Painting wooden fence and railing


I would stain it. Paint will peel over time where stain tends to flake off layer by layer.

Painting wooden fence and railing


Spoke with a few other guys (who all agreed to stay away from thompsons) and they recommended Lowe's Olympic Maximum Solid Stain. Since I'm covering the remains of a dark color with a lighter color, I'll most likely need two coats, but they said two coats should cover the old color fine, and last as long as anything else on the market.

Any input on that line of thought?

I think that's a good plan. I don't know much about Olympic, but I've not heard bad about it, the write up on the Olympic site looks positive. The most important thing is using stain, as opposed to paint. As Matt said, paint and stain fail differently, stain is easier at retreatment time. Also, paint doesn't breathe as well as stain. Paint on freestanding, exposed wood is a bad scene. I did a large deck last year where the customer had sent the hubbie out to "fix" the deck. He bought paint, what a nightmare. Everything but the floor was painted.
