The tradition of hand-crafting can now be married with the advantages of today’s engineering in a hand-scraped engineered wood floor.
You might ask…what is the difference between distressed look and hand-scraped? The processes are similar but it is the difference between hand versus machine. A true hand-scraped look will have variations and not a lot of uniform duplication on the planks. A distressed or machine achieved look will have more uniform markings. But the looks achieved are the same and it will look beautiful on the floors in your home.
What’s nice about hand-scraped is that if it gets scraped or scratched, it will blend in and won’t be obvious. Using engineered wood floors is great because they can be installed easier than solid wood and can be used below grade if a “floating floor” method of installation is employed.
Here’s a problem you may encounter…and It’s a good problem…there are so many choices of styles, colors, textures you will be sure to find one that suits you just perfectly.
Here’s a tip, if you do get a scratch on the hardwood surface, try rubbing a pecan nut on it and watch it disappear! Go and visit your local flooring retailer and see what selection and variety of hand-scraped engineered wood floors are available. Your flooring consultant will be able to answer any questions you have…you will be glad you did.
