Frequently Asked Questions: Fence Staining OKC

How much does fence staining cost?

Average: $1500 to $3000 for a full backyard stain. You can learn more on our fence stain pricing page.
Our current price is $1 per square foot of fence. We also have to factor in any additional labor to cover concrete or landscaping by the fence.

How long will the fence stain last?

Wood Defender recommends staining a fence every 2 to 4 years.
This means you will be staining before you see major fading or graying.
Semi-transparent stains will often last a year or more longer than transparent stains.

How long does the fence stain process take?

We can stain most fences in one day.
If the fence needs to be washed before staining, we will need to wait 24-48 hours to let the fence dry.

What should I do to prepare for stain day?

We ask that you move any decor or landscaping items away from the fence before we arrive. Also any sprinklers need to be turned off 24 hours before we arrive.

How long does it take the stain to dry?

The stain should be dry to the touch within 24-72 hours.
You may see some shiny spots for a day or two while the stain finishes soaking in.
It is safe to allow your pets back in the yard as soon as our crew leaves.

How long should I leave my sprinklers off?

We request that you turn your sprinklers off for 24 hours before and after the staining.
That being said, if a little water gets on the fence after staining, it should have no long term affect.

How will I know when it’s time to restain my fence?

The most obvious sign will be a significant fade in the color. Also, if you notice any gray forming on the wood that is a sure sign it’s time to stain again.

What is the best fence stain color for my fence?

We have created a fence stain color selection guide to help you pick your best color.

Our Wood Defender Stain Work in the OKC Metro

Our Fence Staining Process

To ensure beautiful, lasting results every time.

Oklahoma City’s weather can be hard on a fence, pergola or deck. To ensure that our OKC homeowners get the best stain work possible we follow a proven process outlined below.

We have received specialized training from Wood Defender, one of the leading stain manufacturers in America. From this training, we developed our process for creating lasting stain work for all our Oklahoma City customers.

  1. Initial consultation
    We start by listening to you. What would you like your fence stain to look like? What questions do you have and how can we help you protect your outdoor space.
  2. Moisture Check
    Dry wood is critical to the success of any stain work. We use a moisture meter to measure the actual moisture content of your .
  3. Wind Check
    Strong winds are always a concern in the Oklahoma City area. We take precautions for where the wind may blow the stain as we apply it.
  4. Wood Prep
    We use a brush to remove any dirt or dry grass that may have stuck to the bottom of the fence.
  5. Mix Stain
    One of the keys to creating an even, uniform stain is to thoroughly mix the stain before applying.
  6. Mask Surrounding Areas
    Protecting your personal property is very important to us. We make sure to cover any plants, patios, or furniture that is in the area we are staining.
  7. Stain Application
    We apply stain with an airless sprayer which allows us to get stain into all the nooks in the wood. We apply stain thick enough to saturate the wood so that it is thoroughly protected.
  8. Cut In
    To protect your house, all areas next to it or any structure are stained by hand.
  9. Touch Up
    We make sure to walk the entire fence after the stain is applied to make sure there are no areas that have been missed.
  10. Clean Up
    We make sure that your property is as clean when we leave as it was when we arrived.

Best Fence Stain For Oklahoma City

We recommend using a quality oil based penetrating stain to protect your wood fence, deck or pergola. Unlike stains that stay on the surface of the wood, penetrating stains soak down into the wood fibers.

The oil repels moisture, the leading cause of wood rot and warping. We have two types of oil based stain so we can take care of any situation.

Transparent Fence Stain

fence staining bethany ok scaled

Transparent stains highlight the natural beauty of the wood. They are especially attractive on cedar fences, or pergolas.

The transparent stains are recommended for fences that are less than a year old and have not been stained before.

Semi-Transparent Fence Stain

Semi-transparent stains have a stronger pigment than the transparent. The color they produce is more vivid.

Semi-transparent stains are also great for covering more of the imperfections in the underlying wood. This makes them a great choice for older fences or pergolas.
