How Long Does Floor Paint Take To Dry?

When painting any floor drying time is a huge factor in what paint you choose. You need to know how long it will be until you can walk on the freshly painted floor.

For this reason, I have picked out the most popular floor paints and gathered all of their drying times. This way you get a nice and easy way to see them all in one place.
