I live in south Texas. We are plannin on building a covered patio. I don't want the cover to be attached to the house, Just right up next to it (due to hurricanes--just rather have it blow away it it happens, other than tear the Hardy Board on the house also!) I am looking for ideas, I want it 12x12. What is the best flooring option (heat/slippery when wet?) Any web sites for actual measurments on wood needed?
