Acacia Wood Flooring Installation in Historic Riverside

This flooring project was subcontracted to Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 by a local residential renovation contractor.

Solid Acacia wood flooring - installed.We were contracted to install 3/4″ thick, 4 3/4″ wide, random length, hand scraped solid Acacia wood flooring, color Golden Topaz, by Timber Harvest flooring over multiple layers of flooring that was over 100 years old.

  • The builder provided this solid Acacia flooring.
  • This home is located in the historic Riverside area of Jacksonville, Florida.

The old subflooring was bowed and wavy in various areas. Our crew used Bostik Grip-N-Shield adhesive for this project.

  • Some areas required adhesive and wood shimming. In order to get the maximum contact and ensure a solid bond between the new wood flooring and the wavy and bowed wooden subfloor, we also placed boxes of wood flooring on top of the freshly laid Acacia planks.
  • Our crew started the job off the fireplace. For visual appeal and longer runs, we laid the Acacia planks front to back, as you walk in the front door.
  • Our crew did quite a few precision cuts during this solid Acacia wood flooring installation, such as around the cable through the floor, at the oversized white threshold plate at a bedroom door, and for multiple ventilation duct registers.

Our contractor and their clients were very pleased with our solid Acacia wood flooring installation work. No more bowed and wavy flooring in this home! Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients.

Installing Hickory Hardwood Flooring in Palencia

When the owners of a home in the Palencia community in St. Augustine, Florida were ready for a new look for their floors, they called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303.

Stony Brook Hickory hardwood flooring.These homeowners wanted to replace the laminate flooring in most of the rooms of their home. They decided on hand scraped, wire brushed, 7 1/2″ wide engineered Hickory hardwood flooring, called Stony Brook by Naturally Aged, from their Medallion collection for their new wood flooring. This wood flooring comes in random lengths, which makes their floors more visually appealing.

As we started removing the old laminate flooring, we were surprised to find that the laminate had been installed with pressure sensitive glue! (That’s not a recommended, durable adhesive for flooring.) Once the old laminate flooring and the sticky glue were removed, we leveled the concrete slab subfloor of the rooms in the home that were to get the new flooring.

Our clients decided to extend the Hickory hardwood flooring into the bathroom, so we removed the pedestal sink and toilet and prepared that subfloor, too.

We “picture framed” the hearth for the fireplace in the den, and cut a 5′ by 3′ slab of porcelain tile to fit. It made a nice focal point for the room; a nice touch.

Our crew made header boards for the doorways to the bathroom and the master bedroom, so no t-molding. We installed the Hickory hardwood flooring through the rest of the rooms, using durable Bostik Greenforce adhesive.

Our customers told us that they really like how nice their new Hickory floors look, and the porcelain fireplace hearth. Dan’s Floor Store always enjoys having happy clients.

Installing Australian Cypress Flooring in St. Augustine

View of Moultrie project homeDan’s Floor Store sells a variety of hard surface flooring, and can also install hard surface flooring as provided by the client.

For this project, Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 was contracted to install the wood flooring in a new home, under construction in the Moultrie area of St. Augustine, Florida.
And here’s a view of the property the project home is located upon (actually a 40 acre estate) from Phillips highway.

Our client provided a 4 1/4″ wide by 3/4″ thick, solid Australian Cypress plank flooring (in random lengths) for our Dan’s Floor Store crew to install.

We began this flooring project by sanding the edges of the plywood sheet subfloor. The new wood floor needs a level surface beneath it to perform best.

Our crew cut a groove along the bottom of the corner fireplace hearth. This groove will allow us to tuck the ends of the Cypress planks properly underneath the hearth.

We checked the moisture content of the Cypress planks and of the sheet plywood subfloor. Our crew needs to make sure the moisture content of the flooring has acclimated to the relative humidity of the home. This helps prevent wood flooring problems after installation, like warping, buckling, or cracking.
We also took a peek out the back window of the home and saw a deer.

