Deck Sanding

A Key Part of Master Decker's Deck Restoration Process

Why Deck Sanding Matters

So, what’s the deal with deck sanding? Well, it’s like giving your deck a makeover. We’ve got a shop full of sanders, machines, and sandpaper to make sure your deck gets what it needs.

Pressure-treated wood, cedar, or some really stubborn old paint, we handle them all. You might be wondering if it’s cool to sand pressure-treated wood. Yep, it’s all good if you know what you’re doing, and we definitely do.

Sometimes paint and solid stains don’t wanna leave your deck. They stick like glue. We use heavy-duty sanding to show them the door. This makes sure your deck is all set for our awesome stains that’ll make it look like a million bucks.

Old decks can get a bit rough around the edges. Deck sanding helps smooth the surface. If you like walking barefoot, or the kiddos are running around, you don’t have to worry about splinters. Plus, it makes the deck look fresh and clean.

Now, you might think about going to the hardware store and renting one of those big sanders. But here’s the thing: deck boards aren’t flat like floors. They’ve got these slight curves. Big floor sanders don’t play nice with those curves. They’ll either miss spots or rough them up too much.

Here’s where we come in. We look at your deck, up close and personal. No two decks are the same. We’ll check out yours and tell you what it needs. It’s like taking your car to a mechanic, but way cooler because it’s your deck we’re talking about.

At Master Decker, we treat your deck like our own. Seriously, we think of deck sanding as our way of giving your deck some love. Your deck will look awesome, last longer, and be a great place for family BBQs, late-night talks, or just hanging out.

So, what are you waiting for? Your deck is calling for a little TLC. Give us a shout, and let’s make it happen!
