The Superb Benefits of Engineered Hand Scraped Flooring

Do you know what are the benefits of adding engineered hand-scraped flooring to your home? If you do not know the benefits, we are here to inform you! Read below to learn!


Engineered flooring has increased in popularity for the past few years. It used to be perceived as a sub-solid flooring product. Now it closely resembles genuine hardwood flooring. Both domestic and exotic hardwood flooring are available as engineered hardwood, pre-finished or unfinished.


What is Hand Scraped Flooring?

Hand Scraped flooring is a technique used to give hardwood a rustic appearance and it is an option for engineered flooring. Engineered flooring is appealing because the product is 100 percent hardwood but it does not expand and contract like a solid flooring. Since engineered flooring does not expand and contract, it can be placed above, on or below grade in a building.  It is able to do this because each board has three to nine plys of the same or different species. The Wear layer (the top layer) is of high quality hardwood. The plys are bonded together and the grain of every ply faces a different direction.
