Sand, Stain, Finish Red Oak Flooring in Matanzas Inlet

Homeowners in the Matanzas Inlet, Florida neighborhood contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to stain and refinish their Red Oak floors. They also wanted us to stain and refinish their stairway treads to match the new look of their floors.

Here are some photos of the way their Red Oak floors looked before we started.

Our crew started this project by sanding 1,500 square feet of Red Oak flooring to remove the old finish. We used our big Lagler-Hummel belt sander. for the main areas. Then our crew used edge sanders and hand scraped the edges of the wood flooring.

To get better visual results with the wood stain, we “popped” the grain of the wood flooring with a little water. Popping raises the grain of the wood to allow the stain to penetrate deeper in the wood than the stain would, if applied straight out of the can.

In order to get the look our clients wanted, our crew mixed three parts Provincial to one part Neutral/Natural Bona wood stains.

To finish this Red Oak flooring, we applied the applied two coats of durable Pallmann productsPall-X Clear Sealer and then Pall-X Power Finish. Then we buffed down these first two coats of polyurethane finish, and finished this job with a final coat of Pallmann Gold. The Pallmann Gold top coat is a non-ambering, clear, 2 part waterborne polyurethane finish.

We followed the same sequence – sanding, staining, and refinishing – on the stair treads. We achieved a nice matching look with the wood.

Our clients were very pleased with the outcome of this wood flooring and staircase stain and refinish project. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Heart Pine Plank Flooring – Sand and Finish – Springfield

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 does flooring projects for residential and commercial clients, and for local building and renovation contractors. This is about the 10th job we have done for this client. It’s always nice when a prior client appreciates your work, and calls you with a new job!

This flooring project took place in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, in the historic Springfield neighborhood.

The home was built in the 1930s, and has existing Heart Pine plank flooring. Our client contracted us to sand and finish these old wooden floors.

Pre-Refinishing.

Our crew sanded the Heart Pine plank flooring, and hand scraped the edges.

Sanding.

Next we applied 1 coat of Bona dri-fast Sealer.

And then we finished these old Heart Pine floors with 2 coats of Bona Woodline satin oil-modified polyurethane.

Between application of the Bona finish coats, we screened these Heart Pine floors for proper bonding and to give the smoothest possible results.

When we screen wood flooring, we use a buffer and a mesh screen covered with an abrasive, instead of regular sand paper discs. Screening provides lighter abrasion to the floor finish, providing a good roughness that helps the new finish coat of polyurethane adhere properly.

Refinishing.

After seeing their refinished Heart Pine plank flooring, our customer was very happy! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Finished.

Luxury Vinyl Plank Stairway and Flooring Installation in Nocatee

Luxury vinyl plank flooring - installedWhen they were ready for a flooring improvement project in their home, some Nocatee residents contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install Luxury Vinyl Plank on their stairway and on the second floor of their home.

Our clients chose 7″ wide Luxury Vinyl Plank by Palmetto Road Flooring in the color “Good Earth”, from the Tidewater collection.

This job was all upstairs work and stairs. Our crew started by sanding the seams of the plywood subfloor. It appeared that the plywood had swollen at the seams in the sheets of plywood, possibly from rain before the roof was installed on the home.

This first step is just one of things we do to make a quality flooring installation for happy clients. We don’t just go into a new job site and start laying down the new flooring. Our crew starts by prepping the subfloor. And for this job, it meant sanding all the raised plywood subfloor seams so the Luxury Vinyl flooring planks would lay flat and evenly over the subfloor. This step is very important for good results with Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring. Luxury Vinyl Plank is not made to absorb irregularities in the subflooring surface.

Sanding.

Installing Flooring.

On the staircase, our crew installed the Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, nosing, and white risers, to give the staircase a nice, timeless look. White risers against the dark wood tone looks beautiful! It also helps differentiate the steps for safer use. This helps with easier visibility and depth perception for people who use the steps.

Stairs.

Our crew finished out the job by installing white shoe molding around the edges of the new Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, where the existing baseboards were.

Finished.

Needless to say our customers were thrilled with the outcome. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

View of extension on back / river side of project home.Homeowners on CR 13 in St. Augustine contracted Dan’s Floor Store to help with their flooring, as part of their home improvement project.

They were adding an extension on the rear of their riverfront home, and wanted to extend the quarter sawn solid White Oak flooring inside.

There was no leveling required for this job, because the wood flooring was installed directly to the subfloor. It was a nailed down installation. (We used our Woodwise White Oak test kit to verify the existing wood flooring was white oak.) Our crew started work by cutting weave in pattern into the ends of the existing White Oak flooring planks. This will create a continuous look to the pattern of the wood flooring.

After removing the cut out wood, we began weaving in the White Oak flooring planks. and installing the unfinished, solid White Oak quarter sawn select flooring by Oakcrest Lumber.

Our floor sander vacuum filled up 7 bags with sawdust while rough sanding the new quarter sawn White Oak flooring, and the finish from the old White Oak plank floor.

Our crew finished the quarter sawn White Oak flooring with three coats of tough and durable Bona Woodline satin polyurethane.

These clients told us that we had achieved just the look they wanted for their home renovations, with the new and refinished White Oak flooring. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Southern Yellow Pine Stain and Refinish with Stair Treads – St. Augustine

Owners of a riverfront home in St. Augustine called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate on a home flooring improvement project. They wanted to stain and refinish their Southern Yellow Pine flooring. The homeowners also wanted their White Oak stair treads refinished, using the same stain.

After the meeting, we got the job!

Our crew began work on this project by sanding and hand scraping the edges of the Southern Yellow Pine plank floors, and sanding the White Oak stair treads.

We “popped” the wood grain on the floor and stairs with water. This opens the wood grain up for a more even, darker and deeper stain effect.

To get the look the homeowners wanted for their wood flooring and stair treads, we used quality Bona Antique Brown stain for both.

Our crew finished the Southern Yellow Pine plank floors and White Oak stair treads with durable Pallmann products – first, one coat of Pallmann sealer. And then we applied two coats of durable Pallmann Power satin finish.

Our clients were delighted to see their refinished Southern Yellow Pine wood floors, and White Oak stairs. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Re-oiling Du Chateau Hardwood Flooring – Vilano Beach

Du Chateau Maintenance OilHomeowners called on Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to re-oil the Du Chateau engineered White Oak hardwood flooring in their Vilano Beach home.

Du Chateau recommends a periodic application of their Du Chateau Maintenance Oil, depending on the environmental conditions and amount of traffic.

This is a special formulated oil for re-coating, which invigorates the wood flooring.

First our crew moved their furniture outside, and thoroughly vacuumed the White Oak hardwood flooring.

Then we used Du Chateau cleaner to bring dirt to the surface and remove foreign residue from the surface. The Du Chateau cleaner allows their oil to bond properly with their flooring.

First our crew leveled the concrete slab subfloor, to prepare it for the new wood flooring.

Next we installed the new Red Oak flooring planks, lining them up to the existing lines of the old floor.

We sanded the Red Oak flooring and then “popped” the grain of the wood planks with water to open them up for better stain absorption.