Our crew installed the Australian Cypress using Bostik GreenForce adhesive for a reliable, durable bond. The Cypress planks come in assorted lengths, for added variety in the looks of this flooring installation.

As can be seen in these photos, this batch of Australian Cypress became some very knotty wood flooring.

Our client was very pleased to see how good the new Australian Cypress flooring looks installed. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy customers!

Engineered Birch Hardwood Flooring Installation – Palencia

These homeowners in the Palencia community in St. Augustine, Florida contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install wood flooring in their home.

The couple had selected a 5″ wide, hand scraped and chiseled, and lightly distressed engineered Birch hardwood flooring design. This Birch flooring is called Chattooga, from the River Ridge collection by Palmetto Road floors.

We began this project by moving furniture and removing the old carpeting, and taking a peek out in the backyard of the project home.

Our crew leveled the subflooring, to prepare it for our new wood flooring. For the sheet plywood subfloor upstairs, this means sanding the edges flat. We used Bostik Self Leveling underlayment on the concrete slab on the main floor.

Removal – Install, Sand, Stain, and Finish Red Oak Flooring – Jacksonville, FL

Westside Jacksonville homeowners contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to remove tile and carpeting from their home, and install Red Oak flooring.

To get the Red Oak flooring with the look our clients wanted, we recommended 5″ wide, unfinished engineered Red Oak by Maxwell, that we would custom stain to their preference. This wood flooring is made in the USA, and has a 4mm sawn face.

First our crew removed the old tile and carpeting.

The concrete slab subfloor of the home required us to do an immense amount of leveling. A wood flooring installation requires a flat surface.

We began installing the Red Oak flooring by putting a header board at the master bedroom, where some 5″ wide flooring had previously been installed. Our crew lined the new Red Oak boards up with the existing ones, for visual continuity and harmony. We installed, then sanded all of the new wood flooring. 

Next, our crew stained the new Red Oak boards with a custom blend of 3 quality Bona stains – 2 parts Cocoa ,2 parts Antique Brown, and 1 part Golden Oak. For finishing, we applied 3 coats of durable Pallmann finish – 1 coat of clear sealer, and 2 coats of semi gloss Power.

Needless to say, our clients were thrilled with the outcome of this floor job. And Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

FSC Certified Hickory Flooring Install – Palencia Country Club

FSC Certified Hickory flooring - installedOur clients selected a FSC certified Hickory flooring by Tesoro woods for their home in the Palencia Golf and Country Club community in St. Augustine.

FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certification is the hardest approval stamp to achieve for wood flooring. The FSC certification “ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits”.

The concrete slab subfloor of the home required a lot of leveling prior to installing the Hickory wood floor. Our crew began work by leveling the slab with Bostik SL – 150, Self Leveling Underlayment.

The FSC certified Hickory flooring has an incredible color – “Vintage Gatehouse – Desert”, which is slightly grey with natural undertones. We installed the flooring with Bostik ProCure Urethane adhesive.

Engineered French Oak Flooring Installation in Nocatee

Unless we are working with a new construction project, flooring installation projects usually require removal of the existing floor covering. And that is how we started this engineered French Oak flooring installation project.

Our crew began this project in a home in Nocatee by removing over 2,000 square feet of existing tile and wood flooring.

After we removed the tile and old wood flooring, we found a high level of moisture in the concrete slab subfloor. The high moisture content of the slab was caused by the tile having been put down before the slab had thoroughly cured.

So, after leveling the concrete slab subfloor, we applied Bostik MVP4 Moisture Barrier to the slab to abate the prevalent moisture.

Our client chose Bella Cera Villa Borghese engineered French Oak flooring in the Abele color. To be able to properly install the French Oak flooring, we undercut the stone fireplace, using a jamb saw with a masonry bit blade.

As evidenced by the note from our client, she was overjoyed with the job that we delivered! This turned out to be another beautiful wood flooring installation! And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!
