  • Screen recoat/resurfacing lanes

    Just out of often do you either, screen and recoat, or resurface your lanes. (for those who still have wood lanes)

    We screen and recoat every year, will resurface next year depending on how they look after this season. Last resurface was 98.

    Just thought I'd see what other centers do....

    Half our house is still wood. We're a 64 lane center split. 1-32 is synthetic and 33-64 is wood. The wood lanes are screened every year and cut every 4. Same as you, last time we cut was 98 and we will have them cut next summer.

    All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

        It depends on the lineage and type of finish on the lanes. Average lineage can get by with a screen and recoat once a year, but a high lineage house should have a head recoat at mid season. If you have water base you probably should do a head recoat no matter how much lineage.

        You should resurface between 3 to 5 years, depending on maintenance and how well the lanes are holding up.
