  • Any anticipated challenges
  • The expected results
  • Product formulations that will be used during the process
  • The actual sanding process and what is involved

There may be areas that require additional work to ensure that the end result is seamlessly smooth. Rest assured that our experience allows us the confidence to achieve the best-possible result.
