Hand-scraped Hardwood Enhances Texture and Beauty

One of the main reasons why hand-scraped hardwood flooring is highly sought-after is its unique aesthetic appearance. Hand-scraping adds texture and depth to hardwood flooring and enhances its beauty by emphasizing the lines of the wood.

The process of hand-scraping gives the flooring a truly individualized, vintage appearance that looks lived-in as well as intentionally designed. For authentic, one-of-a kind flooring, hand-scraped hardwood can’t be beat.

It Hides Scratches, Dents, and Small Marks

From a practical standpoint, hand-scraped hardwood also offers several advantages. Hardwood flooring is durable, but it isn’t impervious to scrapes and scratches. Pets, kids, or any of life’s other catastrophic joys can scratch hardwood flooring over time.

It’s Extremely Durable and Long-Lasting

The durability and longevity of this classic flooring type is yet another reason why you need hand-scraped hardwood flooring. In addition to reducing the appearance of minor imperfections, hand-scraped hardwood also lasts longer than its smooth-finished counterparts.
