Install, Sand and Finish Red Oak Flooring – Mandarin

Riverside Mandarin - client's homeClients whose home was damaged by Hurricane Irma (which came through Jacksonville, Florida in September 2017), called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to help restore their home.

This project started with us leveling the concrete slab subfloor (as we do for all wood flooring installation jobs). Our clients selected a 3″ wide, unfinished, engineered Red Oak flooring by Maxwell. This wood flooring product is made in the USA, and will harmonize with the existing 3″ wide Red Oak flooring on the upper floor. (Which our crew will sand and stain in a few weeks, to match the color wood flooring selected for the first floor wood.) We installed the Red Oak flooring using Bostik Pro Cure adhesive. To prepare the fireplace in the center of the room for the new wood flooring, our crew undercut the bottom edge with a jamb saw equipped with a diamond blade. We measured and cut each board to fit the bumpy contour of the central fireplace with a jig saw.

After completing the flooring installation, our crew began sanding the new flooring. Our client’s selection of an engineered wood flooring was a benefit to the time frame required for this project. This is because engineered wood does not require acclimation time after installation; we can begin sanding the flooring to prepare for staining and finishing immediately.

Next we “popped the grain” of the wood with water, to achieve a deep, beautiful color stain. Our crew applied Bona Jacobean stain.

We finished this Red Oak flooring with durable Pallmann products – 1 coat of Pallmann Clear Sealer, and 2 coats of Pallmann Power finish – satin.

Our customers told us that they were overjoyed to see their beautiful Red Oak floors. And Dan’s Floor Store always enjoys having happy clients! We will be back in a few weeks to sand, stain and finish the Red Oak flooring upstairs. So, “Stay tuned” for a follow-up article about our work in this home!
