What are the different surface textures for hardwood flooring?
- Smooth: Traditional Hardwoods are generally smooth. They don’t have any dimensional surface texture.
- Wire-Brushed:This finish involves scraping the wood planks with a hard-bristled wire brush that pulls out the soft grain featured in the hardwood material. This process shows the natural beauty in your wood flooring.
- Distressed:Distressed hardwoods are manufactured with a combination of wire-brush and Hand Scraping that gives your flooring a rustic appeal while providing dimensional texture.
- Handscraped:Handscraped hardwoods take on an aged, worn look, recreating an old-world look of craftmanship that has much sought-after charm.
