Customer Reviews

  • "Horner Painting did an exceptional job painting the exterior of my home last week. Luis and his crew started a day early and worked until dark. Their attention to detail was amazing. They kept the work area clean and left nothing behind. Horner may not be the cheapest in town but they are the best... You truly get what you pay for. Great communication from scheduling  and estimating. I would highly recommend!!"
     --Jesse S.
  • "The crew did a fantastic job. Luis was the crew supervisor and he kept us in the loop the entire time. They went above and beyond what I expected. Second time we’ve used Horner Painting and will definitely use them again and will recommend them to my friends and neighbors."  -- Richard T.
  • "We received excellent service from start to finish from Horner Painting. Adam, Karlee and Rhonda helped get us through the front end of the entire process. All questions were answered and in an incredible fashion. On the day of the paint, Luis and his crew were incredible, quick and did an amazing job. Great customer service all around and I highly recommend Horner!!" -- Ryan L.


Do you have a wood fence, or are you planning to have one installed? Wood fences are a popular choice for homeowners who wish to add security and privacy to their yard in a way that compliments the surrounding natural environment. However, compared to metal or vinyl, wood requires more upkeep. That's because it's an organic material that's susceptible to all kinds of weather - rain, snow, sun, and even a lack of moisture. 

Is your wood fence looking old and worn? Make it look like new again and give it the protection it needs to last for many years to come. At Horner, we specialize in all types of interior and exterior painting and staining services for your home, deck, fence, railings, pergola, and more. Give us a call today and we'll be happy to discuss your project and get started on your free quote.

Patio Covers

Wood patio covers, also known as pergolas, are a popular option for providing some refuge from the mid-day Colorado sun. Unfortunately, those intense UV rays can also take a toll on the wood and make it deteriorate quickly if it's not properly maintained. The application of paint or stain is necessary to seal the wood and provide UV protection. 

If your patio cover is looking a little worse-for-wear, or, if you're considering installing new pergola, give Horner a call. We can help you decide on the right color, explain our 5-year guarantee, and even provide you with a free price quote. 


How long has it been since your deck was installed? Even if you've repainted or stained the main surface of your deck, at some point you'll also need to do the railing. Don't let a worn and faded railing affect the beauty and integrity of your deck - keep it protected and looking great with staining and painting services from Horner Painting of Fort Collins. 

We're a locally-owned and operated painting company that is dedicated to providing a higher level of service to our friends and neighbors in and around the Fort Collins area. If your deck, railing, pergola, gazebo, or house could use a fresh coat of paint or stain, we hope you'll give us a call and experience the Horner difference!

Protecting Your Wood Deck

Decks are a popular addition for homeowners looking to add value and living space to their homes. However, if it is made of wood, a deck will require ongoing maintenance. Bare wood or wood that hasn’t been treated in quite some time is subject to mold, warping, and cracking. To prevent this from happening, people often paint, stain, and/or seal their deck.

Is it Better to Paint or Stain a Deck?

Painting or staining will help protect your wood deck, but there are definite pros and cons of each.     



  • More color options to choose from
  • Hides more flaws in the wood


  • Can trap moisture already in the wood
    causing mold and rot
  • Covers up the natural wood grain



  • Highlights woods natural appearance
  • Provides good protection from moisture


  • Limited colors to choose from
  • Doesn't adhere to some types of wood
  • Not as durable as paint unless a
    sealant is also applied

Deck Sealing

If you don’t want to cover up the natural beauty of your wood deck but want to make sure it’s protected from the elements, applying a clear sealant is the way to go. Sealants can also be applied as an added layer of protection after staining. There are several variables that go into deciding whether or not you need to add a sealant to your deck, and how often it will need to be reapplied. For more information, or help with deciding whether or not your deck would benefit from a sealant, contact our team.    

Quick Deck & Fence Tips

Increase the longevity of your stain or paint job by following these simple tips!

Don’t Stain a Brand New Deck 

Wood has moisture in it, so you should always be sure to let a new deck “dry out” for at least 30 days before painting or staining.

Clean It Regularly 

When dirt and debris build up on your deck, it can promote decay or act as an abrasive on a painted or stained deck.

Air It Out 

Moisture can ruin paint and stain. Keep your deck dry by removing leaves and moving furniture to ensure wet areas are able to dry.

Inspect It 

At least twice a year, take a good look at your deck and inspect it for damage. Even minor problems can compromise the integrity of your paint or stain and cause it to deteriorate quicker.
