At Griffin Fence we understand that  fence maintenance is the key to your investment retaining its value. On average, our clients spend between $3,500.00 and $4,500.00 on their new fences. Our entry level package costs as low as $6.00 per linear foot, and is well worth every penny. Cedar, unfortunately, is very susceptible to water rot and termite damage, but our product deters both . We recommend that you keep up with the maintenance of your fence by way of adding a fresh coat of treatment when you notice the color fading. The better you maintain your fence, the longer it will provide security, privacy, and a crisp new look.

Proper fence staining is an important maintenance to keep your fence safe from the elements and save fence owners the headache of having to replace their fence in the long run. With the brutal Houston Texas sun, its recommended to stain your wood fence every 3-5 years. Unprotected wood is susceptible to mold and mildew which decreases the life and value of your fence. Treating your cedar adds years of life to your fence.

Fence Staining FAQ’s

Q: Is it neccesary to clean your fence prior to staining it?
A: If you can tell that your fence is turning silver it will have to be pre-treated. The silver is actually an algae. We clean, brighten and condition most of the fences we stain unless your fence is fairly new.

A: We spray via low pressure, followed immediately by back-brusining (hand brushing on any streaks or runs)

Q: What type of stain do you use?
A: We use Behr or Thompsons stains and sealers. Although very expensive, we have found these to be the longest lasting stains on the market.

Q: How much sealant or stain will you use to protect my fence?
A: Typically we will use 1 gallon of stain per 170-190sf.

Q: How will you protect pool and plants from stain?

A: With temperatures from the 50s to 70s about 4-6 hour if temperatures are into the 70s and 80’s the stain is usally water ready withing 2-4 hours.
