Beautiful Hand Scraped Hardwoods by Real Craftsman's Hands...
For centuries, wood floors were planed with rough tools, leaving a textured look and feel to the surface.
Timeless beauty. Heritage. Classic style. Elegance.
These are some phrases that can describe a hand-scraped hardwood floor.
Hand scraped (and distressed) wood floors have come back into fashion, and there is good reason for this. First, hand scraped hardwood gives a room that homey, lived-in feel. Secondly, as you know, an active family – kids and friends and pets – can be hard on floors, sometimes leaving dents and scratches; a hand-scraped wood floor takes these dings in stride and still looks great. Also, some some hand-scraped floors are ecologically sound by virtue of being hardwood recycled and upgraded from older buildings.
Texas Hardwood Flooring can help you achieve that rustic, old-wood floor look. We can hand scrape hickory, oak, bamboo and other wood types. When your solid hardwood floor is being installed or refinished, our craftsmen can hand-scrape your floor right on site prior to staining and sealing. Of course, it is important to have a professional floor contractor who knows what they are doing.
Pre-Finished Hand Scraped Floors
Also, many flooring manufacturers now offer pre-finished hardwood flooring products that are hand-scraped at the factory and can be installed with the same ease and at the same cost as other pre-finished floors.
Finally, a number of laminate flooring product lines now come with a hand-scraped texture look and feel.
Whichever route you choose, hand-scraped wood floors add character, beauty and value to your home environment.
