Engineered Hickory Hardwood Flooring Installation near St. Augustine

Dan's Floor Store showroom, Ponte Vedra, FloridaAfter a flood in the kitchen ruined their wood flooring, these homeowners called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate.

This wood flooring home improvement project took place in a home in Elkton Florida, just west of Saint Augustine, and off of County Road 207.

As part of the job, we were asked to remove the existing, water damaged wood flooring.

The whole 1,120 sq ft of existing wood flooring was removed by our crew in one day,

The next day we leveled the concrete slab.

And the next day, our crew started installing our clients’ new wood flooring.

 

Our clients had chosen an engineered Hickory hardwood flooring from the Villa Bocelli collection by Bella Cera in the Storico color.

This hardwood flooring comes in random widths and lengths, with a lot of variation in color and shade. Also this flooring is very unique with the saw marks against the grain of the wood. The semi-rough texture will help reduce visiblity of scratches.

We used Bostik’s Pro Cure adhesive to install this engineered Hickory hardwood flooring.

Instead of a t-mold at the tile, our crew used a header board, at our customer’s request.

All in all, our customers were very happy. They even wrote us a very nice Review. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy customers!

Engineered French Oak Flooring & Treads – Plantation Golf & Country Club PVB

Front view of the project home - Engineered French Oak flooring and stair tread installationDan’s Floor Store was contracted to install engineered French Oak flooring and stair treads in a new construction home in the Plantation Golf & Country Club community of Ponte Vedra Beach.
Boy, from this photo (taken when we went back for more photos) this is becoming such a beautiful home!

Our client selected 8″ wide, engineered French Oak flooring, from Bella Cera’s Villa Borghese collection.

We began by leveling the concrete slab subfloor on the first level. We had to use a large amount of floor leveler to get the concrete slab ready for our wood flooring. Upstairs, our crew went from room to room, sanding all of the plywood subfloor seams to achieve a level surface.

Then we installed 4,000 square feet of the hardwood French Oak flooring. We used flooring straps when installing this French Oak wood flooring, because of the width of the flooring planks.

Our crew also did the staircase, including two landings and 21 treads in the same French Oak flooring, using nosing and flooring for the stair treads. In all, this project took several weeks to complete

The new flooring and stair treads were covered for protection while the rest of the construction work finished.

We returned to the home several weeks later, when the construction work was completed, and our new flooring and stair treads were unveiled. Everything looked great, so we got some more photos of this wood flooring and stairs project.

 

 

Our client was very pleased with our work, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand and Finish Red Oak Wood Flooring – Ponte Vedra Beach

The new buyers of a home in Ponte Vedra Beach called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to for a free consultation.

Someone had previously applied stain over the top of the engineered, rotary peeled  Red Oak wood flooring in the home. The new owners thought the flooring looked really hideous, and they called Dan the Floor Man to come rescue them. After our consultation, the owners contracted our Store to sand, stain, and refinish their engineered Red Oak wood flooring.

Here are some photos of the existing Red Oak flooring:

Our crew started by sanding the engineered Red Oak wood flooring down to bare wood (as can be seen in the following photos).

Then we applied Bona Graphite stain. The transformation was beautiful!

After the stain was applied our crew applied three coats of Pallmann power ultra matte waterborne finish. This sand, stain, and finish job turned out exquisite!

Our clients were thrilled with the look of the refinished engineered, rotary peeled Red Oak wood flooring in their new home, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Engineered Maple Flooring Replacing Tile – Palencia

Palencia Golf and Country Club community homeowners called Dan’s Floor Store for our free consultation and estimate. They wanted to replace 1600 square feet of tile flooring that had been originally installed in their home with wood flooring. Home improvements can often improve the value of a home, as well as make it more enjoyable for the owners.

Maple flooring installedOur clients chose an engineered maple flooring made by Mirage; 6 1/4″ X 1/2″called Maple Peppermint, it has a grey color and is a very beautiful flooring.

