Installing Solid Red Oak Wood Flooring – Avondale

Rift and quarter sawn Red Oak wood flooring installation - Avondale Clients wanted to improve the appearance and the value of their home with wood flooring. They picked rift and quarter sawn unfinished Red Oak wood flooring in 2 1/4 wide planks by Oak Crest Lumber.

In order to provide a good base for the new Red Oak wood flooring in this home, and as shared in an earlier article, we previously installed plywood subfloor in the kitchen and several other areas of their home.

The new rift and quarter sawn unfinished Red Oak wood flooring was installed in the kitchen (which was formerly tile) and in several bedrooms, and closets. This Red Oak flooring installation included over 12 different weave-in sections to allow the new wood flooring to run apparently seamlessly from one room to the next.

Our Dan’s Floor Store wood flooring work complies with NWFA standards to provide beautiful results and long lasting wood floors for our customers. As an example, when installing solid wood flooring like this one, it’s important to leave room for the wood to expand and contract. That’s why we install expansion joints (which you can see in some of the photos), using nickels between the boards every 10 feet.

Once the new Red Oak wood flooring has properly acclimated, we will sand all of the wood flooring in the home, and then refinish those floors. The sand and finish portion of this project will be shared in a future article on our Dan’s Floor Store website.

The client’s home has a nice view of the St. Johns River at sunset from the back yard of their home.
