Planet perfect painting maintenance and repair
Answer: In most cases
Explanation: Yes, if you want to labor over it to do it properly. To correctly paint the fence, since they are painted electrostatically at the factory, you need to remove as much rust as possible from the fence using a wire brush. Hose the entire fence down and make sure you have all the grass, pinestraw, and cobwebs off of it. Then apply a rust-stopping spray to any areas that are very rusted. After the rust-stop inhibitor, add a coat of metal primer to the fence if it has rust or an old coat of paint on it. Then, lay a large piece of cardboard on the ground, tight against the bottom of the fence. Push the grass at the bottom of the fence down with the cardboard, enabling you to reach the bottom. Kneel on the cardboard and begin rolling metal paint on the fence with a long nap roller. Work down the length of the fence, moving the cardboard as you go. Paint the fence from the top to bottom, getting as close to the ground as possible. Use a brush to get near the ground and beside the poles. Once you have completed one side, repeat this process on the other side. If thjs makes you think replacement might be cheaper, you might be right and I'd certainly get prices on that before taking this on. That being said, if your fence was installed prior to 1978, you probably have lead paint on it and should replace it or call a professional to refinish it who is experienced wjth lead paint abatement.
