It's a board on board 6 ft fence. How much should I expect to pay per foot?

I just bought Behr brand stain at home depot last week. It was $32 a gallon and I think 1 gallon is good for 300 sq ft. You can buy it 5 gallons at a time bur I didn't get a price on that.

Thats what we do. from .28 - .35 cents a sq ft to clean and stain. To have a contractor do it.

I owned a paint and stain company and still do a bit of side work for my old customers.

we charged $2.25 per linear foot per side to clean and seal a 6 foot privacy fence.

i use sikkens, but olympic maximum (have to use the maximum, the other stuff sucks) is also a great fence stain. looks, imo, a bit better than the sikkens.

Great info! So if I do it myself correct me if i'm wrong, rent a pressure washer, careful not to tear wood, let dry a day or so, buy some sort of disposable stain sprayer, sit back enjoy? Is there more?

yeah.


rent and airless and spray the fence about foot from the wood, up and down picket by picket. if you go side to side or start and stop, then it will show in the fence.

this is how it should turn out

You do not power wash fences....

You may know about your job i know mine! ! ! I have owned a company that nearly exclusively stains fences, arbors, and other outdoor wood structures for 9 years. Powerwashing will ruin the grain and make lines in the pickets. The idea is to remove surface mildew, mold, fungus, and algae, not wood.

you don't know that much....use a 40 degree tip and run the wand up and down each picket and it strips off the gray, mildew, fungis, algae, etc.


fence that has been pressure washed:

If your wood still has good color, just use the clear with UV inhibitor. I stained mine with cedar colored Thompsons and now it looks like crap. I liked it much better when I was just putting the clear on it.

thompsons is junk to begin with.


listen to me, after 6 years in the business and over 1200 projects stained, use a quality product.

the only off the shelf product I'd reccomend is olympic MAXIMUM.

behr sucks. sikkens, readyseal and penofin are the best stains.

The guys that stained my fence rolled their own stain. It has held up much better than the neighbors that got a new fence at the same time. Im about to get my done again to keep it looking its best.

When i did it for my dads company, his price was 13$ a panel to strip (pressure washer) and restain.

Can't remember if that was per face or for both sides of the panel.




Sometimes, sheep need to be shaken, feathers need to be ruffled, and heads need to be chopped.

Unless you are removing a loose old coating no reason to powerwash,only brighten. Powerwashing removes SOME of the bad stuff but does not KILL it. We do powerwash older decks but we still use a brightener once we are finished.
