When we meet with a potential client we want to make sure that all of their questions are answered until they are fully knowledgeable when it comes to hardwood floors installations.
Our high level of commitment to our clients in the Plano, Texas region is one of the reasons we have acquired the best reputation in the hardwood flooring industry, anywhere in Texas.
We understand how important it is that our clients make the right decisions for their homes and we take great care in making sure that they know the difference between hand scraped hardwood floors with the grain vs. Hand scraped hardwood floors across grain; or how hand scraped differs from “distressed”.
These details are the things we will cover in this article. It is our hope to help you make a wise and informed choice when the time comes for the repair and refinishing of hardwood floors in your home.
The term Hand Scraped Hardwood Floors comes from what was once a common method of using a drawknife to shave a plank until it was smooth. The craftsman would do this until the board was smooth and flat, but this would also leave minor tool marks behind adding depth and character to the flooring material.
Nowadays, hand scraping is still done manually, but is often accomplished via mechanical means, as well.
Now some people confuse the terms hand scraped with distressed. Although a hand scraped board can appear distressed, the difference lies in the fact that distressed markings are more often than not made by a machine and are more uniform from board to board.
