DISTRESSING

Our wire brushing technique accentuates the already existing texture of your timber flooring. It is a subtle method to bring an aged and vintage look to your property

 

What is Distressing?

A sophisticated and voguish finish, the wire brushed treatment naturally engraves texture that follows the grain within hardwood floors.
Normally sought for its calm, tranquil appearance which gives timber a rich vintage look. It is also a very subtle textural experience.

 

Method

Process

The process involves wire brushing the top surface of the timber after sanding. The stiff wire brushes would strip away and remove the soft wood fibers while the harder fibers would remain.

Effect

The overall effect is to highlight the natural richness and open the grain showing off intricate groves. The final product resembles both vintage aged texture, while also without discolouration or unexpected damages which comes hand in hand with vintage floor boards.
