An Antique oak floor will guarantee to add character and beauty to your home. We use manual methods of hand distressing as below not machines! Each board is worked on by a craftsman who has years of experience in creating a masterpiece. We use century’s old techniques to truly capture the natural beauty of hardwood flooring.
Each plank is carefully hand-crafted to yield a magnificent and distinctive character only paralleled by the timeless European floors of the Renaissance Era. Our custom hand-crafted textures result in a dramatic masterpiece, which is as awe-inspiring to the eye as it is to feel underfoot.
A true hand scraped floor like our Antique Oak’s will give a unique, warm, rich look to your home and will be a conversation piece with your friends and guests. Hand Scraped Texture and Process: Throughout the scraping process, our skilled craftsmen sculpt along the natural flow of each wood grain and character mark to accent the true grace of nature’s beauty.
Hand-scraped and Distressed hardwood floors are becoming a popular choice in today’s homes and commercial buildings. These floors are a newer trend but are rooted in history. Before today’s modern sanding methods, floors were hand scraped on site to make the floors flat. Today’s hand scraping is done to add texture, richness and uniqueness.
Distressed hardwood flooring is done by machine or by hand. The problem with machine distressing is repetition of the pattern. As you look across the floor you see the same pattern repeating across the floor. This lacks a natural feel to the floor. Most of our competitors use these methods to save costs but we believe that each of these floors should be unique in look, feel and texture.
True hand scraped is exactly that – done by hand. When properly done this method creates a truly unique floor. These floors can differ greatly in the amount of the texture added to the floor and the skill of the person scraping the floor. Some manufacturers are just denting, scooping, or roughing the floor. Others are sanding the floor unevenly to create a worn look. Still others are scraping the entire surface of the flooring creating the most unique handmade look; this is how we make our antique oak floors.
True craftsmen can create a reclaimed look complete with wormholes, splits and other naturally occurring character markings.
All our Antique oak floors are prefinished and create convenience and speed of installation. One of the great benefits of a prefinished floor is the ability of each plank to move independently with the changes of humidity in the home.
