Fence Staining and Fence Painter Joliet Il
When your fence was first installed, it was regal and an accurate representation of your hard work and prosperity. Now that a significant amount of time has passed, your fence has lost its luster. When your neighbor recently had a new cedar fence installed, the contrast was stark. That’s when you realized that you couldn’t put it off any longer. Your fence was in drastic need of refinishing. You’ve been in denial because time constraints prevented you from mustering up enough energy to do it yourself. Then the thought of paying someone seemed like a waste of good money. Put your worries and fears to the side because Joliet Painters offers affordable fence refinishing for homes and businesses.
Why Seal your Fence?
Joliet receives a considerable amount of precipitation in the form of rain, snow, sleet and hail. In the winter months, your fence contracts. In the summer, it expands. Sealing your fence protects the timber from the elements. Instead of enjoying the benefits of your fence for 3 years, with the proper maintenance, the same fence can endure a lifetime. While wood is a durable material, it is not impervious to mother nature. Consistent upkeep requires time, skill, tools and materials that you may not have. Joliet Painters has everything necessary to keep your fence in pristine condition.
Why Stain your Fence?
The sun is the closest star to planet earth. While it may not be the biggest or the brightest – it’s ours. It has the capacity to keep every living organism alive. The sun also has the power to fade and weather wood until time and UV rays take their toll. Staining your fence protects it from the sun’s powerful rays. Quality stains extend the lifespan of wood fencing. Instead of spending unnecessary resources to demo and reconstruct a new fence, have your existing fence refinished every 2 to 3 years. Investing in your fence before it’s beyond repair is an excellent use of resources.
At Joliet Painters, we prefer the spray/brush technique. We begin the process by inspecting your fence. The painter looks for algae spores, discoloration, splinters and nail pops. She will repair all nail pops, replace all screws and planks. She will power wash the fence for a clean surface prior to applying a sealant. We use a high pressured spray gun to apply an even coat of sealant/stain solution. A wide boar brush is applied to the surface every 3 to 4 feet. This ensures that the solvent seeps into the wood’s pores. It also stops any unsightly drips.
All the debris, dirt, mud and vegetation particles must be removed for stains and sealants to adhere properly. Before power washing equipment was invented, a bucket with soap and a hard bristled brush were used to clean the surface. Fortunately, backs, time and energy are spared with the invention of the high pressured power washer. We are able to restore your fence to its original condition with expert power washing. A microscopic layer of wood is removed in the process to reveal an unbelievably clean surface. This technique rids fences of fungus and discoloration within minutes.
