Tile Bathroom Remodel in Queen’s Harbor

Finished remodeled bathroomA plumbing leak inside the shower walls brought about this bathroom remodeling project in a home in Queen’s Harbor Yacht and Country Club. The homeowners called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate, to work with their insurance company. We got the contract to do the tile, and stone and glass work to remodel the water damaged bathroom.

First our crew “demo’d” (ripped out) the water damaged bathroom wall board. After the plumbing was fixed, we hung new cement backer boards. Cement backer boards are resistant to mold growth and damage from moisture, making them great tile underlayment for wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens. And then our crew applied waterproofing to the walls (the pink and yellow areas on the bare HardieBacker in some of the photos).

Our clients selected and provided the porcelain tile, and stone and glass for the mosaic for this project. (Dan’s Floor Store sells and can supply the tile, stone and glass for projects, too.) We started setting the 24″ by 24″ porcelain tile on the shower walls with the help of temporary horizontal boards. (These temporary boards hold the tiles in position until the adhesive set up.) Our crew added two “racing stripes” in glass and stone mosaic, with pencil stone borders. We also added glass and stone details in two wall inserts (handy for soap, shampoo bottles, etc.).

Then we mudset the 24″ by 24″ porcelain floor tiles, adding an elaborate basket weave-type inlay of stone. Our crew centered the stone inlay to the tub.

Our clients were very impressed with how nice their remodeled bathroom looks now, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Brazilian Chestnut and Tile Flooring Installations – Marsh Creek Country Club

New homeowners in the Marsh Creek Country Club community of Saint Augustine Beach, Florida called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303. They wanted our professional flooring and stair help in making their new home to fit their vision.

Our clients selected engineered 3 1/4″ wide Brazilian Chestnut wood flooring by Triangulo, and some 12″ by 24″ rectangular tiles by Emser Tile and Stone for their home.

Our crew started work on this project by removing the existing carpeting and tile flooring in the home.

Prior to installing new flooring, we did a massive amount of leveling of the concrete slab sub-floor and the plywood second story sub-floor. In two of the upstairs rooms, there was an odor of urine from the previous owner’s pet, so we had to change out the plywood prior to leveling it.

With the sub-floors leveled, our crew installed the Brazilian Chestnut wood flooring.

We installed new Red Oak treads on the stairs, stain matching them to the Brazilian Chestnut flooring.

Our crew also installed the rectangular tile flooring in the kitchen, the laundry, and a small bathroom.

The new homeowner clients love their new wood floors and staircase, and tile floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand and Finish Weave-in Repaired Red Oak Select Grade Flooring – St. Augustine

Weave-in repair of red oak flooringEarlier this year, Dan’s Floor Store started a home improvement project for clients in the Moultrie Foreside community, near Moultrie Creek in south St. Augustine. Our crew prepared the subfloor, and then wove-in solid Red Oak select grade wood flooring to extend the Red Oak through the home, and to repair some damaged areas of the wood flooring.

After allowing one month of acclamation time for the new solid Red Oak select grade flooring, we came back to sand and finish the Red Oak floors.

First, the acclimated wood flooring had to be sanded.

After sanding, our crew “popped” the wood flooring grain with water to give a deeper, darker color when we applied the stain. The stain selected was Early American by MinWax. Then we finished the floors with one coat of Bona drifast Sealer.

And then we waited around a month or so to allow the kitchen cabinets to come in. Next our Dan’s Floor Store crew buffed down the sealer coat on the Red Oak select grade flooring and applied two coats of Bona oil-modified satin.

Our clients were thrilled with the outcome of their floor, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Hickory Wood Look Floor Tile – Ponte Vedra Sawgrass

Dan’s Floor Store was selected to be part of a home improvement project in the Ponte Vedra Sawgrass community. The homeowners wanted to replace their old carpeting and some tiled flooring with new, wood look tile flooring.

We began work on this project with removal of the old carpeting, and existing tiled flooring.

Next we leveled the concrete subfloor. Floor leveling is very important in preparation for installation of new hard surface flooring. Unlevel floors can cause wood or tile flooring to crack, reducing the life of the new flooring and requiring replacement of the wood or tile flooring.

Dan’s Floor Store recommends the quality wood look porcelain tiles made by Daltile. These wood look tiles will resist moisture, are easy to maintain, and the tiles even help with heating and cooling (because porcelain remains cool to the touch, as a result of its composition). Digital imaging and high-tech manufacturing produce wood-grain porcelain tiles with very realistic textures and visual details.  It’s often difficult to distinguish wood look tiles from real wood flooring without taking a much closer look.

We installed the 6″ x 36″ wood-look floor tile planks in a three step pattern, running side to side in the home.

Our clients are very happy with their tile installation home improvements by Dan’s Floor Store. And we always like to have happy clients!

