If you have a fence, you might not be all that pleased with its appearance. If it's the color that is bothering you, then there is an easy fix for this. You can have your fence painted, no matter what type of fence you have, with the exception of a vinyl fence which has a non-porous surface that most paint won't adhere to. If you have a fence that is already painted, the paint may look bad or you might want a different color than what it currently has and these are some of the other reasons to paint your fence. Here is information on fence painting you should know about:
Painting your fence can transform the whole look of your property
When you paint your fence, it can really change the look of your home's exterior. Since the fence goes around the whole yard, the fence and this includes the color of it, will be the first thing people see when approaching your house. This is what will help with the curb appeal of your home. However, you need to be careful to choose colors that will create a nice look and not ones that will look strange.
For example, if you have a beige home with brown trim and a traditional landscape with grass, trees, and bushes, then if you have your fence painted blue, it won't match anything, and it will just look out of place. However, if you paint the fence the same beige or brown that is used on your home, then it will tie the fence into your home in a nice way that creates a smooth transition from the edge of your home all the way to it.
Painting the fence can help make the fence more visible
Depending on the location of your fence, you may have had problems with people hitting it and leaving you needing to have it repaired. If this is the case, then you are going to want to do something to make the fence more visible at night. The most obvious color to paint the fence for visibility purposes would be white. A white fence will capture the light from the moon, from streetlights, and from car headlights much better and decrease the chances of someone not seeing it and hitting it.
Painting the fence can protect it
Another reason you might want to paint your fence is to help to protect it from excessive amounts of moisture. Painting the fence can help to protect wood fencing from moisture issues like swelling and rotting. It can help to protect other metal fences from issues like rusting.
