'Distressing' & Camouflage
Marreed-Prestman offers four (4) levels of Hand-Crafted 'Distressing' (camouflaging) no matter the Colour or Style of your finished Flooring... Light (city living/kids/dog), Moderate and Heavy 'Distressing' (country living/kids/dog). 'Distressing' is done with a gentle hand ... in consultation with the Client's requirements and desires. DIY: Do-it-Yourself Orders are NOT Distressed. Although, Hand-Crafted 'distressing' for DIY Orders is available as an Option @ $ .75c sf.
“The Eye is Not Drawn to any Single Imperfection.”
It's magic because it's Livable when you live with kids and dogs (or they visit).
Do you have a particular 'Distressing'/'Antiquing' in mind? I can produce whatever STYLE you want. Understanding, of course, that the effect of UV-Light and normal wear-and-tear will deepen wood colour and mature (blend) naturally, over time.
Choose “Natural” or a Translucent Stain Colour or request one of my PROPRIETARY Hand-Crafted RUSTIC CUSTOM FINISHES. Any highlight stain colour you desire can be inset into the 'distressed' areas of your new Red Pine Flooring to achieve the antique “Old World” Charm you desire.
A Marreed-Prestman Flooring, as with any wood Flooring, will still ding, dent and scratch but, my method of hand-distressing and SFX finishing will naturally camouflage abuse ... the eye is not drawn to any particular marking (new or old). My 'family-friendly' 'Diamond-Tough' FloodCoat TopCoat Finishing is also critically important. It's magic because it's Livable when you live with kids and dogs (or they visit).
2001 — 2015
Marreed-Prestman offers new Wide Plank Red Pine Flooring in three levels of 'distressing' .. light (“city” living/kids/dog), moderate and heavy 'distressing' (“country” living/kids/dog).
The home featured herein illustrates 'Rocky Road' ... light oak stained (inset into the 'distressed' areas) with heavy (rugged) 'distressing'. Large knotts are no longer available. (See: above). Rocky Road — the most rugged style — as illustrated in this Feature Home, is regretfully, not a favoured choice because of its intentionally rough-looking appearance ... in reality — when furniture is in place and the Flooring 'ages' — the Rocky Road style is stunningly beautiful and ever-so-easy to live with ... it is the best “camouflage” when you live with BIG dogs.
