YellaWood® Porch Flooring - Storing, Painting, and Installation


Because YellaWood® Tongue & Groove KDAT Porch Flooring is kiln dried after treatment, it is very important to keep it totally dry before priming and installation, and also during installation!

Proper Storage
Prior to installation, keep YellaWood® KDAT Porch Flooring elevated, covered and completely dry. Store out of direct sunlight prior to installation and do not store on bare concrete or other masonry, as moisture can be absorbed from those materials.

Prime ALL 6 Sides
If installed before priming, Porch Flooring will swell, pull away from floor joists, and then shrink and perhaps twist when re-drying. To avoid problems, you should prime ALL 6 sides of each board with a good oil base porch primer and allow this to dry completely BEFORE installation, which should be done by a professional pine flooring installer.

Installation
YellaWood® Porch Boards should be nailed at each floor joist at an angle through the base of the tongue of each board, rather than face nailing. During installation allow for a small amount of swelling (even with priming) by leaving a space between each board about the thickness of a piece of regular paper. This space will be filled by paint after installation. Installation should only be on covered porches. YellaWood® KDAT Porch Flooring should not be used on an open deck.

Final Coat of Paint
After installation, apply a coat of quality oil base porch enamel. Avoid any coating other than oil base paint. If exposed ends are cut during installation, they should receive a primer and top coat immediately after installation.

If properly stored, primed, painted, and installed following these instructions, your YellaWood® KDAT Porch Flooring will provide a very long and useful life.
