Porch floor painted and slippery!
We just bought our house this summer. The porch floor has been painted (gray) I think there is some leftover paint in the basement we could use to touch it up, which it needs in some spots, esp. the steps. BUT! This winter? super slippery. I am not sure what the paint is that is down there, but any amount of snow/ice/rain heck even sometimes in the summer I noticed it, it's like a slip and slide... very helpful. Clearly porch floors are painted regularly, this is our first time dealing with one.
Is this likely the sheen of the paint, something wrong with the kind of paint... or just always a problem? Obviously you want the paint to be smooth looking, but not slippery! Clearly I am not doing any repainting right now, but others with painted porches what do you do about slipperiness or is there some reason you don't have a problem with it?
