Contractor Error With Sealer


We purchased Pella sliders and put stain on them. The contractor then accidentally sprayed varnish on prior to the sealer. He has now sprayed the sealer over the dried varnish and wants to sand before the final coat of varnish is applied. Is the wood sealed and how aggressive should we be with sanding?

  1. Varnish is its own sealer. Typically a seal coat of varnish is applied, allowed to dry, lightly sanded, then re-coated with the same varnish.

    The wood is fully sealed. Go ahead and lightly sand, fine (220 or finer grit) sanding sponge, remove the dust and apply your final coat.
