Ben Moore Alkyd or Latex porch paint

graywings123June 28, 2012

The Ben Moore website shows that it sells two versions of paint for porches: Alkyd Porch and Floor Enamel 112 and Latex Floor and Patio Enamel (122).

Would you choose alkyd over latex for a porch floor?

Personally,I would go with the latex, I believe it is fortified with epoxy or something. I am just tired or the oil clean up.

You are right: it's epoxy-modified acrylic satin latex floor enamel.

I don't use oil often enough to be bothered by the cleanup. I just want what's best for my old wooden porch floor.
