Refinishing clear grade solid Red Oak flooring in Jacksonville

Wood floor refinishing is a good option whether thinking about selling a home or business, or just looking to give a wood flooring a fresh look. Many clients choose wood floor refinishing as the best way to make their old, scuffed and worn wood floors look nice again.

Refinished old clear grade solid Red Oak flooringDan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 offers a free wood floor consultation to help people decide whether to refinish or replace their wood flooring. If we find areas of the wood flooring that needs repair, we can do that, too.

For this project, the clients in a home on University Boulevard in Jacksonville just needed about 500 square feet of old clear grade solid Red Oak wood floors sanded and refinished. Clear grade Red Oak is a mostly heartwood flooring. Clear grade allows all the natural heartwood color variations with minimal character marks and limited color variation. –  National Wood Flooring Association (nwfa).

First we thoroughly sanded the wood floor.

We finished the Red Oak flooring with Bona Mega Clear HD for improved chemical resistance and increased scuff and scratch resistance.

The old clear grade solid Red Oak floors look good again. Our clients were very pleased with their refinished wood floor.

Hickory Hardwood Flooring Installation – Plantation Oaks in Ponte Vedra Beach

Dan’s Floor Store works to make every wood flooring installation a good experience. Clients that are pleased with our work often recommend us to friends and family.

Engineered wide plank Hickory flooring installedThis wood flooring project was the result of a recommendation from one of the local real estate agents who often recommends Dan’s Floor Store to their clients who want to improve the home that they are considering with wood or tile floors, or professionally refinishing the old, existing wood flooring.

The couple wanted 1350 square feet of existing wood and tile flooring in the home removed, and new wood flooring installed. We can do that!

The couple picked 1/2″ by 7 1/2″ wide planks of engineered Hickory hardwood flooring, in a style called Monticello Hearthsone, by Max Woods.

We stacked the boxes of flooring planks to the side of the work area, and set up a temporary work shop on the back patio of the home. Special flooring straps are used to hold these wood planks together during installation, due to the width of the planks.

The installed Hickory hardwood flooring look excellent and the homeowners were very happy.

Hand Scraped Birch Wood Flooring Installation – Odom’s Mill

Our Dan’s Floor Store crew works hard to do a good job on our residential and commercial flooring projects for each of our clients. Whether we are installing a new wood floor, repairing or refinishing a wood floor, or installing tile or stone, we work with our clients to make the project a good experience for them. It just makes good sense to treat others the way you want to be treated.

And we are thankful that many times our clients show their appreciation for our work on their flooring project by calling Dan’s Floor Store when they have another wood or tile flooring project. Many prior clients also recommend us to their friends and families.

A year or so ago, a couple who own a charming home in the Odom’s Mill community of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida contracted us to install wood flooring in rooms covering about 1250 square feet of their home. They said they really loved their new wood floors.

Recently they called on us to install some pre-finished, hand scraped Birch wood flooring that they had purchased to match their existing wood floors. This new project covered the floors in two more bedrooms of their charming home, and further increases the value of their home.

Dan’s Floor Store sells a wide variety of name brand wood flooring and tile, samples of which are on display in our Ponte Vedra Showroom. And, just like on this project, we will also install wood flooring that a client has purchased on their own.

When this project started, both bedroom floors were covered with carpet. We removed the carpet and leveled the concrete subfloor, so the wooden flooring would not be damaged by unevenness in the concrete surface.

You can see in these photos how the hand scraped Birch wood flooring that our clients picked looks great and matched beautifully with their existing wood flooring that we had previously installed.

Everyone was pleased with how good the newly installed wood flooring looks.

Red Oak Stair Treads and Wood-Look Floor Tiles – Plantation Country Club

New wood-look floor tilesA client in the Plantation community in Ponte Vedra wanted the treads in the staircase of their home replaced with new, solid Red Oak treads to match the existing solid Red Oak wood flooring in the home.

Our client also wanted some wood-look floor tiles installed in an entry way in their home.

Dan’s Floor Store installed, sanded, hand scraped, and stained the new, solid Red Oak stair treads to match the shade of the existing Red Oak flooring. Then we coated the treads with three coats of Bona Traffic finish.

  • We use Bona Traffic because it’s proven to provide a durable finish, and stair treads in a home or business always see a lot of traffic wear.

For the second project in this charming home, the client selected Emser wood-look ceramic tile from their Grove collection

  • We installed the 6″ by 24″ Emser wood-look floor tiles in an entry way hall of the home, which connects the garage, laundry room and bath.

Dan’s Floor Store enjoys helping clients make improvements to their homes and businesses. Our client was very pleased with our finished work.

  • give the stairs in your home or business a new look

Wood Floor Weave-in and Install at the King and Bear

Installed - new engineered hand scraped birch wood flooringThis Dan’s Floor Store wood floor weave-in and install project took place in a home at the King and Bear community – part of the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida.

The client wanted to replace the tile floors in the hallways, kitchen, and dining room with wood flooring.

And they wanted the new wood flooring to appear as a continuation of the existing wood flooring that had been previously installed in their home.

First the tile and thinset used to adhere the tiles to the concrete subfloor had to be removed, and the entire area to be covered in wood flooring had be be leveled.

