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!

Engineered French Oak Flooring & Treads – Plantation Golf & Country Club PVB

Front view of the project home - Engineered French Oak flooring and stair tread installationDan’s Floor Store was contracted to install engineered French Oak flooring and stair treads in a new construction home in the Plantation Golf & Country Club community of Ponte Vedra Beach.
Boy, from this photo (taken when we went back for more photos) this is becoming such a beautiful home!

Our client selected 8″ wide, engineered French Oak flooring, from Bella Cera’s Villa Borghese collection.

We began by leveling the concrete slab subfloor on the first level. We had to use a large amount of floor leveler to get the concrete slab ready for our wood flooring. Upstairs, our crew went from room to room, sanding all of the plywood subfloor seams to achieve a level surface.

Then we installed 4,000 square feet of the hardwood French Oak flooring. We used flooring straps when installing this French Oak wood flooring, because of the width of the flooring planks.

Our crew also did the staircase, including two landings and 21 treads in the same French Oak flooring, using nosing and flooring for the stair treads. In all, this project took several weeks to complete

The new flooring and stair treads were covered for protection while the rest of the construction work finished.

We returned to the home several weeks later, when the construction work was completed, and our new flooring and stair treads were unveiled. Everything looked great, so we got some more photos of this wood flooring and stairs project.

 

 

Our client was very pleased with our work, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

French Oak Hardwood Flooring Install – Matching Stairs – St. Augustine Beach

French Oak hardwood flooring installedIt’s always nice when a prior client refers a friend to your business. For this wood flooring installation project in Saint Augustine Beach, one of Dan’s Floor Store’s prior clients referred a friend of theirs to us.

Our new client selected Bella Cera Villa Borghese engineered French Oak hardwood flooring in the Alessandra color. This is a really beautiful flooring with that kind of a whitewashed look that blends in beautifully with the beach area in which this house is situated.

Before we could install the new wood flooring, our crew did a massive amount of floor leveling with Bostik SL-150 Self Leveling Underlayment.

Then we had to seal the concrete floor with Bostik MVP4 because of a high level of moisture in the concrete slab subfloor.

Now were were ready to glue the engineered French Oak hardwood flooring down, over top of the MVP4 moisture barrier. The solid oak stair treads were done with a perfect stain match; super beautiful.

Needless to say these customers were so thrilled with the outcome of their wood floor installation and stair tread project. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Match Stained Radius Tread Staircase – Jacksonville Beach

Radius stair treads with custom risersClients from a prior wood flooring installation called Dan’s Floor Store back for another home improvement project. This time we were installing new, solid White Oak stair treads on their two staircases, stained to match the wood flooring we had installed previously in their three story home.

Their White Oak wood flooring by D & M Flooring has a skip sawn, bold, rustic look, achieved using a wire brush that skips to create patterns on the face of the wood flooring. This skip sawn pattern can be seen in the background in some of the photos that show the match stained stair treads laid on the floor. Those photos also show that there was quite a variation in the colors/shades of brown of the wood flooring for our crew to match on these stair treads.

To construct the custom White Oak radius treads, our crew had to glue together two stair treads to get the dimensions we needed. Then we cut out a template for the radius end of the tread from a door skin. Using the template as a guide, we cut the radius treads. Our crew finally molded the solid stair treads to size, to fit over the top of the sub treads and custom risers.

It took some time to find the combination of stain colors, applied in patterns to get the stair treads to match the look of the flooring. Our crew applied several different stain colors, creating a montage of Rubio Monocoat colors to achieve the look to match the wood floors. We were very happy with the results we achieved.

Our crew applied several coats of Bona Traffic HD ultra matte to finish these custom stair treads.

We are really proud of these match stained radius treads. Not only was the stain on the stair treads well matched to the wood flooring, but the custom radius treads along with the custom risers that we installed for them look epic!

Our clients were very impressed with how nice their new staircases look, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Matching Stained and Finished Red Oak Staircase in Ponte Vedra Beach

Ponte Vedra Beach homeowners called on Dan’s Floor Store for a special home improvement project. They wanted us to install new solid Red Oak staircase treads and new stair rail, and wanted the new stair rail and treads to have the look of their existing wood flooring – matching stained.

