A properly prepared 2 part polyurethane paint will last many years. The key to a quality job is all in the prep work. If you have some skill with a brush you can get a just as good of a finish as with a spray gun. The best method is to have someone roll the paint on and then you come behind and tip out the paint with a brush. If you can do a good job in applying Varnish you should be able to do a good job useing the roll and tip method.
a good LP paint job should last about 8 years or so. I love doing nonskid decks they make polypropylene beads that go right in the paint. It's great look when finished feels good on bare feet as well.
I would not use a system created for commercial use. Use something like Awl Grip, Sterling or other product develop for the boat industry. Imron is OK but does not have the stretch That you will get from a product Like Awl Grip or Streling. pluse Imron can not be brushed.
