Installing Winter Oak plank flooring in Nocatee

Some Dan’s Floor Store flooring projects cover large areas of flooring in a home or business. Others may focus on one or two rooms, or a staircase or more. These homeowners, live in the Coastal Oaks community of Nocatee. They contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to replace the old carpeting in the second floor of their home with Oak wood flooring.

Our clients chose 7″ wide engineered Winter Oak plank flooring from the Vintage collection by Mohawk for this home improvement.

First we removed 1,600 square feet of old carpeting. In one of the photos, looking over the banister, you can see the Oak plank flooring on the first floor. The new Oak flooring will continue that look on the second floor.

Next we leveled the second floor plywood subfloor to prepare it for the Oak plank flooring installation, by sanding and hand scraping any high spots.

Our crew started installing the Winter Oak plank flooring from the top of the stairs, running the planks front to back like downstairs. We used flooring straps to hold the wide planks in place during installation.

The banister was much higher than the flooring. So, we milled down custom trim pieces to frame the base of the banister. Our crew also made custom trim for the bathroom doorways.

Such a beautiful area! Lots of wildlife! We saw a gator and two red tail hawks while we were there. Here are some photos from the back yard of the home.

Our clients told us they loved how their new Winter Oak plank floors look. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

FSC White Oak Flooring Install and Match Stain Stairs in Shearwater

After this homeowner had closed on his new home in the Shearwater community, near St. Augustine, Florida, he contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a flooring and stairway improvement project.

Our client wanted FSC certified White Oak flooring installed in his home in several rooms, in place of the carpeting, which had also been installed on the stairway. And he wanted Oak stair treads on his staircase, match stained for the same look as the new wood flooring. We can do that!

Contractor grade carpeting usually lasts several years and then begins to break down. When the carpeting breaks down, it retains more dirt and pollen, and little pieces of fiber from the carpet break off and go into the air in the home as lint. (And nobody needs more lint in their home!)

We began this project by removing 10,000 square feet of carpeting from the home, from spaces including 3 bedrooms, a loft living room, and the stairway and landing.

Our client had selected FSC certified, 7″ wide, oil finished White Oak flooring, Brushed Patina, Root by Tesoro. An FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits.

After leveling the subfloors, we applied Bostik’s Green Force zero VOC adhesive for installing the White Oak flooring planks.

Creating a matching stain for the solid White Oak stair treads took some experimenting. Dan’s Floor Store is experienced in match staining wood. Matching the look with stain is sometimes more challenging. Even though this was a hard wood flooring color to mimic, by mixing different ones, Dan was able to create a matching stain in about 10 minutes! We are very proud of the stain match!

For this project, we used Ribio Monocoat, a No VOC oil coating. The final combination of Bourbon, Dark Oak , Oyster, Ash Grey, and Stone Ribio Monocoat stain colors resulted in an impeccable visual match for the Oak stair treads to the newly installed White Oak flooring.

Our customer was absolutely, positively thrilled with his new FSC Certified White Oak floors and match stained staircase! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

The old wood flooring.

Our client selected engineered, 5″ wide White Oak flooring, from the Diamonds Forever collection by UA Floors.

First our crew removed the old wooden flooring.

Then we did a massive amount of leveling on the concrete slab subfloor, to properly prepare it for the new 5″ wide White Oak flooring.

Time to install the new wood flooring! We installed all of the 5″ wide White Oak flooring running front to back in the home. This was the opposite direction that the wood flooring had been installed prior. We used Bostik Green Force adhesive for this job.

Before we started this job, our crew moved all of the client’s furniture out, and then replaced it after. And we installed all new shoe molding with the new White Oak flooring. Needless to say, our customer was thrilled with his new White Oak floors, and he also gave us a great Google review!

Engineered White Oak Hardwood Flooring Installation – Hammock Beach FL

Engineered White Oak flooring - installedAs part of a new home construction project, Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted to install 1,600 square feet of engineered White Oak hardwood flooring. And this flooring was also installed on the stair frame, to create a matching staircase. The home is located in the northern part Hammock Beach, Florida.

