Marmolium Insallation done.

[ATTACH]p[/ATTACH]First I'll start by saying this isn't for the novice. It's far to easy to screw it up and the material cost is high. I have enough of a construction background to be dangerous. Making mistakes is part of the learning curve. The 19' sheet of Marmolium was $680 and $56 for a gallon of glue. I was quoted $200 for the install. Get quotes and do the math for yourself. It worked out for me but could've went sideways easy. I measured everything at least 3 times. Luckily I was smart enough to save the front and rear templates from the subfloor install. I used a butcher type of paper. Wished I would've spent a little more (50). For a heavier card board material.
Marked everything in pencil and changed the blade on the utility knife often. Blades are cheap. Cut the sides on the lines, left an extra 1/4" on the ends. Figured that would be the problem points because of the radius.

Measurements were very good. The dry fit went well very little trimming needed. My trailer is gutted. This product is only 6' 7" wide. I put the seam on the back wall (curb side). It will be total covered so no issues there. So far so good. The glue has the consistency of pudding, it's Marmolium glue that must be used with Marmolium. It spreads easy with a 1/16 notched trowel. I started in the front as I had a 1 1/4" piece that extended into the doorway.
I rolled the sheet back spread the glue over the front third of the floor. You would have the impression that you would be able to slide the sheet on the glue. Wrong! It says adhesive on the label for a reason. Make sure it's going to roll back exactly where you want it. When it's down it's not moving. I had to roll it back. Creased it (tare) and ripped it at the wheel well cut out. The tare is 1/2" right in the entryway. The rip is 2" but won't be seen.

The rest went easy. Had to rent a 100 lb. roller. $10. It looks really nice. Would I do it again? Yes. But I'm willing to trade imperfections for knowing I did it myself. Again I consider myself experienced in construction and this stressed me out. But it turned out nice. Sorry for the long post. Hit me up with any questions. I'd love to help the next guy.

Laying our Marmoleum

Thanks for posting your experience with your marmoleum installation. We are installing "Shell" marmoleum in our "74" Tradewind. I did not totally gut the interior so using a template was a necessity. Layout and cutting went smoothly. I did go through a few knife blades. Will be interested to see how it looks once installed. Should make a big difference...and it feels good underfoot.

Oh it will make a big differance! May I add to have at least 2 additional hands to help. I did mine by myself. Another mistake. Also I was scared to death about getting the glue on the finished surface. No worries, just have a wet towel. It wipes right off. Good luck and I'm sure you'll be happy with the results!
