Sand, Stain, Finish Red Oak Flooring and Staircase – Fruit Cove

Saws set up on the back patio.This flooring and staircase project took Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to a home in the gated community called Bayside, in the Switzerland / Fruit Cove, Florida area.

Our clients selected unfinished, engineered, rotary peeled Red Oak flooring by Howell hardwood flooring for their home improvement project.

First our crew leveled the concrete slab subfloor, to prepare it for the new wood flooring.

Next we installed the new Red Oak flooring planks, lining them up to the existing lines of the old floor.

We sanded the Red Oak flooring and then “popped” the grain of the wood planks with water to open them up for better stain absorption.

Our crew stained the wood flooring with Bona Antique Brown stain.

Then we finished the wood flooring in this room with durable Pallmann products – one coat of Pallman Pall-X Clear sealer , then a coat of Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish. We buffed down the floor and applied a final coat of Pallmann Pall-X Power ultra matte finish. Our crew finished this room first, so that the grand piano could be moved into the room, and we could do the rest of the job.

We refinished the adjacent Red Oak floors in the home to match the new Red Oak flooring. This part of the job included weave-in repair of 10 damaged flooring planks.

Our crew also sanded and stained the stair treads to match, as well as the stair rail.

Our clients said they were impressed with our work and how nice the wood floors and stair cases looked. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Restoring Water Damaged Red Oak Flooring – Atlantic Beach

Refinished, water damaged red oak flooring - close upThe owner of a home on Beach Avenue in Atlantic Beach called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate, to restore their water damaged Red Oak flooring. Wind and water from Hurricane Irma had created a slight cupping of the wood floor at the front door. Also the homeowner did not like that he could not see the grain of the wood in his black stained wood floor.

(A close-up of the refinished Red Oak flooring is show above, right.)

We concluded that the prior floor man double or triple stained the wood floor to get the color that dark, a process which covered the grain of the wood entirely.

As our crew rough sanded the water damaged Red Oak flooring I could see that it was a 5″ wide, rotary peeled Red Oak flooring, from our experience dealing with wood flooring from a wide variety of vendors. I also noted the wood flooring had a mineral streak, and was made of a lower grade of wood, but we can work with that.

After sanding some of the floor, we put down a “pop grain” Dura Seal True Black stain sample, and it looked great! The wood grain in the flooring was clearly visible, and the color was just what the client wanted!

Applying stain to grain popped, sanded red oak flooringOur Dan’s Floor Store crew completed all of the sanding (and hand scraping the corners) of the floors. Then we “popped the grain” of the wood by rubbing the sanded wooden floor with water dampened cloths. Water from the damp cloths raises the grain of the wood, allowing the stain to penetrate deeper into the wood.

Next we applied the applied the Dura Seal True Black stain. We had to give the black stain extra dry time because that stain is super pigmented.

Our crew finished these floors with two coats of Bona Mega Clear HD satin (which eliminates an amber tint to the wood). We buffed the first two coats of Mega Clear HD to get a smooth surface. Then we applied a final finish coat of Bona Traffic HD satin for a super durable finish.

Our client was very happy with the new look for his wood floor. Before we even completed finishing his floor, our client had given me several referrals to his friends, for work on their wood floors. I can proudly say that our client was thrilled with his refinished wood floor.
