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!

As can be seen in the following photos, we did a massive amount of leveling on the concrete slab subfloor prior to this wood flooring installation.

Our crew used Bostik Pro Cure adhesive to accomplish the French/German White Oak flooring installation.

We finished this flooring project out with shoe molding to match the baseboard. A hallway was installed on the diagonal, for added visual effect. And our crew also sanded, stained and refinished the lower existing stair tread to match the new wood flooring.

Wire Brushed White Oak Wood Flooring Install – Neptune Beach

Dan’s Floor Store clients include home and condo owners, business owners, as well as new construction building contractors and home improvement renovators.

For this wood flooring project, we were working with a local home builder on a new home in Neptune Beach. The builder provided 950 square feet of character grade, wire brushed White Oak wood flooring, with a machine sculpted top of 4 mm for our crew to install.

Before installing the wood flooring, we had to level the concrete subfloor. And this slab required a large amount of leveler to achieve a flat surface for the wire brushed White Oak flooring.

At Dan’s Floor Store, we pride ourselves on our subfloor leveling prowess. Leveling the subfloor is an important step; the flat surface minimizes damage to the installed wood flooring and maximizes the flooring life.

Our crew used flooring straps to keep the wood flooring planks tightly together while installing them. For these super wide plank White Oak boards, the flooring straps were very helpful. And we used Bostik’s Pro-Cure adhesive for this application.

When the homeowner saw her new wire brushed White Oak wood flooring installed, she was so happy she told us that she wants us to come back and install wood flooring in the bedrooms of her new home in the future. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients like this.
