Are you familiar with distressed wood floors? What about hand scraped wood floors? They may have different names but the process thereof is the same.

Hand scraped woods are floorings that has dents, its surface are not smooth and has a worn out look. While distressed wood floors are being damaged to achieve a vintage or antique look, so does the hand scraped lumber floors. This kind of lumber floors is becoming more popular for many years now.

Most homeowners who are looking for this kind of lumber floors are those people who have old houses, rustic homes and some castles with really old, worn out floors. They look for this wood floor to replace some damage pieces and they want the same pieces that will match their floor and others want to add flooring to their homes.

Metals with different unique imprints were developed years ago and were used to protrude some sections of already installed wood floors. These metal plates were positioned into the wood and were hit by a hammer having ten pound weight. It then formed dents in the wood surface. They flamed the wood surface to darken some parts to achieve a more aged look to it. Using scrapers with long handles, they marked depressions on the surface to simulate wear as if worn out by time.

They are then stained and coated with a finish or shellac. This method was done manually several years ago.

Today, denting and damaging hard timber boards are done during the manufacturing process. This method can also be done for engineered hardwood floor boards. In the factory, obviously, they are not done by hands but by the use of automated machines.

These machines created rows and rows of depressions on the floor board’s surface. The machine wheels gouge and sand the surface. Gouges vary in sizes and the depths which depend on their specifications. After this process, lumber floor boards are then stained and finished to enhance the hand scraped.

Although some manufacturers use machines today, there are still some who uses the basic method of hand scraping solid hardwood for floors. They hire skilled craftsmen who know solid hardwood hand scraping to actually do the job in the manufacturing area. With the use of tools like chisels, long handled scrapers, hand planes and metal gauges, they can create unique appearances and metal imprints on the wood surface.

Every manufacturer has their own hand scraped process to make their product look antique or vintage. Because of this, consumers should not expect what they saw they saw with the sample would be the same to what they would deliver at your doorstep. As solid floor board standard thickness, 3/4 inch thick is available while engineered hardwood has different thickness variations. All types of installation can be used for this hand scraped wood floor boards.

If you choose hand scraped engineered wood floor boards, select those woods that have a thicker wear layer that can be sanded many times and might even last for 6-8 decades. Light sanding should be done because the hand scraped-made dents might even out and flattened when you use sanding machines. Visit Wood Flooring Burbank for further details.
