Engineered Walnut Flooring Installation – San Pablo Creek Reserve

Custom home - San Pablo Creek ReserveThis flooring project involved installing 7 1/2″ wide, engineered Walnut plank flooring by LW Flooring in a new home under construction by one of our custom home builders.

The project home is located in the San Pablo Creek Reserve neighborhood in Southside Jacksonville.

As always, first and foremost, we did the floor leveling. Our crew leveled the concrete slab subfloor to prepare it for the wood flooring installation.

Leveling guarantees a strong bond to subfloor and a solid sounding floor versus a hollow floor sound!

Then we installed the 7 1/2″ wide engineered Walnut flooring using Bostik green force adhesive. Our crew used flooring straps when installing this Walnut flooring, because of the width of the flooring planks.

Our custom builder was very thrilled with the way these Walnut floors look! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers.

Installing Winter Oak plank flooring in Nocatee

Some Dan’s Floor Store flooring projects cover large areas of flooring in a home or business. Others may focus on one or two rooms, or a staircase or more. These homeowners, live in the Coastal Oaks community of Nocatee. They contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to replace the old carpeting in the second floor of their home with Oak wood flooring.

Our clients chose 7″ wide engineered Winter Oak plank flooring from the Vintage collection by Mohawk for this home improvement.

First we removed 1,600 square feet of old carpeting. In one of the photos, looking over the banister, you can see the Oak plank flooring on the first floor. The new Oak flooring will continue that look on the second floor.

Next we leveled the second floor plywood subfloor to prepare it for the Oak plank flooring installation, by sanding and hand scraping any high spots.

Our crew started installing the Winter Oak plank flooring from the top of the stairs, running the planks front to back like downstairs. We used flooring straps to hold the wide planks in place during installation.

The banister was much higher than the flooring. So, we milled down custom trim pieces to frame the base of the banister. Our crew also made custom trim for the bathroom doorways.

Such a beautiful area! Lots of wildlife! We saw a gator and two red tail hawks while we were there. Here are some photos from the back yard of the home.

Our clients told us they loved how their new Winter Oak plank floors look. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Oak Look Luxury Vinyl Plank Installation in Ponte Vedra Beach

These Ponte Vedra Beach homeowners wanted new flooring for their home, and called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate. They needed 1,700 square feet of flooring, and wanted the 22 steps and 3 landings in the home to match.

They selected 7″ wide Cortec Plus Oak Look Luxury Vinyl plank flooring for their new flooring.

Our crew began this project by ripping out the old carpet, wood flooring, tile, and baseboards.

Next we leveled the concrete slab subfloor to prepare it for the luxury vinyl plank installation.

We set up our on-site shop on the paver driveway.

Next our crew installed the Oak Look vinyl plank flooring. The game room for the pool table was a converted/enclosed patio that had been poured a little higher than the main subfloor in the home. We got creative with the flooring to get the rooms to line up for safety and visual appeal. Our crew finished this Luxury Vinyl plank flooring installation with new baseboards all around, and lots of custom trim work around the fireplace and exit doorways.

We continued the Oak look plank flooring for a matching look on the staircase landings and the treads and nosings. Painters came in and painted all risers on the stairway and baseboards after we finished the flooring installation.

These homeowners were very happy with their new Oak look Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring and staircase. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

FSC White Oak Flooring Install and Match Stain Stairs in Shearwater

After this homeowner had closed on his new home in the Shearwater community, near St. Augustine, Florida, he contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a flooring and stairway improvement project.

Our client wanted FSC certified White Oak flooring installed in his home in several rooms, in place of the carpeting, which had also been installed on the stairway. And he wanted Oak stair treads on his staircase, match stained for the same look as the new wood flooring. We can do that!

Contractor grade carpeting usually lasts several years and then begins to break down. When the carpeting breaks down, it retains more dirt and pollen, and little pieces of fiber from the carpet break off and go into the air in the home as lint. (And nobody needs more lint in their home!)

We began this project by removing 10,000 square feet of carpeting from the home, from spaces including 3 bedrooms, a loft living room, and the stairway and landing.

Our client had selected FSC certified, 7″ wide, oil finished White Oak flooring, Brushed Patina, Root by Tesoro. An FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

After leveling the subfloors, we applied Bostik’s Green Force zero VOC adhesive for installing the White Oak flooring planks.

Creating a matching stain for the solid White Oak stair treads took some experimenting. Dan’s Floor Store is experienced in match staining wood. Matching the look with stain is sometimes more challenging. Even though this was a hard wood flooring color to mimic, by mixing different ones, Dan was able to create a matching stain in about 10 minutes! We are very proud of the stain match!

For this project, we used Ribio Monocoat, a No VOC oil coating. The final combination of Bourbon, Dark Oak , Oyster, Ash Grey, and Stone Ribio Monocoat stain colors resulted in an impeccable visual match for the Oak stair treads to the newly installed White Oak flooring.

Our customer was absolutely, positively thrilled with his new FSC Certified White Oak floors and match stained staircase! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

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!

Engineered 5" wide White Oak flooringA homeowner in the Mandarin community of Jacksonville, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to remove the old wood flooring, then install 5″ wide White Oak flooring for him. We can do that!

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!
