Deck sanding is typically a three stage process that begins with thoroughly cleaning and then power washing the subject deck, usually one that’s attached to a house. Once a deck has been properly prepared all wooden surfaces are then sanded to a fine, smooth consistency. After sanding, a deck is then stained, lacquered or otherwise coated. Decked homes in Pennant Hills, NSW, approximately 25 kilometres from Sydney, can benefit from periodic deck sanding, in part due to the year-round climate mix of sun, high temperatures and occasional rain.
Consider how involved and time-consuming a deck sanding task can be. Home owners having exterior decks should ask themselves whether they have the time, skill or patience to carry out preparation, sanding and then stain application. Equipment needed for deck preparation, sanding and protective coating applications also includes mechanical power washers, motorised belt sanders of several different specifications and an array of stains, brushes and perhaps even automated paint sprayers. Fortunately, several nearby companies specialise in deck sanding in Pennant Hills – including A&J Flooring.
Properly maintaining wooden flooring of any type is both an art and a science. If you’re of a mind to engage in a “do it yourself” home project, a deck sanding exercise is certainly within the realm of possibility. Always ensure you schedule enough hours to carry out your deck sanding DIY project, though. Many homeowners that attempt deck sanding in Pennant Hills, commuters to employment situations in Sydney, put aside several weekends to do so. Of course, the trade-off to performing your own deck sanding is that the time, money and effort spent in labour on your wooden deck may be better spent elsewhere, especially when deck maintenance specialists already exist.
