oil or latex for floor paint

carol0512July 10, 2012

Hello, Recently I had a professional paint my 100+ yr old random width pine bedroom floor. Too paint stained to stain. This is the same with the downstairs. My question is this: the paint is SW floor paint latex and took over 30 days to stop being sticky sounding when I walked on it. I kept all furniture, people, pets, etc., off the floor for 7 days. It was painted in mid March and the heat was still on.

Should I look for an oil based floor paint or continue with SW latex floor paint for the downstairs?

thanks, Carol

Too paint call Sherwin Williams. 30 days for latex to dry is highly unusual. Are you sure it's latex? Sounds like too heavily applied oil to me, too paint.
