How to Sand Wood Deck Video

Use of an Orbital Floor Sander for Sanding a Wood Deck

By Mark J. Donovan




In this video, Mark Donovan of HomeAdditionPlus.com demonstrates how to use an orbital floor sander to sand a wood deck.

Instead of replacing your wood decking, you may want to consider using an orbital floor sander to restore it to its original beauty.

Sanding a wood deck is a time consuming effort, however it can save you a bundle compared to replacing the deck boards.

Before using an orbital floor sander on your deck make sure you have first sunk all the deck nails or screws. If you do not sink the nails/screws you will waste money on sandpaper and may damage the floor sander.

 Sand your deck and restore it to looking like new!
