Installed European Oak hardwood flooring - featured.

Installing 7 1/2 wide European Oak flooring in Fernandina Beach

One of our home building contractor associates subcontracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install hardwood flooring in a home they were building in Fernandina Beach, on Amelia Island. A 7 1/2″ wide wire-brushed European Oak hardwood flooring by Reward flooring was selected for this project.

Our crew starts each installation project by leveling the subfloor. A leveled subfloor is important for a quality flooring installation. And while leveling, we took a peek out one of the back windows of the home.

After the subfloors were leveled, we began installation of the European Oak hardwood flooring. The flooring was installed in two different directions, giving the floors a more interesting appearance. Blue tape, used to hold the flooring in place until the adhesive sets, can be seen in some of the photos.

This contractor client told us he really liked the looks of this Oak flooring installation. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Installed White Oak flooring.

Tile and White Oak Flooring Install – Springfield

Our Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was selected for a wood flooring and tile flooring improvement project in the Springfield neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida.

– A view of the neighborhood.

We began by roughing up the stained concrete slab floor with a floor grinder. Then our crew leveled the concrete slab (which we would use as the subfloor for our Oak hardwood flooring and our tile installations). A level subfloor is very important to achieving a quality flooring installation.

– Concrete slab preparation.

Subsequently we began flooring installation. For this job, it was 5″ wide engineered White Oak hardwood flooring for most of the house, with 17″ x 17″ tile in the kitchen, and 8″ x 8″ decorative tile in the bathroom.

– Installation.

Our client told us they were particularly happy with our craftsmanship and their new flooring. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Wire brushed White Oak flooring after refinishing.

Sand and Finish White Oak Floors in TPC Sawgrass

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted by new owners to sand and refinish a wire brushed White Oak floor in a home adjacent to TPC Sawgrass Valley course hole number 3.

This just happens to be the Oak flooring we had installed in this home 10 years prior. We found the Oak flooring had corralled a lot of dirt in the soft grain of the wood over the years, due to dogs being in and out of their yard.

– Wire brushed White Oak floors before.

We sanded the floors with our big Lagler-Hummel belt sander, and hand sanded and scraped the edges of the White Oak floors.

– Sanding.

Then our Dan’s Floor Store team finished these wire brushed White Oak floors with durable Pallmann finish.

– Recoating.

Our clients (these new homeowners) were thrilled to see their wire brushed White Oak floors revitalized to a brand new state! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Installed French Oak flooring.

Install French Oak Hardwood Flooring in Palencia

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 does flooring, tile, and stone work for Residential and Commercial clients.

A local building contractor friend recently contracted Dan and his team to install 9.4″ wide engineered French Oak hardwood flooring from the Asheville collection by Palmetto Road in a new construction home in the Palencia community in St. Augustine, Florida. This home has over 3,000 square feet of floor space downstairs, and 1,300 square feet of flooring upstairs. This new house has large open rooms (and closets) and plenty of big windows, from which to enjoy views of the surrounding area.

– Exterior of new house.

Our flooring installation practice begins with leveling the subfloors. We leveled the concrete slab subfloor downstairs. And our crew sanded and hand scraped the edges of the sheet plywood subfloor upstairs. A quality flooring installation requires a leveled subfloor.

– Leveling.

We began engineered French Oak flooring installation at the back doors of the new house. Our crew laid flooring side to side as you entered the front door of the house. The hallway was over 80 feet long, and included a lot of doorways and door casings (to tuck the flooring under).

As can be seen in several photos, the fireplace provided opportunities for our crew to display our skill at tight flooring fitting. Our motto is “Measure twice, cut once.”

– Installing.

Our builder friend told us that he was very pleased with our French Oak flooring installation in the new house. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Heart Pine flooring - featured.

Repair and Refinish Heart Pine Flooring – Black Hammock Island

Repeat customers called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to repair and refinish the old Heart Pine flooring in a farmhouse on Black Hammock Island, on the Northside of Jacksonville, Florida.

