Replacing Tile with French/German White Oak Flooring – Ponte Vedra Beach

A homeowner in the Sea Winds community, off of Corona Road in Ponte Vedra Beach, was ready to replace about 1600 square feet of Mexican style tile flooring in their home with some new wood flooring. They called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate.

After our meeting with the homeowner, they chose Forest Accents Euro Textures engineered French/German White Oak flooring, color name Ardesia for the new wood flooring for their home. This Ardesia wood flooring color has beautiful tones of gray, taupe, and browns within the flooring.

First our crew removed the existing Mexican style tile flooring.

We did a massive amount of leveling of the concrete slab subfloor after the tile flooring was completed.

Our client was super happy with their new French/German White Oak flooring installation, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

French Oak Wood Flooring Installation and Stair Treads to Match in Vilano Beach

This Dan’s Floor Store project was in a new construction house in Vilano Beach, Florida. The home has a nice view across the Tolomato River from the back porch (where we set up a temporary work area).

Our client chose 8″ wide Bella Cera’s engineered French Oak wood flooring; Galano from the Villa Borghese collection for this project.

Our crew did a lot of prep work on the plywood subfloor, i.e., sand off paint overspray and sanding down unlevel plywood seams.

We used flooring straps when installing the French Oak wood flooring, because of the width of the flooring planks.

Our crew sanded, stained, and finished the individual stair treads to match the new French Oak wood flooring, prior to installing them. We have found that working on the stair treads prior to installing them is much more efficient. Prior to installation is preferred to doing the stair tread work in place.

Our client agreed that the new wood floors and stained and finished stair treads turned out beautifully, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Installing Wide White Oak Flooring for Fernandina Beach Yoga Studio

A lady in Fernandina Beach called Dan’s Floor Store because the bamboo flooring in her Yoga Studio was failing. Solid bamboo wood flooring is nothing but a problem flooring for Florida!

Our client decided to replace the bamboo with a wide White Oak flooring.

First our crew removed all of the bamboo flooring.

Next. we had to do a massive amount of leveling! The concrete slab subfloor was covered in dips. 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!

Our crew installed a beautiful European wide White Oak flooring from the BELROSE collection by Azur Reserve.

The oak planks are 9 1/2” wide x 5/8” thick, with a 4mm sawn face; it is an absolutely stunning wood floor product! We used Bostik’s GreenForce adhesive for the installation. We have confidence in this proven no VOC adhesive, which includes an effective moisture barrier membrane. Because these are wider wood planks, we used special flooring straps to hold the planks in place during installation. Then our Dan’s Floor Store crew finished the job by installing vinyl baseboards.

Needless to say our client was thrilled with the outcome of her new White Oak wood flooring for her yoga studio! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Forest Accents Ardesia XWA Ponte Vedra Beach homeowner contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install 1,500 square feet of White Oak flooring in their home.

Our client selected 7 1/2″ wide, engineered French/German White Oak (Ardesia XW) wood flooring, made by Forest Accents, from their Euro Textures line.

As can be seen in the following photos, we did a massive amount of leveling on the concrete slab subfloor prior to this wood flooring installation.

Our crew used Bostik Pro Cure adhesive to accomplish the French/German White Oak flooring installation.

We finished this flooring project out with shoe molding to match the baseboard. A hallway was installed on the diagonal, for added visual effect. And our crew also sanded, stained and refinished the lower existing stair tread to match the new wood flooring.

Our client was very happy to see how nice their new French/German White Oak flooring installation looked, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Wire Brushed White Oak Wood Flooring Install – Neptune Beach

Dan’s Floor Store clients include home and condo owners, business owners, as well as new construction building contractors and home improvement renovators.

For this wood flooring project, we were working with a local home builder on a new home in Neptune Beach. The builder provided 950 square feet of character grade, wire brushed White Oak wood flooring, with a machine sculpted top of 4 mm for our crew to install.

Before installing the wood flooring, we had to level the concrete subfloor. And this slab required a large amount of leveler to achieve a flat surface for the wire brushed White Oak flooring.

At Dan’s Floor Store, we pride ourselves on our subfloor leveling prowess. Leveling the subfloor is an important step; the flat surface minimizes damage to the installed wood flooring and maximizes the flooring life.

Our crew used flooring straps to keep the wood flooring planks tightly together while installing them. For these super wide plank White Oak boards, the flooring straps were very helpful. And we used Bostik’s Pro-Cure adhesive for this application.

When the homeowner saw her new wire brushed White Oak wood flooring installed, she was so happy she told us that she wants us to come back and install wood flooring in the bedrooms of her new home in the future. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients like this.

Handscraped Hickory Flooring Install – Nocatee

Installed Pergo handscraped hickory flooringA homeowner in Willowcove in Nocatee contracted Dan’s Floor Store to install Pergo handscraped Hickory flooring (which they had already purchased) in their home.

Of course, we sell solid wood, engineered wood, laminate, luxury vinyl plank flooring from our Dan’s Floor Store showroom in Ponte Vedra, but we will also install wood flooring for clients, too.

