Best Answer

I've used ordinary gloss paint. Rub down and paint. I would guess any paint that says 'suitable for metal' on the tin will be ok.

What kind of paint do you use to paint a fence?

If you are painting a metal fence, electrostatic painting is the way to go. If you are doing it yourself, use an acrylic latex paint. It will hold up to the sun and will last longer and is appropriate for wood, vinyl and metal. Brushing and rolling will get the most paint on the fence, avoiding overspray. If you are hiring a professional to paint a metal fence, then electrostatic painting used correctly will produce the least amount of overspray.
