Acacia Wood Flooring Installation in Historic Riverside

This flooring project was subcontracted to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 by a local residential renovation contractor.

Solid Acacia wood flooring - installed.We were contracted to install 3/4″ thick, 4 3/4″ wide, random length, hand scraped solid Acacia wood flooring, color Golden Topaz, by Timber Harvest flooring over multiple layers of flooring that was over 100 years old.

  • The builder provided this solid Acacia flooring.
  • This home is located in the historic Riverside area of Jacksonville, Florida.

The old subflooring was bowed and wavy in various areas. Our crew used Bostik Grip-N-Shield adhesive for this project.

  • Some areas required adhesive and wood shimming. In order to get the maximum contact and ensure a solid bond between the new wood flooring and the wavy and bowed wooden subfloor, we also placed boxes of wood flooring on top of the freshly laid Acacia planks.
  • Our crew started the job off the fireplace. For visual appeal and longer runs, we laid the Acacia planks front to back, as you walk in the front door.
  • Our crew did quite a few precision cuts during this solid Acacia wood flooring installation, such as around the cable through the floor, at the oversized white threshold plate at a bedroom door, and for multiple ventilation duct registers.

Our contractor and their clients were very pleased with our solid Acacia wood flooring installation work. No more bowed and wavy flooring in this home! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Brazilian Pecan Hardwood Flooring Installation – Palencia

Installed Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooringHomeowners in the Palencia community along the west bank of the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine were ready for a new look in their home. They contacted Dan’s Floor Store for their flooring home improvement project – to replace 1,000 square feet of their tile flooring with some exotic wood flooring.

Our clients chose a 5 1/4″ by 1/2″ thick engineered Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooring with a “chocolate” stain by Triangulo for their new wood floor. This wood flooring, like most Brazilian specie, has a large amount of variation from plank to plank. It makes a wild looking, beautiful floor.

First our Dan’s Floor Store crew had to remove the old tile flooring.

A large amount of cuts had to be made prior to the tile being removed.

Checking moisture content of the concrete slab subfloor, we found the tile had been set prior to the slab being fully cured. So next we leveled the concrete slab, applying Bostik Universal Primer and then Bostik SL-150 Leveling Compound. To protect the wood flooring we were about to install for this project, we abated the moisture in the slab with Bostik’s MVP (Moisture Vapor Protection).

We installed the Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooring with Bostik Greenforce hardwood flooring adhesive. Application of Bostik Greenforce provides additional moisture protection for the new wood flooring, as well as long term adhesive durability.

Our Dan’s Floor Store crew finished out this project by installing floor trim molding around the new Brazilian Pecan hardwood flooring and at the doorways, and then kicked the carpeting back at each of the doorways to the bedrooms.

Our customers were thrilled with their new hardwood flooring! And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy customers.
