Stain Leaking Through to Your Neighbor’s Side

When staining a fence with an oil-based stain, your neighbor is most likely to receive some stain on his or her side of the fence. How much stain on the other side will depend mainly on what type of fence you have. Oil-based stain is very thin and will find it’s way through most cracks in the fence. The most common place to find stain getting to the other side is through the knotholes. It’s best to always let your neighbor know what to expect prior to staining your fence.
