Screen Porch With Solid Floor?


I have a customer that wants a 20x20 3 season porch (Michigan) with screens and a solid floor. It's 10 feet above grade. Wondering what material options there are for solid floors (deck boards with no gaps, not carpet) still exposed to some weather.

We decked the space needle in gatlinburg 2 years ago, I think we used nylodeck, Its a fiberglass decking without any expansion lays like hardwood, seems solid and good. Looks like hardwood too. It was t&g so there's no gaps. Slightly tapered on each side like some hardwood flooring boards are.

Our supplier was local. But I'm sure you can call around and find it.

The first thing that comes up on Google for Nylodeck is an article about the Nyloboard company going up for sale.

dang that sucks, I'm sorry about that. I can't think of any other material without expansion that's solid other than tile or a hardwood.

If by chance you did find some nylo decking the warranty would be invalid. I would call some contractors and see if there's similar products.

Thats a shame ya know I think nylodeck was the only company to come out with a board without expansion for decks.
