Shop floor


Well I couldnt decide which forum this should go in but this seems as good as any. I just completed my 12x16 wood shop and it has t&g plywood as a floor over 2x8 joists. I want to put something on the floor...stain/clear sealer/poly? Any recomendations? Id rather not paint it. Just want some protection from spills and durable.

thanks.

Chip

Just curious why you would not want to paint it with a quality porch, floor or patio finish? Benjamin Moore's oil product is urethane reinforced and its waterborne is epoxy reinforced. Should hold up really well.

Sealer, then stain and finally polyurethane would be your other option unless you wanted to go whole hog for an two part epoxy coating.

I'm not a floor guy- and they do have some pretty hi test finishes that are not available on the open market- if you know of anybody in that trade it would be good to check with them.
That said- I think this is a pretty great product- as easy to apply as any waterborne- yet it dries and acts like an oil ( hybrid)

Ace hardware among others carries it.

Clear polyurethanes, such as Flecto Varathane, have worked well on floors. Many offer a water-base version that can be three-coated on the same day.

Thanks for the reply, want to avoid repainting every couple years and want to keep the "wood look' to the floor.

Thanks, this looks like a good product, will it dry glossy though?...Will this be slick underfoot? Ive called around locally, looks like our local ace doesnt have it nearest is 35 minutes south of here.

Thanks. Just curious, is the advantage of water based version...dry time? Or smell... or something else? Thanks.

Yes, dry time, recoat time, low odor and non-yellowing. For the most hard finish, use clear gloss.

Endure-2k or evolution from lenmar are great waterborne commercial finishes. They are owned by insl-x which is a Ben moore company - so any Ben moore dealer can get it. @90 a gal for the endure-2k. Great stuff!
