Refinishing Old Wooden Floors and Stairs in Historic Avondale

Refinishing old wooden floors and stairs to their earlier elegance always gives a little more happiness to the Dan’s Floor Store crew when we are working with historically significant homes. We are helping to preserve our Country’s architectural history.

Home in Historic Avondale neighborhood of Jacksonville, FloridaDan’s Floor store has restored old wood floors in homes in historic homes from Jacksonville to St. Augustine. For this project, we were refinishing wood floors and stair treads in the historic Avondale community of Jacksonville, Florida.

Avondale was developed as an exclusive subdivision of the Riverside neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida in the summer of 1920. Many of the Avondale homes were built in the Mediterranean Revival style.

This wood floor and stairs refinishing project consisted of sanding and refinishing:

– 1750 square feet of old Heart Pine wood flooring upstairs

– face-nailed White Oak flooring that was decoratively bordered by natural Walnut strip downstairs

– one room of old Heart Pine downstairs

– old Heart Pine stair treads

Here are some photos of the old wooden floor and stair treads, before we refinished them.

These are photos taken during sanding, then hand scraping, and finally applying new finish to the old wood floors and stair treads.

After thoroughly sanding all of these wood surfaces, we applied Bona DTS waterborne sealer  for the first coat. Then, after the Bona sealer had thoroughly dried, we applied two coats of Bona Traffic HD satin for the final two coats of finish.

And here are photos of the refinished wooden floors and stair treads. Our clients were very happy with their refinished wood flooring and stair treads. And Dan’s Floor Store is very happy when our clients like our work.
