Staining our fence?
1 Attachment(s)
Our fence is a mere 8 months old but our builder failed to tell us that we should have sealed the wood (that or they just forgot to do it).

So in the 3 months or so that we've had our sprinkler system running, our brand new fence is now a solid two-tone of beautiful new wood and wood that looks like it's 30 years old.

Sealing it at this point isn't going to fix the coloring of our fence, so I'm curious what the best method would be to go about staining the fence to get it close to its original color.

Do we have to somehow discolor the "good" part of the fence so we can get an even staining?

(The attached picture below shows some of the damage. I'll need to take a better picture tomorrow to show the full extent)

easy way to get some help
Get on the phone tomorrow and call a few fence company's and get their idea's.

Chances are you will have to stain very very dark and or paint :censored:

I hate painted fences :censored:

A deck restoring system, such as Cabot's or Wolman's wood cleaner then brightener
Or, or a more environmentally safe procedure, a DeckBright or Wash-Safe peroxide type cleaner/brightener
