Treating a wooden porch floor

Ceredigion, United Kingdom Gb

Hello again, what is the best treatment for wooden floor boards which get a lot of traffic and rainwater, I used Forest Green Cuprinol (Ducksback)about a month ago and it's not strong enough for the floorboards on the porch which are starting to have cracks in them. :)



We live in an old house "on the beach" so get a lot of driving rain. We use garage floor paint over the origional pine floorboards and also the front door step. The colour is slate grey. Quite pricey but looks smart and doesn't crack.

Good idea I was thinking paint especially as I have just had a look at the next months forecast wet !!! but didn't know which to go for as there are so many types :)

Maybe you could ask a hardware store for advice, there are a lot of wooden floors about these days
and as you say a lot of products too, some have helplines on the cans,
I,ve spoken to the customer cares before now and found some are helpful and want to sell you the right product
