It’s a great time of year to weather seal your existing wood or vinyl fence.  The first step to perfectly treating your fence for longevity is to pressure wash it (also called power wash).  It’s a simple process that will take the old layers of graying fence off, exposing fresh wood underneath.  When you are finished, your fence will almost look new.
