As the weather begins to break, many homeowners are looking forward to tackling their outdoor home improvement projects. One of the more common and popular projects for homeowners is to paint their wood fence. Applying paint or stains to your wood fence can help maintain its structure while also breathing new life into a potentially older fence. However, there are many things to keep in mind when beginning this wood fence project. Approaching your fence in the wrong way could lead you to accidentally damage your fence instead of improve it.
