Wood Floors in Kitchen?

“Should we install the wood floors in the Kitchen?”  This question can leave Owners awake at night, but rest assured there is no “right” or “wrong” answer.

Hickory Plank Wood Flooring

Often times the homes layout can help you determine the answer.  In the picture above we installed a jobsite finish hickory floor throughout an open floor plan where the Living Room flows through the Breakfast Area and into the Kitchen.  The linear pattern of the wood runs parallel with the long dimension of the space.  This provided an expanse feel with a uniform look throughout.

Our recommendation is to consider the space, use, and Owner’s wants, then make the decision.

Van Buren Bulldogs

With what might be the biggest logo on a high school floor in the state of Missouri, Van Buren wanted everyone who entered the renovated gym to know they’re back!  After suffering a devastating flood last spring, Van Buren Schools was back in action with a new wood and poured gym floor by the fall.

Along with the new floor, we provided the Owner with a floor cover and carpet runners for protection during games.  Missouri Floor Co. offers a full line of vinyl, carpet, & tile floor covers to protect your investment.  Please call for more info.

Gym Floor Renovation

Fredericktown H.S. had dreams become a reality this past summer as they converted their existing gymnasium into a beautiful new sports venue.  There is no doubt whose “house” you’re in when you play here!

The original surface was installed by Missouri Floor Company years ago with our Owner actually being part of the install crew.  It goes without saying there was a lot of pride all around with a history like this!

Water Damage Repair & Refinish

A wood floor in a gymnasium can last close to a lifetime if kept dry.  The problem is mother nature and other things beyond our control.  Roof issues led to water damage of the gym floor so we were called in to repair and refinish the floor.

Though the Owner is inconvenienced with the down time of repairs, they often end up with an opportunity to update the court layout and logos.   If your gym floor has current or past water issues, call today and we can assist in both evaluation and solutions (314)432-2260.

Classic Oak Floor

Homeowner’s often try to get too creative in their search for the “perfect” floor.  The picture above is a classic Select White Oak strip floor we installed throughout the Kitchen and Breakfast Room.  The wood was sanded and finished onsite and stained to the Owner’s color selection.

Here, the Homeowner needed the floor to be functional enough for a young family yet elegant enough to catch the eye.

Pioneer Pride!

It’s always bittersweet when a floor with such history gets torn out, but we are underway with the replacement of the wood gym floor in the Denver Miller Gym at Kirkwood High School.

Wood Floor Replacement – Kirkwood, MO

While the kids enjoy the summer break, it is time to get down to business here at Missouri Floor Company.  Shrinking breaks mean shorter duration’s to get full replacements delivered on time.  We try to be proactive and sequence the projects within the time frames allotted.  It takes communication, experience, and a solid relationship with the manufacturers to bring it all together on time.

Multipurpose Gymnasium Wood Floor

Missouri Floor Co. recently completed an installation of a new wood athletic floor in the gym at Arthur Christian School.  What started as a simple phone conversation about budgets for a floor in their facility turned into a beautiful project within a years time.  It’s always a good feeling to be part of a great plan that comes together.

University City Centennial Commons

After water damaged the existing wood gym floor at the nearby U City Rec Center, Missouri Floor Company was called to evaluate the damage.  Within 24 hours we were there to begin monitoring the damage.  The floor ended up being a total loss which only started the process for further losses to the Owner due to the gym being shut down during replacement.

We got creative using features available in the industry (Robbins XLplus “presanded” maple) and our crews committed to overtime to help expedite the process.  The floor was turned back over to the Owner more than a week early to get them back in action!  A big “Thank You” goes out to the facility for choosing Missouri Floor Company to tackle the project.

Washington University – Robbins Sports Finalist of the Year

The new Gary M. Sumers Recreation Center for Wash U now has 7 different types of Robbins flooring installed to suit the multiple needs and uses of the facility.  Surfaces covered included an Indoor Running Track, 3 Court Gymnasium, Fitness Rooms, Weight Rooms, Locker Rooms, and much more.  Listed below is a time lapse video on the 3 Court Gym…

Due to the various types of flooring and uniqueness of the facility, we entered the project in the Robbins Sport Surface of the Year competition.  The Center was recently named as a finalist and we’re hoping to bring home a victory….

The project had an expedited schedule and construction issues that arise when working on a large project, but was overall enjoyable.  It was a win for all involved and we are honored to be have played a part.  There are more photos to come of the facility, check back soon.

Another YMCA

We completed the wood gym floor in the Gymnasium Addition at the O’Fallon, IL YMCA branch this past week.  Listed below is a picture of the progress through the painting of the gamelines.  This tends to be the fun part of the project where the Owner has a chance to customize the floor to their wants and needs.

Missouri Floor Company and Robbins Sport Surfaces have enjoyed a strong relationship with the YMCA’s over the years and consider it an honor to install floors in their facilities.
