This may not be the best place to post this but I couldn't find a forum for fence discussion. . .
There is a 6' wood fence (neighbors fence). They painted the fence 2 summers ago while we were gone. . . it needed to be painted but they painted it the awful redwood stain. I hate it and want to paint/stain it on my side anyway.
I was thinking of a solid base stain. I would like to do it in a natural wood color if it will cover the red. if not I will go with a dark gray. Has anyone stained over a redwood fence before? will it take a bazillion coats? Should I pressure wash it first and see if takes some of the red off? There was only one coat applied back when he did it so there are some spots where the sprinkle hits that has faded quite a bit.
Is it worth it or should I just live with the red?
