Sand, Stain and Finish Oak Staircase – Nocatee

One of the local realtors we had worked with previously referred their client to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303. (Referrals are always appreciated!) The client knew exactly what she wanted for her new home – gray stair treads with white risers.

Our client was just moving to this area, so we did all of our communication about this project via phone calls and photos. (Dan sent her photos of the job, as it was progressing, too.)

First we removed the old carpet from the stairway in her new home.

We sanded down the treads and both rails of the Oak staircase, to stain all of the pieces to the gray that our client wanted. Our crew applied quality Bona gray stain to get the look our client wanted for her staircase. We finished the stair treads and rails with durable Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish.

Our crew pre-stains and finishes treads prior to installing them to limit any stain getting on the skirt boards (side boards)and risers.

We aligned and installed the white risers on the stair frame.

Next our crew began installing the gray stained Oak stair treads and rails. We also painted the newel post white for our client.

Our new client was thrilled with the outcome after she arrived to her new home and saw her new staircase! And we always like to have happy clients!

The old wood flooring.

Our client selected engineered, 5″ wide White Oak flooring, from the Diamonds Forever collection by UA Floors.

First our crew removed the old wooden flooring.

Then we did a massive amount of leveling on the concrete slab subfloor, to properly prepare it for the new 5″ wide White Oak flooring.

Time to install the new wood flooring! We installed all of the 5″ wide White Oak flooring running front to back in the home. This was the opposite direction that the wood flooring had been installed prior. We used Bostik Green Force adhesive for this job.

Before we started this job, our crew moved all of the client’s furniture out, and then replaced it after. And we installed all new shoe molding with the new White Oak flooring. Needless to say, our customer was thrilled with his new White Oak floors, and he also gave us a great Google review!

Refinishing Red Oak Flooring – Jacksonville, FL Northside

Stained and finished 1 1/2" wide Red Oak flooringDan’s Floor Store was contracted to refinish existing Red Oak flooring in a home in Northside Jacksonville.

The scope of this refinishing project included sanding, staining and finishing the wood floors.

The Red Oak flooring in this home was 1 1/2″ wide strips; more rare than the 2 1/4″ wide Red Oak flooring we usually see. Dan loves the look of this narrow wood strip flooring.

First our crew thoroughly sanded the floors and hand scraped the edges.

Then we stained the wood floor with Minwax Gunstock Wood Finish stain.

Our crew finished these Red Oak floors with three coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power semi-gloss finish.

Our customers were thrilled with the outcome. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Brazilian Cherry Staircase Installation – Julington Creek

Brazilian Cherry stair treads with white risersDan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was called out to install a staircase, with white risers and Brazilian Cherry stair treads, by homeowners in the gated community of Julington Creek.

Dan’s Floor Store is experienced in stain matching wood flooring and stairs to existing wood or to create a look that our customer wants to see in their home or business. And these clients wanted Brazilian Cherry stair treads, match stained to the color of their existing wood flooring. We can do that!

We created a match stain for the treads with a 50-50 ratio of Natural and Red mahogany stains by Bona. Our crew pre-finishes the stair treads before installation, so we only stain the treads. Much more efficient!

After staining the Brazilian Cherry stair treads, we finished them with three coats of Pallmann Power Semi-gloss, to mimic the semi-gloss finish on the wood flooring. Then we installed the new risers and the match stained Brazilian Cherry treads.

Almost needless to say, after seeing their new Brazilian Cherry staircase, our customers were very happy with the outcome! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Engineered White Oak Hardwood Flooring Installation – Hammock Beach FL

Engineered White Oak flooring - installedAs part of a new home construction project, Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted to install 1,600 square feet of engineered White Oak hardwood flooring. And this flooring was also installed on the stair frame, to create a matching staircase. The home is located in the northern part Hammock Beach, Florida.

The homeowners chose 7 1/2″ wide by 5/8″ thick White Oak flooring in random lengths. This flooring is made by Sawgrass Hills, in the color named Malaga. Our crew did quite a bit of a leveling of the concrete slab subfloor, as in all jobs. We prepare the substrate so that the flooring which we install lays level across it. A leveled subfloor means there will be no hollow spots under your new flooring. Next our crew installed the White Oak flooring using Bostik Green Force Adhesive and Moisture Control Membrane.

We covered the stair frame with the same White Oak flooring and stair nosing, for a matching look. The stair treads that our crew made feature mitered returns for a nice, finished look.

Needless to say the clients and our builder we did the job for were ecstatic with the outcome. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Sand, Paint, Finish Wooden Floors – South St. Augustine Beach

Some of the flooring improvement jobs Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 accomplishes in local homes and businesses are part of larger scale renovation projects, working with local contractors.

This remodeling project took place in a home on Atlantic View in South St. Augustine Beach, Florida. The builder envisioned extending the wood flooring with our crew doing a lot of weave-in work, to create a continuous, solid wood floor. And then paint the wooden floors white.

After doing the weave-in wood flooring extension, we sanded the wood floors and hand scraped the edges.

As part of this job, our crew milled our own transition strips out of the solid wood.

After sanding these floors, we applied two coats of Benjamin Moore white paint designed for floors.

