Wire Brushing

Wire brushing creates a weathered appearance to further enhance a floor's natural wood grain. Depending on whether you prefer a subtle or more dramatic look, we can wire brush your hardwood floors with a light, medium, or heavy texture.

Band Sawn

Band sawn texture replicates the look of rough-sawn boards from a more modern sawmill. We achieve this look by adding straight saw marks across the width of each board. Your wood floor can be finished with the full texture or sanded down to a lighter texture level.

Circle Sawn

Gäte Hardwood Floors can replicate the look of rough sawn floorboards from an early sawmill by adding circular saw marks using proprietary machinery that we developed. Your circle sawn floor can feature the full texture, or we can sand it down to your desired texture level.
