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.

Installing Hickory Wood Flooring in Julington Creek

Engineered domestic Hickory wood flooringDan’s Floor Store helped a client upgrade their home in Julington Creek, Florida to help give it a new look, installing some stylish Hickory wood flooring.

First we leveled the subfloor, because the wood flooring must lay perfectly flat to avoid developing problems after installation.

Our client selected from the elegant Monticello collection of American made, milled and finished in Tennessee, 7 1/2″ wide by 1/2″ thick engineered domestic Hickory wood flooring by Max Woods Floors. We installed approximately 1200 square feet of Hickory wood flooring in their home.

The new Hickory wood floor turned out nice. Another happy client.

Old Red Oak Wood Floor Repair and Refinishing in Jacksonville Beach

Old solid Red Oak wood floor after repair & refinishingFollowing one of our free Dan’s Floor Store on-site consultations, we recommended a section of the old Red Oak wood flooring in our client’s older cinder block house from the 50s that had been water damaged be replaced, and the rest of their solid Red Oak wood floor be refinished.

We recommended refinishing these old Red Oak wood floors because, except for the area that was water damaged, they were in extremely good condition for their age.

First, we removed the old, water damaged boards and wove in the replacement solid Red Oak boards.

Our customer chose a natural finish for their clear grade Red Oak wood floor.

After sanding, we applied one coat of Bona DTS, Deep Tone Sealer, followed by 3 coats of durable Bona Traffic Satin finish.

Engineered Weathered Walnut floor in Ponte Vedra Beach

Wide engineered, weathered Walnut flooring with white details for the beachy lookFollowing one of our free consultations and estimates, Dan’s Floor Store was asked to install some engineered weathered Walnut flooring with white accents in a home in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, to help give the room a beachy look.

The flooring that the client picked is 6 1/2″ wide engineered weathered Walnut flooring, in 1/2″ thick planks from the Nuvelle Flooring, Blowing Rock Collection. The selected flooring features a white wash, French bleed edges, and white stain in the grain. This is another wood flooring product that is redefining the beachy look in homes and businesses all around the First Coast. This particular flooring was chosen by the client because they liked the way it brings in the colors of the existing tile and cabinets together nicely. And this walnut floor displays a lot of visual variation from piece to piece, as is customary for walnut flooring.

Here’s a look at the room before we removed the existing carpeting. The first day on this project, we removed the old carpeting and leveled the subfloor, in preparation for installing the  engineered walnut flooring.

Here is the installed engineered weathered Walnut flooring.

And here you can see the finished engineered weathered Walnut flooring with the beachy look. We think the new wood floor is really beautiful, and our clients do too!

Sand and Finish old solid Red Oak floors in Neptune Beach

Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to sand and refinish the old solid Red Oak floors in a home in Neptune Beach, Florida.

On our first visit to the worksite to evaluate and estimate the project, we found existing wax on the wood flooring, with surface wear that looked like the floors had not been sanded and refinished since the 1950s.

First we sanded the old solid Red Oak floors. Next we applied a natural stain by DuraSeal. And then we added three coats of DuraSeal oil-modified polyurethane satin as finishing coats for durable protection for these old wooden floors.

As you can see in these photos, this old wood flooring was brought back to life by our excellent craftsmanship and superior machinery. And these old solid Red Oak floors will stay looking good for years ahead.

New Solid White Oak flooring in Atlantic Beach

5" wide solid White Oak floor planks installedFollowing one of our free consultations and estimates, Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to install new solid wood White Oak flooring in a guest house on Beach Avenue in Atlantic Beach, Florida.

The client’s guest house has a great view of the Atlantic Ocean.

First we installed a plywood subfloor, to APA (APA – The Engineered Wood Association) and NWFA (National Wood Flooring Association) standards.

Then we installed select grade, 5″ wide by 3/4″ thick solid White Oak flooring by Shamrock Plank Flooring. Wood flooring planks that are 5″ wide must be glued and nailed down, which is a bit more labor to install, but they look very elegant.

Dan’s Floor Store wood flooring work complies with NWFA standards to provide beautiful results and long lasting wood floors for our customers. For example, when installing solid wood flooring like this one, it’s important to leave room for the wood to expand and contract. That’s why we install expansion joints (which you can see in some of the photos), using nickels between the boards every 10 feet.

