Wood Fence Stain Calculator

Pin It

If you need to stain your wood fence, it can be tricky to figure out how much stain you will need.

This simple wood fence stain calculator will give you an estimate of how much stain you will need to cover a simple wooden fence once, using a roller or paintbrush.

If you have a more complex wood fence, you plan to apply more than one coat, or you are going to use a higher waste application method like spray-painting, remember to increase the quantity accordingly.

You will need the manufacturer's estimated coverage rate for this calculator. This can usually be found on the product can, or you can look on the manufacturer's product datasheet.