We have been working with these homeowners for quite some time at another of their properties. They sold that property and moved onto a farmhouse on Black Hammock Island. Their new property includes plenty of land for their chickens, mules, horses, and other animals. This property offers a scenic location; situated along side of and overlooking the Amelia River.

Homesite property.

The farmhouse was built with logs harvested from the property. And the flooring in the home was milled from some of those Heart Pine trees, too. Flooring in the photos is New Growth Heart Pine. Our crew had to replace several Heart Pine planks in the floor that had been damaged. We had some New Growth Heart Pine flooring that was congruent to the existing Pine flooring. Our team changed out the damaged boards and then sanded down the floor with our Lagler-Hummel belt sander, and hand scraped the edges.

Sanding and Hand Scraping the floors.

Next we applied a Bona oil modified sealer as the first coat, to keep as close as we could to the previous look. (Sanding did remove some ambering and patina of the old Heart Pine flooring, so the new finish would result in a slightly lighter look.) After buffing down the first coat of oil modified Sealer, we then applied two coats of Pallmann Gold satin for a hardener filled topcoat.

Applying new Finish.

The Heart Pine floors in this farmhouse get a lot of wear. Dan’s Floor Store has these farmhouse homeowners on a flooring maintenance schedule. We will be back to refresh these floors within three years. It’s important to refinish this species of flooring every 3 to 5 years. This regular maintenance routine prevents dirt from getting ground into the soft grain of the wood.

Unfortunately, our Dan’s Floor Store crew didn’t get photos of the fully refinished floors. But, you can get an idea from the finishing photos, and, needless to say, our customers were thrilled with the outcome! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Installed Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring - featured.

9″ wide LVP Flooring Install – St Augustine

One of our homebuilder friends contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to do the flooring part of their new home project. They selected 9″ wide LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) flooring for the floors and stairs, in the color Luray Caverns, by LW Flooring. This LVP comes in varied lengths, which makes the installation and the look of the installed flooring more interesting.

Our crew began by leveling the subfloors. We leveled the concrete slab subfloor downstairs. We also sanded the edges of the plywood sheet subfloor upstairs to create a leveled surface for the LVP flooring. Dan’s Floor Store has found that leveling the surface of the subfloor prior to installing new flooring gives better results and happier clients.

Leveling.

Next came the installation of the Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring on the upstairs and downstairs floors, and the stairway. We found and installed matching nosing for the stair treads.

Our homebuilder client said he was very pleased with the finished LVP floors and stairway. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Recoated Oak flooring - featured.

Sand and Recoat Oak Flooring in Vilano Beach

Our clients (homeowners in Vilano Beach, Florida) contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and refinish the mixed Oak flooring in their home.

These wood floors were a combination of White Oak sprinkled in with some Red Oak, and White Oak stairs with with a medallion on the landing of the stairway.

Dan recognized the flooring as reclaimed old barn wood by Carlisle, in varied widths and lengths.

– Before.

– Sanding.

We sanded the main surfaces of the floors with our big Lagler-Hummel belt sander, and hand sanded the edges.

After sanding the Oak floors, landing, and stairway, these surfaces were recoated with Waterlox Tung oil. This Tung oil comes from the Tung tree, and is the only coating we know of that is impermeable to water. It gives a natural, long-lasting finish to wood floors, and is environmentally friendly. The Tung oil coating provides an impermeable water membrane, as confirmed when all of the old pet stains were easily eradicated by our sander, due to the coating’s protection. The wood protection provided by a coating of Tung oil is quite unbelievable. In fact, Tung oil was used by ancient Native American tribes to seal their canoes and boats from water.

– Tung Oil Coated.

Our clients were thrilled with the look of their sanded and recoated Oak floors, landing, and stairway. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Finished Heart Pine flooring project.

