Temporary subfloor coating


I am building my retirement house on a shoestring, so to speak.
The outside is finished; starting to work on the inside now.

The subfloor is 3/4" T&G Advantech. I would like to move in before
putting down flooring as I don't quite have the funds for the flooring just yet.
(hard to save on soc. sec.)

I would like to coat the subfloor with something relatively cheap (paint, polyurthane, etc. ?) so as to make sweeping easier and prevent wear until I can afford to put down flooring.

Any suggestions on what to use ?

A lot depends on what you plan on for a finished floor.

I do not feel Paint over Advantic is a great idea. By design it's made to repel moisture it's not likly to stay stuck down.
Some cheap laminite on sale can be bought for about $1.00 a sq. ft. and would hold up far better and be easy to install and remove.

Thanks Joe,

I haven't decided on the finished flooring just yet.
Maybe rolled vinyl, at least in kitchen and bath.
And possibly laminate elsewhere, but definitely not carpet anywhere.

But for now, even at $1/sq. ft. (1200s.f.=$1200+tax), thats more than I can spend just now,
(so many other things to buy to get it ready to move in)
and I especially don't want to spend that much for something that's just temporary.

Maybe just some kind of cheap sealer that will make sweeping a bit easier and keep the dust down.

And how do you plan on attaching vinyl? You would have to go over the Advantic with 1/4 Sanded plywood to get it to stick. Advantic is not rated for underlament for linolium.
And any glueless linolium would cost far more then reguler linolium, and more then laminite.
