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!

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 Procure adhesive.

We finished this job by installing shoe molding around the edges of the new wire brushed Hickory flooring. Our clients told us they were absolutely flabbergasted by the look of their new floors. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

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!

Removal – Install, Sand, Stain, and Finish Red Oak Flooring – Jacksonville, FL

Westside Jacksonville homeowners contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to remove tile and carpeting from their home, and install Red Oak flooring.

To get the Red Oak flooring with the look our clients wanted, we recommended 5″ wide, unfinished engineered Red Oak by Maxwell, that we would custom stain to their preference. This wood flooring is made in the USA, and has a 4mm sawn face.

First our crew removed the old tile and carpeting.

The concrete slab subfloor of the home required us to do an immense amount of leveling. A wood flooring installation requires a flat surface.

We began installing the Red Oak flooring by putting a header board at the master bedroom, where some 5″ wide flooring had previously been installed. Our crew lined the new Red Oak boards up with the existing ones, for visual continuity and harmony. We installed, then sanded all of the new wood flooring. 

Next, our crew stained the new Red Oak boards with a custom blend of 3 quality Bona stains – 2 parts Cocoa ,2 parts Antique Brown, and 1 part Golden Oak. For finishing, we applied 3 coats of durable Pallmann finish – 1 coat of clear sealer, and 2 coats of semi gloss Power.

Needless to say, our clients were thrilled with the outcome of this floor job. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Hickory Hardwood Flooring Installation in Jacksonville Beach

One of our contractor associates called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to help with home improvements to the flooring in a 3 level condominium, located just west of the Intracoastal Bridge in the Beach Boulevard area of Jax Beach – Lighthouse Point.

First our crew removed the existing wood and carpet flooring from the second and third floors of the condo. Then we leveled those subfloors, to prepare them for our new wood flooring installation. The subfloors on all jobs done by Dan’s Floor Store must be leveled prior to flooring installation, to guarantee a strong bond to subfloor and a solid sounding floor versus a hollow floor sound! This job took 17 bags of Bostiks SL 150 Self Leveler to get the floors leveled!

With the subfloor leveled, our crew installed the hand scraped and wire brushed engineered Hickory hardwood flooring; Sunset Hills by Naturally Aged Flooring. We used Bostik Pro Cure adhesive for this 7 1/2” wide hickory hardwood flooring installation. You can see the flooring straps our crew used to install these wide flooring planks in some of the photos.

And, needless to say, the clients loved their new wood floors! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Install, Screen and Coat Red Oak Flooring – Hampton Glen

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 got a call from homeowners in Hampton Glen, a subdivision next to Deerwood (off Baymeadows Road in Jacksonville). These prior clients wanted us to install some Red Oak flooring in their master bedroom, and screen and coat the Red Oak flooring we had previously sanded and finished for them.

Our crew removed 250 square feet of existing carpeting, then leveled the concrete slab floor using Bostik SL-150 Self Leveling underlayment. And then we installed the 2 1/4″ wide unfinished, plain sawn / slice cut, engineered Red Oak flooring by Maxwell (Townsend Additions line) using Bostik Pro Cure adhesive.

Our crew sanded the new Red Oak flooring, then finished it with one coat of Pallmann Pall-X Color, color sealer. We followed up with 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power finish water borne polyurethane, in ultra matte.

Screen and Coat is a good maintenance procedure to protect your wood floors. When we “screen and coat” wood flooring, we use a buffer and a mesh screen covered with an abrasive, instead of regular sand paper discs. Screening provides lighter abrasion to the floor finish, providing a good roughness that helps the new finish coat of polyurethane adhere properly. We recommend screening and coating wood floors that get normal use on a 5 year cycle, to restore the finish and protect the wood flooring. We screened and coated 1,200 square feet of the plain sawn / slice cut Red Oak flooring with Walnut inlays in this home. Our crew applied water based polyurethane finish; Pallmann’s Pall-X Power finish water borne polyurethane.

Our customers loved the job we did on their Red Oak floors, and even wrote us a very nice Review. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

American Walnut Flooring Installation and New Steps – Plantation Country Club

American Walnut flooring installedPlantation Country Club homeowners called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install American Walnut wood flooring in their home. This project included replacing the marble flooring in the foyer of their home with the new wood flooring. The homeowners also wanted to change the shape of the steps from the foyer into the main floor of the home.

First our crew removed the marble flooring in the foyer. (Unfortunately, we didn’t get photos of this segment of the project.) Next, we re-framed the whole foyer, making the steps longer across the foyer (instead of the trapezoidal shaped steps which had been there). Now the foyer is symmetrical and the steps are wider. The wider steps provide easier access to the home living area.

The concrete slab floor required a massive amount of leveling! Leveling creates a level surface for the wood flooring to be installed. For this project, leveling also makes the surface of the wood flooring flush with the existing marble flooring in the home, without requiring transition moldings.

Our clients chose 7 1/2″ wide, duChateau engineered American Walnut flooring, from the Vernal collection. We used Bostik’s ProCure adhesive to install the American Walnut flooring in this home.

For us, the step work /re-framing really sets this job off. Our clients said they were simply blown away with our work and how lovely this project area looks now. They told us that the re-shaped foyer and steps are a welcome improvement to their home. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!
