White Oak Wood Floor Refinished with a Custom Stain on Anastasia Island

Dan’s Floor Store refinishes old wood floors to look like new, or as a part of achieving a different look in a room, or both.

A client wanted their 2 1/4″ wide solid White Oak wood floor refinished with a custom stain to achieve a different look in their home on Anastasia Island in St. Augustine, Florida.

We started this project by sanding the wood flooring.

Details are important in achieving good results. When Dan’s Floor Store refinishes a wood floor we perform a step called “pulling the ends” of the wood plank floors. For this step, we hand scrape the edges of the floor where the edger sanded, to achieve a full fresh surface for the wood flooring.

To achieve the look the client wanted for their wood floor, we rubbed the floor with water to “pop” (open up) the wood grain. Popping the wood grain allows super pigmented stains to stay in the wood, rather than being pulled off when a water based finish is applied. The stain color we created for the client was a custom color; a blend of DuraSeal Classic Gray and DuraSeal Country White.

We finished the custom stained White Oak wood floor with durable Bona finishes. First our crew applied Bona Mega Clear HD which eliminates the amber tint achieved with some finishes. And then we applied a final finish coat of Bona Traffic HD.

The custom stain achieved the look that the client wanted, and they were very happy with their refinished floor.
