Raleigh Creek ARC - Bulletin No. 1

Dear Residents:

There have been a few resident requests to stain existing cedar fences over the last year or two. Although. both the current Covenants and the current Builder Guidelines provide guidance on fence construction and location. There is no guidance regarding wood fence colorizing treatments or Coatings.

Because all fences interconnect from one private property to the next, there is a potential to have contrasting chaotic color schemes visible from the street view. The Raleigh Creek ARC has, therefore, issued this Bulletin No. 1 which supports the Builder Guidelines and establishes the following options for homeowner treatments to these portions of the fences that are exposed to the street or other public areas:

Option 1. No treatment. Allow the cedar fence to weather to its natural silvery gray patina finish.

Option 2. Coat the fence with Olympic Clear Wood Sealer or with Behr Clear Wood Sealer.

Option 3. Coat the fence with Olympic Semi-Transparent Stain - Color "Cedar Naturaltone" or coat the fence with Behr Semi-Transparent Stain - Color "Cedar Naturaltone" ST-533.
