Before doing so I thought it wise to ask if anyone knows the following:
- Is there a brand that is better and longer lasting than others?
- Technique: Brush Vs Spray
- Is using a spray much quicker, what prepping is required?
- By using the traditional method of using a brush still the best, in way of finish and protection?
I use a god fence preservative - you can decide which is best.
Brush is best - there is a fence brush the thickness of a typical vertical post. Spray goes all over the place and not enough on the wood. Same for roller IME.
You need to wash off any green algae growth before staining. Should last 5 years when stained at least.
