Will Offer Protection From The Sun
Everyone knows that wood can rot over time do to excessive moisture. However, many homeowners are unaware of the seriousness of sun damage on wood. The sun’s rays can cause significant damage to wood surfaces; however, there are many wood stains available today that offer UV protection. The sun’s rays can cause your fence to become discolored and unattractive.
Better Weather For It
The fall is a great time of the year for outdoor projects. The summer months are often too hot to be working outside for prolonged periods of time. The fall months are often more ideal for staining a fence because the weather tends to be more cooperative. Also, high humidity levels and high temperatures are not ideal for wood stains because they won’t dry correctly.
Prepares Your Fence For Winter
The winter months often bring snowstorms to the Mid-Atlantic region. A fresh coat of waterproof stain will serve as a protectant from excessive moisture during the winter season. Before the weather begins to plummet really, you may want to apply a coat of stain to your fence for some added protection.
