I just installed a T&G mahogany porch floor on my house last summer.
I asked on here the best coating to seal it and got mixed responses so after some research on my own i decided to go with oil based Australian Timber Oil. Well it didn't even last a year. so I have to coat it again.
Spar Varnish is not recommended for porch floors.
Why would you paint it?
What do you think about just linseed oil and thinner mixed and just seal it every year?
Hire a pro
Get on a maintenance contract with them
Bite the bullet
Would you recommend someone going on this forum to tackle all their HVAC installations or repairs? Nope.
Mahogany takes the same steps as it all. Strip, pH balance and apply oil stain. Hardwood finish will not last as long, so it will be a yearly thing, but this wood is too expensive to make it your hobby learning deal.
Armstrong Clark is what I use and love, but there are others as long as you steer clear of the big box stores and hardware stores.
