Refinishing Old Solid Red Oak Wood Floors in St. Augustine for a Beachy Look

View of St. Augustine Lighthouse.The homeowner wanted the very old clear grade solid Red Oak wood floors from the 1950s/60s in their home refinished with a modern coastal look.

The home is located near the St. Augustine Amphitheater and very close to the lighthouse.

Here are some photos of the old, clear grade solid Red Oak wood flooring in the client’s home. You can see a water damaged areas in clearly in some of the photos.

First we sanded the drab old wood floors. The first photo shows all of the machinery we used for this project. You can see our sanders and the commercial vacuum that we attach to collect the sanding dust. The second photo shows an area of the sanded old Red Oak flooring near the doorway. The third photo shows our floor sander vacuum sanding the floor. The last photo in this group shows how we used a hand scraper to “pull” all the ends of the sanded planks, to eliminate any sanding marks on the wood floors. The sanding work on this job was absolutely impeccable!

Next we used a Classic Gray stain made by Bona to create the beachy look. Then we finished these wood floors with two coats of Bona mega clear HD satin – and a final coat of Bona Traffic satin.

As you could see in several areas of the old solid Red Oak wood floor before we sanded it, some areas had water stains. Those water stains were very hard to see after the wood floor had been stained and refinished.

The homeowners were absolutely thrilled with the way their floors looked. Dan’s Floor Store works hard on each and every project to have happy customers.
