Natural Look for Red Oak Floors in St. Augustine

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted to sand and finish the Red Oak floors in a home in the Pelican Reef community of St. Augustine. The neighborhood is located right on the marsh, very close to the St. Augustine Amplitheater.

Our clients wanted a more natural look for their wood floors.

We began by sanding and hand scraping the edges of their Red Oak flooring to the bare wood.

To achieve a bare wood/naked wood/natural wood look for our clients, our crew first applied Pallmann Natureseal to their wood floors.

Next we applied 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Pure. This Pall-X Pure provides a surface that doesn’t shine or reflect highlights, with small amounts of white pigment to keep the wood species pure in appearance, without yellowing.

Needless to say, our clients told us they were thrilled with the new look of their Red Oak floors! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Dan’s Floor Store repairs and refinishes existing wood flooring, refinishes wooden staircases, and sells and installs new wood floors (engineered wood, solid wood, or laminate), as well as vinyl and luxury vinyl plank floors for residential and commercial clients, to improve the looks and value of the property. Give us a call 904.887.8303 to make an appointment for a free consultation and estimate.

And if your next improvement project involves tile or stone work, don’t forget that we professionally install those materials too.

Acacia Wood Flooring Installation in Historic Riverside

This flooring project was subcontracted to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 by a local residential renovation contractor.

Solid Acacia wood flooring - installed.We were contracted to install 3/4″ thick, 4 3/4″ wide, random length, hand scraped solid Acacia wood flooring, color Golden Topaz, by Timber Harvest flooring over multiple layers of flooring that was over 100 years old.

  • The builder provided this solid Acacia flooring.
  • This home is located in the historic Riverside area of Jacksonville, Florida.

The old subflooring was bowed and wavy in various areas. Our crew used Bostik Grip-N-Shield adhesive for this project.

  • Some areas required adhesive and wood shimming. In order to get the maximum contact and ensure a solid bond between the new wood flooring and the wavy and bowed wooden subfloor, we also placed boxes of wood flooring on top of the freshly laid Acacia planks.
  • Our crew started the job off the fireplace. For visual appeal and longer runs, we laid the Acacia planks front to back, as you walk in the front door.
  • Our crew did quite a few precision cuts during this solid Acacia wood flooring installation, such as around the cable through the floor, at the oversized white threshold plate at a bedroom door, and for multiple ventilation duct registers.

Our contractor and their clients were very pleased with our solid Acacia wood flooring installation work. No more bowed and wavy flooring in this home! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Installing Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring in St. Johns Country Club

Homeowners in the St. Johns Country Club neighborhood wanted to do a flooring improvement project. They contacted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a Free Consultation and estimate.

Our clients chose 7″ wide Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring in the “Path Breeze” color by Beauflor.

After moving their furniture and removing the old flooring, we leveled the concrete slab subfloor. This was a very un-level floor. It took 12 bags of Bostik SL150 Leveler mix to finish 1,200 square feet of floor subfloor. A level subfloor is an important step to achieve a quality flooring installation.

Our crew installed the LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) flooring, orienting the planks to run from the entrance at the front of the home towards the back, creating a visually appealing long run.

We finished this Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring installation with moldings at 3 carpet tucks, and several areas where the LVP met with tiled floors.

Our clients told us they were so happy to see how nice their home looked with the Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring installed that they had chosen. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Installing Hickory Hardwood Flooring in Palencia

When the owners of a home in the Palencia community in St. Augustine, Florida were ready for a new look for their floors, they called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303.

Stony Brook Hickory hardwood flooring.These homeowners wanted to replace the laminate flooring in most of the rooms of their home. They decided on hand scraped, wire brushed, 7 1/2″ wide engineered Hickory hardwood flooring, called Stony Brook by Naturally Aged, from their Medallion collection for their new wood flooring. This wood flooring comes in random lengths, which makes their floors more visually appealing.

As we started removing the old laminate flooring, we were surprised to find that the laminate had been installed with pressure sensitive glue! (That’s not a recommended, durable adhesive for flooring.) Once the old laminate flooring and the sticky glue were removed, we leveled the concrete slab subfloor of the rooms in the home that were to get the new flooring.

