Wood Look Floor Tile in Jacksonville Beach

Wood look floor tile (also known as faux wood floor tile) offers the natural look, rich colors and warmth of real wood planks, the rustic look of wood grain and the durability of ceramic or porcelain tile.

The cost of wood look floor tiles versus actual wood plank flooring makes the choice of one material or the other a matter of personal preferences.

Following one of our free Dan’s Floor Store consultations, owners of a home in Jacksonville Beach, Florida decided on porcelain tiles with beautiful wood grain in dark tones by Emser Tile.

Before installing the faux wood floor tiles, we prepared the concrete sub floor by removing the prior flooring, cleaning the surface, and making sure it was sufficiently flat for tile installation.

These wood look floor tiles give a new look and feel to this friendly Jacksonville Beach home.

New White Oak Flooring in Julington Creek

Owners of a charming home in Julington Creek in Jacksonville, Florida wanted to upgrade the look and value of their home by installing new wood flooring to cover 800 square feet of the floors in their home.

Following one of our free Dan’s Floor Store consultations, the home owners chose the 8 1/2 inch wide by 5/8 inch thick wire brushed engineered White Oak flooring, with a UV oil topcoat: Vintage Loft by Real Wood Floors.

  • A UV oil finish makes for an attractive furniture-type finish. The oil actually penetrates the wood’s surface and provides rich appearance.

First we remove the old carpet and carpet padding, and clean the slab subfloor.

This photo shows some of the thorough and often extensive subfloor leveling which Dan’s Floor Store must perform as part of every single job. The wood flooring must lay perfectly flat to avoid developing problems with the new wood floor after installation.

This photo shows wood floor planks being strapped together with special flooring straps during installation, due to the width of the planks.

White Oak flooring with Travertine stairway in Palm Valley

To help our clients achieve the modern look they wanted, we installed 1800 square feet of stylish blackish-gray flooring in their home, using 8 1/2 inch wide wire brushed White Oak planks.

We also installed the travertine that our clients wanted for their stairway, for which solid pieces of travertine were cut to fit the treads and risers of the stairway, to make the staircase complete.

As you can see, we covered the upper and intermediate landings with travertine too, creating a smooth flow from one level of the home to another.

White Oak with White Stain – Plantation Country Club

Installed wire brushed engineered white oak floor with white stainDuring one of our Dan’s Floor Store free consultations, a couple living in the Plantation Country Club community in Ponte Vedra, Florida asked us to help give their home a more beachy style.

We suggested wire brushed 7 1/2′ wide White Oak engineered wood flooring from LW Flooring with a white stain for the 3 bedrooms they were wanting to renovate, which has been a popular look over the last few years for a “beach house look” in local Florida homes.

The couple liked the look and asked us to install the new flooring in 3 of their bedrooms, amounting to nearly 1000 square feet of White Oak engineered wood flooring to be installed and stained.

Here are some photos that show the bedrooms prior to installation of the new wood flooring.

And here is the White Oak engineered wood flooring installed. We “popped” the grain of the new wood flooring with water, to achieve better penetration of the white stain, for a better visual effect.

Refinishing Wood Floors for a Beach House Look

Stained and refinished Red Oak floor for the beach house lookFollowing one of our Free consultations about the condition of their floors and what the homeowners wanted to accomplish, Dan’s Floor Store was given the job of refinishing two wood floors in a home in Atlantic Beach, Florida.

The clients wanted to achieve more of a “beach house look” in their home. We could refinish their existing wood flooring as part of renovations to achieve this look.

They had some nice Red Oak flooring installed in one area of their home.

This is how the Red Oak floor looked, prior to staining and refinishing.

And this is how the Yellow Pine Kitchen floor looked, prior to staining and refinishing.

To get the “beach house look” that the clients’ wanted, we sanded the floors and then applied water to “pop” the grain of the wood (to allow the stain to penetrate deeper into the wood grain).

We stained the floors with a mixture of two parts white to one part classic gray. Then we applied the finishing coating of polyurethane to protect the wood floors so they will continue to look good for years.

Wood Floor Repair and Refinishing in Jacksonville

exposed sub-floor prior to weave-in wood floor repairFollowing one of our free consultations, Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to repair the Red Oak wood flooring in a Jacksonville home as part of a renovation project.

This home has a beautiful view of the St. Johns river, and is located near University Boulevard and Atlantic Boulevard.

