Q. When will my fence be replaced?

Q. Can I stain or paint my fence if it is owned by the Metro District?
A.
If your fence is still one of the original wood fences, yes you can stain your fence. If your fence has been replaced with the new Trex fencing, no you cannot stain your fence. When you stain your fence, please ensure the new color does not spill over the top or sides of the wood panels and is not visible from the exterior of your property.

Q. Who stains the inside of my fence?
A. Homeowners are responsible for staining the inside of the fence, or the side of the fence facing their property. The Metro District is responsible for staining the exterior of the fence, or the side of the fence that faces a parkway.

If you would like to stain the inside of your fence to match the stain used by the Metro District, take a paint sample from the wood fence into a local paint shop. If you are choosing a different color, please ensure the new color does not spill over the top or sides of the wood panels and is not visible from the exterior of your property.

If you would like to stain your wood fence to match an adjacent new Trex fence, contact the Metro District to get a paint sample of the new stain.

Q. Can I attach anything to the fence?
A. No, you cannot attach anything to the fence. If you attach something to the fence, you may damage the structural integrity of the fence which may shorten its lifespan.
