Once your wooden fence has been installed, it should be stained soon afterward. Not only can an outdoor-graded stain enhance the color and beauty of a redwood or red cedar fence; it also can protect the wood from the elements. There are two basic ways to apply stain to a wooden fence: with a paint roller made for staining, and with a spray applicator like a high-volume, low-pressure, or HVLP, sprayer. Depending on the type of stain you use—transparent, semi-transparent, or solid color—you’ll have to reapply another coat of stain every two to six years. Check out this video to learn more about staining a fence using a HVLP sprayer.
