If my fence is already treated do I need to stain?

Cedar and Cypress boards in most cases are not treated, however the pressure treated pine is, which is most common here in East Tennessee. The treated lumber of today is simply not as good as it used to be. We are seeing a huge increase of lumber that does not hold up to the elements. Your new treated pine fence or deck will crack, warp, turn gray, and twist. It is more important now than ever to protect your wood. A good oil-based stain and seal will stop problems now and save you money in the long run!

How long should I wait before I stain my fence or deck?

We have found for fences two to three months is the best time for protection. With decks you get a more optimal look if you wait 6-8 months after installation.

Does my fence need to be stained if I just had it installed?

Absolutely! If left unstained, the wood will turn antique grey. The grey indicates your fence is developing heavy organic growth and is in the beggining stages rot. The optimal time to stain and seal a new fence is about 2-3 months after installation.
