Sand and Finish Heart Pine Flooring Repair – St. Augustine, FL

The owner of a home on the Intracoastal Waterway in St. Augustine had some water damage to the Heart Pine flooring in his kitchen and living room areas.

The homeowner replaced the damaged Heart Pine wood flooring himself. And then he was referred (by one of our prior clients) to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to sand and finish his wood floors.

Our crew sanded the old flooring and new flooring together. To begin, we had to make several angle cuts with rough sandpaper, due to the tough old finish on the wood floors. Next our crew sanded the floors with fine sand paper, buffed the floors, and then hand scraped all the corners.

We sealed the floor with Bona DriFast Sealer. Our crew buffed the floors between the first and second coats of Sealer.

Then we finished the Heart Pine flooring with 2 coats of Bona Woodline satin oil-modified polyurethane.

Our client was very happy with the results we achieved for his Heart Pine floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Refinishing Water Damaged Heart Pine Flooring – St. Augustine

The wood floors of many homes in St. Augustine, Florida were water damaged in the fall of 2016 during Hurricane Matthew. Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 has been actively working to help as many of these local homeowners as possible to restore their wood floors as part of getting on with their lives.

View of Mantanzas river from project home in St. Augustine, Florida.This water damaged heart pine flooring refinishing project took place in an older home on the Mantanzas riverfront in Saint Augustine. This home is one of many charming buildings along Avenida Menendez. The home is located just south of the landmark Bridge of Lions which crosses the Mantanzas River.

The home was build in the 1800s, and has retained the original heart pine floors.

Heart Pine wood is the heartwood, the dense, center-most wood of the long leaf pine tree, and it is very hard and strong, with beautiful coloring and figure patterns.

Water damaged old heart pine flooring needs repair and refinishingHurricane Matthew put the wood floors in this old home under water. We sanded and refinished the wood flooring in the home next door to this one about a month ago.

We have been contracted to refinish the water damaged wood floors in two more homes on this street, within three houses of one another in our schedule, due to the same storm.

The wood floors have had many months to dry out, prior to our arrival.

We sanded the water damaged heart pine flooring down to the bare wood. Even as old as this heart pine wood flooring is, heart pine can be very sappy. And the sap gums up our sanding papers. So we end up using a lot more sanding paper for heart pine refinishing jobs.

Our crew finished the sanded heart pine flooring with 3 coats of Bona Woodline satin polyurethane.

The refinished old heart pine flooring looks great!

Our customer was very pleased with the outcome of our refinishing work. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients.

Refinishing and Restoring Old Heart Pine Plank Flooring – St. Augustine

Refinished old heart pine plank flooringOwners of a home on the harbor in St. Augustine contacted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for one of our free consultations and estimates on refinishing and restoring their water damaged old Heart Pine flooring.

Living near the water, the wood floors in their home had gotten water damaged during hurricane Matthew in the fall of 2016.

The water damage made the old Heart Pine plank flooring in this home very unlevel, but we knew how to restore and refinish them.

The wood was so unlevel our Dan’s Floor Store crew had to sand the wood floors 5 times at a 45 degree angle to get it flat again. Then we could come back and sand with a cut straight with the wood grain for the final sanding.

These Heart Pine planks came from Longleaf Pine trees, which were overharvested in southeastern America in the 1900’s and can now only be reclaimed or river recovered.

The old Heart Pine plank flooring in this home is very, very old. We found the old, sanded flooring to be stunning looking, even before staining or finishing with polyurethane.

The homeowners wanted Dan’s Floor Store to refinish and restore their old Heart Pine plank flooring to match the same color as the stairs in the home (which had not been damaged by the water.

We chose Bona Rosewood stain as a good, blending match with the stairs.

Our crew finished this project with 3 coats of gloss Oil-Modified Polyurethane Woodline finish by Bona.

The old Heart Pine plank floors look great again, and our clients were very happy with the results of our work.
