Sand and Finish Old Heart Pine Wood Floors – San Marco

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 Heart Pine Floors in St. Augustine

Elegant antique solid Heart Pine wood floor after restorationAmong the many historic attractions in St. Augustine, Florida, there are some elegant old homes which reflect their own special charm. Some are public venues while others remain private residences.

We have been part of restoring several of these fine old St. Augustine private homes by refinishing their stately wood flooring to their earlier appearance.

Refinishing Fine Old Wood Floors in Historic Riverside

Refinished, beautiful solid hardwood floors in RiversideDan’s Floor Store was called to refinish the impressive old wood floors in one of the beautiful historic homes in the Riverside neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida.

 

This grand old house had some beautiful wood floors that just needed to be refinished to be enjoyed.

  • There are rift and quarter sawn solid White Oak flooring with Walnut feature strips in the common areas of the home.

 

  • The flooring to be refinished in the two bedrooms are of solid antique Heart Pine.

Showing how "Water Pop" darkens the effect of stain on the hardwood flooringAfter discussing the project with our clients, from our experience we concluded that for this job we would need to “pop” the grain of the wood with water prior to applying the stain.

This extra step allowed the stain to penetrate deeper, creating a deeper, darker tone.

This photo shows the same stain (dark walnut) on both samples, the darker one has been water popped which can definitely produce a deeper, darker color.

 

 

After sanding, these elegant solid hardwood floors were ready for staining and finishing. You can see the designs in the quartersawn solid White Oak hardwood flooring with rift-in Walnut feature strips better after sanding the floor, to prepare for refinishing.

During the coating and finishing part of the project, these elegant floors seem to shimmer.

The following photos show the beautiful results of professional refinishing on the old wood floors in this historic Riverside home. Durable, solid hardwood flooring that will last for years.
