Install, Screen and Coat Red Oak Flooring – Hampton Glen

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 got a call from homeowners in Hampton Glen, a subdivision next to Deerwood (off Baymeadows Road in Jacksonville). These prior clients wanted us to install some Red Oak flooring in their master bedroom, and screen and coat the Red Oak flooring we had previously sanded and finished for them.

Our crew removed 250 square feet of existing carpeting, then leveled the concrete slab floor using Bostik SL-150 Self Leveling underlayment. And then we installed the 2 1/4″ wide unfinished, plain sawn / slice cut, engineered Red Oak flooring by Maxwell (Townsend Additions line) using Bostik Pro Cure adhesive.

Our crew sanded the new Red Oak flooring, then finished it with one coat of Pallmann Pall-X Color, color sealer. We followed up with 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power finish water borne polyurethane, in ultra matte.

Screen and Coat is a good maintenance procedure to protect your wood floors. When we “screen and coat” wood flooring, we use a buffer and a mesh screen covered with an abrasive, instead of regular sand paper discs. Screening provides lighter abrasion to the floor finish, providing a good roughness that helps the new finish coat of polyurethane adhere properly. We recommend screening and coating wood floors that get normal use on a 5 year cycle, to restore the finish and protect the wood flooring. We screened and coated 1,200 square feet of the plain sawn / slice cut Red Oak flooring with Walnut inlays in this home. Our crew applied water based polyurethane finish; Pallmann’s Pall-X Power finish water borne polyurethane.

Our customers loved the job we did on their Red Oak floors, and even wrote us a very nice Review. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand, Stain and Finish White Oak Flooring – North Vilano Beach

For this home improvement project, our Dan’s Floor Store crew was called to a home in North Vilano Beach. The homeowners wanted their wire brushed 5″ White Oak flooring stained to match the look of their wooden stairs treads. We can do that!

After closing off the portion of the home where we would be working on their floors with ZipWall Dust Barrier System, we sanded and hand edged the White Oak flooring down to bare wood.

Our crew applied a light spray of water to “pop” the White Oak wood grain. Then we selected and applied a 50/50 combination of Bona stains; Bark and Red Mahogany to achieve the matching look on the floors.

We finished the match stained wood floors with Pallmann Pall-X Color, color sealer, followed by 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power Finish, satin water borne polyurethane.

Our customers were very happy to see their color matched White Oak wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand and Finish Heart Pine Flooring Repair – St. Augustine, FL

The owner of a home on the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine had some water damage to the Heart Pine flooring in his kitchen and living room areas.

The homeowner replaced the damaged Heart Pine wood flooring himself. And then he was referred (by one of our prior clients) to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and finish his wood floors.

Our crew sanded the old flooring and new flooring together. To begin, we had to make several angle cuts with rough sandpaper, due to the tough old finish on the wood floors. Next our crew sanded the floors with fine sand paper, buffed the floors, and then hand scraped all the corners.

We sealed the floor with Bona DriFast Sealer. Our crew buffed the floors between the first and second coats of Sealer.

Then we finished the Heart Pine flooring with 2 coats of Bona Woodline satin oil-modified polyurethane.

Our client was very happy with the results we achieved for his Heart Pine floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Tile Bathroom Remodel in Queen’s Harbor

Finished remodeled bathroomA plumbing leak inside the shower walls brought about this bathroom remodeling project in a home in Queen’s Harbor Yacht and Country Club. The homeowners called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate, to work with their insurance company. We got the contract to do the tile, and stone and glass work to remodel the water damaged bathroom.

First our crew “demo’d” (ripped out) the water damaged bathroom wall board. After the plumbing was fixed, we hung new cement backer boards. Cement backer boards are resistant to mold growth and damage from moisture, making them great tile underlayment for wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens. And then our crew applied waterproofing to the walls (the pink and yellow areas on the bare HardieBacker in some of the photos).

Our clients selected and provided the porcelain tile, and stone and glass for the mosaic for this project. (Dan’s Floor Store sells and can supply the tile, stone and glass for projects, too.) We started setting the 24″ by 24″ porcelain tile on the shower walls with the help of temporary horizontal boards. (These temporary boards hold the tiles in position until the adhesive set up.) Our crew added two “racing stripes” in glass and stone mosaic, with pencil stone borders. We also added glass and stone details in two wall inserts (handy for soap, shampoo bottles, etc.).

