Superior Flooring MAPLE – BACKROADS HAND SCRAPED
One of the most common and widely used North American woods, the Hard Maple is an eastern North American maple tree. While grown in abundance, it is more expensive to get the pure white sapwood. In flooring, you will get a combination of heart and sapwood in any hard maple. Maple hardwood is a very clean looking wood with not much grain at all, and very little colour variation which gives a very consistent look. If you don’t like much grain and want a smooth, even tone to your floor, maple is for you.
Superior’s Hand Scraped finish pays homage to the handcrafted quality of authentic wood surfaces. Our technicians craft each plank by hand with specialty blades and gauges. Working in small sections to ensure consistency, downward pressure is applied and the tool is pulled and scraped along the surface to create the desired effect. The result is a completely unique, original and handcrafted surface. The depth, character, rustic features, and hand-made appeal are difficult to mirror in a pre-finished product. With a matte sheen level, Superior’s Hand Scraped finishes offer all the same low-maintenance benefits that are available in Superior’s Wire Brushed series.
