Articles about Wood Flooring Refinishing Projects by Dan’s Floor Store of Ponte Vedra, Florida.

Southern Yellow Pine Stain and Refinish with Stair Treads – St. Augustine

Owners of a riverfront home in St. Augustine called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate on a home flooring improvement project. They wanted to stain and refinish their Southern Yellow Pine flooring. The homeowners also wanted their White Oak stair treads refinished, using the same stain.

After the meeting, we got the job!

Our crew began work on this project by sanding and hand scraping the edges of the Southern Yellow Pine plank floors, and sanding the White Oak stair treads.

We “popped” the wood grain on the floor and stairs with water. This opens the wood grain up for a more even, darker and deeper stain effect.

To get the look the homeowners wanted for their wood flooring and stair treads, we used quality Bona Antique Brown stain for both.

Our crew finished the Southern Yellow Pine plank floors and White Oak stair treads with one coat of Pallmann sealer. And then we applied two coats of durable Pallmann Power satin finish.

Our clients were delighted to see their refinished Southern Yellow Pine wood floors, and White Oak stairs. 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!

Sand, Stain, and Finish Wood Flooring at Matthew’s Restaurant in San Marco

Matthew's Restaurant of San Marco, in Jacksonville, FloridaMatthew’s Restaurant in San Marco, in Jacksonville, has been recognized as one of Northeast Florida’s most distinctive restaurants since its opening in 1997.

Chef Matthew of Matthew’s Restaurant, and Dan DiCarlo, owner of Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 have been friends for over 25 years.

The Restaurant was being closed for a week for renovations under a tight timeline, and Chef Matthew called Dan to refinish (sand, stain, and finish) the bar area Oak wood flooring.

Our crew started work at 5AM, sanding the bar floor with rough paper. Then we sanded the Oak floor with fine paper, hand scraped the corners and palm sanded all the ends to eliminate any sanding marks. Next our crew buffed the job smooth.

To achieve a deep stain, we “popped” the wood flooring grain with water applied with damp cloths.

We applied Bona Ebony stain. Our crew applied on coat of Pallmann clear, followed by one coat of Pallmann Power ultra matte finish.

Two days later, after the bar area had been painted, we buffed down the job and put a final coat of Pallmann 98 ultra matte.

Matthew and his staff were thoroughly pleased with our performance and the beautiful wooden bar floor job we left! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand, White Wash and Finish Maple Flooring and Staircase – Marsh Landing Country Club

White washed look Maple flooringA couple moving to our First Coast from Chicago called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a Free consultation and estimate. The couple had purchased a beautiful home in the Marsh Landing Country Club community. They wanted their solid Maple and engineered Maple (by Mirage) floors sanded and finished, and we got this flooring project!

Our clients also wanted a white wash look for these Maple floors. Maple is a lighter color specie, however the existing maple was super yellowed. This yellowing happens naturally, because Maple has the tendency to yellow with age. Fortunately, as soon as you put the sander on it and start sanding this wood flooring, it goes back to a super light color!

You can see the color difference in these 3 pieces of Maple natural flooring.

We really like our clients’ concept for these Maple floors. There is a beautiful look to Maple with the white washed look!

Our crew sanded and hand scraped the edges of the Maple flooring.

Our clients also wanted their staircase to have this white washed look. So we sanded and hand scraped the edges of the 25 stairs and risers, and the handrail.

We applied Bona NordicSeal to give the Maple floors and stairway the white washed look. Then we buffed down those first two coats. Our crew finished the Maple floor with two coats of Pallmann Power Ultra Matte. The stair rail was Brazilian Cherry wood, and we coated with the white washing agent many times (five coats) to get it light and non reddish!

The clients were astounded with the transformation of their floors and stairway! And Dan’s Floor Store always 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.

Sand and Finish American Cherry Flooring – St. Augustine, Florida

Refinished American Cherry flooringHomeowners in south St. Augustine, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and refinish the American Cherry flooring in their home.

American cherry is a rare specie to see these days. Most flooring manufacturers stopped making it because of how soft it is, but it is a very beautiful flooring.

They had pre-finished aluminum oxide American Cherry flooring in their home. Aluminum oxide is a very tough finish. It took three cuts with the sander to get all of the old finish off the wood flooring.

Next our crew applied Bona oil-modified DriFast Sealer.

We finished the American Cherry flooring with two coats of Bona oil-modified polyurethane finish for a tough protective coat with a slight amber color to enhance the natural tone of the wood.

Needless to say our clients were very happy with the outcome of their newly sanded and refinished American Cherry floors. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!