Mirage is one of the best brands of engineered wood flooring in the industry. It is FSC certified wood flooring. The FSC stamp is the hardest stamp to get on wood flooring, because FSC is the Forestry Stewardship Council. That means that all of the wood comprised in the Mirage engineering wood flooring is eco sound and compliant to the highest standards.

Our crew had a lot of floor tile to remove. We put plastic film over cabinets and appliances, to protect them during tile removal.

Then we leveled the concrete slab sub floor. A level surface helps wood flooring last longer.

After leveling the slab we also had to seal the concrete with Bostik’s MVP (Moisture Vapor Protection) prior to installation. Sealer was required because the slab had tile put on it before it was fully cured. Not letting the concrete slab cure before installing tile traps the moisture between slab and tile. Dan’s Floor Store understands how this trapped moisture can penetrate and damage new wood flooring. It is our practice to check every concrete slab for trapped moisture prior to installation.

With the sub floor leveled, the installation of the engineered maple flooring progressed smoothly.

Needless to say this maple flooring job turned out really beautiful! Our clients were very pleased with the new look that the maple wood floors gave their home. And Dan’s Floor Store likes having happy clients!

Beachy Look White Oak Flooring Installation – St. Augustine

Dan’s Floor Store was called by a previous client living in Davis Shores in St. Augustine, Florida to install some new wood flooring. We had refinished his wood floors, sanding and staining them during our prior visit. Then Hurricane Matthew came through and the floors in his home ended up under 17 inches of water!

His old flooring had to be removed along with the subfloor, drywall, doors and baseboards. All are new because of the hurricane’s water damage.

Beachy look White Oak flooring being installedFor his new wood flooring , our client selected an engineered wood flooring product made by Real Wood Floors, the Vintage Loft collection, color name Foundry.

  • These are 8 1/2inches wide by 5/8inches thick random length planks, up to 7 feet long with 80 percent of lengths to be long boards.
  • It also boasts a 4mm top and has a distinctive look with lines against the grain to add to the already wire brushed texture on this White Oak flooring.

Dan’s Floor Store crew prepared the new plywood subfloor by edging down the seams of the plywood sheets. The edged seams makes it possible for the new wood flooring to lay flat across subfloor. You can see the edged subfloor sheets in in some of the project photos.

We used Bostik’s GreenForce adhesive, a Zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) adhesive, for this job.

Dan’s Floor Store uses special flooring straps to hold these White Oak wood planks together during installation, due to the width of the planks.

The White Oak wood flooring in the Foundry color shows shades of grey, silver, and black, to exemplify a beachy modern flooring look.

Our client was very pleased with their new beachy look white oak wood floors. We are glad to have clients that like our work. Many of our previous clients recommend us to their family and friends for wood floor installations, wood floor refinishing, and tile and stone work. Always nice to have clients who appreciate your work and introduce more potential clients to you.

Coastal Look European White Oak Wood Flooring Installation in PVB

Dan’s Floor Store was contacted by a homeowner in Turtle Shores, in south Ponte Vedra Beach, for one of our free flooring consultations and estimates.

The carpeting on her floor was installed in the 1980s, so it was ready for replacement. Most standard, contractor grade carpeting that is installed in new construction homes is only designed to last for 3 or 4 years before it begins to deteriorate and becomes harder to clean. She also wanted the tile flooring in her foyer replaced with wood flooring. We would install the new wood flooring on 900 square foot of her home.

European White Oak wood flooring installedOur client wanted new wood flooring to give her home a beachy look. She selected 1/2″thick by 7 1/4″ wide LM flooring engineered European White Oak wood flooring from the Saint Laurent collection with the Privas finish – a whitish grayish color stain for a very coastal and beachy look.

This project began with removing the client’s furniture from the selected areas of her home.

Then we installed new coastal look European White Oak wood flooring.

The client loved the coastal look we achieved with her new European White Oak wood flooring. And we are always happy when our clients are pleased with our work.
