After a free on-site consultation and estimate, Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to install new engineered Red Oak flooring in a home in Atlantic Beach, and refinish an existing wood floor and stair treads.
The client wanted their new wood flooring installed on a portion of their home that has a suspended slab subfloor. The suspended slab of concrete was about 3/4 of an inch lower than the surface of the wood flooring that was existing in a different portion of their home. We took care of that 3/4 inch difference in height with a combination of floor leveling and the thickness of the new wood flooring planks.
Our wood flooring installation projects usually include the step of leveling the subfloor prior to installing new wood flooring. A leveled subfloor will prevent damage to the wood flooring.
- Unlevel floors can cause hard surface flooring to crack, reducing the life of the new flooring and requiring replacement of sections of the new flooring.
The client’s selection of a 5/8 of an inch engineered Shamrock Red Oak common number one wood flooring. This Red Oak flooring has a 5mm dry sawn face (wear layer) that adds longer life and maintains value.
Our client liked the concept of turning the new Red Oak wood flooring planks in the opposite direction to that of the existing wood planks, so that’s what we did. Diagonal placement and changing directions of the planks add layers of interest to the client’s wood floors.
After the new engineered Red Oak flooring installation was completed, our crew sanded the new wood flooring and the existing wood flooring.
Then our crew stained the wood flooring with Minwax Golden Oak stain.
We finished both of the client’s wood floors with three coats of Bona Mega Clear HD satin. Two header boards were installed during this flooring project. A photo of one of the installed header boards is included with other views of the finished Red Oak wood flooring installation.
Our crew also refinished our client’s stair treads as part of this project. We forgot to get photos of the finished treads when we went back to install thresholds, but they turned out very nice.
Needless to say the homeowner was happy with her new wood flooring and refreshed stair treads!
