I have 3/4 inch ply for my floors. Was wondering if I choose to paint them both for appearance and ease of cleaning if it may cause any problems in the wood. Like bowing or not letting the wood breathe.
I am adding on to a shed and the floors in there are not insulated yet but plan to put in 2” foam like the addition.
The old shed was built on the ground. there are various layers built up and then the floor. I put gravel and vapor barrier under the addition. Plan on putting gutters around it next year some time. It seems to be well drained around the building.
Just was wondering if anyone had problems after painting their wood floors. I know the paint will act as an additional vapor barrier. I’m thinking moisture from underneath could possible bow the plywood due to the paint on top not letting the wood breathe from one side to the other.
