can you tile over a T& G porch floor?
We have an old Michigan farm house that has a covered 28'x10' front porch. The porch floor is tongue and groove wood that is painted. About every 2-3 years I have to sand and repaint it because the paint is peeling off. We are thinking about taking the wood off and replacing it with compsite or PVC, but I like the t&g look and don't want a deck look. I have also thought about tiling the floor. Has anyone ever done this? Does it hold up? Is it slippery when it's wet from rain or snow? We really only use the porch doing warm weather, it's not the main entrance to the house, but I don't want something that's really slippery because of our pets. I have never been a fan of tile because of the grout looking dirty. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I keep revisiting this everytime I have to repaint it.
