columbia hardwood flooringColumbia homeowners love the look and feel of hardwood floors. Can you blame them? Hardwood is strong, versatile, and adds timeless warmth to any home. At Floor Coverings International Howard County, many of our customers prefer hand-scraped hardwood. This bold and rustic hardwood option makes a powerful statement. Here is some more information about this popular style of hardwood and why it’s a great choice for families.

Natural Character

Each piece of hand-scraped hardwood is grated by hand to bring out the natural character of the wood. While sanding and other distressing methods achieve this to some extent, the scraping process results in deep colors and authentic character.

Amazing Benefits

Anyone with hand-scraped hardwood floors will tell you about the rich hues and rustic charm. Here are some additional benefits that make this hardwood a great option for Columbia families:

  • Long-lasting: a great advantage of hand-scraped hardwood is its superior ability at hiding dings and scratches, so your new floors will last for generations with minimal maintenance required. This makes hand-scraped hardwood a great choice for large families and pet owners.
  • Versatile: hand-scraped hardwood comes in a variety of wood species, including red oak, white oak, maple, and pine. It can be stained any hue to complement your home’s natural light. Plus, it comes in plank and variable-width options.
