Wash the terrace
Before you start sanding your terrace, it’s important to wash away oil and dirt. For tips on how to do this, see our article Clean the terrace.
Make sure the wood is thoroughly clean and dry before you start sanding.
Sand the terrace
It is important to sand the terrace before treatment to remove sharp edges, knots, fibers and other irregularities. When sanding your patio, a hinged sanding tool and an extension pole are the best tools to use if you want the work to be easy and ergonomic for your body.
Attach sanding paper to the Velcro surface on the sanding tool and start sanding. It is usually appropriate to use 120 grit. If the surfaces are smaller or more difficult to reach, we recommend using a sanding block to get a good grip.
To achieve a truly barefoot-friendly surface, it’s important to do the prep work thoroughly. Go over with the sanding tool an extra time to make sure that all the splints are really gone.
Brush off the sanding dust
The last thing you need to do is sweep away any sanding dust with a brush. Now you’re ready to treat your terrace with oil, glaze or whatever treatment you want to use for your patio. Hope you get a really nice end result and many wonderful moments ahead on your terrace.
