View of extension on back / river side of project home.Homeowners on CR 13 in St. Augustine contracted Dan’s Floor Store to help with their flooring, as part of their home improvement project.

They were adding an extension on the rear of their riverfront home, and wanted to extend the quarter sawn solid White Oak flooring inside.

There was no leveling required for this job, because the wood flooring was installed directly to the subfloor. It was a nailed down installation. (We used our Woodwise White Oak test kit to verify the existing wood flooring was white oak.) Our crew started work by cutting weave in pattern into the ends of the existing White Oak flooring planks. This will create a continuous look to the pattern of the wood flooring.

After removing the cut out wood, we began weaving in the White Oak flooring planks. and installing the unfinished, solid White Oak quarter sawn select flooring by Oakcrest Lumber.

Our floor sander vacuum filled up 7 bags with sawdust while rough sanding the new quarter sawn White Oak flooring, and the finish from the old White Oak plank floor.

Our crew finished the quarter sawn White Oak flooring with three coats of tough and durable Bona Woodline satin polyurethane.

These clients told us that we had achieved just the look they wanted for their home renovations, with the new and refinished White Oak flooring. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Sand, Stain and Finish White Oak Flooring – North Vilano Beach

For this home improvement project, our Dan’s Floor Store crew was called to a home in North Vilano Beach. The homeowners wanted their wire brushed 5″ White Oak flooring stained to match the look of their wooden stairs treads. We can do that!

After closing off the portion of the home where we would be working on their floors with ZipWall Dust Barrier System, we sanded and hand edged the White Oak flooring down to bare wood.

Our crew applied a light spray of water to “pop” the White Oak wood grain. Then we selected and applied a 50/50 combination of Bona stains; Bark and Red Mahogany to achieve the matching look on the floors.

We finished the match stained wood floors with Pallmann Pall-X Color, color sealer, followed by 2 coats of Pallmann Pall-X Power Finish, satin water borne polyurethane.

Our customers were very happy to see their color matched White Oak wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

Refinishing Old Wooden Floors – Jacksonville Beach

Refinishing the wood floors in your home or business is an opportunity to give your place a new look, and that’s exactly what these clients did for their Jacksonville Beach home.

Whitened old wooden floorTheir home was built in the 1950’s, with a medium brown stain applied throughout the home. Our clients had a color in mind for their floor prior to my arrival to meet with them and provide an estimate for this project. Just knowing what they wanted prior to our meeting was very helpful. They told me that they wanted to make their wood floors as white as possible. To achieve this look, I chose:

After our crew rough sanded the medium brown stain off the wooden flooring, the species became distinguishable. The wood flooring in most of the home was a mix of Red and White Oak. And this flooring was also a mix of different grades, ranging from Number 1 common to Clear grade. The kitchen floor was an entirely different specie from the rest of the house – Knotty Heart Pine.

We went through all of the stages of sanding on these floors. We had to start with 36 grit sand paper (for the rough cut). Then we went to 50 grit (intermediate cut). Next we used 100 grit (fine cut). After this sanding, along with hand scraping all the corners of the rooms, we buffed the flooring out using 100 grit with the Bona Multidisk.

The next step in refinishing these old wooden floors was “popping the grain” of the wood by rubbing the floor with water dampened cloths. Popping the grain of the wood flooring raises the grain to allow a stain to penetrate deeper into the wood. This step of popping the grain is a MUST with a white stain, because of how pigmented this color is.

Then our crew applied Bona White, then 3 coats of Bona Nordic, followed by a final coat (after buffing the floor smooth) of Bona Traffic HD extra matte.

We are proud to say that our clients were elated with the transformation of their old wooden floors, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Brushed European White Oak Flooring Installation – St. Augustine

Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was called to help with a home improvement project in St. Augustine, Florida, right across from the World Golf Village King and Bear golf course.

Wire brushed European White Oak flooring installedFor this project, our clients were replacing their old carpets with wire brushed European White Oak flooring by Forest Accents flooring.

They chose the Canterbury pattern, a 3/8″ thick by 5″ wide, random length engineered wood floor with white stain into the wood grain and a darker, caramel brownish stain on top.

Very nice!

After removing the old carpeting, we did a moisture evaluation of the concrete slab with our concrete moisture meter. This is a routine precaution for Dan’s Floor Store, prior to wood flooring installations. A concrete slab subfloor with a high moisture content can damage wood flooring.

As is often the case when installing wood flooring on a concrete slab, to replace carpeting, we did a large amount of floor leveling. Having a leveled subfloor helps the wood flooring that we install have a longer service life.

Prior to installing the wood flooring planks, we popped a series of chalk lines to make sure the wood flooring installation runs square.

Our Dan’s Floor Store crew used Bostik Pro-Cure professional urethane adhesive to install the brushed European White Oak flooring on the concrete slab subfloor of the clients’ home.

