Fences can make all the difference in curb appeal, and a well-maintained fence offers the suggestion of affluence and composed owner. Sometimes a fence is enough for those driving by to think to themselves, "they have it all figured out." 


Painting your fence is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also financially savvy. By painting a protective layer over your fence, you are increasing both its longevity and the attractiveness of your home. If you are feeling ready for a change, but not a change so big as repainting your house, employing the services of Home Paints is an excellent investment. 


Being outdoors for your entire life would not do your skin any favors, so why not give your outdoor fence a little TLC? Giving your fence a fresh stain or coat of paint does wonders for keeping it protected from the harsh realities of nature, as untreated wood often rots or degrades quickly when exposed to the elements. 

Water is untreated wood's worst nightmare, as once it penetrates the exterior, all it does is cause problems. Moisture can crack, warp and twist the wood, and add sunlight, which bleaches and increases degradation, and you may find yourself asking, "what fence?" By applying a finish to your fence, you are protecting it from an untimely death, and increasing your home's curb appeal in the process.

Wood fences have 2 options: stain or paint. While stain is better than nothing and is attractive in its own right, paint offers the most protection from both sunlight and moisture, and can make your fence last for up to 10 years.

Stain offers a classic aesthetic, and provides a glimpse into the rich natural grain of the wood. By sinking into that grain, the stain fills the gaps in the wood that moisture would fill otherwise. This method is effective against sunlight and moisture, but the wood should be restained every 3-4 years due to it being less effective than paint.


If painting fences were as straightforward as it sounds, our business wouldn't be as popular as it is. While it is not difficult, it presents an unnecessary obstacle that our professionals will gladly take off your hands, and at an affordable rate. To ensure the fence is properly painted, first it must be powerwashed, to eliminate debris. Then drop cloths are placed, to guarantee the surruouning area is protected from stray paint. 

Depending on the type of paint and the kind of fence, the application process differs some. Metal fences should be scrubbed with a wire brush, and primed with a oxide or rust inhibiting primer before being painted. For wood fencing, the wood must be scraped and sanded, and then primed, and then painted.

Wood is stained using a brush, while it is painted through brushing, rolling, spraying, or a combination of the three. The method of painting depends of the condition and environment of the material. After application, our experts will clean up their materials and any debris they may have brushed off.