The homeowners chose 7 1/2″ wide by 5/8″ thick White Oak flooring in random lengths. This flooring is made by Sawgrass Hills, in the color named Malaga. Our crew did quite a bit of a leveling of the concrete slab subfloor, as in all jobs. We prepare the substrate so that the flooring which we install lays level across it. A leveled subfloor means there will be no hollow spots under your new flooring. Next our crew installed the White Oak flooring using Bostik Green Force Adhesive and Moisture Control Membrane.

We covered the stair frame with the same White Oak flooring and stair nosing, for a matching look. The stair treads that our crew made feature mitered returns for a nice, finished look.

Needless to say the clients and our builder we did the job for were ecstatic with the outcome. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Installing Wide White Oak Flooring for Fernandina Beach Yoga Studio

A lady in Fernandina Beach called Dan’s Floor Store because the bamboo flooring in her Yoga Studio was failing. Solid bamboo wood flooring is nothing but a problem flooring for Florida!

Our client decided to replace the bamboo with a wide White Oak flooring.

First our crew removed all of the bamboo flooring.

Next. we had to do a massive amount of leveling! The concrete slab subfloor was covered in dips. 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!

Our crew installed a beautiful European wide White Oak flooring from the BELROSE collection by Azur Reserve.

The oak planks are 9 1/2” wide x 5/8” thick, with a 4mm sawn face; it is an absolutely stunning wood floor product! We used Bostik’s GreenForce adhesive for the installation. We have confidence in this proven no VOC adhesive, which includes an effective moisture barrier membrane. Because these are wider wood planks, we used special flooring straps to hold the planks in place during installation. Then our Dan’s Floor Store crew finished the job by installing vinyl baseboards.

Needless to say our client was thrilled with the outcome of her new White Oak wood flooring for her yoga studio! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Forest Accents Ardesia XWA Ponte Vedra Beach homeowner contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install 1,500 square feet of White Oak flooring in their home.

Our client selected 7 1/2″ wide, engineered French/German White Oak (Ardesia XW) wood flooring, made by Forest Accents, from their Euro Textures line.

As can be seen in the following photos, we did a massive amount of leveling on the concrete slab subfloor prior to this wood flooring installation.

Our crew used Bostik Pro Cure adhesive to accomplish the French/German White Oak flooring installation.

We finished this flooring project out with shoe molding to match the baseboard. A hallway was installed on the diagonal, for added visual effect. And our crew also sanded, stained and refinished the lower existing stair tread to match the new wood flooring.

Sand and Finish Engineered White Oak Flooring and Stairs- Crescent Beach

Beach view from the project home.This home had been damaged during Hurricane Irma, in the fall of 2017.
These Crescent Beach community homeowners (in St. Augustine, Florida) called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to restore their water damaged wood floor and staircase.

During the storm, wind and water came in through the windows and doors of the home. You can see some of the water damaged wood flooring and stairs in these photos.

Our crew began working this project by drying out the wet subfloor with dehumidifiers and high powered fans. Then our crew repaired over 500 square feet of engineered White Oak flooring (weave-in repairs with new White Oak flooring).

To restore the wood flooring and staircase, we sanded and hand scraped the edges of:

  • 2,000 square feet of White Oak flooring
  • 30 stair treads
  • 8 stairway newel posts
  • 80 linear feet of stair railing

The engineered White Oak flooring had a tough aluminum oxide finish. Our crew used a lot of sandpaper to go through all the stages of sanding the wood flooring to prepare it for refinishing.

It takes a lot of sandpaper to remove the tough, aluminum oxide finish on wood flooring.

We applied Bona oil-modified DriFast Sealer to the sanded wood.

Then our crew buffed between each of the next coats and applied Bona Woodline oil-modified, polyurethane Satin finish for a tough protective coat and slight amber color to enhance the natural tone of the wood.

Our clients were very happy to see how nice their floors and staircase looked when restored, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Engineered White Oak Wood Flooring Installation – Palencia Country Club

When owners were ready to replace the carpeting in the master bedroom and office of their Palencia home, they called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate.