Then we mudset the 24″ by 24″ porcelain floor tiles, adding an elaborate basket weave-type inlay of stone. Our crew centered the stone inlay to the tub.

Our clients were very impressed with how nice their remodeled bathroom looks now, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

American Walnut Flooring Installation and New Steps – Plantation Country Club

American Walnut flooring installedPlantation Country Club homeowners called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install American Walnut wood flooring in their home. This project included replacing the marble flooring in the foyer of their home with the new wood flooring. The homeowners also wanted to change the shape of the steps from the foyer into the main floor of the home.

First our crew removed the marble flooring in the foyer. (Unfortunately, we didn’t get photos of this segment of the project.) Next, we re-framed the whole foyer, making the steps longer across the foyer (instead of the trapezoidal shaped steps which had been there). Now the foyer is symmetrical and the steps are wider. The wider steps provide easier access to the home living area.

The concrete slab floor required a massive amount of leveling! Leveling creates a level surface for the wood flooring to be installed. For this project, leveling also makes the surface of the wood flooring flush with the existing marble flooring in the home, without requiring transition moldings.

Our clients chose 7 1/2″ wide, duChateau engineered American Walnut flooring, from the Vernal collection. We used Bostik’s ProCure adhesive to install the American Walnut flooring in this home.

For us, the step work /re-framing really sets this job off. Our clients said they were simply blown away with our work and how lovely this project area looks now. They told us that the re-shaped foyer and steps are a welcome improvement to their home. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Aged and Smoked French Oak Flooring Installation – Ocala National Forest

This project was for a repeat client. We had previously installed flooring in his home on the river, in Saint Johns County

Preview - Lake front project home in Ocala National Forest.Our client had built a home in Ocala National Forest; a lake house right on Lake DeLancey! He called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install wood flooring in his new home.

First, our crew leveled 1,800 square foot of the concrete slab with Bostik SL-150 self-leveling underlayment, to prepare it for wood flooring installation.

The flooring chosen for this project was engineered, aged and smoked French Oak, Bela Cera flooring of the Villa Borghese collection, Olimpia color. Each 8 inch wide by 72 inch long plank has a wire brushed surface with slightly distressed edges and ends.

Our crew installed this aged and smoked French Oak flooring with Bostik Green Force adhesive and moisture control membrane , for long term durability and moisture protection.

Our client was very happy with the look that this aged and smoked French Oak flooring gave to his lake front home, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Engineered Hickory Hardwood Flooring Installation near St. Augustine

Dan's Floor Store showroom, Ponte Vedra, FloridaAfter a flood in the kitchen ruined their wood flooring, these homeowners called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate.

This wood flooring home improvement project took place in a home in Elkton Florida, just west of Saint Augustine, and off of County Road 207.

As part of the job, we were asked to remove the existing, water damaged wood flooring.

The whole 1,120 sq ft of existing wood flooring was removed by our crew in one day,

The next day we leveled the concrete slab.

And the next day, our crew started installing our clients’ new wood flooring.

 

Our clients had chosen an engineered Hickory hardwood flooring from the Villa Bocelli collection by Bella Cera in the Storico color.

This hardwood flooring comes in random widths and lengths, with a lot of variation in color and shade. Also this flooring is very unique with the saw marks against the grain of the wood. The semi-rough texture will help reduce visiblity of scratches.

We used Bostik’s Pro Cure adhesive to install this engineered Hickory hardwood flooring.

Instead of a t-mold at the tile, our crew used a header board, at our customer’s request.

All in all, our customers were very happy. They even wrote us a very nice Review. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy customers!

Solid Red Oak Flooring Weave In and Install – Neptune Beach, FL

Stained and finished Red Oak flooringThis Dan’s Floor Store project took place in Neptune Beach, Florida. We needed to weave into existing Red Oak wood flooring and continue installing this Red Oak flooring throughout a room addition to a home. Our client also wanted their flooring to be stained darker.

