Question

staining or sealing a fence


I have a wood fence that has never been stained, treated, sealed, etc. I like the natural look it has. The wood is very rough and looks like someone cut up a tree and nailed it together. What is the best way to keep it natural looking but making it protected to last many years. let me know thank you.

Use clear penetrating sealant or maybe a semi-transparent stain. Either one will protect the wood. No matter what you put on it, it is going to change the color a little.
