Forum Title: water-based paint for interior hardwood floor?
I have a client that needs her hardwood floors repainted. They're asking for a green product, i.e. low VOC, so that they don't have to camp out in the backyard for a week. But of course it's a floor so it needs to perform pretty well underfoot. The floors: They already have a coat of oil-based enamel that is really really old. I will wash them and sand them, then prime them. About 300sq total. I'm thinking some sort of hybrid paint would be a wise choice, like the SW Proclassic Waterborne Interior Acrylic Enamel. Admittedly, my knowledge of these sort of products is embarrassingly low as I stick to exterior stuff mostly, but it's time I catch up! I think SW ArmorSeal Tread-Plex Water Based Coating would be overkill as it's not a high-traffic area. What do you think? What other products should I consider? Or, am I over thinking this and I just need to lay on some latex paint in the color of choice and then top coat with water-based poly in the sheen of choice? Thanks!! Oh, and what primer to use? Water based? Oil based? Shellac??

Low VOC is about outdoor air emissions, not indoor air quality. Second, I can't really give you advice on painting hardwoods. That's just silly. But if I was silly and wanted to paint some hardwoods with a waterborne acrylic, I'd probably use PPG's Breakthrough.
