Hardwood Flooring Textures
Thoughtfully recreating Old World methods, our artisans hand craft each individual piece of wood to bring out its own inherent personality and the impression of age. It is this exceptional attention to detail that makes every Gäte hand distressed floor its own display of natural beauty. Gäte’s standard hand distressing options range from light, medium, and heavy treatments, or we can custom distress to match virtually any photo or sample.
Using proprietary machinery developed in-house, Gäte is able to add circular saw marks to replicate the look of rough sawn boards from an early sawmill. Floors can be finished fully textured or easily sanded back to any desired level.
Band Sawn texture adds straight saw marks across the width of each board to replicate the look of rough-sawn boards from a more modern sawmill. Floors can be finished fully textured or easily sanded back to any desired level.
With Gäte’s innovative milling techniques, the original sawmill marks can be maintained, hit or miss, to various degrees.
Choose from light, medium, or heavy texturing that enhances the specie’s natural wood grain creating a subtle to dramatic weathered appearance.
For an authentic Old World pegged look, non-structural round and square pegs are available in a variety of wood species. Pegs can be sanded flush or left proud.
