Work and execution plan for the sanding of a wooden house

While it is usually sufficient for smaller garden sheds, sheds or carport to grind with conventional home improvement methods, different plans are required for wooden houses. The construction and façade properties play just as large a role as the accessibility and the type of wood.

Need to consider supporting measures and alternatives

On a wooden house there are many different components with specific shapes and possibly different types of wood and processing. Wooden shingles on roofs, façade panels or wall trunks must be considered as well as dimensionally stable components such as doors, windows and frames. A detailed grinding plan is recommended, which lists the following factors and assigns them to the appropriate processing type.

Before sanding the wooden house, the general need should be checked. Apart from optical aspects, sanding for reasons of wood protection and preservation is not always necessary. Hard woody plants such as pine and larch trees form their own protective patina over time, which ensures the natural self-protection of the wood surfaces. After abrading, this gray-silvery layer would have to be replaced with a protective impregnation including UV protection with auxiliaries.

With existing primers, the grinding work can be substantially simplified if the old paint is largely removed by heating with a heat gun and the removal by a spatula. Depending on the color and wood type, brushing or sandblasting can also prepare or even replace sanding.

Planning and execution

The component groups of the house should be grouped into similar groups. The following distribution is recommended:

  • facade
  • Outer support beams
  • roof
  • roofing
  • Window / door frames
  • sides
  • canopies

In most cases, the individual groups must be ground down according to their shape and accessibility using different methods. Surfaces, corners, fillets, profile indentations and size are the work-determining factors.

The component groups should be assigned the appropriate devices, often two types. As grinding devices are eligible:

  • belt sander
  • Deltaschleifer
  • Sanding block for manual sanding
  • Random Orbit Sander
  • Disc or rotary sander (drilling machine)

The procurement of sufficient abrasives in granular form is indispensable. The processing steps should be sorted into a schedule and schedule. Here the accessibility of the house parts plays an important role. Ladders or scaffolding should be able to be used as efficiently as possible.

Tips & Tricks

Always sand with at least two grain sizes and at least two sanding cycles each.