Tile Backsplash Installation – Hickory Manor

Installed kitchen backsplash tileDan’s Floor Store installed tile backsplash in the kitchen of a home in Hickory Manor, off of Girvin Road in Jacksonville, Florida.

The homeowners found and purchased an ornate tile shape for their kitchen backsplash. They contacted Dan’s Floor Store and asked us to professionally install the tile backsplash for them.

Our crew installed their tile with mastic, grouted with white grout. We chose a white plastic Schluter to match the tile and grout and trim the backsplash out. This combination gave the backsplash a nice, clean look.

Our client was very pleased with the appearance of their kitchen with the new tile backsplash. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients.

Wood Look Tiles and River Rock Installation in Atlantic Beach

Homeowners in Atlantic Beach called us for a free consultation and estimate for installing wood look tile and river rock flooring for some of the floors and bath and shower areas of their home.

Wood look porcelain tile by DaltileWe recommend the quality wood look porcelain tiles made by Daltile. They resist moisture, are easily maintained, and help with heating and cooling (because porcelain remains cool to the touch owing to its composition). Digital imaging and high-tech manufacturing produce wood-grain porcelain tiles with realistic textures and visual details.  Often, it is difficult to distinguish wood look tiles from wood without taking a much closer look.

The project involved installing 1000 square feet of wood look floor tiles, and also installing wood look tile in the two shower areas in the home. One shower area was a stand up shower, in which we installed River Rock flooring by Emser Tile and mirror image corners. The other shower area that we tiled was a tub and shower surround.

The first step of the flooring installation portion of this project was cleaning and leveling the concrete subfloor. As these photos show, there was a massive amount of leveling that had to take place to ensure a flat floor prior to the tile installation.

These photos show us installing the wood look floor tiles. The tile installation was executed in a three step pattern, in which every other one will repeat. The tiles were centered up nicely in the long hallway. One of the installation photos shows some of the intricate tile cuts required to follow the outline of the natural stone surface around the fireplace foundation.

Here are some photos of the wood look tiles being installed on the walls of the tub & shower surround.

And these photos show the wood look floor tiles and tub and shower surround tiles, and River Rock floor installed.

Red Oak Stair Treads and Wood-Look Floor Tiles – Plantation Country Club

New wood-look floor tilesA client in the Plantation community in Ponte Vedra wanted the treads in the staircase of their home replaced with new, solid Red Oak treads to match the existing solid Red Oak wood flooring in the home.

Our client also wanted some wood-look floor tiles installed in an entry way in their home.

Dan’s Floor Store installed, sanded, hand scraped, and stained the new, solid Red Oak stair treads to match the shade of the existing Red Oak flooring. Then we coated the treads with three coats of Bona Traffic finish.

  • We use Bona Traffic because it’s proven to provide a durable finish, and stair treads in a home or business always see a lot of traffic wear.

For the second project in this charming home, the client selected Emser wood-look ceramic tile from their Grove collection

  • We installed the 6″ by 24″ Emser wood-look floor tiles in an entry way hall of the home, which connects the garage, laundry room and bath.

Dan’s Floor Store enjoys helping clients make improvements to their homes and businesses. Our client was very pleased with our finished work.

  • give the stairs in your home or business a new look

Wood Look Floor Tile in Jacksonville Beach

Wood look floor tile (also known as faux wood floor tile) offers the natural look, rich colors and warmth of real wood planks, the rustic look of wood grain and the durability of ceramic or porcelain tile.

The cost of wood look floor tiles versus actual wood plank flooring makes the choice of one material or the other a matter of personal preferences.

Following one of our free Dan’s Floor Store consultations, owners of a home in Jacksonville Beach, Florida decided on porcelain tiles with beautiful wood grain in dark tones by Emser Tile.

Before installing the faux wood floor tiles, we prepared the concrete sub floor by removing the prior flooring, cleaning the surface, and making sure it was sufficiently flat for tile installation.

These wood look floor tiles give a new look and feel to this friendly Jacksonville Beach home.

Flood Water Flooring Replacement in south Jacksonville Beach

New Wide Plank, Hand Rubbed, Distressed, Engineered Wood FlooringThis flood water flooring replacement project began with a call from a repeat client, whose home in south Jacksonville Beach had been flooded; both wood flooring and tile flooring in the home had been damaged by the accidental flooding and had to be replaced.

Dan’s Floor Store is experienced working flooring restoration projects like this, with home owners and their insurance companies.

We began this project by removing the damaged tile and wood flooring.

Once all the tile and wood flooring were removed floor leveling was done and we could begin installing! The client chose LM Flooring – St Laurent European Oak 7 1/4″ wide by 1/2″ thick for this project. New baseboards and shoe molding were provided and also installed.

The client was thankful to get the damaged flooring and tile in their home replaced. They were very pleased with their new floors, and are able to enjoy living in their home again.
