinkler system will be visible after staining.
