European Oak Flooring Installation in Sawmill Lakes

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 enjoys helping clients with their flooring home improvement projects like this one!

Following one of our Free consultation and estimate meetings, these homeowners selected 9 1/2″ wide engineered hardwood European Oak – Baron, from the Grande Savoy collection by DuChateau –  for their home in the Sawmill Lakes community of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

After our crew removed the existing flooring, we leveled the concrete slab subfloor with Bostik SL-150 self-leveling underlayment. A level subfloor is important for a quality wood flooring installation! Leveling protects the wood flooring from flexing damage after installation.

Then we installed the 9 1/2″ wide European Oak flooring, using quality Bostik GreenForce adhesive. The flooring straps we use for the wide plank installations can be seen in some of the photos.

Our clients told us that they loved their new hardwood European Oak hardwood floors! And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Replace Red Oak with White Oak flooring in Palencia

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 works hard to have happy clients. A majority of our flooring and tile work is the result of recommendations from prior clients, and even from repeat clients!

This flooring project took place on a street in the Palencia Country Club community where we have done many prior jobs. Actually, this flooring project was a result of the recommendation from the next door neighbor, who is one of our prior clients from a few years ago.

For this job, homeowners wanted a new look for the floors in their home; replacing their old, Red Oak floors and the tile flooring in their laundry room. They selected 7 1/2″ wide, engineered White Oak flooring by Sawgrass Hills, color Malaga.

Here’s a look at the 3″ wide, rotary peeled Red Oak floors they had, and the laundry room tile floor.

Our crew removed their old Red Oak flooring and the tile flooring. Then we leveled the concrete slab subfloor. It’s important for the new flooring to lay as flat as possible on the subfloor, for a quality flooring installation.

Next our crew installed the 7 1/2″ wide White Oak flooring, using durable Bostik GreenForce adhesive. You can see the flooring straps we use to hold the wider wood planks in place during installation in the photos.

These clients told us they were very happy with the look of their new White Oak floors. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

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.

New homeowners in the older side of Sawgrass Country Club were referred to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 by one of the Best realtors/real estate brokers in Ponte Vedra Beach!

Our clients were moving back to Ponte Vedra Beach from Atlanta and needed this large scale flooring and stair job done in their new home, before they were due to move in!

Sanded and scraped Oak wood flooring, stair treads and handrails.

We finished these Oak floors, stair treads and handrails with durable Pallmann Clear sealer and Pallmann Gold finish.

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.

Engineered White Oak Flooring Installation in Nocatee

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.

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.

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.
