Default Staining Cedar Fence with a Brush/Roller

I've got about 300' of cedar fence that needs a coat of stain. That would be a nice little project for my son.

Can you realistically stain a cedar fence and make it look good with just a roller brush/roller? All previous stain was sprayed on, but turning my son loose with a spray rig is not an option.

Iíve heard of people using pump up weed sprayers to apply stain. Not sure if thatís an option.

I’ve used a roller for staining cedar. It worked fine. Granted, it wasn’t 300’ foot of fence...it was a new porch roof/cover. But it looks good, just takes a bit to make sure the stain gets in all of the crevices of the cedar

I used ready seal to darken up the cedar around my house. It went on pretty well with a large paint brush.

I bought this and it worked out great. I'll be using it for other outdoor staining projects.

Thanks for the comments so far. May look into this cheap rig. He'd only have to worry about overspray on about 50' of the fence and I could help him there. Of course, part of me likes the thought of him out there staining that much fence with a brush.

I stained mine with a cheap pump up sprayer from Atwood's. I was able to cut it ~ 50% with thinner with no ill effects to the color.

That’s what I bought and wouldn’t do it any other way.

I also used the Ready Seal stain. Wouldn’t use anything else on my cedar.

Should look at www.wooddefender.com. It’s the best there is in fence stain imo.
