Reasons To Stain your Fence
Protect Your Fence
Staining can protect your fence from sun and water damage. UV Rays from the sun can cause warping and fading. When it rains, water can soak into your wooden fence causing rot. In winter, water in the wood can freeze causing cracks in your fence boards. Staining your fence protects it from the elements so you can avoid costly and time consuming repairs.
Extend the Life of Your Fence
By preventing damage and protecting your fence with a stain, your fence will last longer and need less maintenance than if you didn’t stain it.
Enhance the Color and Texture of the Wood
Highlight the wood grain and natural color of your wooden fence with a stain that is not only functional but attractive as well. Our free color consultation services can help you choose a beautiful, natural looking wood fence stain to bring out the natural beauty of your fence.
Sealing alone won’t protect your wood from cracking. The right stain will keep necessary moisture in the wood while keeping unwanted moisture out.
Improve Curb Appeal
A well maintained fence looks beautiful and enhances your curb appeal while an old weathered fence can be an eye sore. Professional fence staining can help your fence, and by extension your home, look it’s best.
Increase Home Value
A beautiful fence in good condition is attractive to buyers and can help you get a better price when it comes time to sell your home.
Our Fence Staining Process
Schedule an Estimate
We always begin our projects with a free estimate so we can get to know you, find out what you’re looking for, and give you an idea of the services we provide. We’ll come out to look at your fence, measure it, and talk to you about your goals and our process.
Inspect the Wood
Before we begin staining we’ll check to make sure a new fence is ready for stain. Whether you have an old or new fence we’ll check it over to make sure it’s in good condition and ready for stain.
Make Necessary Repairs
If your fence is older, it may need some repairs before staining. We will go over your fence carefully and fix any problem areas like nails sticking out or damaged boards
Clean the Wood
The entire fence is thoroughly cleaned to remove any dirt and grime. Previous stains may need to be removed as well. This is all done to ensure that nothing stops the wood stains from soaking into the fence boards. Our wood cleaners are effective at cleaning your fence quickly without harming nearby plant or animal life.
We apply top quality to stain to your entire fence including fence posts. All surfaces are carefully covered with a fine layer of stain to maximize durability.
Once the staining is complete we will inspect everything with you to ensure the work is finished to your complete satisfaction.

Fence Staining Minneapolis FAQs
How long will it take to stain my backyard fence?
This depends on what kind of repairs you might need, what fence type and style you have, and how big the fence is. In most cases we can complete the work in 1-2 days.
When is the best time of year to stain my fence?
Spring and fall are the best times to stain. Your stain will soak in and dry best when the temperatures are between 50-90 degrees and the sun isn’t too strong.
How much will it cost to paint my fence?
This varies depending on a number of factors including the size of your fence, what kind of gaps it has, and whether or not it has a lattice. We’re happy to provide free estimates to give you an idea of what it will cost for your specific project.
How long do I have to wait after building my fence to have it stained?
Most new fences can’t be stained right away, they need a few weeks to dry out. How long to wait depends on the type of wood your fence is made out of and can be impacted by the weather (if there is a lot of rain, it will take longer). We are happy to provide a recommendation for when to stain your new fence based on your particular fence and the season.