Our clients decided to extend the Hickory hardwood flooring into the bathroom, so we removed the pedestal sink and toilet and prepared that subfloor, too.

We “picture framed” the hearth for the fireplace in the den, and cut a 5′ by 3′ slab of porcelain tile to fit. It made a nice focal point for the room; a nice touch.

Our crew made header boards for the doorways to the bathroom and the master bedroom, so no t-molding. We installed the Hickory hardwood flooring through the rest of the rooms, using durable Bostik Greenforce adhesive.

Our customers told us that they really like how nice their new Hickory floors look, and the porcelain fireplace hearth. Dan’s Floor Store always enjoys having happy clients.

Sand and Finish Oak Flooring in St. Augustine Beach

View out the window - St. Augustine Beach.This job took place in St. Augustine Beach. The homeowners were moving here from Pittsburgh and Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was able to squeeze this job into our busy schedule for some new Floridians.

Their floors are number 1 Red Oak with number 2 White Oak flooring planks peppered in here and there. We have also seen this mixture of Red and White Oak planks in flooring in some other homes built in the 1950s.

Our clients wanted a bare/naked wood look for their floors. Pallmann has a product that helped us achieve that look, so our clients asked us to refinish their Oak stair treads to match their Oak floors.

Here are some photos of the Oak floors and stairway, before our crew started work.

We sanded the old, oil modified polyurethane finish off, and hand scraped the edges of the Oak floors and stair treads.

Our crew coated these Oak floors and stair treads with Pallmann Natureseal and Pallmann Pure; companion sealer and finish for giving the bare/naked wood look to the flooring. The result it the look of a freshly sanded Oak floor, but the floor has 3 coats of protection.

This Pallmann finish combination is amazing – the dry look is so clear, more dull than an ultra matte, and it is in trend with the vibe of this St. Augustine Beach house!

Refinish and Whitewash Heart Pine Floors in St. Augustine

This job took place in a home in the historic Lincolnville neighborhood of St. Augustine, Florida. Our clients contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303, wanting their Heart Pine wood floors refinished with a cool, whitewashed look.

We began this flooring improvement project by sanding and hand scraping the edges of the Heart Pine wood floors. This step removes the old finish and prepares the wood floors for the whitening sealer.

Our crew applied durable Pallmann products. We started with Pallmann Pall-X Whiteseal to achieve the whitewashed look our clients wanted.

Our crew applied two coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power. When that finish had fully cured, we buffed the wood floors down, and applied a final coat – Pallmann Pall-X Gold Ultra Matte.

New homeowners in a retirement community in Nocatee, Florida contacted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for their flooring improvement project.

Their house was a brand new build, but our clients did not like the flooring choices from their builder. They opted for us to start replacing flooring right after closing!

First we removed all of the carpet and tile flooring from the home.

Then we leveled the concrete slab subfloor. A level subfloor is very important to achieve a quality flooring installation, and helps the flooring last longer, too!

Solid White Oak Flooring Installation in Historic St. Augustine

"She Shed" exteriorHomeowners in historic St. Augustine, near Riberia Street, contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install wood flooring in their recently constructed 2 story structure behind their home.

We called this our “She Shed” project, going with popular definition of a private place in or near a home where a lady can relax, and do what ever she pleases.

Our clients chose quartersawn solid White Oak by Heritage Forest Products for the main flooring, with a border of solid Southern Black Cherry from Goodwin Heart Pine.

Our work started before the stairs to the loft were installed. We used a ladder to get up to the second level, and to help us get the wood flooring up there, too.

With the subfloors leveled, we installed the Southern Black Cherry wood border.

Our crew installed the quartersawn solid White Oak flooring.

After the wood flooring and border installation was complete, we allowed the wood several months time for acclamation. Then our crew sanded and hand scraped the edges of the wood flooring and borders.

And finally our crew applied 3 coats of durable Bona oil modified polyurethane satin finish.

Our clients shared that they were very happy with how nice their new wood floors look. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.
