Replacing Water Damaged Red Oak Flooring – St. Augustine

Sanded, stained, and refinished red oak plank flooringHomeowners contracted Dan’s Floor Store to replace water damaged red oak flooring after the lower floor of their home took on and was damaged by water during Hurricane Matthew last fall.

The water damaged the subflooring in some areas, as well as the wood flooring. Before we could install the new wood flooring, we tore out 650 square feet of plywood subfloor and water damaged Red Oak (solid) wood flooring. Then our Dan’s Floor Store crew installed new plywood subfloor, with moisture barrier to protect the Red Oak new wood flooring.

For this project, we replaced the water damaged red oak flooring with 2 1/4″ strip unfinished Red Oak number 1 Common by Shamrock Plank Flooring and weaved the new red oak planks into existing, undamaged flooring.

After allowing a few weeks for the new wood flooring to acclimate, we came back to sand and finish the floor.

Our clients took this as an opportunity to give the wood floors and stair treads of their home a new look. They wanted a dark brown color for their floors and stair treads.

First our Dan’s Floor Store crew sanded the wood flooring and stair treads in the home.

To achieve the look they wanted, we next popped the grain of the sanded wood. Our crew conditioned floor with wet rags prior to staining. Popping raises the grain of the wood to allow the stain to penetrate deeper in the wood thus making the color ten times darker than stain could be straight out of the can.

To achieve the dark brown wood color for our clients, we used DuraSeal Espresso stain, and it turned out fabulous.

Then, for a durable, long lasting finish, we applied Bona waterborne finishes (Bona Mega Clear HD Satin for first two coats, followed by Bona Traffic Satin for the final coat).

And then we trimmed out the job with new shoe molding and new stain matched thresholds at all exiting doorways.

Our clients were thrilled with the new look of their Red Oak wood floors and stair treads, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Rotary Sawn Red Oak Floor Repair Sand and Stain – Ponte Vedra Beach

Homeowners in Ponte Vedra Beach contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to help renovate the old floors in their home.

  • The home owners wanted to replace the tile in their foyer and carpet in the adjacent home office room with rotary sawn Red Oak wood flooring.
  • They also asked our recommendation for moisture damaged areas of their existing red oak wood flooring.

We started our work on this flooring project by removing the foyer tile and home office carpeting.

Most concrete subfloors require some leveling before we can install wood flooring planks and the subfloor slab in this home was no exception. The leveled surface of the concrete subfloor helps the wood flooring last longer.

We chose engineered, unfinished rotary sawn 2 1/4″ wide Red Oak plank flooring by Howell Hardwood Flooring for the foyer and home office, to perfectly mimic the existing flooring.

The existing wood flooring had a lot of moisture damage from prior pet urine stains so we recommended sanding and staining the new and existing wood flooring for a uniform look through the home. Our crew used a hand scraper to “pull” all the ends of the sanded planks, to eliminate any sanding marks on the wood floors.

We recommended a combination of coastal driftwood and gray stains by Bona for the home’s wood floors. Dan’s Floor Store crew applied three coats of the stain, which really helped to hide the moisture damage to the old wood flooring. We finished these sanded and stained wood floors with Bona Mega Clear HD.

These rotary sawn Red Oak plank floors turned out great; our clients are very happy with them. And Dan’s Floor Store likes having happy clients.

Screen and Tung Oil Recoat Oak Floors in Ponte Vedra Beach

Dan’s Floor Store works hard to make sure our client is happy with our wood flooring services and tile and stone services. We are very pleased and thankful that a lot of our business comes from repeat customers and clients’ referrals.

Red and White Oak wood floor, sanded and refinished with Tung oilDan’s Floor Store installed these wood floors in a home in Magnolia Hammock, off Neck Road in Ponte Vedra Beach many years ago. We used a mix of Red and White Oak, 100 year old reclaimed wood by Carlisle in varied widths; 5″, 6″, and 8″. The new wood flooring was then sanded and finished natural with four coats of Tung oil.

Our clients called us back to screen and recoat their wood floor with Tung oil. Periodic refinishing is a maintenance service for quality wood floors.

Tung oil comes from the Tung tree, and is the only coating we know of that is impermeable to water. It gives a natural, long-lasting finish to wood floors, and is environmentally friendly.

We found some pet stains in the clients’ floor. We scraped and sanded them out, then built up that area with a few coats of Tung oil.

Next we screened (sanded) the floor. And we finished the floor with two new coats of Tung oil.

These refinished Red and White Oak wood floors look great and Tung oil will keep them looking good for many more years.

Dan’s Floor Store loves to work for repeat clients! These customers are great people and we are proud to say they have been our clients for almost ten years. Life is good!

New Maple Flooring and Refinishing Red Oak Floor in Arlington

New Maple wood flooring installed with seams aligned on upper and lower levelsOur clients wanted some new wood flooring installed, and some existing wood flooring refinished, in their home on the marsh, just off of McCormick/Mt. Pleasant on Girvin Road, in the Arlington area of Jacksonville, Florida.

Existing carpeting and existing wood flooring was removed in order to install the new flooring. Then we leveled the concrete subfloor, in preparation for the new wood flooring.

The clients chose a 5″ wide, hand scraped engineered maple hardwood flooring from the Padova collection by Versini.

During the installation, we undercut the stone fireplace, and matched perfectly with the different colored baseboards and built-in cabinets’ kick plates.

We laid the new maple flooring on the lower elevation first, then we lined it up the seams of the new maple flooring planks on the higher elevation with the seams in the new flooring on the lower elevation.

  • It takes a little more time, a little more work, but aligning seams in adjacent levels of flooring like this reflect our attention to detail, to create a more appealing appearance of our finished work for our clients, and guests in their homes.

We sanded the existing red oak wood flooring to reveal its natural appearance. Then we stained it with Minwax Honey stain, and gave it three coats of Bona Mega Clear satin.

The whole project looks great and our customers love the colors of their new and refinished wood floors.
