Homeowners in the Matanzas Inlet, Florida neighborhood contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to stain and refinish their Red Oak floors. They also wanted us to stain and refinish their stairway treads to match the new look of their floors.
Here are some photos of the way their Red Oak floors looked before we started.
Our crew started this project by sanding 1,500 square feet of Red Oak flooring to remove the old finish. We used our big Lagler-Hummel belt sander. for the main areas. Then our crew used edge sanders and hand scraped the edges of the wood flooring.
To get better visual results with the wood stain, we “popped” the grain of the wood flooring with a little water. Popping raises the grain of the wood to allow the stain to penetrate deeper in the wood than the stain would, if applied straight out of the can.
In order to get the look our clients wanted, our crew mixed three parts Provincial to one part Neutral/Natural Bona wood stains.
To finish this Red Oak flooring, we applied the applied two coats of Pallmann finish – Pall-X Clear Sealer and then Pall-X Power Finish. Then we buffed down these first two coats of polyurethane finish, and finished this job with a final coat of Pallmann Gold. The Pallmann Gold top coat is a non-ambering, clear, 2 part waterborne polyurethane finish.
We followed the same sequence – sanding, staining, and refinishing – on the stair treads. We achieved a nice matching look with the wood.
Our clients were very pleased with the outcome of this wood flooring and staircase stain and refinish project. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
