This 8-year-old pressure treated pine wood fence was restored using one of Woodrich Brands Project Kits. The fence was installed in Palm Beach Shores, FL and left unprotected. Over time the wood had turned grey due to exposure to sunlight and the elements. Overall, the wood is in great shape. However, restoration and a good, quality wood fence stain could improve the fence.
Staining a Pine Wood Fence Involves Three Steps
The project kit comes with a cleaner, a brightener and an oil-based wood stain for protection.
The first step was to apply the wood cleaner. This works to kill and mold and mildew and lift out and deep down dirt or grime. The cleaner also softens the dead grey wood fibers on the surface of the wood. After applying the cleaner, a gentle power washing can safely clean the wood and remove the grey.
Next, apply the brightener. This step pH balances the wood to return the pine fence to a fresh cut appearance. pH balancing is an important step for conditioning the wood for the stain application. Use a power washer or simple garden hose to rinse off the brightener.
The Last Step of Applying a Wood Fence Stain
For the final step, the pine fence received an application of Woodrich Brand Timber Oil. For this project, the homeowner selected the brown sugar color. Woodrich Brand stains use Transparent Oxide pigments, providing lasting UV protection while still preserving the natural beauty of the wood. When applied to a pressure treated pine fence the result is a very natural finish. This oil enhances and protects the wood grain and natural beauty.