To match the existing wood flooring, we found a beautiful engineered hand scraped Birch wood flooring, 5″ x 3/8″ planks from the Rucsello collection by Bella Cera.

To blend the new wood flooring in with the existing wood flooring, we wove in ten boards, and went on to extend the new wood flooring throughout all the hallways, in the kitchen, and in the dining room of the home.

The weave-in and installation turned out beautifully, and our client was very pleased. In all, we installed 600 square feet of wood flooring.

Refinishing Old Wood Floors and Stairs in Historic Springfield

Refinishing old wood floors to their earlier elegance always gives a little more happiness to the Dan’s Floor Store crew when we are working with historically significant homes. We are helping to preserve our Country’s architectural history.

Dan’s Floor store has restored old wood floors in homes in historic St. Augustine, and for this project, we were refinishing wood floors in the historic Springfield community of Jacksonville, Florida.

Actually, the Springfield Historic District is a neighborhood located to the north of downtown Jacksonville. Established in 1869, Springfield is one of only three federally designated historic districts in Jacksonville, the other historic districts being Riverside/Avondale and Old Ortega.

Dan’s Floor Store refinished old face nailed solid Quarter Sawn solid White Oak wood floors (downstairs) and solid Heart Pine wood floors (upstairs).

Here are some photos of the condition of these old wood floors and stairs when we arrived at the client’s home.

We used the buffer before coating and in between coats of finish to abrade the wood flooring for proper bonding. Stair treads need to be edged twice, scraped and then palm sanded prior to coating.

Here you can see some edger work on Quarter Sawn White Oak wood flooring in the kitchen. We use the radiator edger to get under cabinets, back to the toe kicks.

And these photos show the refinished wood floors. We took some of the photos with the same views as we took the “before” photos above, so you can see how good these restored floors look now.

Pegged Look White Oak Floor Install and Weave-in Deerwood Country Club

A previous client had us come install a custom weave-in to an area of their solid Finished pegged look white oak flooringwhite oak floor, and then refinish some additional wood flooring, in their charming home in the Deerwood Country Club community of Jacksonville, Florida.

This project involved not only installing new Solid White Oak plank select flooring from Shamrock Plank Flooring in random width planks (3″, 6″, and 8″ wide), but also weaving the new wood flooring into some existing flooring which was also 3 “, 6″, and 8” random widths.

The new White Oak flooring planks being installed would be enhanced with a pegged look as though they were held down with dark Walnut pegs. (The pegged look wood floor effect is achieved by pre-drilling holes near the ends of each plank, prior to their installation and then inserting walnut plugs (to simulate pegs) after the planks are installed.)

We glued and nailed the new wood flooring installation.

Dan’s Floor Store also sanded the newly installed wood floor along with all of the other existing wood flooring on first floor the home for a total of 2700 ft.² of flooring. (This refinishing did not include the wood flooring that we had installed on the second floor of this home in March.) And as we worked, a rainbow came our to brighten our day.

Dan’s Floor Store finished the new wood flooring with Bona flooring products:

Costa Rican Teak Floor Install Pablo Pointe

Close-up of Costa Rican Teak wood flooringAlthough Dan’s Floor Store sells a variety of wood flooring, we also can install wood flooring that our client provides.

For this project, we installed some Costa Rican Teak hardwood flooring which these repeat clients had saved from a wood flooring project we had done years ago in their home off San Pablo Rd. in Pablo Pointe subdivision. We have made many Costa Rican Teak hardwood flooring installations over the years. Now the clients wanted this same, stunning wood flooring installed in two bedrooms for their children.

Here’s some photos of one of the carpeted bedrooms (before the old carpeting was removed), the concrete subfloor being prepared, and the Costa Rican Teak hardwood flooring being installed in one of the bedrooms. This wood flooring installation project was completed in two days; a very nice install.

Costa Rican Teak hardwood flooring is very beautiful; stunningly wild and natural looking.

Our customers are exceedingly happy with their new flooring installation.

New Maple Flooring and Refinishing Red Oak Floor in Arlington

New Maple wood flooring installed with seams aligned on upper and lower levelsOur clients wanted some new wood flooring installed, and some existing wood flooring refinished, in their home on the marsh, just off of McCormick/Mt. Pleasant on Girvin Road, in the Arlington area of Jacksonville, Florida.

Existing carpeting and existing wood flooring was removed in order to install the new flooring. Then we leveled the concrete subfloor, in preparation for the new wood flooring.

The clients chose a 5″ wide, hand scraped engineered maple hardwood flooring from the Padova collection by Versini.

During the installation, we undercut the stone fireplace, and matched perfectly with the different colored baseboards and built-in cabinets’ kick plates.

We laid the new maple flooring on the lower elevation first, then we lined it up the seams of the new maple flooring planks on the higher elevation with the seams in the new flooring on the lower elevation.

  • It takes a little more time, a little more work, but aligning seams in adjacent levels of flooring like this reflect our attention to detail, to create a more appealing appearance of our finished work for our clients, and guests in their homes.

We sanded the existing red oak wood flooring to reveal its natural appearance. Then we stained it with Minwax Honey stain, and gave it three coats of Bona Mega Clear satin.

The whole project looks great and our customers love the colors of their new and refinished wood floors.
