Answer for Fence Painting Problem

Causes: Problem with the stain. Another possibility is wet wood when stain was applied. Could be cheap stain or a bad batch. I'm not familiar with the brand so I can't say if it is a good stain. You might want to contact the manufacture for more info.

If it was me, I would pressure wash and use Simple Green (injected into the pressure washer). This wouldn't be a hard wash, just get off what wants to come off. Allow to dry completely then restain with Sherwin Williams Woodscapes solid colored stain.

Answer for Fence Painting Problem

In retrospect I actually can think of one other thing to try first (try a sample area about 3ft x 3ft)… After 24hs dry time from last rain, wipe off drips etc with rag and Alcohol then coat the surface with Helmsman Spar Varnish, use Clear and use a Satin Finish…

If it works for the next rain… finish the job with this method, else resort to my previous answer's method…

Answer for Fence Painting Problem

Unfortunately at this point you really have only one option… Paint it with Exterior Oil Base House paint (color of choice), but first you MUST Prime it (after 24hrs dry time after rain and after wiping off any drips etc with rag and Alcohol) with an Exterior Oil Base Stain Sealer…

Use high quality materials from Sherwin Williams for best results… Good Luck!
