    Default screen porch flooring

    What are the best products to use on a solid 3/4 floor that are flexable enough to expand and contract with the weather to prevent the seams from cracking. The present seams have been filled in with wood filler, then primed and painted with porch enamel and have cracked from the weather.

    What exactly is your "solid 3/4" floor" made of?

    You don't fill the seams of tongue and groove flooring. It's a futile effort, because the wood is going to shrink and expand with humidity anyway, the joints prevent it from splitting or buckling. Count on up to 1/4" movement per foot of width.

    Home Depot carries a product called Deck Restore. It is a sand re-inforced acrylic paint which is rolled on in two coats to give a 40 mil paint film. It will actually span cracks of a 1/4 inch. If the sand texture doesn't turn you off, it might be a product for you. It is actually intended for exposed decks which have badly weathered, but should do well for you application. WWW.Synta.com
