Treadline Construction
Tualatin, Oregon

Entries in this category include job site applied applications of dyes, reactive colorants, layered colors, and faux finishing.

This 400 square foot glue-down installation of 2 1/4” x 3/4” red oak, white oak, and maple was installed over concrete. After the floor was sanded, aluminum custom circular shaped inlays were custom routed into the floor and installed.

The floor was sanded again, then each section was masked, and a custom application of colored water conditioners, reactive chemicals, and custom blends of oil-based, water-based stains, and colored penetrating oils were applied. Some sections received a final application of acid-cured finish.
