What to use on plywood floor? Storage Building


Just got a storage building for outback that has a plywood floor and I am trying to decide if I want to use some sort of carpet,garage snap tiles,or use a primer and a paint.

The building is 336 sq ft,so using garage tiles would run around $900.
Looks like paint and primer would be around the $150 range and I'm not sure about outdoor carpet. I'm actually leaning towards a good primer and a good paint.

Let me know what you guys used and how you liked it.Thanks

If you're going to paint I'd use BM's floor and patio paint, It's epoxy modified. I've used it many times with good results. http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/f...s#advs=0&tab=2

How about some sheet vinyl?

Probably about the same cost, or less cost, as the primer and paint...
