TWPStainHelp.com Tips: How to Apply TWP Wood Stains to a Fence
Wood fences have been around for many years and can provide beauty, protection, and privacy to any home. Like other wood structures, wood fences need to be treated to keep them from becoming weather damaged. The key is to block out harmful UV rays and moisture. Using an easy to apply TWP formula wood stain can help preserve your fence for many years.
Prior to coating your fence with TWP Stains, it is important that the fence first is cleaned. Do this using a product like the Gemini Restore-A-Deck wood cleaner. Once the wood fence is free of dirt and grime it can be coated with any of the TWP Series Wood Stains that are offered in several different wood tones and colors.
Check your local forecast before embarking on a fence staining project. TWP fence stain is best applied in temperatures between 60-80 degrees. It should not drop below freezing within 8 hours of application. No rain should be expected within 12 hours of application.
TWP Total Wood Preservative applies easily with a roller, brush, stain pad, pump sprayer, or airless sprayer. The most effective and doable method for the average homeowner is using a garden type pump sprayer.
Be sure to mix the TWP product well before transferring it to a garden sprayer or roller pan. Use plastic or tarps to protect any shrubbery, house siding, concrete, or other surfaces you do not wish to get the stain on. Also pay attention to the opposite side of the fence, especially when using a pump or airless sprayer. The stain will incidentally be sprayed through the board gaps and settle on the other side.
Start on one end of the fence and begin applying TWP stain to an entire board at a time before moving on to the next. Apply only as much stain as the wood can absorb. After several minutes go back to where you started and wipe any excess stain or drips away with a brush or clean cloth. Continue this method until the fence is coated.
Protecting a wood fence with TWP wood and fence stain is something a homeowner can do pretty easily with the right knowledge and tools. TWP Wood Stain has been around for over 2 decades and is a leader in wood preservation. TWP will enhance the look and life of your wooden fence and should be applied every 3-5 years as needed.
