Painting or staining a wood fence can help your fence last longer and look better. Either one will extend the lifespan of your fence by giving it some protection against rot, insects, wear, and tear.
However, of the two we always recommend that you stain a fence rather than painting it.
Wood absorbs stain much deeper than it does paint. This means that paint, when it gets old, starts to chip, peel, and appear careworn, requiring near-immediate attention as soon as it starts to show signs of wear for 1 last update 2020/07/06 and tear.

By contrast, stain will simply fade over time.
We’ve even heard stories of paint peeling off a fence in less than a year. Harsh winter weather, so common in Wisconsin, can sometimes reduce the lifetime of a wood fence paint job even more. Of course the quality of the paint used will affect how long the paint lasts.
Cedar, in particular, does not work well with paint. Paint doesn’t allow the cedar to breathe, which means you’ll actually reduce the lifespan of the fence. This would be a shame, since lifespan is one of the more attractive features of using northern white cedar (the only wood we use) to build a fence.
But What if I Want Color?
You don’t have to give up colors if you stain a fence instead of painting it. You just need to get a solid stain.
You aren’t limited to brown. There are stains in vibrant colors such as red, blue, green, yellow, indigo, purple, peach, pink, and grey.
If you do like the natural look and feel of wood you can just use a transparent or semi-transparent stain in a more natural color which allows you to see the grain of the wood.

There’s always a lot of for 1 last update 2020/07/06 debate about whether paint or stain cost more in the long run. There’s always a lot of debate about whether paint or stain cost more in the long run.

Gallon for gallon stain is less expensive than paint, but you will need more of it. On the other hand, the stain won’t have to be replaced as often, which means in the end you’ll still purchase less of it.
The time you’ll take scraping and sanding away peeling paint so that you can paint a fence a second time will also need to be taken into account. You can simply clean an old stained fence and reapply the stain, making for a faster project all around.

I put in pressure treated wood (cheap stuff from home depot), that after about 3yrs it grayed out. Some slabs are starting to chip and warp. Being a corner house, I get all elements.