This client contracted us to install their wood flooring over existing tile in their home. We explained that the best way to install their wood flooring would be to allow us to remove the old tile, level the floor, and then install their wood flooring. We cannot warranty a wood flooring installation over existing tile, because if the tile comes up, then the wood flooring on top will come up too. We explained that to our client and also stated that in writing with the homeowner. But the homeowner said they understood and still wanted their handscraped Hickory flooring installed over their existing tile flooring, so that is what we did.

Our crew used Bostiks GreenForce adhesive to adhere the wood flooring to the tile.

We also installed new quarter round and various moldings to complete the job.

Our homeowner client was very pleased with their new Pergo handscraped Hickory flooring installation, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients.

Prefinished Birch Wood Flooring Installation – World Golf Village

Installed handscraped prefinished birch wood flooringReplacing existing carpeting with wood flooring is an improvement project that increases the value of a home, a condo, or a business.

As part of this home improvement project for this World Golf Village condo, we replaced existing carpeting with prefinished birch wood flooring.

The first step was removing 700 square feet of carpeting from the condo.

Next our Dan’s Floor Store crew leveled the concrete subfloor in the area that had been carpeted. We level the subfloor prior to installing wood floors to create a flat surface, which minimizes damage to the wood and maximizes the wood flooring life.

With the subfloor leveled, we installed the 5″ wide by 3/8″ thick, hand scraped, prefinished Birch wood flooring. as provided by the builder.

Our crew made our own moldings for this project, and did some clean carpet tucks where the wood and carpet in bedrooms met. This job turned out great, and our homeowner was pleased. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Sand and Finish Engineered White Oak Flooring and Stairs- Crescent Beach

Beach view from the project home.This home had been damaged during Hurricane Irma, in the fall of 2017.
These Crescent Beach community homeowners (in St. Augustine, Florida) called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to restore their water damaged wood floor and staircase.

During the storm, wind and water came in through the windows and doors of the home. You can see some of the water damaged wood flooring and stairs in these photos.

Our crew began working this project by drying out the wet subfloor with dehumidifiers and high powered fans. Then our crew repaired over 500 square feet of engineered White Oak flooring (weave-in repairs with new White Oak flooring).

To restore the wood flooring and staircase, we sanded and hand scraped the edges of:

  • 2,000 square feet of White Oak flooring
  • 30 stair treads
  • 8 stairway newel posts
  • 80 linear feet of stair railing

The engineered White Oak flooring had a tough aluminum oxide finish. Our crew used a lot of sandpaper to go through all the stages of sanding the wood flooring to prepare it for refinishing.

It takes a lot of sandpaper to remove the tough, aluminum oxide finish on wood flooring.

We applied Bona oil-modified DriFast Sealer to the sanded wood.

Then our crew buffed between each of the next coats and applied Bona Woodline oil-modified, polyurethane Satin finish for a tough protective coat and slight amber color to enhance the natural tone of the wood.

Our clients were very happy to see how nice their floors and staircase looked when restored, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Engineered White Oak Wood Flooring Installation – Palencia Country Club

When owners were ready to replace the carpeting in the master bedroom and office of their Palencia home, they called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate.

Closeup - solid white oak wood flooringThese clients liked the engineered White Oak wood flooring that they already had installed in their main living room; a product of LM flooring. Since we carry LM flooring in our store, we ordered the same exact flooring for the master bedroom and office of their home.

The first day of this project, we tore out the old carpeting in the two selected areas of the home.

The same day, our crew did the floor leveling using quality Bostik products. Floor leveling is required on almost every wood floor installation project, to create a flat surface, which decreases hollow areas beneath the wood flooring planks, to minimize damage to the wood and maximize the flooring life.

The next day, our Dan’s Floor Store crew installed all the new engineered White Oak wood flooring, about 400 square feet of it.

And on our last day on the job site, we finished the project out with shoe molding all around the new wood floors and helped move the client’s furniture back in place.

Our clients were very happy with their new engineered White Oak wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Stores always likes to have happy clients.

Brazilian Pecan Hardwood Flooring Installation – Palencia

Installed Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooringHomeowners in the Palencia community along the west bank of the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine were ready for a new look in their home. They contacted Dan’s Floor Store for their flooring home improvement project – to replace 1,000 square feet of their tile flooring with some exotic wood flooring.

Our clients chose a 5 1/4″ by 1/2″ thick engineered Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooring with a “chocolate” stain by Triangulo for their new wood floor. This wood flooring, like most Brazilian specie, has a large amount of variation from plank to plank. It makes a wild looking, beautiful floor.

First our Dan’s Floor Store crew had to remove the old tile flooring.

A large amount of cuts had to be made prior to the tile being removed.

Checking moisture content of the concrete slab subfloor, we found the tile had been set prior to the slab being fully cured. So next we leveled the concrete slab, applying Bostik Universal Primer and then Bostik SL-150 Leveling Compound. To protect the wood flooring we were about to install for this project, we abated the moisture in the slab with Bostik’s MVP (Moisture Vapor Protection).

We installed the Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooring with Bostik Greenforce hardwood flooring adhesive. Application of Bostik Greenforce provides additional moisture protection for the new wood flooring, as well as long term adhesive durability.

Our Dan’s Floor Store crew finished out this project by installing floor trim molding around the new Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooring and at the doorways, and then kicked the carpeting back at each of the doorways to the bedrooms.

Our customers were thrilled with their new hardwood flooring! And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy customers.
