What does a fence painting service include?

Fence painting services mean more than just applying a fresh coat of paint. Your painter can work with you to make sure your fence not only looks great but can also withstand rain, wind, heat, and other weather damage. Using the best preparation and application techniques, fence painters on Airtasker can help boost your home’s curb appeal through the following services:

Fence painting

Painting your fence is a quick and easy way to refresh the look of your home. Not only does it increase your property’s aesthetic appeal, but it also extends the life of your fencing. When you book a timber fence painting service on Airtasker, local painters can handle the entire process–from carrying out the required prep work and applying the paint to creating a lasting finish.

The painting work starts by washing your fence to get rid of dirt, debris, and other loose paint and make sure the surface is clean and smooth for paint application. Afterwards, a layer of primer is applied to ensure better adhesion of the paint.

Once the primer is fully dry, your painting expert will get right to work. They can use a variety of methods, namely spraying, rolling, or brushing, to coat your fences with your preferred colour and finish thoroughly. 

If painting isn’t enough, you can also hire someone to put up a new fence that matches the look and feel of your home. You can even get a specialist to add panels to your wooden fence to increase your family’s safety and security.

Fence staining

Fence staining is an excellent choice for those wanting a natural-looking wooden fence that complements the outdoors. To maximise the natural grain of wooden fences, fence painters near you can add a fresh coat of stain using a solid brush. Once it’s dry and sealed, your fences are now protected from harsh UV rays and other elements. 

Fence painters on Airtasker can also guide you in choosing a stain that matches your entire garden or backyard so that you can create a stylish, cohesive look for your property. If you’re looking to upgrade not just your fence but your entire outdoor space, you can also find an expert who can redesign your garden based on your current style and taste.

Afterwards, you can hire someone to take care of your newly designed garden, so you don’t have to take time out of your busy schedule. If you plan to get more out of your space, you might want to consider getting a contractor to build you a gorgeous patio as well!

Thornbury VIC, Australia

Paint a 6ft paling fence which measures 97m in total for a new house. Supply Black paint which needs to have a solar u.v guard in it but no particular brand is required. Because the house has been freshly painted spraying will cause black dots to form on the white paint of the house as the fence is within 1m. Therefore either brush or roller is the only method I will accept

This is about a job inspection only to obtain advice and binding quote for: staining my rooftop timber screening, the backyard slat fence and a standard paling fence.

Paint fence


Elwood VIC, Australia

3rd Feb 2024

I will supply paint. One side of my back fence needs painting. A spray gun will cover 90% of what needs to be done. I power washed it today. I also painted the top section today by hand, as I don’t want to spray gun that area as paint will go into neighbours drive. I finished all but two sections as you can see- I couldn’t reach the last two sections / too high for me (I’m short). So I need (1) hand paint the very small top section area as noted (2) spray paint the rest. I estimate 18 mtr long. Stand fence height at 1.9 I think - Due date: Needs to be done on Sunday, 4 February 2024

Lovely job of painting my back fence. On time, looks great and left everything neat and today. Absolutely recommend !
