Hi. I could use some advice.
The front porch of my 1917 bungalow currently has T&G pine flooring
that needs to be replaced. I live in Texas, and this flooring gets
strong sun in the afternoon. Because I have children and because this
porch gets a lot of dirt and pollen due to the many trees nearby
(including Live Oak pollen and catepillars which cover the house and
lot in late March -- this insidious stuff is difficult to clean up), I
would like to try to put something in that can be hosed off and doesn't
require periodic repainting, but still looks like wood.
I was planning on trying Tendura (www.tendura.com), the solid color
version, making sure that the underlying joists and beams are protected
with a vapor barrier, but they only have the solid in grey, which
wouldn't look so great (I really need brown).
Does anyonw know of other similar products I could look into?
Any opinions of whether this idea is a good one?
Thanks so much,
