Springfield Floor Repair, Sand and Finish

This wood flooring project took place in an old home in the historic Springfield neighborhood of downtown Jacksonville, Florida. Our customer initially wanted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to just sand and finish the old Heart Pine flooring, upstairs and downstairs. The further we got into this project, we found these old floors would need a lot of repairs.

There were subfloor issues that we found underneath the termite infested flooring boards. Our team had to repair the subfloor before we could start weaving-in the new Heart Pine flooring planks.

Our team used the weave-in method to install the new river recovered Heart Pine planks from Goodwin Heart Pine.

Then we sanded and stained the replaced flooring with a Bona stain. (Since the Heart Pine was river recovered, It was slightly lighter wood.) There were hundreds of Heart Pine boards that we removed and replaced.
.

Finally, we finished these Heart Pine wood floors with durable Pallmann finishes; 1 coat of Pallmann clear, then 2 coats of Pallmann power finish..

Our client was very pleased with these refinished floors. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Sand and Finish Old Wood Floors in Ponte Vedra, Florida

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was selected to refinish the old wooden floors in a home on Roscoe Boulevard in Ponte Vedra Beach.

Some of the wood floors in this project home were of White Oak with Walnut borders. Some of the floors were of Heart Pine.

This historic home was moved from the Riverside neighborhood to Roscoe Boulevard in Ponte Vedra, part of the way via a barge on the water (the St. Johns River and the Intracoastal Waterway).

A picture taken of the home, floating on the barge as it was being moved was displayed in one of the rooms in which we refinished the wood flooring.

After sanding the floors, and hand scraping the edges of all the sanded wood surfaces, our crew applied durable Pallmann Finish.

Our clients told us they loved how nice their refinished old wooden floors looked. Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Old Heart Pine floors, refinished by Dan's Floor Store.

Refinish Old Heart Pine Floors – Downtown Jacksonville FL

This Heart Pine wood floor refinishing project took Dan and his Dan’s Floor Store crew to an older home in downtown Jacksonville, Florida.

The flooring in the home was circa 1900 Heart Pine, and the old home was adorned with interesting historic photos of Jacksonville and surrounding areas.

The finish on these old wooden floors in the project home was worn with years of use, but did not need repairs (such as weaving in replacement Heart Pine planks).

We began by sanding the floors, and then hand scraping the edges of the wood flooring.

Our team finished these floors with a durable Pallmann finish.

The before and after photos show that these Heart Pine plank floors turned out beautifully for the age of the floors. Our clients were very pleased with their refinished old Heart Pine wood floors! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

This job took place in a home in the historic Lincolnville neighborhood of St. Augustine, Florida. Our clients contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303, wanting their Heart Pine wood floors refinished with a cool, whitewashed look.

We began this flooring improvement project by sanding and hand scraping the edges of the Heart Pine wood floors. This step removes the old finish and prepares the wood floors for the whitening sealer.

Our crew applied durable Pallmann products. We started with Pallmann Pall-X Whiteseal to achieve the whitewashed look our clients wanted.

Our crew applied two coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power. When that finish had fully cured, we buffed the wood floors down, and applied a final coat – Pallmann Pall-X Gold Ultra Matte.

Our clients told us they were thrilled with the new, cool look for their Heart Pine floors! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Sand and Finish Heart Pine flooring in Historic St. Augustine

Owner of a home on the harbor in St. Augustine, Florida, contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and finish their old, solid Heart Pine flooring. This is the 5th home on Avenida Menendez, in the historic area of St. Augustine, in which we have sanded and refinished their wooden floors.

Heart Pine is the heartwood of the long leaf pine tree. The wood is very hard and strong, with beautiful coloring and figure patterns.

Heart Pine Plank Flooring – Sand and Finish – Springfield

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 does flooring projects for residential and commercial clients, and for local building and renovation contractors. This is about the 10th job we have done for this client. It’s always nice when a prior client appreciates your work, and calls you with a new job!

This flooring project took place in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, in the historic Springfield neighborhood.

The home was built in the 1930s, and has existing Heart Pine plank flooring. Our client contracted us to sand and finish these old wooden floors.

Pre-Refinishing.

Our crew sanded the Heart Pine plank flooring, and hand scraped the edges.

Sanding.

Next we applied 1 coat of Bona dri-fast Sealer.

And then we finished these old Heart Pine floors with 2 coats of Bona Woodline satin oil-modified polyurethane.

Between application of the Bona finish coats, we screened these Heart Pine floors for proper bonding and to give the smoothest possible results.

When we screen wood flooring, we use a buffer and a mesh screen covered with an abrasive, instead of regular sand paper discs. Screening provides lighter abrasion to the floor finish, providing a good roughness that helps the new finish coat of polyurethane adhere properly.

Refinishing.

After seeing their refinished Heart Pine plank flooring, our customer was very happy! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand and Finish Old Heart Pine Wood Floors – San Marco

A home improvement and renovation project in a San Marco home led to a call to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to restore the old heart pine wood floors in the home.

Dan’s Floor Store crew has repaired and restored many old wood floors in the Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, and St. Augustine, Florida area.

These old heart pine wood floors are circa late 1800s. The wood was very beautiful, and ultra sappy. These old heart pine plank floors had not been refinished in over 100 years!

Our crew sanded and hand scraped the old floors.

Then we applied Bona Woodline Oil Modified Polyurethane finish.

You can tell by the before and after photos that these wood floors turned out beautifully for the age of the floors. Our client was very pleased with their refinished old heart pine wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Refinishing Old Wooden Floors – Jacksonville Beach

Refinishing the wood floors in your home or business is an opportunity to give your place a new look, and that’s exactly what these clients did for their Jacksonville Beach home.

Whitened old wooden floorTheir home was built in the 1950’s, with a medium brown stain applied throughout the home. Our clients had a color in mind for their floor prior to my arrival to meet with them and provide an estimate for this project. Just knowing what they wanted prior to our meeting was very helpful. They told me that they wanted to make their wood floors as white as possible. To achieve this look, I chose:

After our crew rough sanded the medium brown stain off the wooden flooring, the species became distinguishable. The wood flooring in most of the home was a mix of Red and White Oak. And this flooring was also a mix of different grades, ranging from Number 1 common to Clear grade. The kitchen floor was an entirely different specie from the rest of the house – Knotty Heart Pine.

We went through all of the stages of sanding on these floors. We had to start with 36 grit sand paper (for the rough cut). Then we went to 50 grit (intermediate cut). Next we used 100 grit (fine cut). After this sanding, along with hand scraping all the corners of the rooms, we buffed the flooring out using 100 grit with the Bona Multidisk.

The next step in refinishing these old wooden floors was “popping the grain” of the wood by rubbing the floor with water dampened cloths. Popping the grain of the wood flooring raises the grain to allow a stain to penetrate deeper into the wood. This step of popping the grain is a MUST with a white stain, because of how pigmented this color is.

Then our crew applied Bona White, then 3 coats of Bona Nordic, followed by a final coat (after buffing the floor smooth) of Bona Traffic HD extra matte.

We are proud to say that our clients were elated with the transformation of their old wooden floors, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!