The existing wood flooring in the home was 2 1/4″ wide solid Red Oak by Armstrong – Bruce Natural Choice in Gunstock. Fortunately, this solid wood flooring product was still active, so we could use the same exact wood flooring for our project. This helped our crew make the several areas where we needed to weave in repair turn out flawless!

We leveled the concrete slab subfloor before we could start the weave in or installing the Red Oak flooring in the room addition.

The room addition slab needed a massive amount of leveler applied because it fell off towards the back end of the room by nearly an inch!

 

 

After our crew leveled the subfloor in the room addition, we used Bostik MVP to seal the concrete.

The slab for the room addition wasn’t 100% cured even though it had been poured four months prior to our arrival. After applying the MVP we used Bostik GREENFORCE adhesive. GREENFORCE is a no VOC moisture abatement adhesive. This gives us a double moisture barrier to ascertain no moisture will be wicking up into the new wood flooring we are installing.

Next came the Red Oak flooring installation.

Once the wood flooring installation was complete our crew started sanding the floor back down to bare wood so we could stain it.

We need to angle cut the floor when sanding to get a flat flooring surface. To ensure NO sanding marks on the floor when refinishing, our crew takes wood flooring through all of our sanding processes: edging, big machine work (our Lagler Hummel belt sander), hand scraping, palm sanding and buffing! Then we used our pump sprayer to “pop” the grain of the wood flooring, to create a deeper, darker color with the stain. To get the look our client wanted, our crew applied a combination of Bona stains, Cocoa and Bark, at a ratio of 60% Bark to 40% Cocoa. The majority of the stain was buffed in with our buffer and a conditioning pad.

The next day we topped the floor off with two coats of a super durable waterborne polyurethane.

The first coat was a sealer coat; we used Pall-X Color by Pallmann. Then our crew stacked a coat of Pall-X Power Ultra Matte by Pallmann over the top of sealer (Pall-X Color).

 

 

Our customer was 100% thrilled with the outcome of this project! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

FSC Certified Hickory Flooring Install – Palencia Country Club

FSC Certified Hickory flooring - installedOur clients selected a FSC certified Hickory flooring by Tesoro woods for their home in the Palencia Golf and Country Club community in St. Augustine.

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification is the hardest approval stamp to achieve for wood flooring. The FSC certification “ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits”.

The concrete slab subfloor of the home required a lot of leveling prior to installing the Hickory wood floor. Our crew began work by leveling the slab with Bostik SL – 150, Self Leveling Underlayment.

The FSC certified Hickory flooring has an incredible color – “Vintage Gatehouse – Desert”, which is slightly grey with natural undertones. We installed the flooring with Bostik ProCure Urethane adhesive.

 

 

Our clients were very pleased with their FSC certified Hickory flooring selection; the job turned out very nice. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Engineered French Oak Flooring & Treads – Plantation Golf & Country Club PVB

Front view of the project home - Engineered French Oak flooring and stair tread installationDan’s Floor Store was contracted to install engineered French Oak flooring and stair treads in a new construction home in the Plantation Golf & Country Club community of Ponte Vedra Beach.
Boy, from this photo (taken when we went back for more photos) this is becoming such a beautiful home!

Our client selected 8″ wide, engineered French Oak flooring, from Bella Cera’s Villa Borghese collection.

We began by leveling the concrete slab subfloor on the first level. We had to use a large amount of floor leveler to get the concrete slab ready for our wood flooring. Upstairs, our crew went from room to room, sanding all of the plywood subfloor seams to achieve a level surface.

Then we installed 4,000 square feet of the hardwood French Oak flooring. We used flooring straps when installing this French Oak wood flooring, because of the width of the flooring planks.

Our crew also did the staircase, including two landings and 21 treads in the same French Oak flooring, using nosing and flooring for the stair treads. In all, this project took several weeks to complete

The new flooring and stair treads were covered for protection while the rest of the construction work finished.

We returned to the home several weeks later, when the construction work was completed, and our new flooring and stair treads were unveiled. Everything looked great, so we got some more photos of this wood flooring and stairs project.

 

 

Our client was very pleased with our work, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
