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!

Water Damaged Pine Floor Refinishing – Historic St. Augustine

Owners of a home in historic St. Augustine, called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation on their water damaged pine wood floor. The home is located just south of the Bridge of Lions, on the Avineda Menendez, which is right on the Mantanzas riverfront.

In the fall of 2016, Hurricane Matthew caused water damage to the wood floor in this and many other homes in St. Augustine that are near the water.

After looking at their water damaged pine floor, we told the homeowners their old pine floors could be saved. Our Dan’s Floor Store crew could repair and refinish them for years more useful life.

This is the fifth home on this street in which we have refinished the wooden floors, after they were water warped and damaged by hurricane Matthew.

Getting an early start on the day’s work, our crew was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise over the Mantanzas riverfront.

The project home has one room with a floor of Southern Yellow Pine. A majority of the wooden floors were Heart Pine, original from circa late 1800s. We had to repair several areas of wood flooring. Our Dan’s Floor Store team began sanding the wooden floors at a 45 degree angle to the grain several times to get them flat again. After we had the wood floors flat, we sanded them with the grain to prepare them for finishing.

We added an orange tint stain to the repaired areas, to get them to visually match the adjacent Heart Pine flooring.

To finish and protect these old pine wood floors, our crew first applied a coat of oil modified Bona DriFast Sealer Then we applied two coats or Bona Woodline Polyurethane for a tough protective coat with a slight amber tone.

Our clients were very happy to see how nice their old pine wood floors look now. And Dan’s Floor Store loves to have happy clients!

Pine Wood Flooring Refinish – Downtown Jacksonville FL

refinished heart pine knotty yellow pine wood flooringOne of our prior Dan’s Floor Store clients called us 904.887.8303 to refinish (“sand and finish”) the wood flooring in a place west of downtown Jacksonville, Florida.

The project wood floor was about 500 square feet in area. The floor was a combination of Heart Pine and Knotty Yellow Pine wood.

Some of the pine wood flooring had been painted, so we had to “cut” (sand) the wood flooring at a 45 degree angle. Then our crew came back and sanded the pine wood flooring with the grain to prepare it for finishing.

We have found that we get best results with all heart pine flooring when we use Bona DriFast Sealer (oil modified), followed with Bona Woodline Polyurethane satin for second and third coats of finish.

This is the fifth job we have done for this customer and he was very happy with the outcome.

Refinishing Old Heart Pine Floors – Springfield

Old heart pine wood flooring refinishedThis Dan’s Floor Store wood floor refinishing project took place in downtown Jacksonville, Florida, in the historic Springfield neighborhood.

The home was circa 1913, with the original flooring, old Heart Pine floors.

Some of the old wood floors were covered with so much paint and carpet glue, they did not resemble wood flooring when our crew arrived on site.

We also refinished the old wooden stair treads.

First some of the old Heart Pine flooring planks were damaged and had to be replaced, using by weaving-in new wood planks.

Following weave-in repairs, we sanded 1225 square feet of the old Heart Pine floors and the stair treads.

Then we finished the wood flooring with 3 coats of Bona Oil Modified Satin to keep the authenticity of this rustic old floor.

This job required lots of sandpaper and time to complete, and the results are stunning! The homeowner was thrilled with the outcome of this Dan’s Floor Store old wood floor refinishing project.

Refinishing Old Wooden Floors and Stairs in Historic Avondale

Refinishing old wooden floors and stairs to their earlier elegance always gives a little more happiness to the Dan’s Floor Store crew when we are working with historically significant homes. We are helping to preserve our Country’s architectural history.

Home in Historic Avondale neighborhood of Jacksonville, FloridaDan’s Floor store has restored old wood floors in homes in historic homes from Jacksonville to St. Augustine. For this project, we were refinishing wood floors and stair treads in the historic Avondale community of Jacksonville, Florida.

Avondale was developed as an exclusive subdivision of the Riverside neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida in the summer of 1920. Many of the Avondale homes were built in the Mediterranean Revival style.

This wood floor and stairs refinishing project consisted of sanding and refinishing:

– 1750 square feet of old Heart Pine wood flooring upstairs

– face-nailed White Oak flooring that was decoratively bordered by natural Walnut strip downstairs

– one room of old Heart Pine downstairs

– old Heart Pine stair treads

Here are some photos of the old wooden floor and stair treads, before we refinished them.

These are photos taken during sanding, then hand scraping, and finally applying new finish to the old wood floors and stair treads.

After thoroughly sanding all of these wood surfaces, we applied Bona DTS waterborne sealer  for the first coat. Then, after the Bona sealer had thoroughly dried, we applied two coats of Bona Traffic HD satin for the final two coats of finish.

And here are photos of the refinished wooden floors and stair treads. Our clients were very happy with their refinished wood flooring and stair treads. And Dan’s Floor Store is very happy when our clients like our work.
