How to paint fences

Painting your fence has been made easy with the Dulux® RapidFinish™ multi purpose spray unit so you can spend less time painting than if using a brush or roller. Just see how easy it is!

  1. We grow plants along them, rest things against them and leave stuff around them. So before you paint your fence, tie back and cover your garden, remove any bikes or cars, brush away any dirty and lay down a drop cloth.

  2. To ensure you achieve the best results possible, use a wire brush to remove imperfections on older fences and use Dulux Prep Wash to remove mould.

  3. To make life easier begin by loading your brush and painting the board that runs along the bottom of your fence. Be careful not to pick up any dirt from the ground. Then paint in the valleys where the roller can’t reach. Once you’ve painted all three sides of the valley with an even coat, you can use a roller to paint the vertical timbers.

    For a smooth finish use your roller in a vertical up and down motion.

  4. If you’re using a spray gun you’re about to have a lot of fun in half the time. After reading the instructions carefully, point the spray gun directly ahead and spray up and down. Release your finger from the trigger when you get to the top and bottom to prevent too much paint forming in one area and dripping.


    Don’t paint on a windy day unless you’d like your car or house to match the colour of your fence.
