Sand, Stain, Finish Red Oak Flooring and Staircase – Fruit Cove

Saws set up on the back patio.This flooring and staircase project took Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to a home in the gated community called Bayside, in the Switzerland / Fruit Cove, Florida area.

Our clients selected unfinished, engineered, rotary peeled Red Oak flooring by Howell hardwood flooring for their home improvement project.

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.

Our crew stained the wood flooring with Bona Antique Brown stain.

Then we finished the wood flooring in this room with Pallmann products. Our crew applied one coat of Pallman Pall-X Clear sealer , then a coat of Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish. We buffed down the floor and applied a final coat of Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish. Our crew finished this room first, so that the grand piano could be moved into the room, and we could do the rest of the job.

We refinished the adjacent Red Oak floors in the home to match the new Red Oak flooring. This part of the job included weave-in repair of 10 damaged flooring planks.

Our crew also sanded and stained the stair treads to match, as well as the stair rail.

Our clients said they were impressed with our work and how nice the wood floors and stair cases looked. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Install, Sand and Finish Red Oak Flooring – Mandarin

Riverside Mandarin - client's homeClients whose home was damaged by Hurricane Irma (which came through Jacksonville, Florida in September 2017), called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to help restore their home.

This project started with us leveling the concrete slab subfloor (as we do for all wood flooring installation jobs). Our clients selected a 3″ wide, unfinished, engineered Red Oak flooring by Maxwell. This wood flooring product is made in the USA, and will harmonize with the existing 3″ wide Red Oak flooring on the upper floor. (Which our crew will sand and stain in a few weeks, to match the color wood flooring selected for the first floor wood.) We installed the Red Oak flooring using Bostik Pro Cure adhesive. To prepare the fireplace in the center of the room for the new wood flooring, our crew undercut the bottom edge with a jamb saw equipped with a diamond blade. We measured and cut each board to fit the bumpy contour of the central fireplace with a jig saw.

After completing the flooring installation, our crew began sanding the new flooring. Our client’s selection of an engineered wood flooring was a benefit to the time frame required for this project. This is because engineered wood does not require acclimation time after installation; we can begin sanding the flooring to prepare for staining and finishing immediately.

Next we “popped the grain” of the wood with water, to achieve a deep, beautiful color stain. Our crew applied Bona Jacobean stain.

We finished this Red Oak flooring with 1 coat of Pallmann Clear Sealer, and 2 coats of Pallmann Power finish – satin.

Our customers told us that they were overjoyed to see their beautiful Red Oak floors. And Dan’s Floor Store always enjoys having happy clients! We will be back in a few weeks to sand, stain and finish the Red Oak flooring upstairs. So, “Stay tuned” for a follow-up article about our work in this home!

Removal – Install, Sand, Stain, and Finish Red Oak Flooring – Jacksonville, FL

Westside Jacksonville homeowners contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to remove tile and carpeting from their home, and install Red Oak flooring.

To get the Red Oak flooring with the look our clients wanted, we recommended 5″ wide, unfinished engineered Red Oak by Maxwell, that we would custom stain to their preference. This wood flooring is made in the USA, and has a 4mm sawn face.

First our crew removed the old tile and carpeting.

The concrete slab subfloor of the home required us to do an immense amount of leveling. A wood flooring installation requires a flat surface.

We began installing the Red Oak flooring by putting a header board at the master bedroom, where some 5″ wide flooring had previously been installed. Our crew lined the new Red Oak boards up with the existing ones, for visual continuity and harmony. We installed, then sanded all of the new wood flooring. 

Next, our crew stained the new Red Oak boards with a custom blend of 3 quality Bona stains – 2 parts Cocoa ,2 parts Antique Brown, and 1 part Golden Oak. For finishing, we applied 3 coats of durable Pallmann finish – 1 coat of clear sealer, and 2 coats of semi gloss Power.

Needless to say, our clients were thrilled with the outcome of this floor job. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand, Stain, and Finish Wood Flooring at Matthew’s Restaurant in San Marco

Matthew's Restaurant of San Marco, in Jacksonville, FloridaMatthew’s Restaurant in San Marco, in Jacksonville, has been recognized as one of Northeast Florida’s most distinctive restaurants since its opening in 1997.

Chef Matthew of Matthew’s Restaurant, and Dan DiCarlo, owner of Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 have been friends for over 25 years.

The Restaurant was being closed for a week for renovations under a tight timeline, and Chef Matthew called Dan to refinish (sand, stain, and finish) the bar area Oak wood flooring.

Our crew started work at 5AM, sanding the bar floor with rough paper. Then we sanded the Oak floor with fine paper, hand scraped the corners and palm sanded all the ends to eliminate any sanding marks. Next our crew buffed the job smooth.

To achieve a deep stain, we “popped” the wood flooring grain with water applied with damp cloths.

We applied Bona Ebony stain. Our crew applied on coat of Pallmann clear, followed by one coat of Pallmann Power ultra matte finish.

Two days later, after the bar area had been painted, we buffed down the job and put a final coat of Pallmann 98 ultra matte.

Matthew and his staff were thoroughly pleased with our performance and the beautiful wooden bar floor job we left! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Hickory Hardwood Flooring Installation in Jacksonville Beach

One of our contractor associates called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to help with home improvements to the flooring in a 3 level condominium, located just west of the Intracoastal Bridge in the Beach Boulevard area of Jax Beach – Lighthouse Point.

