What's the Quickest and Easiest Way to Paint a Fence?

Painting fences, decking, and garden furniture can be one of those jobs even the most diligent among us gets a mental block about.


The time it takes, the fiddliness of the job and the mess you invariably make.

Well, we reckon we might have found the all-in-one solution for painting fences (panel or otherwise), decking or garden furniture.

It's the Black & Decker DHVLP hand held spray gun.

What are the key benefits of painting with this rather than a sprayer or a brush?

First off, non-stop painting action!

Because the Black & Decker DHVLP doesn't rely on you manually keeping the sprayer pressurised, you're able to paint and paint until the easy-fill canister is depleted. One of the big draw-backs of using a pressurised sprayer is when you get to the end of the painting job, but the sprayer is still pressurised, it's a paint in the neck to get depressurise so that you can empty the last of the paint and get cleaned up.

Secondly, complete flow control!

Black and Decker have built in all sorts of control over the flow of paint, whether it's the width of the spray, right down to how much paint the gun fires. You've got control over it. Have you ever tried using the exact amount of paint or stain needed on a slatted wooden fence using a brush? Yeah, exactly. We reckon the DHVLP sorts this out for you.

Third, speed!

This is hard to describe, so the best bet is probably just to watch our demo video on Toolstop TV, click here.

Fourth, cleaning up!

As you saw on the video, cleaning up after you is dead easy. Unscrew the cannister, pour the paint or stain back into the tin, then run the thing under the tap. We timed John cleaning up after our demo and it took around 8 minutes to have the DHVLP looking box fresh again, ready for the next job.

Labour saving device?

Yes, it's a cliche, one that manufacturers trot out at every opportunity, but we really do reckon the DHVLP is going to save you time, effort and money. So, this weekend, what's putting you off getting that fence, those chairs or the deck ready for winter with a fresh coat of paint or stain?

Thank you for posting, this is really helpful.
Is it suitable for indoor use as well? Have you any experience using it for this purpose?
