Wanting a fresh look for their Palencia condo, homeowners contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to replace the existing tile and carpet with wood flooring.
The first step on this home improvement project was demolition; removal and disposal of the original tile and contractor grade carpeting. The fact that this condo is on the third floor of the building gave our crew plenty of exercise with this project.
With old tile and carpeting removed, then we commenced leveling the concrete subfloor of the condo. There was a large amount of leveling to be done before we could install the wood flooring. Wood flooring requires a flat surface to minimize damage to the wood and maximize the flooring life. Our Dan’s Floor Store crew levels all concrete prior to wood floor installations.
Our clients selected engineered Chesapeake Countryside Birch wood flooring in Grey Fog for their condo floors.
We chose Bostik Vapor-Lock hardwood floor adhesive for this project. Bostick Vapor-Lock is good for moisture control. But in this application, we chose Vapor-Lock for its sound deadening barrier since this unit is a third floor concrete stack condo.
To add an interesting and creative twist in the flooring installation, Dan’s Floor Store owner Dan DiCarlo suggested running the new birch wood flooring front to back in the foyer, and then changing direction at the header boards. The owners liked the concept. Each flooring plank was then grooved at a 45 degree angle, coming off the header board to achieve the visual effect.
Our clients love their new birch wood floor, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
