How To Stain A Fence With Sprayer

The next step for a professional finish

Now that you know how to stain a fence with a sprayer, you’re ready to give your fence a professional finish. Start by spraying it with a bit of stain; you’re going to work with the color you chose, but it doesn’t have to be perfect. Next, pick up the three-inch long paintbrush, and drag it around the edge of the fence to level out the stain.

You can cover the entire fence if you’d like, but be sure to do it quickly, before the stain gets tacky. You can use the sprayer’s little blower to keep the brush clear of the fence. Now the actual staining begins. Using a soft cloth, dip the brush into the stain, and then drag it through the fence. Make sure to apply the stain evenly, and to the edges of the fence where you’re going to need to cut a seam to hide the join.

Conclusion

Drying grass stains need a few days to dry, so it’s important to make sure you start by prepping your yard for the job. It’s also important to make sure you get as much sunlight as possible for maximum tanning. We also recommend using a foam brush or a brush with a bristling action to avoid getting any tacky residue on your car paint job.

Make sure you don’t get your eyes caught by the pre-dried stain, as it will cause some intense pain if you try to remove it by brushing with your finger or hand. Once the stain is dried, it will look like it’s been there for a while. Now, you have a cleaner, greener, more attractive fence that will last for years and keep your neighbors at bay.
