How do you install tongue and groove porch floor?
Beside this, what kind of wood do you use for a porch floor?
While natural fir is the traditional choice for a porch floor, good wood alternatives include cedar, mahogany and Brazilian Ipe. You can add interest and texture to your porch floor by mixing woods or laying boards in a creative pattern.
Subsequently, question is, what flooring is best for enclosed porch? Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) and Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) Pergo Extreme products are waterproof and scratch-resistant and can take pretty much anything your family can dish out. We highly recommend luxury vinyl planks or tiles for sunrooms and enclosed porches for clients who are looking for great style on a budget.
In respect to this, how do you install Douglas fir porch floor?
Lay out the Douglas fir decking on an open work area, upside down. Brush weatherizing primer over the back and sides of each board. Let it set for 24 hours. Measure the length of the porch surface, in the direction perpendicular to the joists, so you're crossing all of them.
How much slope should a porch floor have?
Traditionally, boards are laid running perpendicular to the house. Make sure the porch floor has a slight slope to it—between 1⁄8" and ¼" per linear foot for tongue-and-groove floors. (If the porch is deeper than 8', use a slope closer to 1⁄8" per foot to avoid a pronounced slant.)
