Top Fence Painting related questions

How long it takes to paint a fence depends on your fence’s size and height and its current condition. On average, painting a regular five to six-feet fence shouldn’t take longer than a few hours. If your fence has a lot of dirt, grime, and peeling paint, prepare to allot extra time since your painter has to get rid of any damage before applying a coat of paint.

You don’t have to be present for your painter to start the job, but you can if you want to keep track of your fence painting projects. If you prefer for your painter to go ahead, just make sure that your painter has access to your property, so they can get straight to work on painting your fence as soon as they arrive at the appointed time.

There are many ways to prepare your garden or backyard for the fence painting work. Depending on your landscaping, you can trim back all trees and shrubs and leave a safe space of one to two feet from the fence line. You can also cover your shrubs, bushes, and other greenery with a drop cloth or tarp to prevent them from getting damaged during the painting work. Lastly, you can remove all backyard furniture to avoid accidents.

No. Your painter can bring the required supplies, including paints, spray guns, and brushes, so they can immediately get to work on updating your fence. They can also go to the hardware store to pick up any required materials on their way to your location. But in case you have any tools on hand, feel free to let your painter use them.

How long fence painting lasts depends on your local climate and the quality of the painting job. In general, fence painting lasts anywhere between five to six years. If your painter does the proper preparation and uses high-quality paint, then the paint job may last a bit longer than most. On the other hand, if your area experiences considerable rainfall or harsh heat, then your fence may require more frequent maintenance.

You can maintain your newly painted fence in several ways. The most important thing to remember is to clean and wash them regularly using a specially-formulated cleaner or even simple soap and water. You may also use a scrub or a pressure washer to get rid of any stains and scuffs. Lastly, keep on top of the mould, rot, or any damage and get them repaired as soon as possible to avoid further issues down the road.

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!