Dan’s Floor Store has found that it is much more efficient to sand, stain, and finish stair treads prior to installing them. After sanding the individual stair treads, our crew achieved the matching stained look on the Red Oak stair treads with a double stain process. We used quality Minwax stains :

  • the first stain was Red Mahogany
  • the second (top) stain was Honey

Then our crew finished each stair tread with 3 coats of durable Pallmann waterborne Power finish, ultra matte for long lasting protection. Pallmann is a German made finish, from a company that has been in business since 1904!

The stair rail was sanded, stained, and finished to match the stair treads and the wood flooring.

Then our crew installed the finished matching stained stair treads and rail.

Our clients were thrilled to see how nice their Red Oak staircase home improvement project turned out, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Wire Brushed White Oak Flooring and Staircase – Marshview

View of the marsh.This Dan’s Floor Store wood flooring installation and staircase project took place in a home in Marshview.

Marshview is a community just north of Vilano Beach, directly off the Coastal Highway.

The carpeting which is installed in most homes starts to wear and become harder to keep clean after three or four years.

This home improvement project entailed removing the existing carpet in four different rooms and adjacent closets and staircase, and replacing the carpeting with wire brushed White Oak flooring and solid White Oak stair treads.

Our client chose a 9 inch wide by 9/16 inch thick wire brushed European White Oak with a natural top and white stain in the soft grain. This wire brushed White Oak flooring is a product of Nouvelle, in the Camelot collection – Oak Mist.

After removing the carpet from the floors and stairs, we leveled the subfloor, installed the White Oak flooring, and prepared the staircase for the new stair treads.

The staircase required 29 solid White Oak stair treads. We wire brushed the tread after sanding them so they had the same texture as the new wood flooring. Next we stained the stair treads white to mimic the flooring, using white stain in the grain. Our crew finished the new White Oak stair treads with Bona Traffic matte.

There were two landings installed, which we had to do in place. We usually pre-finish the stair treads, prior to installation (to eliminate getting any stain up on skirt boards), and then install them.

Our customers were elated with the outcome of this wood flooring installation and staircase project, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy customers.

Brazilian Cherry Staircase with Wood Flooring Installation

New wood flooring, provided by client and installed by Dan's Floor StoreDan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 sells and installs a wide variety of wood flooring, but we also install wood flooring that our clients purchase elsewhere, and need to have installed in their home or business.

And it always makes us feel good when someone we have done work for calls us to help with another project for their home or business.

This home improvement project took place in a home in Hampton Park, off Gate Parkway in Baymeadows neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida. Our client is an existing customer, so this is repeat business (3rd project for this client). They wanted to replace carpeting with wood in several areas of the home.

After removing all the carpeting and padding, we prepared the subfloor and staircase, and installed our client’s wood flooring in their home’s upstairs sitting area and hallways that lead to the upstairs bedrooms.

For this Brazilian Cherry staircase, our Dan’s Floor Store crew sanded, stained, and finished 17 new Brazilian Cherry stair treads and one landing to blend with the new flooring. We also sanded, stained and finished the existing Red Oak handrail and newel posts to blend with the new Brazilian Cherry stair treads we installed.

To make the wood on the Brazilian Cherry staircase blend with the new wood flooring, we “popped” the grain in the stair treads after sanding the wood. Then we stained the treads with a custom stain that we created, a 50/50 mix of DuraSeal Red Mahogany and Sedona Red. We finished the stair treads, rail, and newel posts with a top coat of durable Bona Mega Clear semi gloss.

Our client was very pleased with their new wood floors, and how good their staircase wood looked. And having happy clients makes us happy too!

Installing Maple Flooring and Matching Stair Treads – Sawgrass Country Club

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 enjoys being able to participate in home improvement projects. New or refinished wood flooring can give a home a whole new look. These clients wanted to replace the existing flooring in their home with wood flooring.

Installed Maple hardwood flooringThe project began when our clients visited our Dan’s Floor Store showroom in Ponte Vedra and selected Nuvelle’s Blowing Rock Maple Cognac for their home. Their selection is 6 1/2″ wide, prefinished, hand-scraped Maple hardwood flooring. They also wanted solid Maple stair treads installed and finished to match their new wood flooring.