The next day, we applied the applied two coats of Pallmann waterborne polyurethane finish – Pall-X Clear Sealer – and then Pall-X Power Finish. Then our crew buffed down these first two coats of polyurethane finish, and finished this job with a final coat of Pallmann Gold. Pallmann Gold is a non-ambering, clear, 2 part waterborne polyurethane finish.

The contractor and his clients told us the look that we achieved with these white pained wooden floors was just what they wanted! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Sand, Stain, Finish Red Oak Flooring in Matanzas Inlet

Homeowners in the Matanzas Inlet, Florida neighborhood contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to stain and refinish their Red Oak floors. They also wanted us to stain and refinish their stairway treads to match the new look of their floors.

Here are some photos of the way their Red Oak floors looked before we started.

Our crew started this project by sanding 1,500 square feet of Red Oak flooring to remove the old finish. We used our big Lagler-Hummel belt sander. for the main areas. Then our crew used edge sanders and hand scraped the edges of the wood flooring.

To get better visual results with the wood stain, we “popped” the grain of the wood flooring with a little water. Popping raises the grain of the wood to allow the stain to penetrate deeper in the wood than the stain would, if applied straight out of the can.

In order to get the look our clients wanted, our crew mixed three parts Provincial to one part Neutral/Natural Bona wood stains.

To finish this Red Oak flooring, we applied the applied two coats of Pallmann finish – Pall-X Clear Sealer and then Pall-X Power Finish. Then we buffed down these first two coats of polyurethane finish, and finished this job with a final coat of Pallmann Gold. The Pallmann Gold top coat is a non-ambering, clear, 2 part waterborne polyurethane finish.

We followed the same sequence – sanding, staining, and refinishing – on the stair treads. We achieved a nice matching look with the wood.

Our clients were very pleased with the outcome of this wood flooring and staircase stain and refinish project. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Heart Pine Plank Flooring – Sand and Finish – Springfield

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 does flooring projects for residential and commercial clients, and for local building and renovation contractors. This is about the 10th job we have done for this client. It’s always nice when a prior client appreciates your work, and calls you with a new job!

This flooring project took place in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, in the historic Springfield neighborhood.

The home was built in the 1930s, and has existing Heart Pine plank flooring. Our client contracted us to sand and finish these old wooden floors.

Pre-Refinishing.

Our crew sanded the Heart Pine plank flooring, and hand scraped the edges.

Sanding.

Next we applied 1 coat of Bona dri-fast Sealer.

And then we finished these old Heart Pine floors with 2 coats of Bona Woodline satin oil-modified polyurethane.

Between application of the Bona finish coats, we screened these Heart Pine floors for proper bonding and to give the smoothest possible results.

When we screen 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.

Refinishing.

After seeing their refinished Heart Pine plank flooring, our customer was very happy! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Luxury Vinyl Plank Stairway and Flooring Installation in Nocatee

Luxury vinyl plank flooring - installedWhen they were ready for a flooring improvement project in their home, some Nocatee residents contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install Luxury Vinyl Plank on their stairway and on the second floor of their home.

Our clients chose 7″ wide Luxury Vinyl Plank by Palmetto Road Flooring in the color “Good Earth”, from the Tidewater collection.

This job was all upstairs work and stairs. Our crew started by sanding the seams of the plywood subfloor. It appeared that the plywood had swollen at the seams in the sheets of plywood, possibly from rain before the roof was installed on the home.

This first step is just one of things we do to make a quality flooring installation for happy clients. We don’t just go into a new job site and start laying down the new flooring. Our crew starts by prepping the subfloor. And for this job, it meant sanding all the raised plywood subfloor seams so the Luxury Vinyl flooring planks would lay flat and evenly over the subfloor. This step is very important for good results with Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring. Luxury Vinyl Plank is not made to absorb irregularities in the subflooring surface.

Sanding.

Installing Flooring.

On the staircase, our crew installed the Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, nosing, and white risers, to give the staircase a nice, timeless look. White risers against the dark wood tone looks beautiful! It also helps differentiate the steps for safer use. This helps with easier visibility and depth perception for people who use the steps.

Stairs.

Our crew finished out the job by installing white shoe molding around the edges of the new Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, where the existing baseboards were.

Finished.

Needless to say our customers were thrilled with the outcome. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring Installation – St. Augustine, FL

installed Luxury Vinyl Plank flooringA St. Augustine, Florida homeowner contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install some Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring over tile flooring in her home. (An interesting side Note: this project home is located really close to the Alligator Farm Zoological Park.)

Our client chose Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring from the LW Flooring Riverstone Collection, in the Citrine Oasis color.

Our crew started this job by grinding down the high spots on the existing floor tiles with our diamond grinder. This grinder also has a vacuum attachment on the skirt, to trap all of the grinding dust.

  • Grinding the surface of the existing tile flooring flat is one step that most others do not do when installing vinyl plank flooring over top of tile.
  • At Dan’s Floor Store, we do not cut corners. Preparation is a key to achieving a quality, durable Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring installation.

Prior to installing the Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, our crew removed the existing baseboards. Then after installing all of the vinyl plank flooring, we installed new block style baseboards, and new shoe molding.
