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.

Installing Winter Oak plank flooring in Nocatee

Some Dan’s Floor Store flooring projects cover large areas of flooring in a home or business. Others may focus on one or two rooms, or a staircase or more. These homeowners, live in the Coastal Oaks community of Nocatee. They contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to replace the old carpeting in the second floor of their home with Oak wood flooring.

Our clients chose 7″ wide engineered Winter Oak plank flooring from the Vintage collection by Mohawk for this home improvement.

First we removed 1,600 square feet of old carpeting. In one of the photos, looking over the banister, you can see the Oak plank flooring on the first floor. The new Oak flooring will continue that look on the second floor.

Next we leveled the second floor plywood subfloor to prepare it for the Oak plank flooring installation, by sanding and hand scraping any high spots.

Our crew started installing the Winter Oak plank flooring from the top of the stairs, running the planks front to back like downstairs. We used flooring straps to hold the wide planks in place during installation.

The banister was much higher than the flooring. So, we milled down custom trim pieces to frame the base of the banister. Our crew also made custom trim for the bathroom doorways.

Such a beautiful area! Lots of wildlife! We saw a gator and two red tail hawks while we were there. Here are some photos from the back yard of the home.

Our clients told us they loved how their new Winter Oak plank floors look. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

FSC White Oak Flooring Install and Match Stain Stairs in Shearwater

After this homeowner had closed on his new home in the Shearwater community, near St. Augustine, Florida, he contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a flooring and stairway improvement project.

Our client wanted FSC certified White Oak flooring installed in his home in several rooms, in place of the carpeting, which had also been installed on the stairway. And he wanted Oak stair treads on his staircase, match stained for the same look as the new wood flooring. We can do that!

Contractor grade carpeting usually lasts several years and then begins to break down. When the carpeting breaks down, it retains more dirt and pollen, and little pieces of fiber from the carpet break off and go into the air in the home as lint. (And nobody needs more lint in their home!)

We began this project by removing 10,000 square feet of carpeting from the home, from spaces including 3 bedrooms, a loft living room, and the stairway and landing.

Our client had selected FSC certified, 7″ wide, oil finished White Oak flooring, Brushed Patina, Root by Tesoro. An FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

After leveling the subfloors, we applied Bostik’s Green Force zero VOC adhesive for installing the White Oak flooring planks.

Creating a matching stain for the solid White Oak stair treads took some experimenting. Dan’s Floor Store is experienced in match staining wood. Matching the look with stain is sometimes more challenging. Even though this was a hard wood flooring color to mimic, by mixing different ones, Dan was able to create a matching stain in about 10 minutes! We are very proud of the stain match!

For this project, we used Ribio Monocoat, a No VOC oil coating. The final combination of Bourbon, Dark Oak , Oyster, Ash Grey, and Stone Ribio Monocoat stain colors resulted in an impeccable visual match for the Oak stair treads to the newly installed White Oak flooring.

Our customer was absolutely, positively thrilled with his new FSC Certified White Oak floors and match stained staircase! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Engineered 5" wide White Oak flooringA homeowner in the Mandarin community of Jacksonville, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to remove the old wood flooring, then install 5″ wide White Oak flooring for him. We can do that!

The old wood flooring.

Our client selected engineered, 5″ wide White Oak flooring, from the Diamonds Forever collection by UA Floors.

First our crew removed the old wooden flooring.

Then we did a massive amount of leveling on the concrete slab subfloor, to properly prepare it for the new 5″ wide White Oak flooring.

Time to install the new wood flooring! We installed all of the 5″ wide White Oak flooring running front to back in the home. This was the opposite direction that the wood flooring had been installed prior. We used Bostik Green Force adhesive for this job.

Before we started this job, our crew moved all of the client’s furniture out, and then replaced it after. And we installed all new shoe molding with the new White Oak flooring. Needless to say, our customer was thrilled with his new White Oak floors, and he also gave us a great Google review!

Engineered White Oak Hardwood Flooring Installation – Hammock Beach FL

Engineered White Oak flooring - installedAs part of a new home construction project, Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted to install 1,600 square feet of engineered White Oak hardwood flooring. And this flooring was also installed on the stair frame, to create a matching staircase. The home is located in the northern part Hammock Beach, Florida.

The homeowners chose 7 1/2″ wide by 5/8″ thick White Oak flooring in random lengths. This flooring is made by Sawgrass Hills, in the color named Malaga. Our crew did quite a bit of a leveling of the concrete slab subfloor, as in all jobs. We prepare the substrate so that the flooring which we install lays level across it. A leveled subfloor means there will be no hollow spots under your new flooring. Next our crew installed the White Oak flooring using Bostik Green Force Adhesive and Moisture Control Membrane.

We covered the stair frame with the same White Oak flooring and stair nosing, for a matching look. The stair treads that our crew made feature mitered returns for a nice, finished look.

Needless to say the clients and our builder we did the job for were ecstatic with the outcome. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Caribbean rosewood flooring and Emser tiled foyerDan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted to do the flooring work in a whole home renovation in the Eagle Harbor community of Fleming Island, Florida.

