Pick a suitable day to do the painting. Certain weather conditions are ideal for fence-painting. Pick a day with no rain in the forecast. Ideally, paint on a day with calm winds and ample cloud cover. Breezes can kick up debris that can stick to your paint job; direct sunlight makes the paint dry too fast and saps its protective properties.
Decide how you want to paint a fence.
- If you have a long fence, you probably will want to use an industrial spray gun to complete the job quickly. Aim lengthwise, along the grain of the wood. Spray downwind and wear a respirator. Be sure to cover plants to protect them from overspray. Always keep a brush handy, even if you opt for a sprayer, in case you need to do any touch-up work.
If you have a smaller project, you probably can complete the job using a roller on flat surfaces and a brush for detailed, hard-to-reach sections.
Wrought iron fence: Because they're often intricately designed, it's best to paint iron fences by hand to get optimum coverage. A single heavy coat of enamel or automotive epoxy paint usually is enough
