The answer will depend on the type of fence you have erected and your personal taste.

The most common reason for staining a fence is two-fold, esthetics (the look of the thing) and preservation (stain helps to extend the life of some types of wood).

For un-treated wood (except cedar) you can and in most areas should stain your fence immediately you finish putting it up.
Semi-transparency or solid, latex/acrylic or oil based stains all work and have various pros and cons.

For cedar fences, personal taste is your best guide. This is one of the woods where preservation is less needed. Teak and cypress being two others (but the prices for these can be prohibitive).
Good cedar will "silver" within a year or two, depending on your area, and the amount of "weather" you experience. If you like the look of silvered cedar, it is completely un-necessary to do anything but wait.
If, however, you do not like the "silvered" look, the fence will need to be stained, usually after the first year.

Pressure treated wood should be allowed to weather a bit before staining. It usually comes with a bit of colour from the chemicals used in the process, so it is best to let that fade, particularly if you are using a semi-transparent stain.
Depending on your area and the amount of "weather" you get this will take anywhere from 2 months to a year.
Once the wood has started to grey give it a good cleaning, allow to dry and apply your stain.
If you are using a solid stain, the timing is less important, you can usually paint it with a solid stain within weeks of finishing your project.

If you have painted the neighbor's side of a wood fence can the neighbor make you replace it with a new wood fence?

Perhaps you have mixed up your words in your question. It makes sense if read as, "If you painted your side of your neighbor's wood fence can the neighbor make you replace it with a new wood fence?" If that is the case, you had no right to paint your neighbor's fence without their permission and the answer to your question is they can sue you in court for damaging their property. If they sue you in court and prevail, they have the right to be restored to the position they were in before you damaged their property. If the fence is new the court may award enough damages to cover a new fence. If the fence is older, the court may pro-rate the value. While your neighbor cannot make you replace the fence, the court can and you may have the added burden of legal expenses. You should try to negotiate a friendly agreement to resolve the issue either by repainting the fence to please your neighbor or perhaps offering to share the cost of a new fence. As a lifetime lesson, it is more prudent to let the neighbor know your intentions, even if it is your side of the fence, or if you think you are doing them a favor.

Can a neighbor refuse to allow their existing fence to be joined by a new one on the adjacent property?

Yes, they can refuse. The fence is their property, so you must have permission to join their fence to yours. If not, you can build to the edge of your property line, leaving a gap between the two. . You can have your property surveyed to determine your exact property line, and if their fence is on the line you can connect at those points only. You can also make them remove the fence if it's on your property.

Do you have to varnish new furniture or is stain enough?

Answer . New unfinished furniture can be finished many ways. the answer your question will be determined by how you want the furniture to look, how much protection will the wood need against weather exposure ( indoors or outdoors) and how much time you are willing to put into the finish work. Stain by itself usually will not be enough unless the product you choose is a finish that has stain included in the mix.

If you erect a new fence owned by you do you have to face the good side to your neighbors?

What is a stain?

How do you measure a fence for staining?

Because wooden fence will suck in the stain, you need to estimatemore than the actual surface of the fence. You do not need toaccount the spaces inbetween the planks, as that´s your reserve,the wood will suck in as much. So basically you manage just by measuring the length of the fencetimes the height of the fence and doubling that value (you want tostain both sides, yes?) Depending on the darkness you want and the dryness (suckingcapacity) of the wood you might even need to double or quadruplethat. You can calculate the EXACT surface area of the fence, if you want.But practice has taught me you will end up buying too little of thestain that way. But for the curiosity sake, here's the formula: spaces = measure one gap (height x width) and multiply it for thehow many there are actual surface area = ( (entire lenght of the fence - spaces) x(entire height of the fence) X ( thickness of the plank) ) X 2 If you have separate runners, support beams or decorations, youneed to measure them same way and add to the above. It is enoughyou measure one and then multiply the result by 2 (both sides!) andthen by the amount how many there is. Because the suction of the stain, you need to multiple this resultat least by 1.5. Read the instructions on your stain jar. But, as I said, a rough estimate really is enough. Remember, it is better to buy a lot excess at the beginning than goback mid-way your work. If the stain is factory made, the shade-might- be the same. But usually a big jar shop-mixed stain is notthe same color as a small container that has been made with thesame mixing formula. The formula has been made for largequantities, so the shade will not be the same in smaller measures.So, if you want your fence one-colored, plan ahead!

Can a neighbor remove our wire fence to put up a new cedar privacy fence even though our fence has been there over thirty years and even if the survey says our fence is 8 inches into their property?

When can I paint or stain a new deck?