Our crew will be coming back to sand and stain this new solid White Oak wood floor in a few months, after the wood has become fully acclimated.

New engineered White Oak wood floors in Jacksonville Beach

It’s always nice when a client likes your work so much that they become a repeat client.

Dan’s Floor Store is very pleased that a lot of our wood floor and tile projects are either for repeat clients or are new clients referred to us by past clients who liked the wood floor or tile project we did for them and referred their family and friends to us.

Engineered White Oak Flooring with white stain in grain by Ark - detailFor this wood flooring project, we were called by a lady we had done a flooring job for two years ago, this time to install new wood flooring in two bedrooms of her Pier Point Condominium in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

Our client selected engineered White Oak flooring with white stain in the grain by Ark, called Brushed Linen from their Estate collection; a redefining beachy look. Very nice selection for this condo, near the beautiful beach.

There is a sound deadening requirement for flooring in Pier Point condos, because the building is comprised of 5 stories of stacked, concrete condo units. To achieve the sound deadening requirement for the condo flooring, we used Bostik’s Vapor Lock which is a sound deadening adhesive.

Our client prefers a shiny floor and the Ark engineered White Oak wood flooring she selected comes prefinished has a dull matte finish. No problem! We finished the floor in place with a semi gloss Bona Mega Clear HD.

We agree with our client, the results are beautiful! Another happy repeat client!

American Cherry Staircase for Westside Jacksonville Home

Recently, Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to install a solid American Cherry staircase in a new green-friendly home on the Westside of Jacksonville, Florida. Solar panels were among a number of ecologically conscious design features in the home.

View of solid American Cherry staircaseThe new staircase we installed in this home uses solid American Cherry for the treads, flooring on the pie-shaped staircase landings and step nosing.

In addition to serving the function of allowing people to move from one floor of their home or business to another, a staircase can be customized like this one was, with a favorite wood and finish, to be more attractive and to reflect the personal taste of the owners.

Following installation, the stairs of this solid American Cherry staircase were sanded and given a natural finish with two coats of an eco-friendly finish that was provided by the homeowner.

Replacing Travertine with European White Oak flooring in St. Johns County

Earlier this year, Dan’s Floor Store replaced approximately 1200 ft.² of Travetine tile with new European White Oak wood flooring in a home on the river in St. Johns county, Florida.

 

New European White Oak plank flooringThe flooring that was chosen for this project is Vintage Loft by Real Wood Floors, a wire brushed European White Oak wood flooring with a lot of texturing and some beautiful knots and grain for character.

First the existing Travertine tile flooring was removed.

In order for the new solid wood flooring to come flush to the existing Travertine in adjoining rooms, we installed “header boards”. Header boards run perpendicular to the direction of the wooden floor planks. We had to make perfect cuts for a good fit and pleasing appearance, using the old wisdom, “Measure twice and cut once”.

The mud bed for the old Travertine tile was not level enough to properly support the new wood flooring, so we had to taper and feather different thicknesses of plywood subfloor to graduate with the rolling mud bed and properly prepare and level the area for the new wood flooring.

We used flooring straps to get the floor super tight. Some of the planks/boards were very long boards up to 8 foot long to be exact.

The new European White Oak wood plank flooring has a 4 mm sawn face and is coated with UV cured oil. This wood flooring is 8 3/4 inches wide by 5/8 inch thick. The final European White Oak wood flooring looks beautiful!

New Solid White Oak Plank Flooring in Deerwood Country Club

Following one of our free wood flooring consultations and estimates, Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to install new solid wood plank floors in a home in the gated Deerwood Country Club community in Jacksonville, Florida.

New solid White Oak select plank flooringThis project consisted of installing solid White Oak plank select floors from Shamrock Plank Flooring in three upstairs bedrooms. The clients chose random width planks for two of the rooms (3″, 6″, and 8″ wide) and 2 1/4″ wide planks in the third room, to be congruent with the width of the wood plank flooring in the hall and master bedroom.

Following after installation, we sanded the new White Oak plank flooring to level the floors and prepare them for staining and finishing.

We applied a neutral DuraSeal stain with oil base sealer, and then followed with two coats of Bona Traffic Satin for a durable, elegant finish.
