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!

Forest Accents Ardesia XWA Ponte Vedra Beach homeowner contracted Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 to install 1,500 square feet of White Oak flooring in their home.

Our client selected 7 1/2″ wide, engineered French/German White Oak (Ardesia XW) wood flooring, made by Forest Accents, from their Euro Textures line.

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.

Our client was very happy to see how nice their new French/German White Oak flooring installation looked, and Dan’s Floor Store always likes to have happy clients!

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.

Handscraped Hickory Flooring Install – Nocatee

Installed Pergo handscraped hickory flooringA homeowner in Willowcove in Nocatee contracted Dan’s Floor Store to install Pergo handscraped Hickory flooring (which they had already purchased) in their home.

Of course, we sell solid wood, engineered wood, laminate, luxury vinyl plank flooring from our Dan’s Floor Store showroom in Ponte Vedra, but we will also install wood flooring for clients, too.

This client contracted us to install their wood flooring over existing tile in their home. We explained that the best way to install their wood flooring would be to allow us to remove the old tile, level the floor, and then install their wood flooring. We cannot warranty a wood flooring installation over existing tile, because if the tile comes up, then the wood flooring on top will come up too. We explained that to our client and also stated that in writing with the homeowner. But the homeowner said they understood and still wanted their handscraped Hickory flooring installed over their existing tile flooring, so that is what we did.

Our crew used Bostiks GreenForce adhesive to adhere the wood flooring to the tile.

We also installed new quarter round and various moldings to complete the job.

Our homeowner client was very pleased with their new Pergo handscraped Hickory flooring installation, and Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients.

Prefinished Birch Wood Flooring Installation – World Golf Village

Installed handscraped prefinished birch wood flooringReplacing existing carpeting with wood flooring is an improvement project that increases the value of a home, a condo, or a business.

As part of this home improvement project for this World Golf Village condo, we replaced existing carpeting with prefinished birch wood flooring.

The first step was removing 700 square feet of carpeting from the condo.

Next our Dan’s Floor Store crew leveled the concrete subfloor in the area that had been carpeted. We level the subfloor prior to installing wood floors to create a flat surface, which minimizes damage to the wood and maximizes the wood flooring life.

With the subfloor leveled, we installed the 5″ wide by 3/8″ thick, hand scraped, prefinished Birch wood flooring. as provided by the builder.

Our crew made our own moldings for this project, and did some clean carpet tucks where the wood and carpet in bedrooms met. This job turned out great, and our homeowner was pleased. And Dan’s Floor Store likes to have happy clients!

Engineered White Oak Wood Flooring Installation – Palencia Country Club

When owners were ready to replace the carpeting in the master bedroom and office of their Palencia home, they called Dan’s Floor Store 904.887.8303 for a free consultation and estimate.

Closeup - solid white oak wood flooringThese clients liked the engineered White Oak wood flooring that they already had installed in their main living room; a product of LM flooring. Since we carry LM flooring in our store, we ordered the same exact flooring for the master bedroom and office of their home.

The first day of this project, we tore out the old carpeting in the two selected areas of the home.

The same day, our crew did the floor leveling using quality Bostik products. Floor leveling is required on almost every wood floor installation project, to create a flat surface, which decreases hollow areas beneath the wood flooring planks, to minimize damage to the wood and maximize the flooring life.

The next day, our Dan’s Floor Store crew installed all the new engineered White Oak wood flooring, about 400 square feet of it.

And on our last day on the job site, we finished the project out with shoe molding all around the new wood floors and helped move the client’s furniture back in place.

Our clients were very happy with their new engineered White Oak wood floors, and Dan’s Floor Stores always likes to have happy clients.

Weave-in Repair Install Refinish Red Oak Flooring – St. Augustine

Completing plywood underlaymentThis job took place in Moultrie Foreside, a community near the water off of US1 on Moultrie Creek in south St. Augustine.

Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to help with a home improvement project involving solid wood flooring with plywood subfloor underneath it.

The home had already existing Red Oak select grade flooring, all running on a diagonal in the upper level. Our clients were re-doing their whole kitchen and connecting on in the lower living room but we are knocking out an old existing bedroom to enlarge the open space.

We put down our vapor membrane when installing the plywood base for the new Red Oak flooring, using our Hilti DX2 nail guns.

Next our crew installed the solid Red Oak select grade wood flooring.

Adding Red Oak to finish the transition and steps between upper and lower floors.

There was a massive amount of weave-in repair work in the wood flooring for this job, as evidenced in the photos. Also the floor running on a diagonal had to come around and meet up. There was a room with a fireplace where we did a weave-in repair, as well as repairing some old pet damage to the wood flooring in the center of the living room. The lower floor had 3 inch wide Red Oak select flooring. The upper floor was 2 1/4 inch wide Red Oak select. Both sizes of Red Oak select wood flooring were provided by Oak Crest Lumber.

Our Dan’s Floor Store wood flooring work is done in compliance with National Wood Flooring Association standards, in order to provide beautiful results and long lasting wood floors for our customers. As one example of NWFA practices, when installing solid wood flooring like this one, it’s important to leave room for the wood to expand and contract. That’s why we install expansion joints (which you can see in some of the photos), using nickels between the boards every 10 feet.

We needed to give the new solid Red Oak wood floors time to acclimate before sanding and finishing them, and sanding and refinishing the repaired Red Oak floors. We will give the new wood floors about month to acclimate, and then return and finish this project.

Dan’s Floor Store repairs and refinishes existing wood flooring and installs new wood floors (solid wood, engineered wood, or laminate) for residential and commercial clients, to improve the looks of the floor and value of the property.
