Driftwood Sealer on Cedar

We had an interesting project this May. The homeowner used a stain from one of premium names in color Driftwood. Although he applied it correctly, and had done a lot of wood preparation, the stain start pilling after less then one year. He decided to call professional woody. The Driftwood is not very popular among homeowners, and it was a big pleasure to work with this product. We were able to completely strip all surfaces and apply great product almost the same color.

Sanding Decks

We do light sanding on horizontal surfaces on  every deck we restore, thanks to new type of tools and some work we’d done to adopt this tools for our needs. But sometimes, light sanding is not an option, and in worse case scenario, we cant use a big floor drum sander on particular deck. In this case, our work turns to hell, but the results are great. Look how much sandpaper used to sand by hands medium size deck! This is 40 hours of sanding:
