PRECISE

Controlled Removal

Manual sanding allows for a defined depth of material removal depending on the condition of the wood.  1/16" - 1/4" + can be achieved when needed.

 

Properly preparing wood surfaces increases finish performance and reduces lifecycle maintenance cost. Achieving the correct surface texture allows new finishes to absorb and perform as intended.

 

After our progressive sanding method surfaces comply with finish manufacturers requirements, architectural standards & US Forestry research data.
