How we Refinished Two Species of Wood Flooring and Blended them into One

Our latest project came from a new homeowner in Wilton, CT. They wanted their hardwood floors refinished before moving in. On our initial inspection we noticed that this home built in the mid 1900’s had four different species of wood flooring! The main areas consisted of strip white oak. The main set of stairs were red oak. The back set of stairs, pine. But all eyes were on the kitchen and entry which consisted of American walnut wood flooring. Our client did not like the existing orangey finish on the walnut. It contrasted too much with the medium brown white oak floors adjacent to their spacious kitchen. Our task was to refinish the entire home and blend the walnut in their kitchen into the white oak in their dining and living room. We sanded all 4 species down to bare wood. We chose a stain and custom blended the mix for the entire home. It was a Special Walnut mix. But not in...

Awesome Heart Pine Floors Refinished in a Pair of 1915 Homes

We just wrapped up refinishing the second antique home on the same street in Historic Black Rock, Bridgeport CT. Both homes were built at the same time by the same builder, in 1915. They truly have stood the test of time. Safe to say this builder knew what he was doing when choosing hardwood. These pair of antique Connecticut homes are built like battleships. The second and most recent home we refinished was with the same heart pine as in our previous post. The homeowner wanted to stay with darker, richer, brown look. So we sanded off all the existing finish. We removed the scratches and dents. Next we stained the floors with a Provincial dark stain. You can see below how we were able to bring the life back to these beautiful heart pine floors.   Before staining however, we use a wood conditioner product to open up the grain in the antique pine. This helps the wood take our stain...

Removing Old Tile and Installing Select Red Oak

They had enough! After forty years of looking at the same old tile in their home’s foyer, our recent client asked if we could rip it out and replace it with a high quality hardwood floor in their Norwalk home. The demolition of the tile took a few hours because it was glued pretty securely to the subfloor. Once the old stuff was out, we installed a Select & Better grade 3″ red oak in its place. Our client asked us to get away from the golden-y color with their new foyer. We coated it with a waterbourne, clear sealer following additional top coats of Bona Mega Finish.        

Beautiful White Oak Wood Floors at Westport’s Compo Beach

Wall Street Wood Floors has┬áhad the distinct pleasure of doing hardwood floors in both the oldest and newest homes on Westport’s prestigious Hillspoint Rd. The oldest home was built in the 1700’s and inhabitated by the great Mr. Sherwood of Sherwood Island State Park fame. We refinished the antique, reclaimed 12′ pine floors on their first floor. The newest home can be seen here. It is a beautiful and thoughtful home overlooking Compo Beach. For this project we installed, sanded and finished 7″ white oak throughout. The foyer features a 4″ white oak in a herringbone pattern.

Refinishing Antique Pine Wood Floors in Black Rock, CT

Our latest client came to us in need of hardwood floor refinishing from the beautiful seaside neighborhood of Black Rock in Connecticut. It’s situated right between Fairfield and Bridgeport. The home was built less than a hundred years ago but maintains some lovely antique pine floors.   It was in need of refinishing.   Our task was to remove and sand off the existing finish and create a new lighter look. We didn’t want to deviate from pine’s original nature by staining it. Pine floors…don’t stain ’em! Here are a couple pictures from our most recent work:       A job like this will usually take one work week to finish.
