I will be remodeling our porch into a 3 season room. I had planned to use tile on the floor but I am now thinking about using some elm lumber that I salvaged from a beautiful tree that once grew in our yard. I will still use tile in the high traffic area. Just wondering if anyone has any great ideas for a super durable finish, it will get plenty of use and there is always the possibility of some rain blowing in on when we get one of the many quick thunder storms that happen frequently in the summer. I can have the lumber KD and T & G to make a real tight job and think I would seal all four sides with at least one coat before installation. Does anyone have a favorite product that might work? My best thought so far is spar polyurethane.

what about a wax/oil product . thinking it would be nice to avoid that cracking poly look at every joint . I do not like the look of the filler after the expantion and contraction seperates it ,and have been leaving it out when I expect alot of moisture and temperature change .

I like that it can easily be repaired .I want to avoid the cracking at joints ,also when rocks in shoes make dents . Hope that helped some

I personally like the look and feel of timber and wood, but tile could work just as well. Before you go ahead with removals and installations, think about what you personally would prefer?

It would be so much better if you take advice from a good contractor who has experience in this matter. You can also hire a contractor for this job, now you can access such service providers in an instant online. In fact, you can also find driveway asphalt repair service online.

You should use tile flooring because it is easy to manage and clean. If you buy an old house then get the flooring changed before moving in. You can now find properties available in your desired location online. For instance, if you need Lake Wylie homes for sale, you can find the information about available properties online.

Instead of using tiles you should consider using hardwood, it would give the room an elegant look. However, make sure that you buy good quality furniture for the room. If you want classy furniture then you can order that furniture from hooker entertainment center New Jersey.

You definitely have the skill and experience of handling this job all by yourself, but it would be better if you hire professionals. For any remodeling work you should contact a company like Total Construction Company which offers home improvement northern virginia.