We finished this project off by installing T moldings around the tile area and shoe molding against the baseboards.

This job was another great wood flooring installation for Dan’s Floor Store! And our clients were very happy with their new wood flooring, too!

White Oak Character Grade Flooring Install – Palencia

Wire brushed white oak character grade wood flooring installedHome owners in Palencia Golf and Country Club community wanted to replace about 1,100 square feet of tile flooring in their home with White Oak Character Grade Flooring. So they contacted Dan’s Floor Store of Ponte Vedra 904.887.8303 for this home improvement project.

Our clients selected 9/16″ thick x 7 1/2″ wide wire brushed White Oak character grade wood flooring with a natural appearance, by Naturally Aged Flooring.

First we removed the existing tile flooring.  The concrete slab subfloor of the home required an immense amount of leveling (as we have found to be a usual necessity) after the tile removal was completed.

Dan’s Floor Store cares about our wood flooring installations. We want to make sure that the new wood flooring lays flat with no hollow spots beneath. Leveling will help the wood flooring last longer. And leveling also helps the wood flooring hold up well during future sanding (for refinishing). We take pride in all of our work so we routinely level all substrate prior to wood flooring installations like this. We finished this job by installing shoe molding, and thresholds at the doorways where the new wood flooring met the tiled and carpeted floors in adjacent rooms.

This tile flooring removal and oak wood flooring installation project took our Dan’s Floor Store crew about a week to complete.

Our clients are very pleased with their new White Oak Character grade flooring, and Dan’s Floor Store really likes having happy clients.

Beachy Look White Oak Flooring Installation – St. Augustine

Dan’s Floor Store was called by a previous client living in Davis Shores in St. Augustine, Florida to install some new wood flooring. We had refinished his wood floors, sanding and staining them during our prior visit. Then Hurricane Matthew came through and the floors in his home ended up under 17 inches of water!

His old flooring had to be removed along with the subfloor, drywall, doors and baseboards. All are new because of the hurricane’s water damage.

Beachy look White Oak flooring being installedFor his new wood flooring , our client selected an engineered wood flooring product made by Real Wood Floors, the Vintage Loft collection, color name Foundry.

  • These are 8 1/2inches wide by 5/8inches thick random length planks, up to 7 feet long with 80 percent of lengths to be long boards.
  • It also boasts a 4mm top and has a distinctive look with lines against the grain to add to the already wire brushed texture on this White Oak flooring.

Dan’s Floor Store crew prepared the new plywood subfloor by edging down the seams of the plywood sheets. The edged seams makes it possible for the new wood flooring to lay flat across subfloor. You can see the edged subfloor sheets in in some of the project photos.

We used Bostik’s GreenForce adhesive, a Zero VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) adhesive, for this job.

Dan’s Floor Store uses special flooring straps to hold these White Oak wood planks together during installation, due to the width of the planks.

The White Oak wood flooring in the Foundry color shows shades of grey, silver, and black, to exemplify a beachy modern flooring look.

Our client was very pleased with their new beachy look white oak wood floors. We are glad to have clients that like our work. Many of our previous clients recommend us to their family and friends for wood floor installations, wood floor refinishing, and tile and stone work. Always nice to have clients who appreciate your work and introduce more potential clients to you.

New Solid White Oak Plank Flooring in Deerwood Country Club

Following one of our free wood flooring consultations and estimates, Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to install new solid wood plank floors in a home in the gated Deerwood Country Club community in Jacksonville, Florida.

New solid White Oak select plank flooringThis project consisted of installing solid White Oak plank select floors from Shamrock Plank Flooring in three upstairs bedrooms. The clients chose random width planks for two of the rooms (3″, 6″, and 8″ wide) and 2 1/4″ wide planks in the third room, to be congruent with the width of the wood plank flooring in the hall and master bedroom.

Following after installation, we sanded the new White Oak plank flooring to level the floors and prepare them for staining and finishing.

We applied a neutral DuraSeal stain with oil base sealer, and then followed with two coats of Bona Traffic Satin for a durable, elegant finish.

White Oak with White Stain – Plantation Country Club

Installed wire brushed engineered white oak floor with white stainDuring one of our Dan’s Floor Store free consultations, a couple living in the Plantation Country Club community in Ponte Vedra, Florida asked us to help give their home a more beachy style.

We suggested wire brushed 7 1/2′ wide White Oak engineered wood flooring from LW Flooring with a white stain for the 3 bedrooms they were wanting to renovate, which has been a popular look over the last few years for a “beach house look” in local Florida homes.

The couple liked the look and asked us to install the new flooring in 3 of their bedrooms, amounting to nearly 1000 square feet of White Oak engineered wood flooring to be installed and stained.

Here are some photos that show the bedrooms prior to installation of the new wood flooring.

And here is the White Oak engineered wood flooring installed. We “popped” the grain of the new wood flooring with water, to achieve better penetration of the white stain, for a better visual effect.
