Over time, wood exposed to natural elements takes on a one-of-a-kind authentic patina. Whether located outside to negotiate the various seasonal changes (what we call Weathered) or in an interior space like an old warehouse (what we call Naturally Distressed), wood adapts and holds the markings of time.
Boards may be characterized by heavy surface texture, color variation, checking and other signs of prior use and age created during the material's previous existence as part of a barn, bridge, fence, etc.
Need your natural look a bit more refined? A surface treatment like nylon brushing, skip planing or sandblasting can tame the patina to fit a more subtle weathered or distressed look.
Applying oil, stain or paint can add richness and a pop of color.
