Repair, Sand, Finish Red Oak Floors – Lakeshore, Jacksonville, FL

A client called on Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to restore the old clear grade solid Red Oak floors in a home on the Westside of Jacksonville, Florida. We often find vintage Red Oak flooring in homes like this one, which was built in the 1950s.

We began with the repairs. Some of the subfloor had to be replaced. And some joists needed strengthening by adding 2″ by 4″ boards for support. The old Red Oak floor required several weave-in repairs. One area of the flooring required a 15 plank weave-in repair.

The rest of the original Red Oak flooring was in decent condition.

It took some vigorous sanding to remove the old, tough polyurethane finish.

Then we restored this Red Oak flooring to its original beauty with one coat of clear Pallmann sealer, followed by two coats of Pallmann gold semi gloss. We had restored the original beauty in light natural tones of these Red Oak floors with the waterborne Pallmann finish.

Needless to say, our client was thrilled with the outcome of our vintage solid Red Oak flooring restoration work. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Refinishing Solid White Oak Floors and Stairway – Atlantic Beach

This Atlantic Beach homeowner wanted a beachy look to brighten this home, and contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to refinish and whiten his White Oak floors and stairway.

We began by sanding and hand scraping the edges of 2,600 square feet of solid White Oak hardwood flooring. The floors are a mixture of number one common and number two common. (Number 2 common has more color variations and knotting than number 1 White Oak hardwood flooring.) Our crew also sanded and hand scraped the 18 Oak stair treads in the home, to refinish them.

Our customer selected Bona White stain for his floors and stairway. We stained the White Oak floors and stairs after “popping” the wood grain with water to open them up for a deeper stain results.

Our crew began finishing these White Oak floors and stairs with two coats of Pallmann White Seal.

Then we applied a final coat of Pallmann Pure, to achieve the very low sheen floors and stairs that our client wanted.

Sand and Finish Oak Flooring in St. Augustine Beach

View out the window - St. Augustine Beach.This job took place in St. Augustine Beach. The homeowners were moving here from Pittsburgh and Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was able to squeeze this job into our busy schedule for some new Floridians.

Their floors are number 1 Red Oak with number 2 White Oak flooring planks peppered in here and there. We have also seen this mixture of Red and White Oak planks in flooring in some other homes built in the 1950s.

Our clients wanted a bare/naked wood look for their floors. Pallmann has a product that helped us achieve that look, so our clients asked us to refinish their Oak stair treads to match their Oak floors.

Here are some photos of the Oak floors and stairway, before our crew started work.

We sanded the old, oil modified polyurethane finish off, and hand scraped the edges of the Oak floors and stair treads.

Our crew coated these Oak floors and stair treads with Pallmann Natureseal and Pallmann Pure; companion sealer and finish for giving the bare/naked wood look to the flooring. The result it the look of a freshly sanded Oak floor, but the floor has 3 coats of protection.

This Pallmann finish combination is amazing – the dry look is so clear, more dull than an ultra matte, and it is in trend with the vibe of this St. Augustine Beach house!

Sand, Paint, Finish Wooden Floors – South St. Augustine Beach

Some of the flooring improvement jobs Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 accomplishes in local homes and businesses are part of larger scale renovation projects, working with local contractors.

This remodeling project took place in a home on Atlantic View in South St. Augustine Beach, Florida. The builder envisioned extending the wood flooring with our crew doing a lot of weave-in work, to create a continuous, solid wood floor. And then paint the wooden floors white.

After doing the weave-in wood flooring extension, we sanded the wood floors and hand scraped the edges.

As part of this job, our crew milled our own transition strips out of the solid wood.

After sanding these floors, we applied two coats of Benjamin Moore white paint designed for floors.

The next day, we applied the applied two coats of Pallmann waterborne polyurethane products – Pall-X Clear Sealer – and then Pall-X Power Finish. Then our crew buffed down these first two coats of polyurethane finish, and finished this job with a final coat of Pallmann Gold. Pallmann Gold is a non-ambering, clear, 2 part waterborne polyurethane finish.

We also sanded, painted, and finished the stairway in this home to match the wood floors (but missed getting photos).

The contractor and his clients told us the look that we achieved with these white painted wooden floors and stairway was just what they wanted! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!
