1)Take Care of Basic Needs First
The fun part of upgrading a fence is changing it decoratively. You may be tempted to paint right away. However, what you should do is make sure that the quality of your wood is still in excellent condition. Powerwash your wooden fence with caution to remove dirt that may have piled up. Then, check to see if you need to invest in board or screw replacement.
2)Stain or Paint Your Wooden Fence
After taking care of essential maintenance, then you can paint or stain your fence. The purpose of staining or painting is to add visual appeal. If you want your fence’s aesthetics to be subtle, classic, and elegant, then a wood stain is optimal. Dark paint can also help you achieve your goal. If you want a unique fence, bright colors are best. White is classic but gives a pop. More eccentric colors include greens or reds.
3)Post Toppers and Landscaping
Did you know that there are post toppers and caps that can help your deck to stand out? Post caps sit on the top of posts to protect the heads of the posts from weather damage as well as help to decorate them. One of the best choices is to invest in vinyl caps. Wood caps, just like your wooden fences itself has the possibility of degrading.
