Water Damaged Pine Floor Refinishing – Historic St. Augustine

Owners of a home in historic St. Augustine, called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation on their water damaged pine wood floor. The home is located just south of the Bridge of Lions, on the Avineda Menendez, which is right on the Mantanzas riverfront.

In the fall of 2016, Hurricane Matthew caused water damage to the wood floor in this and many other homes in St. Augustine that are near the water.

After looking at their water damaged pine floor, we told the homeowners their old pine floors could be saved. Our Dan’s Floor Store crew could repair and refinish them for years more useful life.

This is the fifth home on this street in which we have refinished the wooden floors, after they were water warped and damaged by hurricane Matthew.

Getting an early start on the day’s work, our crew was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise over the Mantanzas riverfront.

The project home has one room with a floor of Southern Yellow Pine. A majority of the wooden floors were Heart Pine, original from circa late 1800s. We had to repair several areas of wood flooring. Our Dan’s Floor Store team began sanding the wooden floors at a 45 degree angle to the grain several times to get them flat again. After we had the wood floors flat, we sanded them with the grain to prepare them for finishing.

We added an orange tint stain to the repaired areas, to get them to visually match the adjacent Heart Pine flooring.

To finish and protect these old pine wood floors, our crew first applied a coat of oil modified Bona DriFast Sealer Then we applied two coats or Bona Woodline Polyurethane for a tough protective coat with a slight amber tone.

Our clients were very happy to see how nice their old pine wood floors look now. And Dan’s Floor Store loves to have happy clients!

Hickory Wood Floor Repair – St. Augustine

Yikes! It doesn’t take a lot of water to damage a wood floor!

Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to repair some water damaged hickory wood flooring at the Beachcomber condos in St. Augustine, Florida. Beachcomber is in a very scenic location, with a super view of the Atlantic Ocean.

There were several areas of hickory flooring that were damaged and needed to be removed.

In all, we removed approximately 45 water damaged hickory boards from the floor.

After we were sure the subfloor was thoroughly dried out, we wove in the new hand scraped Hickory Natural pre-finished engineered hardwood flooring from Naturally Aged wood flooring.

The owners really liked how good their repaired hickory floors look now. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients.

Red Oak Wood Floor and Stair Restoration – Avondale

Stained and refinished red oak wood flooring and stair treadsDan’s Floor Store was contracted to refinish and repair 3,800 square feet of Red Oak wood floor and 18 stair treads in a charming old home being renovated in the Avondale community of Jacksonville, Florida.

Here are some photos showing the old wood floors before we started to refinish them. The middle photos shows our new Lagler-Hummel Belt Sanding machine, next to our older one.

They do a good job sanding wood floors.

As part of this Red Oak wood floor refinishing project, we had to remove and replace some damaged areas of the wood flooring, using the weave-in process to achieve a uniform look for the client’s wood floors.

Based on our experience in restoring and repairing wood floors in old homes, we chose rift and quarter sawn Red Oak wood flooring planks by Shamrock Plank Flooring as a good match to the existing wood flooring. We used the Red Oak planks for the weave-in repair, to replace the damaged wood flooring. There were actually many weave-in areas, repairing damaged wood flooring on this project.

After weaving-in the new Red Oak planks, we sanded and hand scraped the floors, the stair treads, and landings.

First our Dan’s Floor Store crew used the technique of applying a little water to “pop” the grain of the wood, prior to applying the stain to the Red Oak wood floor and stair treads. This extra step allows the stain to penetrate deeper, to get a darker, richer stain effect than just using the stain, straight out of the can. Then we applied MinWax stain – blending 2 parts Coffee brown to 1 part medium brown.

We also mimicked the stair tread nosing from the 1950’s by handcrafting and modifying new nosing to achieve a near exact look.

For the finish coat on these floors, we used Bona Mega Clear HD for our first build-up coat. Our crew will be back in a few weeks to put the final two coats on this wood flooring restoration project.

As our Dan’s Floor Store crew was leaving the project home, we just had to catch a few photos of the serene view of the St. Johns River, as seen from behind the project home.

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.

Wood Flooring Refinish and Repair in Jacksonville Beach

Dan’s Floor Store was selected to refinish the wood floors in this home in Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

In addition to refinishing the wood floors, there was a section of flooring that had to be replaced; a 50 board, weave-in repair. We also installed some nice vinyl plank flooring in the upstairs master bedroom suite.

These photos show us preparing for and during the refinishing phase of this project.

The client chose the Classic Gray stain by DuraSeal for the 2 1/4″ solid Red Oak flooring downstairs. We applied Bona Traffic polyurethane (a commercial-rated, waterborne finish) coating to protect the wood floor, in a satin sheen.

We agree that our client’s selection, the Classic Gray stain by DuraSeal, conveys a very beachy look; very fitting for the location of the home, just steps away from the Beach.

At Dan’s Floor Store, we enjoy helping clients save some money while extending the life of their wood flooring.

Wood Floor Repair, Sand, and Stain in Ponte Vedra Florida

Refinished (sanded and stained) solid Red Oak wood floorWe were invited out to a home in TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida to provide one of our free professional consultations concerning their wood floors.

The clients wanted to renovate their home with darker wood floors and stairway, and wanted our insight on a water damaged area of wood flooring in their home.

  • Rather than replacing their wood floors, we recommended sanding and staining them, and repairing the damaged area of wood flooring.

This project presented a large area of wood flooring to be sanded and stained, in addition to the area of wood flooring to be repaired.

In the damaged flooring area, the plywood sub-floor and the solid wood flooring had to be removed and the concrete dried out before the new plywood could be installed followed by new 3 1/4 inch solid Red Oak wood flooring.

The staircase treads had been the natural color of the wood floor, with white risers to the treads. The stair treads and risers would need to be sanded and stained as part of this project.

Sanding the wood floors to prepare them for staining and coating.

The customers selected a DuraSeal in Antique Brown for their floors and staircase.

A satin waterborne Bona Traffic polyurethane was used for coating.

This was a large scale flooring project, and after it was finished, it looked great and it was a fun one to work on! We enjoy helping clients save some money while extending the life of their wood flooring.
