HERE ARE SOME DIFFERENT TYPES OF FENCE STAIN YOU CAN PICK FROM
Using a transparent stain allows you to see the natural wood grain of your fence through the stain. It can be clear or tinted to your specifications, and this type of stain is usually applied to new wood because it will not hide stains or other imperfections. You should choose use this type of stain if you have a brand new fence that has been recently installed in the last month or two. This stain will not cover well or look good on older fences.
Semi-Transparent stains are very similar to Transparent stains but introduce delicate color to the wood's surface. Semi-Transparent stains contain the lightest pigmentation designed to accentuate natural wood grain and character. These types of stain look good on most fences and have a variety of colors that give a rustic type look. These types of stain are what most Home Owner Associations will approve when installing a new fence.
Semi-solid stains are much like semi-transparent stains, except that they have a deeper color and show less of the natural wood grain. They provide longer protection and can also be tinted in nearly any color. This stain can cover any existing transparent or semi-transparent stain and is great when you have an older fence about 3-4 years old that doesn't need to be replaced. This stain is great if you want to choose a modern type color and don't want a rustic look on your fence.
Solid color stain looks like paint, but soaks into wood instead of sitting on top of it. As it ages, stain breaks down by fading rather than peeling. Older layers of solid color stain tend to look better than paint does over time.
Solid stain provides a flat finish, which showcases wood grain. This stain lasts the longest and is great for restoring a older fence. This type of stain looks great on treated pine lumber, cedar, or redwood. As long as the wood isn't rotting choose this stain if you don't want to install a new fence.
