Paint For Wood Floor
Feb 5th, 2021 at 11:43am
 
I’m moving soon and I will have a shop with wooden floor, which I intend to paint.

I want to keep the dust down and I want something to help make cleanup easy, or as easy as possible. I was thinking about using porch and floor enamel. Is that a good choice or is there a better one?



Thanks

What about polyurethane?  That's what would be used on residential floors; it's tough and it tends to last a very long time.   Sand to 220, apply the first coat, wait 24 hours, sand with 320 grit and apply a second coat.

Home Depot has some Behr floor paint.
I haven't used this but have had good results with other behr products.

That's what my wife suggested, except for the sanding part.

I was looking at the Sherwin-Williams version of this and it's double the cost of the Behr, so this may be a good choice.

Joe,

We have a wood floor in our shop, we used the Behr floor paint and its been down for 8-10 years. Holds up well and makes sweeping and clean up a breeze. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

I painted the OSB ceiling white and called that good enough.

The floor is still raw..and will stay that way. Smiley

On the plus side, the wood tone fits right in with the raw pine walls and the raw pine door trim.  It's all about keeping the  "natural" look of wood.

I made the mistake of painting my first framing shop floor a gray on concrete.
Footprints showed up ALOT!!!

So, i decided to splatter  different colors onto the gray, like a Jackson Pollock painting. No more footprints AND it was "Artsy"!! Smiley

Besides, who needs a clean workshop! You need piles of shavings so visitors are amazed at how hard you are working.

You can also hide the beer under the piles.

All I can say is whatever brand you decide on, clean & prep the area before you start and it will last.
If you're going to paint bare wood, you might want to consider a primer.
I use this for raw wood under paint but it comes in many varieties and also water-based if you prefer.

I thought about raw, but I plan to paint before I move anything in.

It's a new bare wood floor and I didn't think about a primer, but that's a good idea.

Keep in mind that sawdust on painted floors can be quite slippery.

Maybe a paint that has a grit in it?
