Tips to Rejuvenate Your Fence with a Fresh Coat of Paint

Fence Paint Job

Before you start to paint your fence, use these tips to prepare!

If you are ready to take advantage of the beautiful weather to finish up your last few exterior home improvement projects, now is the time! If your wood fence looks a little bit worse for wear, rejuvenate your fence with a fresh coat of paint. Here are some of our best painting tips to keep your wood fence looking great.

Before You Start

Before you get started on the fresh coat of paint, make sure that you:

  • Mow the lawn around the bottom of the fence so that the grass won’t interfere
  • Remove any dirt or debris from on or around the fence
  • Use a pressure washer or powerful hose to clean off the fence
  • Let the fence dry completely
  • If there is currently paint on the wood fence, scrape it off or sand it off
  • Check the length of your wood fence for any termite damage or insect infestation
  • Tape down the hardware and hinges so that they don’t get paint on them
  • Put down a drop cloth or tarp around the fence

During the Fence Painting Process

While you paint your fence, make sure that you:

  • Work in sections, one at a time
  • Don’t work during the hottest part of the day or in periods of direct sunlight (this makes the paint dry too quickly)
  • Work slowly around areas of your fence that have plants or shrubs nearby
  • Check the weather every day (and during the day) to make sure that rain or storms aren’t on the way
  • Make sure that you have the proper amount of help to get the job done in a reasonable amount of time
