Hickory Flooring and Stairway Installed – Atlantic Beach

These Atlantic Beach clients contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to bring the warmth and charm of Hickory wood to the floors and stairway of their home.

They selected 5″ wide engineered, wire brushed Hickory Natural hardwood flooring by Mirage, with the DURAMATT finish.

The selection of this natural Hickory brings beautiful amounts of character and variance from plank to plank. These varied length planks encourage creativity in our installation crew, too!

(We also match stained Pine baseboards and shoe molding to the new Hickory flooring.)

For the stairway, we started by sanding the rough solid Hickory wood treads. Then our crew “popped the grain” of the wood treads with water, and wire brushed the treads to get the brushed effect seen on the Hickory flooring. We finished these solid Hickory stair treads with 3 coats of durable Pallmann finish.

These homeowners told us that they loved the look of their new Hickory floors and stairs! 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!

Sand, Stain and Finish White Oak Flooring – North Vilano Beach

For this home improvement project, our Dan’s Floor Store crew was called to a home in North Vilano Beach. The homeowners wanted their wire brushed 5″ White Oak flooring stained to match the look of their wooden stairs treads. We can do that!

After closing off the portion of the home where we would be working on their floors with ZipWall Dust Barrier System, we sanded and hand edged the White Oak flooring down to bare wood.

Our crew applied a light spray of water to “pop” the White Oak wood grain. Then we selected and applied a 50/50 combination of Bona stains; Bark and Red Mahogany to achieve the matching look on the floors.

We finished the match stained wood floors with durable Pallmann products Pall-X Color, color sealer, followed by 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power Finish, satin water borne polyurethane.

Our customers were very happy to see their color matched White Oak wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Matching Stained and Finished Red Oak Staircase in Ponte Vedra Beach

Ponte Vedra Beach homeowners called on Dan’s Floor Store for a special home improvement project. They wanted us to install new solid Red Oak staircase treads and new stair rail, and wanted the new stair rail and treads to have the look of their existing wood flooring – matching stained.

Dan’s Floor Store has found that it is much more efficient to sand, stain, and finish stair treads prior to installing them. After sanding the individual stair treads, our crew achieved the matching stained look on the Red Oak stair treads with a double stain process. We used quality Minwax stains :

  • the first stain was Red Mahogany
  • the second (top) stain was Honey

Then our crew finished each stair tread with 3 coats of durable Pallmann waterborne Power finish, ultra matte for long lasting protection. Pallmann is a German made finish, from a company that has been in business since 1904!

The stair rail was sanded, stained, and finished to match the stair treads and the wood flooring.

Then our crew installed the finished matching stained stair treads and rail.

Our clients were thrilled to see how nice their Red Oak staircase home improvement project turned out, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!
