California Classics Flooring by Gemwoods uses True Hand-Scraping by Artisans.
So many hardwood flooring brands these days deceptively claim their products are True “hand-scraped” when they’re actually scraped by machines & or lightly-trained workers using machines. A discerning consumer can easily tell the difference.
