I posted this question over on the home referbers site but that place is dead so I will give it a try here. I will be remodeling our porch into a 3 season room. I had planned to use tile on the floor but I am now thinking about using some elm lumber that I salvaged from a beautiful tree that once grew in our yard. I will still use tile in the high traffic area. Just wondering if anyone has any great ideas for a super durable finish, it will get plenty of use and there is always the possibility of some rain blowing in on when we get one of the many quick thunder storms that happen frequently in the summer. I can have the lumber KD and T & G to make a real tight job and think I would seal all four sides with at least one coat before installation. Does anyone have a favorite product that might work? My best thought so far is spar polyurethane.
