    Question flooring for enclosed porch in MN

    My 1918 farmhouse has an enclosed, 3 season, unheated front porch. It is 25x7 feet. The flooring needs to be replaced. I am wondering if floating laminate or cork will work. If not will vinyl that looks like wood work? Someone at home depot said the top layer might separate. Tile is sounding like the only option, and it really won't fit with the style of the farmhouse. Temps on the porch range from 0 degrees to 100 degrees.

    Stick with tile. As mentioned, wood will be problematic as humidity and temperatures change.

    You could also do stamped and/or coloured concrete.

    For tiles, the under layment must be rock solid or it will crack and lift. There's a huge wrap around porch on a old home near here. IT has gorgous hex tile with a really neat pattern. Sadly, the porch has settled and the wood has changed dimensions and buckled much of the tile.
