Staining a Wooden Fence

Part of choosing and maintaining your wooden fence in Bergen County also means staining it regularly. By staining your wooden fence, it is protected against moisture, rot, and fading from the sun. This is an important part of fence maintenance, so consult with your fence company on the appropriate stain to use.

As seen in the video, there are three types of stains: Clear coat, solid body, and semi-transparent. The clear coat stain will have no pigmentation added to it, so you will see the natural color and grain of the wood. The solid body stain is filled completely with color, so you will see none of the wood’s grain or natural color. The semi-transparent is the option between the two extremes. There will be a little bit of added pigmentation, but you will still be able to see some of the wood’s natural grain.
