Fence Staining and Painting Schaumburg Il
Fences are designed to separate or section of sections of your property, but they do not need to be just a necessary requirement. Your fences can be turned into features, or just simply visually pleasing dividers if you have designed and maintained them well. Schaumburg Painters love creating special places for our clients and will gladly offer suggestions as well as share their wealth of knowledge so that our clients can make the most of their fences. Here we give some brief advice of what you can do to make your fences more than just a basic fence.
Design & Finish
There are a range of common fence designs that you are able to customize and make unique to your space. Whether you want to go for the classic picket fence, the trendy decorative stained timber fence or the statement wrought iron fence, we are able to help customize each of these as you require. Painting can be done on either timber or metals which helps to make each easily versatile to suit your needs. Our team are always delighted when we get asked to give guidance on the design of our client’s fences. Working with paint, we are visually minded people who have a flare for design and perfect execution.
Before the fence refinishing is able to commence, we must first make sure that the surface is prepared for either the stain or paint to be applied. If there is peeling paint on the surfaces, we will first need to completely remove this. It may also be required that your timber fences are sanded back to ensure they are smooth and in the best condition to absorb a stain or to hold paint. Correct surface preparation is the key to your fence refinishing project lasting a decent amount of time to save you money, as well as keep your fences looking fresher for longer.
When the design and surface preparation elements are completed, we then speak with our clients about the requirements for the execution process. The fences will require time to cure property and in this time will be unable to be touched. In the warmer months this can be completed in as little as an hour, but in other cases it can take a while longer. This may mean that your pets need to be temporarily relocated to ensure they don’t damage the fence or harm themselves. Schaumburg Painters also take into consideration weather elements, for example if strong winds are predicted, we may recommend delaying the project as dirt or sand flying directly onto a wet surface will affect the finishes.
As fences are external structures, they also require protection from the elements. If you are having your fences painted, we always recommend the use of weatherproof paint to help protect against rain and sun damage. If you are having your fences stained, our team will talk to you about a sealant. This will also help to protect your timber from being so easily damaged by the elements.