View of extension on back / river side of project home.Homeowners on CR 13 in St. Augustine contracted Dan’s Floor Store to help with their flooring, as part of their home improvement project.

They were adding an extension on the rear of their riverfront home, and wanted to extend the quarter sawn solid White Oak flooring inside.

There was no leveling required for this job, because the wood flooring was installed directly to the subfloor. It was a nailed down installation. (We used our Woodwise White Oak test kit to verify the existing wood flooring was white oak.) Our crew started work by cutting weave in pattern into the ends of the existing White Oak flooring planks. This will create a continuous look to the pattern of the wood flooring.

After removing the cut out wood, we began weaving in the White Oak flooring planks. and installing the unfinished, solid White Oak quarter sawn select flooring by Oakcrest Lumber.

Our floor sander vacuum filled up 7 bags with sawdust while rough sanding the new quarter sawn White Oak flooring, and the finish from the old White Oak plank floor.

Our crew finished the quarter sawn White Oak flooring with three coats of tough and durable Bona Woodline satin polyurethane.

These clients told us that we had achieved just the look they wanted for their home renovations, with the new and refinished White Oak flooring. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Installing Wire Brushed Hickory Flooring – Ponte Vedra Beach

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was called to help with a flooring improvement project by these Ponte Vedra Beach home owners, who had also been our clients years ago.

It’s always nice when prior clients calls you to help with another flooring project. They had purchased a new house, and they did not like the wood flooring that was in there.

Our clients selected an engineered hardwood, wire brushed Hickory flooring by Bella Cera for their new home. The random width flooring planks are 4″, 5″, and 6″ wide, with distinct sawmark directions and textures, and color variation for a nice visual effect. This is one of the array of wood flooring brands that we sell and install

Our crew began this job by removing all of the old flooring.

Next, we did extensive leveling of the concrete slab subfloor, to prepare it for the new hardwood flooring.

Our crew installed the Hickory flooring with Bostik’s Pro-cure adhesive.

Sand, Stain, Finish Red Oak Flooring and Staircase – Fruit Cove

Saws set up on the back patio.This flooring and staircase project took Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to a home in the gated community called Bayside, in the Switzerland / Fruit Cove, Florida area.

Our clients selected unfinished, engineered, rotary peeled Red Oak flooring by Howell hardwood flooring for their home improvement project.

First our crew leveled the concrete slab subfloor, to prepare it for the new wood flooring.

Next we installed the new Red Oak flooring planks, lining them up to the existing lines of the old floor.

We sanded the Red Oak flooring and then “popped” the grain of the wood planks with water to open them up for better stain absorption.

Our crew stained the wood flooring with Bona Antique Brown stain.

Then we finished the wood flooring in this room with Pallmann products. Our crew applied one coat of Pallman Pall-X Clear sealer , then a coat of Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish. We buffed down the floor and applied a final coat of Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish. Our crew finished this room first, so that the grand piano could be moved into the room, and we could do the rest of the job.

We refinished the adjacent Red Oak floors in the home to match the new Red Oak flooring. This part of the job included weave-in repair of 10 damaged flooring planks.

Our crew also sanded and stained the stair treads to match, as well as the stair rail.

Our clients said they were impressed with our work and how nice the wood floors and stair cases looked. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Install, Sand and Finish Red Oak Flooring – Mandarin

Riverside Mandarin - client's homeClients whose home was was damaged by Hurricane Irma (which came through Jacksonville, Florida in September 2017), called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to help restore their home.

This project started with us leveling the concrete slab subfloor (as we do for all wood flooring installation jobs). Our clients selected a 3″ wide, unfinished, engineered Red Oak flooring by Maxwell. This wood flooring product is made in the USA, and will harmonize with the existing 3″ wide Red Oak flooring on the upper floor. (Which our crew will sand and stain in a few weeks, to match the color wood flooring selected for the first floor wood.) We installed the Red Oak flooring using Bostik Pro Cure adhesive. To prepare the fireplace in the center of the room for the new wood flooring, our crew undercut the bottom edge with a jamb saw equipped with a diamond blade. We measured and cut each board to fit the bumpy contour of the central fireplace with a jig saw.

After completing the flooring installation, our crew began sanding the new flooring. Our client’s selection of an engineered wood flooring was a benefit to the time frame required for this project. This is because engineered wood does not require acclimation time after installation; we can begin sanding the flooring to prepare for staining and finishing immediately.

Next we “popped the grain” of the wood with water, to achieve a deep, beautiful color stain. Our crew applied Bona Jacobean stain.

We finished this Red Oak flooring with 1 coat of Pallmann Clear Sealer, and 2 coats of Pallmann Power finish – satin.

Our customers told us that they were overjoyed to see their beautiful Red Oak floors. And Dan’s Floor Store always enjoys having happy clients! We will be back in a few weeks to sand, stain and finish the Red Oak flooring upstairs. So, “Stay tuned” for a follow-up article about our work in this home!
