Refinishing Solid White Oak Floors and Stairway – Atlantic Beach

This Atlantic Beach homeowner wanted a beachy look to brighten this home, and contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to refinish and whiten his White Oak floors and stairway.

We began by sanding and hand scraping the edges of 2,600 square feet of solid White Oak hardwood flooring. The floors are a mixture of number one common and number two common. (Number 2 common has more color variations and knotting than number 1 White Oak hardwood flooring.) Our crew also sanded and hand scraped the 18 Oak stair treads in the home, to refinish them.

Our customer selected Bona White stain for his floors and stairway. We stained the White Oak floors and stairs after “popping” the wood grain with water to open them up for a deeper stain results.

Our crew began finishing these White Oak floors and stairs with two coats of Pallmann White Seal.

Then we applied a final coat of Pallmann Pure, to achieve the very low sheen floors and stairs that our client wanted.

Our client was thrilled to see how our crew had achieved the beachy look they wanted for their solid White Oak hardwood floors and stairs. Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand and Finish Oak Flooring in St. Augustine Beach

View out the window - St. Augustine Beach.This job took place in St. Augustine Beach. The homeowners were moving here from Pittsburgh and Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was able to squeeze this job into our busy schedule for some new Floridians.

Their floors are number 1 Red Oak with number 2 White Oak flooring planks peppered in here and there. We have also seen this mixture of Red and White Oak planks in flooring in some other homes built in the 1950s.

Our clients wanted a bare/naked wood look for their floors. Pallmann has a product that helped us achieve that look, so our clients asked us to refinish their Oak stair treads to match their Oak floors.

Here are some photos of the Oak floors and stairway, before our crew started work.

We sanded the old, oil modified polyurethane finish off, and hand scraped the edges of the Oak floors and stair treads.

Our crew coated these Oak floors and stair treads with Pallmann Natureseal and Pallmann Pure; companion sealer and finish for giving the bare/naked wood look to the flooring. The result it the look of a freshly sanded Oak floor, but the floor has 3 coats of protection.

This Pallmann finish combination is amazing – the dry look is so clear, more dull than an ultra matte, and it is in trend with the vibe of this St. Augustine Beach house!

Sand, Stain, and Finish Wood Flooring at Matthew’s Restaurant in San Marco

Matthew's Restaurant of San Marco, in Jacksonville, FloridaMatthew’s Restaurant in San Marco, in Jacksonville, has been recognized as one of Northeast Florida’s most distinctive restaurants since its opening in 1997.

Chef Matthew of Matthew’s Restaurant, and Dan DiCarlo, owner of Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 have been friends for over 25 years.

The Restaurant was being closed for a week for renovations under a tight timeline, and Chef Matthew called Dan to refinish (sand, stain, and finish) the bar area Oak wood flooring.

Our crew started work at 5AM, sanding the bar floor with rough paper. Then we sanded the Oak floor with fine paper, hand scraped the corners and palm sanded all the ends to eliminate any sanding marks. Next our crew buffed the job smooth.

To achieve a deep stain, we “popped” the wood flooring grain with water applied with damp cloths.

We applied Bona Ebony stain. Our crew applied durable Pallmann products – one coat of Pallmann clear, followed by one coat of Pallmann Power ultra matte finish.

Two days later, after the bar area had been painted, we buffed down the job and put a final coat of Pallmann 98 ultra matte.

Matthew and his staff were thoroughly pleased with our performance and the beautiful wooden bar floor job we left! And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!
