Virginia Mill Works has a great selection of hand scraped flooring in a variety of woods and distress levels. Hand scraped style flooring is a great architectural detail, and a great way to get an aged look with new age technology to ensure the floors will last for a long time.
In a Colonial home or a Traditional kitchen a hand scraped floor is a great detail. In Colonial Times floors were hand planed to smooth out the surface, but the planers left gouges and slightly dug out areas.
These imperfections were a result of the technology of the day, and is sought after these days as an architectural detail.
If you are interested in having a traditional floor without having to resort to colonial technology visit Lumber Liquidators' Virginia Mill Works selection to choose the best hand scraped flooring around.
Lumber Liquidators also offers samples of Virginia Millworks flooring for a nominal fee so you can see and feel the flooring for yourself to see if this type of textured flooring is right for you. I suggest if you have not seen or experienced this fabulous flooring option that you do purchase a sample before committing yourself to hundreds of square feet of flooring.
Virginia Millworks is an engineered floor. What is an engineered floor? An engineered floor is made from various hardwoods sandwiched together. The woods are glued and pressed together under high pressure to increase the density and therefore the strength of the floor. The woods are also oriented perpendicular to the previous layer to increase the stability of the flooring as well.
This Virginia Mill Works flooring is nailed, or stapled, down the same as hardwood flooring is. It will be necessary to buy, or rent, a flooring nailer if you choose to install the flooring yourself. It's not that difficult to install an engineered floor such as this, as long as you follow the directions and take your time.
The biggest difference between engineered floors and laminate floors is the fact that laminates contain no actual wood. While engineered floors are constructed of various wood species. The top layer of wood being the species of choice, the one that shows. Some engineered floors can also be refinished once so that may be a desire for some people.
Virginia Millworks has all of the advantages of engineered flooring with the added benefit of giving an old world feel. If you are in the market for a hand scraped floor at a reasonable price then this floor is for you.