Heart Pine Flooring in Marsh Landing

Homeowners in the Marsh Landing community in Ponte Vedra, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and refinish the Heart Pine flooring in their home, while they would be away on a Spring Break voyage. Since this couple liked the Heart Pine floors in some areas of their home, they asked Dan to also install beautiful New Growth Heart Pine flooring which they had obtained (for a harmonious match and continuation) in some other areas in their home, too. (They chose their an upstairs long hallway, their Master bedroom, and a closet for this flooring improvement project.)

View Outdoors.

After moving the furniture and removing the old flooring, we leveled the plywood sheet subfloor upstairs, by sanding the edges of the sheets. We also got some major squeaks out of the upstairs subfloor by installing some 3″ long screws. Then our crew installed their new growth Heart Pine flooring.
We repaired a board downstairs due to beetle damage, then sanded the upstairs and downstairs Heart Pine flooring.
Then our crew finished the Heart Pine with a beautiful, clear matte finish by Pallmann, to match the look the original flooring had prior to starting this job. (Our crew applied one coat of Pallman clear coat, followed by 2 coats of durable Pallmann Gold matte finish.)

Refinished American Cherry flooring and stairs.

Cupped American Cherry Flooring in Fernandina

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contacted by one of our favorite real estate brokers to help their client with the floors in their newly purchased home. The home is situated right on the Amelia River, just across the water from Fernandina Beach and Amelia Island.

The existing flooring was American Cherry flooring and due to being solid in nature had a good amount of cupping (probably from lack of acclimating the flooring properly, prior to installation).

Solving the flooring cupping problem was the main reason we were selected for this job. No one likes to walk on a cupped floor.

Some of these before photos show the distinct, cupping pattern. Cupping happens when the bottom of the wood is wetter than the top of the wood. In this case, the American Cherry wood flooring which was put in didn’t have enough acclamation time went through the seasonal changes of Northeast Florida, i.e. the extreme humidity. We also refinished the stairway.

Needless to say, we took care of the cupping in the wood flooring by angling the floor by using rough sandpapers and our Lagler Hummel drum sanding machine. We also hand sanded the edges of the flooring. This method gets the flooring surface flat. as well as sanding the surface to prepare it for a new finish. It took 3 runs of paper with our Lagler Hummel drum sander, but our crew eliminated both the cupping and former carpet lines from an area rug had created on the flooring. The sanded wooden flooring and stair treads looked very, very beautiful!

Our crew finished these floors and stairs with three coats of waterborne finish with a satin topcoat Pallmann Clear for a seal coat, and final two coats of durable Pallman power satin.

The realtor and our clients told us they were impressed with how nice these American Cherry floors look now. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Bathroom tiled.

Tile Installation in Sawgrass home

New clients in Sawgrass selected Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to replace the existing tile on walls and floors in the bathroom and laundry room of their home. These clients provided the tiles that we installed. Dan’s Floor Store can install tiles provided by our clients in their home or business. Or we can purchase tiles, marble or stone for our clients, and install these materials, too!

First we had to “demo” (remove the existing tile) and prepare the bathroom and laundry room for the new tile.

  • These photos show demo/preparation in the bathroom.

  • These photos show demo/preparation in the laundry room.

In the bathroom and in the laundry of our clients’ home, our crew installed 12″ by 24″ porcelain tiles on the floors.

For the shower, we installed their square contour tiles in a stacked square design, to line up in an eye-pleasing pattern. For the doorway to the shower, our crew installed white marble up to the doorway and on the top of the curb, as well as the top of the shower walls. We also installed a handy and nicely sized insert shelf. The tile used in the shelf was the same as we used for the shower floor.

Although there are no photos, we did install new cement backer boards in the shower area. Cement backer boards are resistant to mold growth and damage from moisture, making them great tile underlayment for wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens. Our crew also applied waterproofing to the shower walls, prior to tile installation.

Our crew also did not get photos to show that the floors were leveled, prior to tile installation. A level subfloor surface is important for a good tile installation.

  • These photos show our tile work in the bathroom.

  • These photos show our tile work in the laundry.

Our customers were thrilled with our tile work! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
