Painted Stairways for a Home on the St. Johns River

Owners of a country home on Florida County Road 13 (with a nice view of the St. Johns River) contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and finish their two stairways for a new look for their home. We can do that!

During their FREE on-site consultation, these clients selected a matte black Sherwin Williams stair paint for their staircases.

Our crew began by sanding and hand scraping the edges of the Maple stair treads and landings of the stairways. Bare wood helps the stair paint adhere better to last longer, through daily traffic.

We masked off the areas of the stairways to be painted. Then our crew applied the quality Sherwin Williams stair paint with a matte black finish.

For added durability while retaining the non-reflective finish, we added a Pallmann matte to finish to the painted staircases.

Our clients told us that we had achieved just the look they had wanted for their stairs! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

The owners of a home in the Markland community, in St. Augustine, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to refinish their Red Oak staircase to match the look of the laminate flooring in their home.

Our crew sanded and then hand scraped the stair treads, landings, and rails. Next we applied a black stain to the Red Oak wood, then sanded the surfaces just enough, leaving some of the stain in the wood grain. Our crew added a smokey look to the stair treads with a Rubio Monocoat Smoke .

We followed this up with Rubio Monocoat Natural. Allowed several weeks; ample time to cure. And then our crew coated the stairs, landings and rails with Pallmann Pall-X Gold.

Refinish Red Oak Stairway – Payasada in Ponte Vedra Beach

Homeowners in the Payasada community in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to refinish their Red Oak stairway to harmonize with the White Oak flooring in their home.

Red Oak stair treads and landings often have a orangey-pinkish hue to them. Overcoming / subduing the pink shades in Red Oak to mimic White Oak is a tough obstacle. But Dan’s Floor Store gets the job done!

After sanding and hand scraping the edges of these Red Oak stair treads and landings, our crew applied a white stain. Next came two coats of Pallmann White Seal on top of two coats of Pallmann Pure. This resulted in a duller than matte finish look that our clients wanted.

  • Pallmann matte sheen level is 10.
  • The sheen level of these stair treads and landings was 2 to 3; much duller than matte.
  • This further helped subdue the pink shades in the Red Oak wood.

Our clients told us their Red Oak stairway turned out beautifully, and we had to agree with them. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have a happy client.

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 had done a removal and new installation flooring project at this home in the Palencia Golf and Country Club community, several months ago. Now our client was ready to have their wooden staircase refinished to harmonize and correlate with their 7 1/2″ wide engineered White Oak flooring, in Malaga by Sawgrass Hills.

The Red Oak treads on this staircase had a massive amount of orangey-gunstock color to them. It is often a challenge to subdue the shades of pink that pop out when finishing Red Oak wood.

First we sanded and hand scraped the treads and landing.

0ur crew was able to subdue the pink hues with a special combination of Bona stains. We finished these Red Oak treads with 3 coats of Pallmann Gold Ultra Matte.

After our crew had the handrail sanded, our client wanted it painted, so we did!

Our client was impressed with how well their refinished Red Oak staircase harmonized with their White Oak flooring. 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!

FSC White Oak Flooring Install and Match Stain Stairs in Shearwater

After this homeowner had closed on his new home in the Shearwater community, near St. Augustine, Florida, he contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a flooring and stairway improvement project.

Our client wanted FSC certified White Oak flooring installed in his home in several rooms, in place of the carpeting, which had also been installed on the stairway. And he wanted Oak stair treads on his staircase, match stained for the same look as the new wood flooring. We can do that!

Contractor grade carpeting usually lasts several years and then begins to break down. When the carpeting breaks down, it retains more dirt and pollen, and little pieces of fiber from the carpet break off and go into the air in the home as lint. (And nobody needs more lint in their home!)

We began this project by removing 10,000 square feet of carpeting from the home, from spaces including 3 bedrooms, a loft living room, and the stairway and landing.

Our client had selected FSC certified, 7″ wide, oil finished White Oak flooring, Brushed Patina, Root by Tesoro. An FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

After leveling the subfloors, we applied Bostik’s Green Force zero VOC adhesive for installing the White Oak flooring planks.

Creating a matching stain for the solid White Oak stair treads took some experimenting. Dan’s Floor Store is experienced in match staining wood. Matching the look with stain is sometimes more challenging. Even though this was a hard wood flooring color to mimic, by mixing different ones, Dan was able to create a matching stain in about 10 minutes! We are very proud of the stain match!

For this project, we used Ribio Monocoat, a No VOC oil coating. The final combination of Bourbon, Dark Oak , Oyster, Ash Grey, and Stone Ribio Monocoat stain colors resulted in an impeccable visual match for the Oak stair treads to the newly installed White Oak flooring.

Our customer was absolutely, positively thrilled with his new FSC Certified White Oak floors and match stained staircase! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand, Stain and Finish Oak Staircase – Nocatee

One of the local realtors we had worked with previously referred their client to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303. (Referrals are always appreciated!) The client knew exactly what she wanted for her new home – gray stair treads with white risers.

Our client was just moving to this area, so we did all of our communication about this project via phone calls and photos. (Dan sent her photos of the job, as it was progressing, too.)

First we removed the old carpet from the stairway in her new home.

We sanded down the treads and both rails of the Oak staircase, to stain all of the pieces to the gray that our client wanted. Our crew applied quality Bona gray stain to get the look our client wanted for her staircase. We finished the stair treads and rails with durable Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish.

Our crew pre-stains and finishes treads prior to installing them to limit any stain getting on the skirt boards (side boards) and risers.

We aligned and installed the white risers on the stair frame.

Next our crew began installing the gray stained Oak stair treads and rails. We also painted the newel post white for our client.

Our new client was thrilled with the outcome after she arrived to her new home and saw her new staircase! And we always like to have happy clients!

Sand, Stain, Finish Red Oak Flooring in Matanzas Inlet

Homeowners in the Matanzas Inlet, Florida neighborhood contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to stain and refinish their Red Oak floors. They also wanted us to stain and refinish their stairway treads to match the new look of their floors.

Here are some photos of the way their Red Oak floors looked before we started.

Our crew started this project by sanding 1,500 square feet of Red Oak flooring to remove the old finish. We used our big Lagler-Hummel belt sander. for the main areas. Then our crew used edge sanders and hand scraped the edges of the wood flooring.

To get better visual results with the wood stain, we “popped” the grain of the wood flooring with a little water. Popping raises the grain of the wood to allow the stain to penetrate deeper in the wood than the stain would, if applied straight out of the can.

In order to get the look our clients wanted, our crew mixed three parts Provincial to one part Neutral/Natural Bona wood stains.

To finish this Red Oak flooring, we applied the applied two coats of durable Pallmann productsPall-X Clear Sealer and then Pall-X Power Finish. Then we buffed down these first two coats of polyurethane finish, and finished this job with a final coat of Pallmann Gold. The Pallmann Gold top coat is a non-ambering, clear, 2 part waterborne polyurethane finish.

We followed the same sequence – sanding, staining, and refinishing – on the stair treads. We achieved a nice matching look with the wood.

Our clients were very pleased with the outcome of this wood flooring and staircase stain and refinish project. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
