Process We Follow for Fence Painting/Staining

We take a methodical approach to fence painting and staining in Dayton to achieve flawless, long-lasting results our clients love.

Step 1: Inspection and Planning

  • Inspect fence to assess current condition and determine any necessary repairs
  • Discuss with homeowner stain or paint options and colors
  • Calculate required materials and create transparent proposal

Before starting any fence painting or staining job, our project manager will carefully inspect the full length of your fence to identify any damage, decay, or other issues needing repair first.

We will inform you of any recommended fixes and associated costs upfront. Proper fence preparation is key for maximum paint adhesion and durability.

Next, we help you explore color options for paints and semi-transparent or solid stains. We carry behr premium stains and paints in a wide selection of colors to match any style.

Based on your fence size and condition, we calculate exactly how much primer, paint or stain, and other materials will be required to complete the job. Our transparent, upfront pricing includes all labor and materials with no hidden fees.

Step 2: Pressure Washing

  • Protect structures, vegetation, property with tarps and barrier tape
  • Adjust pressure washer psi for fence material
  • Apply cleaning agents to remove stubborn buildup if needed
  • Rinse fence thoroughly with clean water

The next step is crucial to prep your fence for staining or painting. We drape heavy tarps over any nearby landscaping, structures, or vehicles to safeguard from potential overspray damage.

Caution tape also clearly defines the workspace area to avoid accidents. Proper PPE keeps our crew safe while pressure washing as well.

For wood fences, we use a lower psi to avoid splintering wood. Metal and vinyl fences can be washed more aggressively to restore a like-new appearance.

If fences are especially dirty, we first apply a cleaning solution tailored to the fence material to help lift dirt and buildup. A complete end-to-end rinse removes all prior coatings and residue to create an optimal surface for paint adhesion.

We take before and after photos of the pressure washing and share them with you so can see the dramatic transformation taking place. Any remaining damaged pickets noted for replacement are marked with painter’s tape. After drying 24 hours, your fence is ready for staining or painting.

Step 3: Fence Repairs

  • Replace severely damaged/rotting pickets and posts
  • Mend loose boards, reinforce gate
  • Fill holes from old screws or hardware

Before applying any coating, we complete any necessary fence repairs to restore structural integrity and appearance. We are fully equipped to replace rotted 4×4 posts secured in concrete as well as 1×6 pickets and rails in wood privacy and split rail fences.

Loose or protruding screws are re-secured or replaced with exterior grade stainless steel hardware. Wobbly fence or gate sections are reinforced with brackets and wood glue to prevent future sagging issues. Our carpenters fill holes leftover from old hardware installations with wood putty before sanding smooth.

Repaired sections may receive primer first to enhance adhesion of the new finish coat. Working around repaired components, we take care not to smear new stain or drip paint onto replaced sections. This step ensures your fence is restored to optimal condition before refinishing.

Step 4: Priming and Painting

  • Apply exterior oil-based primer to cleaned, dry substrate
  • Caulk around boards and posts with flexible acrylic caulk
  • Carefully brush/roll/spray premium exterior-grade paint 2-3 coats
  • Allow proper drying time between coats

The painting process begins by priming the bare wood or metal fence with an exterior oil-based primer ideal for maximum paint adhesion and water resistance. Priming pre-sealed fences also helps new paint better adhere to old layers without peeling or chipping prematurely.

Our painters then caulk around each picket and post using a paintable, flexible acrylic caulk. Filling these joints waterproofs the fence to prevent moisture intrusion leading to wood rot over time. The smooth caulk bead also allows the subsequent paint coat to cover evenly without drips or uneven edges.

Only premium quality exterior latex or oil-based paints are used to deliver lasting performance and durability on every job. Behr exterior paint applied by our professionals resists fading, chalking, and yellowing even in direct sun exposure.

Depending on client preferences and the fence size, we apply paint using brush, roller, or spray equipment. Tight spaces like fence gates may require careful brushwork to coat all sides while open spans of privacy fencing paint quickly with an airless sprayer.

We allow at least 24 hours drying time between coats. Most fences require 2-3 finish coats for flawless coverage on all sides. Additional coats means extra protection from the elements to make the paint job last 5-7 years or longer before needing a refresh.

Step 5: Site Clean Up

  • Pick up and properly dispose of any debris
  • Remove tarps, tape, and protective equipment
  • Inspect work and touch up any missed spots

To complete the professional paint or stain job, we tidy the workspace by gathering up drop cloths, leftover materials, empty paint cans for responsible disposal. All workspace protective measures like tarps and tape are removed.

The project foreman then performs a final walkthrough, inspecting the full perimeter for any missed spots and correcting as needed with touch up paint.

We brush off any specks of dirt or debris from freshly painted surfaces. Finally, we safely remove ladders and remaining equipment from your property.

FAQs About Fence Painting/Staining in Dayton, Ohio

What kind of paint do you use on wood fences?

We use Behr Premium or Premium Plus exterior latex or oil-based paints designed specifically for wood, metal, and other fencing materials. Behr resists fading, cracking, peeling and provides maximum hide and durability.

How do you keep paint off concrete, plantings, etc?

We take extensive precautions to avoid drips and splatters on other surfaces near your fence. Drop cloths, tape, careful brushwork prevents staining concrete or landscaping. Any minor spills are cleaned up promptly before leaving your home.

How soon can it rain after painting a fence?

Oil-based paints take longer to fully bond and cure over 24-48 hours. After allowing proper drying times between coats, light rain or dew won’t affect adhesion. Heavy rain is best avoided for 5-7 days if possible so paint can continue curing without excessive moisture.

What about gates – do you take them off to paint?

For wood gates up to 6 feet wide, we are usually able to paint effectively with the gate still hanging by supporting the bottom edge as needed. Wider double gates over 8 feet may need removable to fully finish all sides. We rehang all gates perfectly level and test function before completion.

How do you charge – per foot or a flat rate?

We provide quotes tailored to each fence painting or staining job for total transparency upfront. This allows you to budget accurately compared to contractors charging by the hour or foot. The quote includes all labor, prep work, high quality paints/stains, cleanup, and typically runs $X to $X per linear foot. Contact us today for your custom fence painting estimate!

How long does it take to paint a fence?

For a typical 6-foot tall wooden privacy fence spanning 100 linear feet, our 3-4 person crew can complete the pressure washing, scraping/sanding, priming, painting, and cleanup in 3-5 days weather permitting. Actual duration varies based on fence height, length, crew size, weather delays.

Does painting a fence add value to my home?

Yes! Along with aesthetic appeal, a freshly painted fence displays pride of ownership and care for your exterior spaces. Refinishing faded, cracked fencing before listing a home for sale can increase curb appeal to prospective buyers.

Can you match my existing fence color?

Absolutely. For repaint projects, we bring behr color samples to match your previous fence, trim or exterior paint color very closely. Just provide any paint codes, brands used, or physical color chip for accurate matching.

How long does a painted fence last?

On average, fence paint jobs last 4-7 years before needing restoration in Ohio depending on sun exposure, weathering, quality of surface preparation and paints used. South/west facing fences may fade faster while north/east sides hold color better over time. Proper prep and using quality exterior latex or oil paint gives longest durability of any painted finish.

How soon can I allow my dogs back in the yard after painting?

We recommend keeping pets off a freshly painted fence for at least 48-72 hours as oils in the paint fully cure. Their paws could leave permanent prints if fence is not dried properly.
