When Is Sandblasting the Best Resurfacing Option?
Both pressure washing and sandblasting can be used to remove unwanted substances from surfaces. Both are used for preparing surfaces for a new finish, but there are some surface preparations that are best suited to sandblasting over pressure washing. Sandblasting is extremely useful for removing paint and other finishes, while preparing the surface for a new finish. Here are some projects where sandblasting is the best option for resurfacing, stripping or cleaning the surface.
Metal and Steel Painting Preparation
Whether it’s a car, sign or building, if you have metal or steel that needs to be prepared for painting, sandblasting is the best option. This media can strip away any old paint and create the desired profile on the surface that will adhere the new paint and create long-lasting results.
Pool Resurfacing and Repainting
Sandblasting is ideal for removing the old finish from your pool before it is repainted. Both fiberglass and concrete pools can be effectively stripped of old paint with sandblasting, but the type of medium used may be different depending on the pool type.
If you have old paint you want to strip from concrete before repainting, sandblasting is a perfect solution. The grit of the sand media will strip and clean the concrete to get it ready for painting. This can get your driveway, parking lot or concrete building ready for its new look.
Sandblasting can be effective for stripping and preparing wood for resurfacing. Whether it is furniture, fencing or decking, when performed by a sandblasting professional, your wood can be stripped of old paint or other finishes to prepare for refinishing. Since wood is more delicate, this should not be attempted by a novice, as wood is very unforgiving if the wrong technique is used.
