Staining Cedar Fence


Hi all! My Brother wants to stain his new cedar fence. I?ve heard that it?s not a good idea to immediately stain or paint new pickets due to lifting that may occur due to treatment from the mills. TIA!!

Re: Staining Cedar Fence


You can stain it as soon as you install it. It should be good enough.

Re: Staining Cedar Fence


Deckboards can be glazed over from production so they can resist staining. Rough stuff is good to go. I'm a fan of oil based stains if possible, soaks in better.

Oil is always preferred in my book

Re: Staining Cedar Fence


Use a cheap pump up garden sprayer, and just toss a when you're done.

Re: Staining Cedar Fence


Pump it on, brush it out with broom.

Cedar will actually take oil stain better a few days after getting wet. It opens the pores, & allows better penetration, which we can all agree is much better.

Re: Staining Cedar Fence


Great if you have two painters, and access to an airless - spray it on with the other backrolling.
