Fence Painting/Staining Near Boulder, Colorado

Is your fence looking weathered and worn? Faded from years in the Colorado sun and elements? At Fence Company Boulder, we specialize in revitalizing tired, faded fences with our professional fence painting and staining services.

A fresh coat of stain or paint does more than just improve the aesthetic appeal of your fence – it also protects the wood from further damage caused by exposure to the elements.

Ultraviolet rays from the sun, in particular, can cause wood fences to crack, splinter and warp over time. A protective layer of paint or stain shields the wood and keeps your fence looking great for years to come.

Our team has painted and stained hundreds of fences. We use only the highest-quality commercial grade paints and stains designed specifically for fencing.

Our experts properly prepare each fence prior to painting or staining to ensure the finish adheres properly and lasts. And we work efficiently to minimize disruption to your property.

We provide our services for both residential and commercial customers. Give your fence the revitalizing facelift it needs with our professional painting and staining services. Your fence will look brand new when we’re done!

Process We Follow for Fence Painting/Staining

At Fencing Boulder, our fence painting and staining process is designed to provide your fence with a beautiful, long-lasting finish. Here is what you can expect when you hire us:

Inspection and Prep Work

The first step in the fence painting/staining process is a thorough inspection and prep work. Our team will examine your existing fence to look for any damage, decay or other issues that need to be addressed prior to painting or staining.

We may recommend fence repairs in some cases. We will also wash the fence with a power washer and let it dry completely before beginning the painting or staining process. Proper prep work helps ensure excellent adhesion and longevity of the finish.

Applying Paint Primer

If your fence is being painted, the next step is applying a high-quality primer designed specifically for exterior wood. Priming is a very important part of the paint process, as it seals the wood, allowing for enhanced adhesion and protection from the topcoat of paint.

We use premium primers from leading brands like Sherwin Williams and Behr. The primer is applied using brush, pad or sprayer depending on the specifics of your project.

Stain Prep for New Fences

For new fences being stained for the first time, we prepare the surface by lightly sanding to ensure proper penetration and adhesion of the stain. This opens up the wood grain so the stain can really soak in for a long-lasting finish.

Stain Prep for Previously Stained Fences

If we are staining a fence that has been previously stained, we first use a deck brightener/cleaner to remove any existing finish and properly prepare the surface. Deck brightener opens up the wood pores for excellent stain penetration.

Applying Paint or Stain Finish Coats

Once prep work is complete, your fence is ready for the finish coats of paint or stain. We use only the highest quality paints and stains designed specifically for fencing. Paint is applied in at least two finish coats, allowing proper dry time between coats.

Stain is applied with brush, pad or sprayer depending on the project. We ensure full, even coverage across the entire fence. The end result is a beautifully uniform finish that revitalizes the look of your fence.

Clean Up

Finally, we complete the job by cleaning up any mess and debris. We take care to leave your property looking neat and tidy when the fence painting or staining project is complete. The only thing left behind is your gorgeous, refreshed fence!

Optional Clear Protective Topcoat (Stain Jobs)

For stained fences, we highly recommend applying an additional clear topcoat after the stain has fully cured. The clear topcoat adds another layer of UV protection and waterproofing.

This prevents premature fading and weathering, extending the life of the stain finish significantly. The topcoat is fast-drying and adds little time/cost to the project. Just let us know if you would like us to apply this protective topcoat following the stain application.

As you can see, our fence painting and staining process is designed for maximum durability, aesthetics and longevity. Let our experts handle your project the proper way from start to finish. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed when you hire Fencing Boulder.

Cost of Fence Painting/Staining in Boulder

What does it cost to paint or stain a fence? The price for your specific project will vary based on:

  • Linear fence footage being painted/stained
  • Number of fence sides being painted/stained
  • Choice of paint vs stain
  • Any necessary prep work and repairs
  • Whether a clear topcoat is being applied (stain jobs)

We provide free estimates so you know exactly what to expect cost-wise for your particular fence painting or staining job. The estimate takes into account the specifics of your project to give an accurate price quote with no surprises down the road.

Expect to pay an average of $3-$5 per linear foot for most standard residential fence painting and staining projects. Higher-end paints, stains and add-ons like clear topcoat will fall on the higher end of this range.

FAQs About Fence Painting/Staining in Boulder

How often should I have my fence painted or stained?

On average, expect to have your fence painted or stained every 3-5 years. Stain may last slightly longer than paint before needing to be redone. Factors like sun exposure, weathering and wood type impact how long the finish lasts.

What is the best paint/stain to use on fences?

We recommend using high-quality exterior-grade paints/stains designed specifically for wood fencing. Behr and Sherwin-Williams are excellent brands. Avoid cheap paints/stains from home improvement stores.

Should fence boards be replaced before painting/staining?

Boards that are badly warped, cracked or have wood rot should be replaced. We can handle this repair work prior to painting or staining the fence.

How long does it take paint or stain to dry between coats?

Most paints/stains take 4-6 hours to dry between coats. We allow for proper dry time before applying the next coat.

Should I go with stain or paint for my fence?

Stain is great for showcasing the wood’s natural grain but requires more frequent maintenance. Paint hides imperfections better and lasts a few years longer before needing to be redone.

What prep work is required before painting or staining?

Proper prep work like power washing, light sanding, applying primer/cleaner helps ensure the finish adheres well and lasts. This is key!

What is the best way to apply fence paint/stain?

Using a brush, pad or sprayer helps ensure an even finish. We use professional equipment and methods for flawless results.

How long does it take to paint or stain the average fence?

Most standard 6 foot tall wood privacy fences take us 1-2 days to paint or stain from start to finish. Exact timeframe depends on fence size.

Should I paint both sides of the fence?

Painting both sides provides maximum protection from the elements. If your neighbor shares the fence, coordinate with them to split the cost.

Do you provide stain color matching if needed?

Absolutely! For fences previously stained, we can color match the existing stain to achieve uniform results. Just provide a stain chip or sample.
