Brazilian Cherry Wood Floor Refinishing in St. Augustine

Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to sand and refinish the wood floors in a home in Saint Augustine, Florida, near the marsh on Anastasia Island. We refinished all of the wood flooring in the home, some of which was Brazilian Cherry wood flooring, as featured in this article.

We sanded the wood floors, and finished them with three coats of polyurethane Bona Mega Clear Satin.

Between coats of finish, we screened (lightly sanded, not touching the actual wood) the floors to result in a smoother, thicker, deeper and richer looking protective polyurethane coating.

The Sanded, Screened and Recoated wood floors (including these Brazilian Cherry Wood floors) looked great and our clients were very pleased to see the results. We enjoy helping clients save some money while extending the life of their wood flooring.

Screening and Recoating Wood Floors and Stairs in Epping Forest

Beautiful Wood Floor after screening and re-coatingDan’s Floor Store was called to an elegant two story home in Epping Forest, for one of our Free consultations. We were asked if their 2,300 square feet of wood flooring should be refinished or replaced.

After inspecting the floors with the clients, we recommended a process called Screening and Recoating, a refinishing procedure for wood flooring that helps it last even longer. Based on our recommendation, the client asked us to also refinish the stair treads, for a refreshed look through their home.

From our experience, the finish on most wood floors has been scuffed by normal use after 3 to 5 years. Our Screening and Re-coating process restores the finish to like new, to last another 3 to 5 years.

The “Screening” process sands the wood flooring with clog-resistant sanding disks, removing the wood floor finish without cutting into the wood itself. Most commonly, a wood floor with a polyurethane finish coating is an excellent candidate for screening, because the polyurethane creates a non-penetrating plastic coating that actually sits on top of the wood flooring. We see better results when we screen a wood floor with a finish that is worn, scratched or dull but the wood beneath is not stained or damaged.

About 5 years ago, Dan’s Floor Store installed wood flooring in this home in the Sawgrass Country Club neighborhood. The client consulted Dan, asking what to do because the finish on their floors had become worn and scratched. They were thinking the wood flooring would need to be replaced. After we inspected their wood flooring, the client was very happy to learn that the floors could be screened and re-coated for a fraction of the cost (and time) of replacing their wood floors.

The client’s wood floors of both plank and parquet Red Oak flooring, with Early American stain by Minwax, turned out great. The client was very happy to see how nice their finished floors looked. Nice to be able to save the client some money while extending the life of their wood flooring.
