New Hardwood Floors and Refinishing in Epping Forest

Dan’s Floor Store was invited to help a couple improve the hardwood floors of their home in the Epping Forest neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida.

Part of the project was to install 900 square feet of new, unfinished solid Red Oak select hardwood flooring from Shamrock Plank Flooring (2 1/4″ x 3/4″), which then had to be sanded, stained, and finished (with three coats of polyurethane for a beautiful, durable protective finish). For best results, we allowed the newly installed wood flooring to acclimate for about a month and a half before sanding, staining, and finishing it.

There was also also a set of stairs and 2300 square feet of existing hardwood floors downstairs that needed to be refinished – sanded (“screened”) and then coated with one coat of Bona Traffic Satin polyurethane finish.

As part of this project, to get the effect the clients wanted, we needed to use the refinishing technique of “popping” the grain of the wood with water prior to applying the stain. Then we applied a stain color of antique brown, which resulted in a perfect color match to downstairs wood!

Here are some close up of the edge work on these elegant, solid Red Oak hardwood floors.
