Staining a fence is the last step in the process to complete the makeover or update. Assuming all the process of repairing the fence, cleaning has been completed it is now time to stain a fence.
The hard part is over and the stain process should be quick and easy. That being said depending on how much of a wood fence there is to stain will dictate the time it takes.
Usually a smaller yard when its time to stain will take a few hours. The larger the project most of the time it will only take one day. In most residential neighborhoods the stain process is 1/2 day to a full day. If the property is fenced with an acre or more space it could take up to two days. This of course is being stained by using a spraying which will give a lot more coverage in a shorter amount of time.
Let’s say a homeowner is staining the fence on their own and don’t have a sprayer to complete the project. It would more than likely take a few days to complete.
I remember as a teenager painting our home in Michigan that had cedar siding on it. It took me one week (7 days) to finish the project because I was required to do it all by hand with a brush no rollers where allowed. Back then the consumer didn’t have all the right equipment to perform the job. (Or so I was told, (giggle))
At Fence Makeovers the job may take from beginning to end two days however on most jobs we do everything in one day as we have a repair/cleaning crew and then we have a staining crew.