Work on this project began with our crew removing 2,000 square feet of wood and tile, and another 700 square feet of carpeting from the floors of a home in the Sawgrass Country Club community.

Our Dan’s Floor Store crew did a massive amount of leveling on first floor subfloor. We level the subfloor prior to installing wood floors to create a flat surface, which minimizes damage to the wood and maximizes the flooring life. Upstairs, we sanded the plywood subfloor seams to provide a level surface for the new wood flooring.

We installed the new Maple flooring on the first and second floors of the home.

We selected solid Maple stair treads, perfectly matched to the prefinished hand-scraped Maple hardwood flooring. Our crew first sanded these stair treads. Then we “popped” the grain in the treads with a little water, to open up the wood grains to better absorb the stain. The crew first applied DuraSeal Espresso stain, followed by a second coat of equal parts of DuraSeal Red Mahogany and Antique Brown. Our staining process infused a touch of red that was prevalent in the prefinished Maple flooring that the clients selected.

These clients were thrilled with their new Maple floors and stairs! And Dan’s Floor Store is always happy when we have happy clients.

Our professionally installed new wood floors (whether solid wood, engineered wood, or laminate), or refinished the wood flooring in your home or business office will improve its looks and value. Give Dan’s Floor Store a call 904.887.8303 to make an appointment for a free consultation and estimate.

New Birch Stair Treads for World Golf Village Home

Because a couple who are prior clients and homeowners in the World Golf Village community loved the engineered wood flooring that we had installed for them, they called us back for a new project.

Stained and finished new birch stair treads in placeThese clients wanted to improve their home by replacing the original stair treads with solid Birch stair treads. In addition, the clients wanted to have the new treads stained to match the wood flooring in their home.

This project involved installing 18 new solid birch stair treads. Some of the treads are very long. The stair treads range in size from the smallest, about 48″ long to the longer ones which are 60″ long to as much as 72″ long.

One of the signs of a well done stair tread installation is how tightly the treads fit to the skirt boards between the wall and the end of each stair tread. Dan’s Floor Store uses a precision jig that we built for making these cuts, to ensure each stair tread fits very tight to the skirt boards of the stairway.

For the bottom stair step, we filled out a frame that attached the subtread, to conform to the curved end of the bottom stair tread for the look that our clients wanted. Using some flexible riser material, we created a flawless look for the riser, including the curved surface of the step.

When Dan’s Floor Store installs and finishes new stair treads, or when we refinish existing stair treads, we pre-finish all of the treads to match the wood flooring prior to installing them. This approach ensures we won’t have any stain blotches / blemishes / over paint on the adjacent painted skirt board, and reduces some of the stain odor in the home. The stair case landings are usually the only portions of a stair case refinishing project that we have to sand, stain and finish in place.

The new birch stair treads turned out really beautiful! We stained them twice with Duraseal stain in Antique Brown. Then we finished the treads with three coats of Bona Mega Clear HD satin.

Red Oak Stair Treads and Wood-Look Floor Tiles – Plantation Country Club

New wood-look floor tilesA client in the Plantation community in Ponte Vedra wanted the treads in the staircase of their home replaced with new, solid Red Oak treads to match the existing solid Red Oak wood flooring in the home.

Our client also wanted some wood-look floor tiles installed in an entry way in their home.

Dan’s Floor Store installed, sanded, hand scraped, and stained the new, solid Red Oak stair treads to match the shade of the existing Red Oak flooring. Then we coated the treads with three coats of Bona Traffic finish.

  • We use Bona Traffic because it’s proven to provide a durable finish, and stair treads in a home or business always see a lot of traffic wear.

For the second project in this charming home, the client selected Emser wood-look ceramic tile from their Grove collection

  • We installed the 6″ by 24″ Emser wood-look floor tiles in an entry way hall of the home, which connects the garage, laundry room and bath.

Dan’s Floor Store enjoys helping clients make improvements to their homes and businesses. Our client was very pleased with our finished work.
