Trex - Sand it?
 
I have 3 severely scratched boards - don't ask how. Can it be sanded?
it is the longest board trex sells and used the hidden clips.
so we're not talking cheap or easy to replace, at least for me to do!
thanks

Can it be sanded yes, but if it one of the ones with a wood grain finish it's going to gone when done sanding.
Post a picture of the scratch.

That's some tiny scratches. I'd try a wire brush first moving with the grain.

Are the toes there for size reference?

Did your toe nail do the scratches?:eek:

Its mandatory. Any objects placed on floors/ground, or referencing flooring, patio, decking - picture posts ---- MUST posess at least (1) proverbial "ugly toes" reference picture.

But we don't know what size the toes are.
mnutah, post a picture of the toes next to something of a known size. Ohhh i dunno,.. something like a deck board maybe, then we can compare the board to the toes, and the toes to the scratches, and then scratches in the board to the board they are in. While you're down there with that wire brush, whyn't you casually reach over with it and... No, i shouldn't talk, one of my ears is lower than the other two. Not just a bit lower, noticably lower, I know cause I keep catchin people tryin not to stare at it.

Speakin of that, how'd you and your decks make out through the fire? I have brother-in-law out towards Manitou Springs, got evacuated, came back everything fine.

The talon attached to your toe scratched the boards. Didnt it?

retro 09-12-2012 10:33 PM

wait I got another one.


I cant see any scratches on the deck. Could you possibly move your toe nail?

We had none lost, we had a previous client that had the fire right in their backyard just a couple of feet from their deck and there is no damage to the deck anywhere, I was amazed.

I have gotten more increased interest in the steel frame that we do as a result though. We will be starting a 100% fireproof project next week. These are all benefits that I have presented to people for a couple of years now, some listened, and some did not.
