We are just finishing our 18 mo, project of building a log cabin. At others suggestion the floor of the second floor is the cieling of the first floor (2x6 T&G). When sealing the floor the sealant leaked down to the first floor and now we are told the bath needs some different waterproof flooring to fix the problem. I have looked ar tile, laminate and thick sealants and can't determine the best solution. Any help or suggestions would be very helpful. Yours, Jim

I think that unless you want to be continually re-sealing the floor, your best solution will be to underlay with plywood or chipboard then vinyl sheet goods. You might get along for a while with a roll-on multi-coat product- like Varithane with sprinkles for color, but I can't see this being a permanent fix. I thing it'll just crack out along the 2x6 seams.

Why are you sealing the floor? I assume that the flooring is finished (both sides) tongue and groove pine (or hardwood) since it shows as the ceiling on the floor below?

As for the bath, no difference with the exception that the or shower would have a waterproof fiberglass base or a custom built shower pan

I don't think I understand the problem. The sealant leaked down to the first floor? Right through the subfloor? Or around the sides? What kind of sealant? What was it designed to do?

I think bathrooms are also supposed to have a waterproof membrane.

More info

Unfinished 2x6 floor/ceilings were used ,then the floor sanded and sealed with 3 coats of water based poly. They look wonderful and I hate to hide them, however the poly did leak through in small amounts at a few places. The directions for the poly instruct you to pour a line along one wall and squeege(sp.) across the rest of the floor with an applicator. I may have poured too close to the wall where there is a joint but I can't take a chance on that happening with water (three active bathing grandkids or unaware renters). I was also told that a wet towel or rag left on the water based poly for an extended time would produce a white area that would remain for a while.
In short, I feel I have to do something and have always had helpful suggesdtions from Tuggers on very large array of subjects. Thanks again. Yours ,Jim

We have had clear pine floors in our last 2 homes for 20 years. Water can be an issue. I would suggest a couple soats of Urethane that is NOT water based--The sales people will tell you that the water based is just as good but traust me they are wrong. Just roll it on like paint but sand between coats. A clear wood baseboard siliconed to the floor should seal the edges and keep any water on the floor from getting under the walls. Dripping towels may still be an issue but that is the hazard of most floors--not designed for continuous water laying on them:)
