The 5 Types of Wood Grain Finishes TimberTech Offers
One of the unique features of Timber Tech is the range of wood grain finishes. Let’s take a closer look at each:
- Straight Grain
For those who love the timeless appeal of traditional wood, the Straight Grain finish is the perfect choice. It offers a linear grain without knots, capturing the classic wood look.

If you are after an artisan-inspired aesthetic, then the Hand-Scraped Finish might be for you. It offers a highly textured finish, making each deck unique.
- Crosscut Grain
The Crosscut Grain resembles wood cut perpendicular to the grain, adding depth and complexity to your deck.
- Wire-Brushed Finish
This subtle, textured finish is often used for premium hardwoods and adds a touch of luxury to your deck.

The Cathedral Grain features varying peaks and swirls across the board surface, offering a more dynamic and visually arresting texture.
