Essential Advice for Painting Your Fence Like A Pro

Garden fences can be an absolute nightmare if they are not looked after properly. It is essential that you maintain your fence panels if you want them to last a long time and one of the best ways to ensure this it to paint them. Here at Leominster Building Supplies, we have the essential advice for painting your fence like a pro and have provided a few top tips to get you started;

Use High Quality Paint or Wood Stain

If you are going to be painting your fence panels, and you want to make sure that the end result is a good one, you are definitely going to need to make sure that you are using a high quality paint or wood stain. If you end up using cheap products, it is very likely that the wood will be affected in a negative way. As well as this, it is likely that the paint will be affected by bad weather over time, so high quality paint is absolutely essential.

 

Use High Quality Brushes

Again, this is another very common mistake. There are so many people who will try to use cheap paint brushes, yet the problem with this is that the brushes tend to fall apart whilst they are in use. This means you are going to end up with parts of the paint brush all over your fence panels, which is not a good look.

To avoid this happening, you are going to need to use a high quality paint brush; they are not overly expensive, and can be used time after time if looked after properly.

 

Paint Evenly!

A lot of people think that by slapping as much paint as possible onto the fence panel, they are saving themselves the hassle of having to apply another coat of paint; this is never a good idea. Instead, you should paint evenly, and definitely give it another coat afterwards as this will give you much better results.

As you can see, painting your fence like a pro doesn’t actually have to be that difficult at all. As long as you follow the tips noted above you will be able to paint your fences properly in no time at all, and will see results that you will be proud to show off.
