It depends on your goal. If you want it to age gracefully and can accept a weathered look, then stain it and let it go longer.

If you want the wood to last the longest, use an oil based high solids paint which blocks MUCH more UV. It will need repainted more often to look pretty, but will also have more preservation from the oil in the paint. Hint: If you pick a color similar to the underlying wood color, it will look acceptable longer.

Pine is a soft wood and usually does better with water based products.

Thank you for the feedback. I understand that nothing is permanent. I'd be fine having the fence redone every 4-5 years. Keep the advice coming!

Two basic choices: film finish (paint) and penetrating finish (stain)

Film finishes have more even color, protect wood better, but require more prep for good adhesion and require recoating periodically.

Penetrating finishes can be absorbed unevenly by pine, resulting in color blotches, and don’t protect wood as well, but they don’t chip or flake and are easier to retouch.

Go with a stain.

I disagree that water based stain is better for pine (or much of anything). Oil base penetrates and protects better. But, the market is changing and moving towards low VOC water based products more and more. And, the marketing indicates that water based products are improving. I recommend not using anything that forms a film.

The site below seemed to have some of the best stain info, but they have changed it and I can no longer find extensive reviews of most of the stain products (i.e., Cabots, Penofin, Olympic, etc.) They seem to just list their best picks. Correct me if you find the other products reviewed like they used to do. But, it is still a good site to study and glean information.

That site seems to recommend TWP 100 line stain. Any comments on that versus Penofin?