Closeup - solid white oak wood flooringThese clients liked the engineered White Oak wood flooring that they already had installed in their main living room; a product of LM flooring. Since we carry LM flooring in our store, we ordered the same exact flooring for the master bedroom and office of their home.

The first day of this project, we tore out the old carpeting in the two selected areas of the home.

The same day, our crew did the floor leveling using quality Bostik products. Floor leveling is required on almost every wood floor installation project, to create a flat surface, which decreases hollow areas beneath the wood flooring planks, to minimize damage to the wood and maximize the flooring life.

The next day, our Dan’s Floor Store crew installed all the new engineered White Oak wood flooring, about 400 square feet of it.

And on our last day on the job site, we finished the project out with shoe molding all around the new wood floors and helped move the client’s furniture back in place.

Our clients were very happy with their new engineered White Oak wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Stores always likes to have happy clients.

White Oak Character Grade Flooring Install – Palencia

Wire brushed white oak character grade wood flooring installedHome owners in Palencia Golf and Country Club community wanted to replace about 1,100 square feet of tile flooring in their home with White Oak Character Grade Flooring. So they contacted Dan’s Floor Store of Ponte Vedra 904.887.8303 for this home improvement project.

Our clients selected 9/16″ thick x 7 1/2″ wide wire brushed White Oak character grade wood flooring with a natural appearance, by Naturally Aged Flooring.

First we removed the existing tile flooring.  The concrete slab subfloor of the home required an immense amount of leveling (as we have found to be a usual necessity) after the tile removal was completed.

Dan’s Floor Store cares about our wood flooring installations. We want to make sure that the new wood flooring lays flat with no hollow spots beneath. Leveling will help the wood flooring last longer. And leveling also helps the wood flooring hold up well during future sanding (for refinishing). We take pride in all of our work so we routinely level all substrate prior to wood flooring installations like this. We finished this job by installing shoe molding, and thresholds at the doorways where the new wood flooring met the tiled and carpeted floors in adjacent rooms.

This tile flooring removal and oak wood flooring installation project took our Dan’s Floor Store crew about a week to complete.

Our clients are very pleased with their new White Oak Character grade flooring, and Dan’s Floor Store really likes having happy clients.

Professionally installed new wood floors (whether solid wood, engineered wood, or laminate), or refinished the wood flooring in your home or business office will improve its looks and value. Give Dan’s Floor Store a call 904.887.8303 to make an appointment for a free consultation and estimate.

Wire Brushed Oak Flooring Installation – Nocatee

Snow Cap wire brushed White Oak flooring by Naturally Aged Flooring.This Dan’s Floor Store wire brushed Oak flooring residential installation project took place in a home in the Twenty Mile Village community in Nocatee. Florida.

The first phase of this project was removing all of the floor tile from the kitchen area, and all of the carpeting in the home.

Next we had to level the entire concrete slab subfloor after (as is our standard practice) checking for any moisture issues since it was a new poured slab. (The moisture content of the slab dictates the selection of leveling material used for the job. Moisture coming up from the concrete subfloor can damage wood flooring.)

We had to do quite an extensive amount of leveling on this job. Some leveling areas show up in the wood flooring installation photos that follow. Having a level surface for a wood flooring installation prevents damage to the wood flooring and helps the wood flooring last much longer.

Our clients selected an engineered, wire brushed, White Oak wood flooring made by Naturally Aged flooring, called Snow Cap. This wire brushed Oak flooring is 1/2″ thick x 7 1/2″ wide and comes in random lengths, from 2′ to 6′, with white stain within the soft wood grain. From the Naturally Aged Flooring photo of this character grade White Oak flooring, you can see it has a natural looking white tone without so much character in the flooring to make it look too rustic.

Our clients are very pleased with their new wire brushed Oak flooring installation, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients.

New wood floors (whether solid wood, engineered wood, or laminate), or refinishing the wood flooring in your home or business office will improve its looks and value. Give Dan’s Floor Store a call 904.887.8303 to make an appointment for a free consultation and estimate.