As part of the renovation work, the existing kitchen and a wall were removed, leaving a large hole in the existing wood flooring. Dan’s Floor Store skills in wood floor repair can help make this wood floor look beautiful again.

To fill this exposed area of subfloor, we installed new 1 1/2″ solid Red Oak plank flooring, weaving each piece into existing planks of the old wood floors. Slightly over 100 of the new planks were woven-in to repair the floors in this home. A weave-in wood floor repair is a little more difficult than installing new wood plank flooring, and more routine weave-in repairs usually involve fewer planks to added.

It’s good practice to allow the wood flooring to sit and acclimate for two weeks prior to starting the refinishing phase of the project – sanding and finishing these floors.

Several weeks later we began the next phase of this project.

This solid inch and a half strip Red Oak flooring had some cupping to it so we had to sand it at a 45 degree angle, just like we do with all new solid wood flooring. Sanding wood flooring at a 45 degree angle helps to flatten the floor surface, so that we can “cut” (sand) the floor straight with rough grit paper.

A neutral DuraSeal stain was chosen for this floor to compliment the dark cherry color cabinets to be installed. Two coats of water based polyurethane were applied, followed by a final coat of Bona Traffic satin when the remainder of the renovation work in the home was completed.

Here are some photos of the final kitchen, with new Kitchen Cabinets and Island installed by Horn Builders. Everyone likes how the new darker finished cabinets and island are set off by the lighter wood flooring.

Removing the kitchen wall resulted in a much roomier kitchen, and gave the clients the open floor plan appearance that they wanted.

Wood Flooring Refinish and Repair in Jacksonville Beach

Dan’s Floor Store was selected to refinish the wood floors in this home in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

In addition to refinishing the wood floors, there was a section of flooring that had to be replaced; a 50 board, weave-in repair. We also installed some nice vinyl plank flooring in the upstairs master bedroom suite.

These photos show us preparing for and during the refinishing phase of this project.

The client chose the Classic Gray stain by DuraSeal for the 2 1/4″ solid Red Oak flooring downstairs. We applied Bona Traffic polyurethane (a commercial-rated, waterborne finish) coating to protect the wood floor, in a satin sheen.

We agree that our client’s selection, the Classic Gray stain by DuraSeal, conveys a very beachy look; very fitting for the location of the home, just steps away from the Beach.

At Dan’s Floor Store, we enjoy helping clients save some money while extending the life of their wood flooring.

Wood Floor Repair, Sand, and Stain in Ponte Vedra Florida

Refinished (sanded and stained) solid Red Oak wood floorWe were invited out to a home in TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida to provide one of our free professional consultations concerning their wood floors.

The clients wanted to renovate their home with darker wood floors and stairway, and wanted our insight on a water damaged area of wood flooring in their home.

  • Rather than replacing their wood floors, we recommended sanding and staining them, and repairing the damaged area of wood flooring.

This project presented a large area of wood flooring to be sanded and stained, in addition to the area of wood flooring to be repaired.

In the damaged flooring area, the plywood sub-floor and the solid wood flooring had to be removed and the concrete dried out before the new plywood could be installed followed by new 3 1/4 inch solid Red Oak wood flooring.

The staircase treads had been the natural color of the wood floor, with white risers to the treads. The stair treads and risers would need to be sanded and stained as part of this project.

Sanding the wood floors to prepare them for staining and coating.

The customers selected a DuraSeal in Antique Brown for their floors and staircase.

A satin waterborne Bona Traffic polyurethane was used for coating.

This was a large scale flooring project, and after it was finished, it looked great and it was a fun one to work on! We enjoy helping clients save some money while extending the life of their wood flooring.

Brazilian Cherry Wood Floor Refinishing in St. Augustine

Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to sand and refinish the wood floors in a home in Saint Augustine, Florida, near the marsh on Anastasia Island. We refinished all of the wood flooring in the home, some of which was Brazilian Cherry wood flooring, as featured in this article.

We sanded the wood floors, and finished them with three coats of polyurethane Bona Mega Clear Satin.

Between coats of finish, we screened (lightly sanded, not touching the actual wood) the floors to result in a smoother, thicker, deeper and richer looking protective polyurethane coating.

The Sanded, Screened and Recoated wood floors (including these Brazilian Cherry Wood floors) looked great and our clients were very pleased to see the results. We enjoy helping clients save some money while extending the life of their wood flooring.
