Acacia Wood Flooring Installation in Historic Riverside

This flooring project was subcontracted to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 by a local residential renovation contractor.

Solid Acacia wood flooring - installed.We were contracted to install 3/4″ thick, 4 3/4″ wide, random length, hand scraped solid Acacia wood flooring, color Golden Topaz, by Timber Harvest flooring over multiple layers of flooring that was over 100 years old.

  • The builder provided this solid Acacia flooring.
  • This home is located in the historic Riverside area of Jacksonville, Florida.

The old subflooring was bowed and wavy in various areas. Our crew used Bostik Grip-N-Shield adhesive for this project.

  • Some areas required adhesive and wood shimming. In order to get the maximum contact and ensure a solid bond between the new wood flooring and the wavy and bowed wooden subfloor, we also placed boxes of wood flooring on top of the freshly laid Acacia planks.
  • Our crew started the job off the fireplace. For visual appeal and longer runs, we laid the Acacia planks front to back, as you walk in the front door.
  • Our crew did quite a few precision cuts during this solid Acacia wood flooring installation, such as around the cable through the floor, at the oversized white threshold plate at a bedroom door, and for multiple ventilation duct registers.

Our contractor and their clients were very pleased with our solid Acacia wood flooring installation work. No more bowed and wavy flooring in this home! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Installing Hickory Hardwood Flooring in Palencia

When the owners of a home in the Palencia community in St. Augustine, Florida were ready for a new look for their floors, they called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303.

Stony Brook Hickory hardwood flooring.These homeowners wanted to replace the laminate flooring in most of the rooms of their home. They decided on hand scraped, wire brushed, 7 1/2″ wide engineered Hickory hardwood flooring, called Stony Brook by Naturally Aged, from their Medallion collection for their new wood flooring. This wood flooring comes in random lengths, which makes their floors more visually appealing.

As we started removing the old laminate flooring, we were surprised to find that the laminate had been installed with pressure sensitive glue! (That’s not a recommended, durable adhesive for flooring.) Once the old laminate flooring and the sticky glue were removed, we leveled the concrete slab subfloor of the rooms in the home that were to get the new flooring.

Our clients decided to extend the Hickory hardwood flooring into the bathroom, so we removed the pedestal sink and toilet and prepared that subfloor, too.

We “picture framed” the hearth for the fireplace in the den, and cut a 5′ by 3′ slab of porcelain tile to fit. It made a nice focal point for the room; a nice touch.

Our crew made header boards for the doorways to the bathroom and the master bedroom, so no t-molding. We installed the Hickory hardwood flooring through the rest of the rooms, using durable Bostik Greenforce adhesive.

Our customers told us that they really like how nice their new Hickory floors look, and the porcelain fireplace hearth. Dan’s Floor Store always enjoys having happy clients.

Solid White Oak Flooring Installation in Historic St. Augustine

"She Shed" exteriorHomeowners in historic St. Augustine, near Riberia Street, contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install wood flooring in their recently constructed 2 story structure behind their home.

We called this our “She Shed” project, going with popular definition of a private place in or near a home where a lady can relax, and do what ever she pleases.

Our clients chose quartersawn solid White Oak by Heritage Forest Products for the main flooring, with a border of solid Southern Black Cherry from Goodwin Heart Pine.

Our work started before the stairs to the loft were installed. We used a ladder to get up to the second level, and to help us get the wood flooring up there, too.

With the subfloors leveled, we installed the Southern Black Cherry wood border.

Our crew installed the quartersawn solid White Oak flooring.

After the wood flooring and border installation was complete, we allowed the wood several months time for acclamation. Then our crew sanded and hand scraped the edges of the wood flooring and borders.

And finally our crew applied 3 coats of durable Bona oil modified polyurethane satin finish.

Our clients shared that they were very happy with how nice their new wood floors look. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Homeowners in the Coastal Oaks community in Nocatee, Florida called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate on their flooring home improvement project. They wanted a new look for their floors and stairway; removing the floor tiles in some areas and the carpeting in others.

Our clients selected 7 1/2″ wide engineered White Oak flooring by Sawgrass Hills.

We began the project by removing the old floor tiles and carpeting.

Our crew leveled the subfloors. Whether the subfloor is concrete slab or sheet plywood, getting the subfloors level prior to flooring installation is important to achieving quality results.

We installed the engineered White Oak flooring on the subfloors and the stairway, using strong and reliable Bostik Green Force adhesive. On the stairs, our crew used corresponding nosing and white risers.

Our clients told us they were very pleased with their new floors and stairway. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

French Oak Plank Flooring & Stairs Installation at 20 Mile in Nocatee

Twenty Mile enterance, in Nocatee, FL

This 1,600 square foot flooring job took place in a new home, under construction in the 20 Mile area of Nocatee, Florida.

