Top 5 Benefits of Staining Your Wood Fence

Have you ever wondered about the benefits of staining your wooden fence? It’s an important step in maintaining the health and quality of your fencing investment. After all, hot, dry summers and cold, wet winters can wreak havoc on wooden fences. Thankfully, proper staining can help protect your fence from the elements... And let’s face it, there are few places that’s more important than in Canada!

At A & G Fencing, we pre-stain much of our fencing prior to installation in our heated paint shop. We use high-quality stain and this, in addition to the top grade Canadian cedar we use for all wood fence products, ensures a superb, long-lasting fence. When it comes to wooden fences, the quality of the wood and the stain are two of the most important factors for longevity.

So why do we stain? There are a number of benefits…

Prevention of Rotting

A high-quality, properly applied stain, such as the pre-staining done in our paint shop, will help prevent water from getting into your wood fence. In turn, this helps to prevent rotting.

Limit UV Damage

No matter the season, direct sunlight can strip the colour from your wooden fence, leaving it looking faded and old. Our pre-staining will ensure that the UV damage is limited. Regular upkeep will have your fence looking new for years to come!

Prevention of Splitting

If water gets into your fence and freezes, it could cause big problems. Thankfully, our stain will repel the water, helping to prevent splitting.

Enhance Wood Grain

Staining your cedar fence helps to make the wood grain pop, increasing the visual appeal of your fence. Not only will your fence look great, but it may even help to increase your property value!

Increase Lifespan

Ultimately, the main reason for staining your fence is increased lifespan. There’s no doubt that staining your wooden fence is a necessity for Canadians. At A & G Fencing, we do the staining, so you don’t have to!

To help preserve the look and health of your fence, the stain will need to be maintained over the course of your fence’s life. If you have any questions about your current fence, or would like to arrange an appointment, please contact us.
