I love all of the Finish Max products, but for big projects, the Homeright Finish Max Pro is the best option. It’s more lightweight because the motor is separate of the spray gun. My niece Leann and I made a deal. I needed some old fence boards for my Etsy shop, and she wanted a new fence. I got a great deal on some new boards, and she is carefully taking down the old boards and saving them for me. Then the nice folks at Thompson’s WaterSeal offered me a chance to try out their new waterproofing stains. They have 5 colors and each come in
- Transparent (Provides complete outdoor wood protection by adding subtle color)
- Semi (Adds beautiful color while still allowing some wood grain to be seen)
- Solid (Hides the wood grain while allowing wood texture to show)
So, off I went with my HomeRight Finish Max Pro to tackle Leann’s fence. I don’t remember exactly how many sections of fence she has, but she’s been slowly replacing the boards whenever she gets the time. I of course love the look of the perfectly weathered gray boards.
Leann chose Acorn, in the Transparent finish. I have my trusty Finish Max Pro all ready to make this job a breeze! It’s great for all paints and stains, but because the Thompson’s WaterSeal is water based, it sprayed great and cleanup was easy too!
Using an extension cord, the power cord and the hose on the Finish Max Pro allows me to reach all the way down the front sections of fence. I started on the left and worked toward the right. Leann chose not to replace the 2x4 cross boards, and I like the way the Thompson’s WaterSeal helps all the boards match better, even using the Transparent option.
Leann got in on the action too! She chose to do the wide horizontal spray option for the vertical boards, then spin the nozzle around to do get a vertical spray to do the cross boards. The Finish Max products all have an adjustment that will spray a pattern from 1-6”.
I keep a chip brush in my Finish Max bag—it really comes in handy if I have drips. I just kept it in a tub of water and shook it out if we got too close to the fence and got a run. The Thompson’s WaterSeal is a great consistency for spraying. It does say “do not thin”.
Look how great the fence looks, and how there is very little stain on the grass! That’s my favorite part about the Finish Max products, so little over spray! TIP: The Finish Max Pro comes with two paint cups. We tag teamed this job. While someone was spraying, someone else was filling up the empty cup with stain. It really was a time saver!

She still has a little way to go, but it’s going to look so awesome just in time for Krysta’s 16th birthday party.
