If you have a wood fence around your front or back yard, you would probably like to do what you can to help the fence last longer. Since wood is a natural substance, it will eventually wear out after it has been exposed to the elements for several years. There are some things you can do to extend the life of your wood fence.
Home improvement stores sell clear and colored protective coatings for wood. These coatings help repel water and keep the wood from being damaged by constant exposure to the sun. You can choose a clear coat so that the fence’s natural color shines through, or you can choose a darker stain that will create a more custom look for your fence. If you would rather have a color that is not common to wood,
Avoid Watering the Fence
Many people who have wood fences also have manicured lawns that need to be watered on a daily basis. When you set up your lawn sprinkler, be careful that it does not always spray the fence in the same place every day. When a wood fence is watered daily with the lawn, it develops a discolored area where the water strikes it every day. Constant exposure to water will break the wood down faster, as well. If the fence is being watered on the lower section every day but not watered near the top, the slats can become warped and break more easily.
Replace Breaks Right Away
When you see that part of the fence is beginning to warp or pull away from the fencepost, repair the break as soon as you can. Fences are created so that all of the slats distribute the pressure evenly. When one section begins to warp or break, it can cause other sections to warp and break as well. If you make sure to replace any problems as soon as you notice them, your fence will remain in good working condition much longer. If you do not address a problem early enough you may find yourself replacing the whole fence instead of one section.

Safety Guidelines for Pressure Washing a Fence? Return to TopThere are a few basic safety rules to follow around pressure washing equipment. Remember that it is a power tool and as such it should be safely away from the reach of children. Wear eye protection and appropriate clothing and never point the power washer nozzle at another person or yourself.
Choosing the Right Cleaner to Pressure Wash your Fence? Return to TopChoosing the right power washing chemicals will be critical to obtaining good results when you clean your fence. Many experts will recommend an acid based cleaner because they are less dangerous for the average do-it-yourselfer to handle. The disadvantage is that acid based cleaners are less effective. There are, however, commercial-grade cleaners such as Biocleanse that are biodegradable and consumer friendly. It comes in two parts that you combine before applying. These cleaners are gentle on the wood but results in a great looking fence. Never let the cleaning solution sit on the wood for more than 15 minutes or it will start to dry and leave a residue. Always rinse with plenty of fresh water.
Stain your wood fence
The Fence Supply Companies have The Wood Defender stains that they are recommending. I have seen through fence companies in Atlanta. I’m sure it is good. I’ve used Behr stain for years. It hasn’t failed me yet. I will use them just to prove to myself which is better. or how it really doesn’t matter which stain you are using. With the Behr just make sure that you get the House & Fence bucket. pictured here to the left. save some Mula, Dough, and Bones. It’s one of the most inexpensive ones. You can get the semi-transparent as well. oh yeah. I found the best stain applicator at home depot. It cost about $40.00. but, it gets the job done for you DIYer. It makes it easier for me to make the money from you that you should be saving by doing it yourselves.
