Fence Refinishing in London, Ontario


Bear Property Cleaning provides fence cleaning and full restoration options complete with sanding and staining.

Fence Cleaning & Refinishing

Have you looked at your wooden fence and wondered what happened to it? Many people make the mistake of assuming that as wood gets older, there is no hope - or that it simply needs to be replaced. This is completely untrue! Most wood can be restored to its former glory, all it takes is the correct approach. Whether your fence is pressure treated or cedar, we can make it look brand new.

Fence Restoration


Do you have a wooden fence that looks worse for wear? Having your fence restored can bring back a ton of character to your backyard. Our wood restoration processes will ensure that your grey, weathered fence will look years younger. If preferred, we can also apply a seal or stain to the wood once it is all cleaned up.


When we seal or stain wood, we focus on boosting the natural marks, knots, and grooves of every board. The result? A beautiful masterpiece that will make neighbors jealous left and right. Our stains are carefully chosen for Ontario weather, and we only use products that we deem will be a good investment for the money you pay. You can pick out your own color, or have one of our experienced technicians help you decide what would look best with your home and landscaping.

Our Process

Soft Wash


We begin any wood project by soft washing the fence. This step ensures any algae, dirt, mildew, and mold is removed from the wood. Our soft wash unit releases an environmentally friendly solution at under 100 psi onto your surface (using pressure on any type of wood is a big mistake as it can cause irreversible damage). Once this solution has eaten away at any organic  growth, we restore the PH balance of the wood, which results in brightening.



Once the fence has dried we begin sanding everything down. This part of the process is different for every project as some sections of wood need more touching up than others. Sanding is done to remove old paint and stain, areas where algae or mildew has penetrated deeply, and to smooth out splinters or any rough edges. The goal for this stage is to provide a smooth surface for oil penetration.

Oil Coating / Stain Application / Painting

Every homeowner is different when it comes to how they prefer their fence to look. As a general rule: if you have a wood surface that has been stained before, stain can often be used again (of if you haven't had anything put on). However, if you have had a solid paint on your wood this will need to be followed up with another solid paint. Any colour can be used to replace the current paint. While a homeowner can go from a painted surface to a stained surface, this process takes a considerable amount of time as every inch of the deck needs to be sanded in this case. An example of the four colour options can be seen below: cedar - pecan - chestnut - walnut.
