New Fence Panels

Over the coming weeks I will be purchasing and installing some new fence panels, 6’ wide X 4’ high that I would like to paint/stain black that will be seen from both sides. Plain lapped bottoms with criss cross fancy tops.

If you have done this would you recommend spraying or brushing?

    I think the sprays sound good Simon, but apparently they clog up. The chap delivering fencing timber to me a couple of years back was saying they're hopeless. I use a combination of brush and a roller - which works quite well on smoother areas.

    Doing trellis of any kind is very time consuming though - you spend ages and it looks like you've done nothing...image

    And somewhere on the hill
    Inside the past we hear the bells
    Catching only parts of thoughts
    And fragments of ourselves
    Till we begin
    Again

    I WOULD AGREE THAT BRUSHING IS BETTER THAN SPRAYING. AND THAT IT TAKES FOR EVER.

    ANY CHANCE OF GETTING ASSISTANCE?

    IT'S ONE OF THOSE JOBS, LIKE PODDING PEAS, WHICH ALWAYS SEEMS TO TAKE MUCH LESS TIME WHEN THERE ARE TWO OF YOU TACKLING IT.

    .Sprayed once. . . kept clogging up.  It's been the brush since.

    I use these mini rollers to do the fences. Much quicker than a brush. Still need a brush for the fiddly bits. Doesn't matter if it is the sponge rollers or the sheepskin type.

  • Thank you to all, for sharing your experiences.

  • Definitely brush. It seems to last longer
