If you had a wood fence installed over the summer, have you stained or sealed it yet? Without proper treatment, the approaching winter can take a big toll on your fence. Staining couldn’t be done during installation because wood requires a few months to cure. But now’s the right time to do it.
Weather plays a role in staining, however. The temperature can’t be any lower than 50 degrees, and you need to find a day when rain isn’t forecast within a 48-hour period before and after the work. It takes about 24 hours for stain to dry, so keep that in mind as well.
