Replacing Travertine with European White Oak flooring in St. Johns County

Earlier this year, Dan’s Floor Store replaced approximately 1200 ft.² of Travetine tile with new European White Oak wood flooring in a home on the river in St. Johns county, Florida.


New European White Oak plank flooringThe flooring that was chosen for this project is Vintage Loft by Real Wood Floors, a wire brushed European White Oak wood flooring with a lot of texturing and some beautiful knots and grain for character.

First the existing Travertine tile flooring was removed.

In order for the new solid wood flooring to come flush to the existing Travertine in adjoining rooms, we installed “header boards”. Header boards run perpendicular to the direction of the wooden floor planks. We had to make perfect cuts for a good fit and pleasing appearance, using the old wisdom, “Measure twice and cut once”.

The mud bed for the old Travertine tile was not level enough to properly support the new wood flooring, so we had to taper and feather different thicknesses of plywood subfloor to graduate with the rolling mud bed and properly prepare and level the area for the new wood flooring.

We used flooring straps to get the floor super tight. Some of the planks/boards were very long boards up to 8 foot long to be exact.

The new European White Oak wood plank flooring has a 4 mm sawn face and is coated with UV cured oil. This wood flooring is 8 3/4 inches wide by 5/8 inch thick. The final European White Oak wood flooring looks beautiful!