First our crew removed the existing wood and carpet flooring from the second and third floors of the condo. Then we leveled those subfloors, to prepare them for our new wood flooring installation. The subfloors on all jobs done by Dan’s Floor Store must be leveled prior to flooring installation, to guarantee a strong bond to subfloor and a solid sounding floor versus a hollow floor sound! This job took 17 bags of Bostiks SL 150 Self Leveler to get the floors leveled!

With the subfloor leveled, our crew installed the hand scraped and wire brushed engineered Hickory hardwood flooring; Sunset Hills by Naturally Aged Flooring. We used Bostik Pro Cure adhesive for this 7 1/2” wide hickory hardwood flooring installation. You can see the flooring straps our crew used to install these wide flooring planks in some of the photos.

And, needless to say, the clients loved their new wood floors! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand, White Wash and Finish Maple Flooring and Staircase – Marsh Landing Country Club

White washed look Maple flooringA couple moving to our First Coast from Chicago called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a Free consultation and estimate. The couple had purchased a beautiful home in the Marsh Landing Country Club community. They wanted their solid Maple and engineered Maple (by Mirage) floors sanded and finished, and we got this flooring project!

Our clients also wanted a white wash look for these Maple floors. Maple is a lighter color specie, however the existing maple was super yellowed. This yellowing happens naturally, because Maple has the tendency to yellow with age. Fortunately, as soon as you put the sander on it and start sanding this wood flooring, it goes back to a super light color!

You can see the color difference in these 3 pieces of Maple natural flooring.

We really like our clients’ concept for these Maple floors. There is a beautiful look to Maple with the white washed look!

Our crew sanded and hand scraped the edges of the Maple flooring.

Our clients also wanted their staircase to have this white washed look. So we sanded and hand scraped the edges of the 25 stairs and risers, and the handrail.

We applied Bona NordicSeal to give the Maple floors and stairway the white washed look. Then we buffed down those first two coats. Our crew finished the Maple floor with two coats of Pallmann Power Ultra Matte. The stair rail was Brazilian Cherry wood, and we coated with the white washing agent many times (five coats) to get it light and non reddish!

The clients were astounded with the transformation of their floors and stairway! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Install, Screen and Coat Red Oak Flooring – Hampton Glen

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 got a call from homeowners in Hampton Glen, a subdivision next to Deerwood (off Baymeadows Road in Jacksonville). These prior clients wanted us to install some Red Oak flooring in their master bedroom, and screen and coat the Red Oak flooring we had previously sanded and finished for them.

Our crew removed 250 square feet of existing carpeting, then leveled the concrete slab floor using Bostik SL-150 Self Leveling underlayment. And then we installed the 2 1/4″ wide unfinished, plain sawn / slice cut, engineered Red Oak flooring by Maxwell (Townsend Additions line) using Bostik Pro Cure adhesive.

Our crew sanded the new Red Oak flooring, then finished it with one coat of Pallmann Pall-X Color, color sealer. We followed up with 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power finish water borne polyurethane, in ultra matte.

Screen and Coat is a good maintenance procedure to protect your wood floors. When we “screen and coat” 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. We recommend screening and coating wood floors that get normal use on a 5 year cycle, to restore the finish and protect the wood flooring. We screened and coated 1,200 square feet of the plain sawn / slice cut Red Oak flooring with Walnut inlays in this home. Our crew applied water based polyurethane finish; Pallmann’s Pall-X Power finish water borne polyurethane.

Our customers loved the job we did on their Red Oak floors, and even wrote us a very nice Review. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand, Stain and Finish White Oak Flooring – North Vilano Beach

For this home improvement project, our Dan’s Floor Store crew was called to a home in North Vilano Beach. The homeowners wanted their wire brushed 5″ White Oak flooring stained to match the look of their wooden stairs treads. We can do that!

After closing off the portion of the home where we would be working on their floors with ZipWall Dust Barrier System, we sanded and hand edged the White Oak flooring down to bare wood.

Our crew applied a light spray of water to “pop” the White Oak wood grain. Then we selected and applied a 50/50 combination of Bona stains; Bark and Red Mahogany to achieve the matching look on the floors.

We finished the match stained wood floors with Pallmann Pall-X Color, color sealer, followed by 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power Finish, satin water borne polyurethane.

Our customers were very happy to see their color matched White Oak wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand and Finish Heart Pine Flooring Repair – St. Augustine, FL

The owner of a home on the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine had some water damage to the Heart Pine flooring in his kitchen and living room areas.

The homeowner replaced the damaged Heart Pine wood flooring himself. And then he was referred (by one of our prior clients) to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and finish his wood floors.

Our crew sanded the old flooring and new flooring together. To begin, we had to make several angle cuts with rough sandpaper, due to the tough old finish on the wood floors. Next our crew sanded the floors with fine sand paper, buffed the floors, and then hand scraped all the corners.

We sealed the floor with Bona DriFast Sealer. Our crew buffed the floors between the first and second coats of Sealer.

Then we finished the Heart Pine flooring with 2 coats of Bona Woodline satin oil-modified polyurethane.

Our client was very happy with the results we achieved for his Heart Pine floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
