Following one of our free consultations, Dan’s Floor Store was contracted to repair the Red Oak wood flooring in a Jacksonville home as part of a renovation project.
This home has a beautiful view of the St. Johns river, and is located near University Boulevard and Atlantic Boulevard.
As part of the renovation work, the existing kitchen and a wall were removed, leaving a large hole in the existing wood flooring. Dan’s Floor Store skills in wood floor repair can help make this wood floor look beautiful again.
To fill this exposed area of subfloor, we installed new 1 1/2″ solid Red Oak plank flooring, weaving each piece into existing planks of the old wood floors. Slightly over 100 of the new planks were woven-in to repair the floors in this home. A weave-in wood floor repair is a little more difficult than installing new wood plank flooring, and more routine weave-in repairs usually involve fewer planks to added.
It’s good practice to allow the wood flooring to sit and acclimate for two weeks prior to starting the refinishing phase of the project – sanding and finishing these floors.
Several weeks later we began the next phase of this project.
This solid inch and a half strip Red Oak flooring had some cupping to it so we had to sand it at a 45 degree angle, just like we do with all new solid wood flooring. Sanding wood flooring at a 45 degree angle helps to flatten the floor surface, so that we can “cut” (sand) the floor straight with rough grit paper.
A neutral DuraSeal stain was chosen for this floor to compliment the dark cherry color cabinets to be installed. Two coats of water based polyurethane were applied, followed by a final coat of Bona Traffic satin when the remainder of the renovation work in the home was completed.
Here are some photos of the final kitchen, with new Kitchen Cabinets and Island installed by Horn Builders. Everyone likes how the new darker finished cabinets and island are set off by the lighter wood flooring.
Removing the kitchen wall resulted in a much roomier kitchen, and gave the clients the open floor plan appearance that they wanted.
