to remove finishes and old wood layers
Results of a heavy sanding process
There are several types of sanding to utilize depending on the situation. For any sanding situation, we complete multiple rounds in order of ascending grit. This ensures a smooth finish, free of sanding rings or other scratches/marks.
For proejcts requiring heavy sanding, a large drum sander is used. This is followed up with smaller, handheld sanders ranging from 3" belt sanders to mouse detail sanders. The finish to be applied will determine which grit is used on the last round, as the porosity of the wood can affect the penetration or adhesion of a finish.
The combination of sanders allows us to select the proper level of size and power needed for any sanding task or stage. In situations where pressure washing / stripping chemicals will not suffice - such as paint removal - sanding is the best alternative. Carefully monitoring the amount of wood layers removed is paramount in keeping the wood safe and healthy, while also beautifying the surface as much as possible.
We only offer sanding for horizontal surfaces, such as floors, steps, handrails and the like.
