screened porch concrete floor

5 years ago

We have a 11'4" x 13'8" screened porch. The floor is a concrete slab about 2 feet up from the ground. It has been painted numerous times and every year I try to clean it and more paint chips and I have to repaint it. I am looking for a flooring option to go over the concrete (has no cracks but water collects in a few areas when it rains/snows). Around perimeter of the floor are 2 x 4s bolted into the concrete floor (the measurements above are "inside" of the 2 X 4 perimeter. Can I use Ipe? What subfloor should go underneath (between the concrete and the Ipe? 2 X 4 furring strips ? wood? metal? Thanks