Don't paint it when your weather is very hot or very windy. The paint will crack or blister. The wind could blow dust or smething else onto the paint. You can stain it any time.

A general rule of thumb for laundry is to use a commercial pretreatment and rinse the stain before you put it in the washing machine.

Yes I buy 1 quart cans of pigment from our local hardware store and mix 5 gallons of used motor oil with half a can of pigment.

Recommended only for use on unpainted wood since motor oil, by design, virtually never dries but will soak into bare or stained wood.

How do you do fencing?

Fencing is a sport of three different types, or styles of fighting: Saber, Epee, and Foil. These three different styles have different target areas, rules, and ways of getting a touch (a point). Saber: Target Area: The torso, mask, and arms. Way of Scoring: You can get a touch by slashing your weapon on your opponent. Weapon: A saber sword is usually the sword you see in movies or plays. It has a bellguard, which curves around to connect to the grip. Epee: Target Area: The whole body, and yes, including the shoes. Way of Scoring: You can get a touch by stabbing your opponent. Weapon: An epee sword is noticeably heavier than any other sword. It is basically a saber sword, with a larger bellguard and, of course, heavier. Foil: Target Area: The torso, excluding the arms and mask. Way of Scoring: You can get a touch by stabbing your opponent. Weapon: A foil blade is just a bell guard and grip. If you can imagine a sword (with a fencing blade), and a bell guard instead of the hilt, this is a close image of a foil sword. The grip can either be a pistol grip or french grip. This is the weapon I favor, and my personal favorite weapon is a Belgian-grip Foil.

You just moved in a new house When you were building your fence they found out that your neighbor has built there fence 5 feet in your property What should you do?

First of all if your neighbor built a fence why in the world would you want to waste the money and materials to put up another one? Technically you can have him remove it and put it on his property or you could sell him the 5 ft, of land. The thing I would do is to let him keep the fence where it is with the understanding thatit belongs to you now and if ever the fence has to be replaced it is to be put where it belongs.. Another view When you bought your new house you may have used a lawyer to do the necessary legal stuff for you, to ensure you know exactly what land you own and to ensure that you have full legal title to it..

That doesn't have to mean it will be super expensive though. There are a lot of college students out there who spent their high-school summers staining decks and would be happy to do it for $10-15/hour.

What is a fence?

How do you fence?

You will need the following equipment to fence: 1. A chest protector, usually made of plastic; 2. a foil, epee, or saber (the difference is in the size of the weapons and the target areas) 3. a fencing mask 4. a glove for your dominant hand 5. a white jacket 6. an underarm protector and if you are fencing electric, as opposed to 'dry' - 7. a body cord, and 8. a lamé Begin with your feet at a 90˚ angle to each other with your dominant foot pointed forwards (if you are left-handed, your left foot should be forward; right-handed, right foot). To begin a bout, put your heels together and point your weapon at the opponent and then into the air. This is called a salute. Here are several of the basic moves used in fencing: ON GUARD POSITION This is the position generally used when not advancing, retreating, or lunging. Put your dominant foot pointed forwards and the other foot at a 90˚ angle to it. Your dominant hand will be holding the foil and your other hand will be raised in the air above your shoulder. Bringing the hand forward in front of the chest is covering target area; it is discouraged and can lead to painful results if you are hit in the hand with an opponent's weapon! ADVANCING This is fairly simple. Bring the front foot forward (this is the one that is pointed forwards) and then the back foot to follow it. They should come no closer than shoulder-width. Try not to shuffle. RETREATING This follows about the same pattern as advancing, except this time you should bring your back foot backwards and the front foot should follow. Again, keep your feet shoulder-width apart. LUNGING Begin by extending your sword arm. Bring your front foot forwards to reach towards the opponent. The back foot should not move. As you bring your front foot forwards, bring the back arm down so that it is parallel to the body. To recover from the lunge, bend the arms once again, then bend your front foot and bring it back to the starting position. These are the basic principles of fencing.

Why do you say you recommend to wait after a year to paint stain a cedar fence?

Often, it is recommended that you wait a year to paint a wood fence to allow time for it to weather to the point where all the tannin, or in the case of pressure treated wood, all the chemicals have leeched from the wood. There are stains made to go over unweathered wood, and you can paint the fence with 100% acrylic paint or solid stain before it's weathered, but you may see tannin or chemical staining over time and it will take longer for the leeching to complete. I wouldn't recommend using oil based primer, paints or stains because they could peel off over time when coating unweathered woods. Woods that don't leech tannin, like pine, oak and spruce can be primed and painted immediately.