The hardwood flooring selected for this home was 8″ wide, engineered French Oak plank flooring by Palmetto Road. This Veranda engineered hardwood is from the Charleston collection; a color called Oyster Shell. Our clients also wanted this flooring installed on the stair frame steps.

Dan’s Floor Store works with home owners, business owners, and local contractors. We sell and install various types of hard surface flooring and tile. And we restore, repair, and refinish old hardwood floors, too.

Our crew began work by leveling the concrete slab subfloor. Hardwood flooring needs a level subfloor.

Next, we installed the engineered French Oak plank flooring, using durable GreenForce adhesive by Bostik. In some of these photos, you can see the flooring straps we used to hold the French Oak planks in place during installation.

Installing Australian Cypress Flooring in St. Augustine

View of Moultrie project homeDan’s Floor Store sells a variety of hard surface flooring, and can also install hard surface flooring as provided by the client.

For this project, Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted to install the wood flooring in a new home, under construction in the Moultrie area of St. Augustine, Florida.
And here’s a view of the property the project home is located upon (actually a 40 acre estate) from Phillips highway.

Our client provided a 4 1/4″ wide by 3/4″ thick, solid Australian Cypress plank flooring (in random lengths) for our Dan’s Floor Store crew to install.

We began this flooring project by sanding the edges of the plywood sheet subfloor. The new wood floor needs a level surface beneath it to perform best.

Our crew cut a groove along the bottom of the corner fireplace hearth. This groove will allow us to tuck the ends of the Cypress planks properly underneath the hearth.

We checked the moisture content of the Cypress planks and of the sheet plywood subfloor. Our crew needs to make sure the moisture content of the flooring has acclimated to the relative humidity of the home. This helps prevent wood flooring problems after installation, like warping, buckling, or cracking.
We also took a peek out the back window of the home and saw a deer.

Our crew installed the Australian Cypress using Bostik GreenForce adhesive for a reliable, durable bond. The Cypress planks come in assorted lengths, for added variety in the looks of this flooring installation.

As can be seen in these photos, this batch of Australian Cypress became some very knotty wood flooring.

Our client was very pleased to see how good the new Australian Cypress flooring looks installed. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Engineered Birch Hardwood Flooring Installation – Palencia

These homeowners in the Palencia community in St. Augustine, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install wood flooring in their home.

The couple had selected a 5″ wide, hand scraped and chiseled, and lightly distressed engineered Birch hardwood flooring design. This Birch flooring is called Chattooga, from the River Ridge collection by Palmetto Road floors.

We began this project by moving furniture and removing the old carpeting, and taking a peek out in the backyard of the project home.

Our crew leveled the subflooring, to prepare it for our new wood flooring. For the sheet plywood subfloor upstairs, this means sanding the edges flat. We used Bostik Self Leveling underlayment on the concrete slab on the main floor.

Engineered French Oak Plank Flooring Installed in Ponte Vedra Beach

A local new home builder contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install hardwood flooring in a project home under construction in Ponte Vedra Beach, on Ponte Vedra Boulevard.

We began by doing a large amount of leveling on the concrete slab and plywood sheet subfloors. Our crew always levels the subfloor prior to installing hardwood flooring.

The flooring selected for this project was 8″ wide x 9/16″ thick, engineered French Oak plank flooring from the Charleston collection; Cottonfield by Palmetto Road.

We covered 4,000 sq.ft. of floor with this engineered French Oak hardwood. For this project, our crew used Bostik Green Force adhesive . The flooring straps we use for the wide plank installations can be seen in some of the photos.

A picture framed fireplace, and a change of direction down the hall, leading to the master suite, were two highlights of the main French Oak flooring installation work.

We also installed the French Oak planks and nosing for a staircase.

What we considered to be the showpiece of this flooring project is in the bourbon room, where our crew made a special herringbone design with the French Oak flooring. To create the herringbone pattern, we made additional cuts on each plank, to make the extra tongues and grooves needed for a solid wood floor.

Our clients and builder were thrilled with our work and the outcome. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients and builders.

Engineered Walnut Flooring Installation – San Pablo Creek Reserve

Custom home - San Pablo Creek ReserveThis flooring project involved installing 7 1/2″ wide, engineered Walnut plank flooring by LW Flooring in a new home under construction by one of our custom home builders.

The project home is located in the San Pablo Creek Reserve neighborhood in Southside Jacksonville.

As always, first and foremost, we did the floor leveling. Our crew leveled the concrete slab subfloor to prepare it for the wood flooring installation.

Leveling guarantees a strong bond to subfloor and a solid sounding floor versus a hollow floor sound!

Then we installed the 7 1/2″ wide engineered Walnut flooring using Bostik green force adhesive. Our crew used flooring straps when installing this Walnut flooring, because of the width of the flooring planks.

Our custom builder was very thrilled with the way these Walnut floors look! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers.
