Hi David, it is. I purchased it from VTS and the lid is grey, but nothing like the original that fit like a glove over the top. It may have stayed on by itself, but I added a number of Vulkem dabs as well. I may also add a couple of rivets with backing washers to the leading edge, just in case.

Oh, and it didn't leak at all after the second install through some very heavy rain.
Mark

Sub Floor Done

Following the advice of those have gone before, I have added 1/4" sub-floor over my brand new 3/4" plywood to accept the Marmoleum. Glad I did, it was not as smooth as I thought.

First step was to go over the plywood joints with a belt sander to flatten them out.

The Marmoleum supplier didn't think I needed to use the leveler under the new sub floor, but I did anyway. Easy enough to do, spread it and belt sand off any extra. And then re-seal with polyurethane.

I was thinking about going to Home Depot for the plywood sheets, but went with material from the supplier. It seemed more dense then the typical 1/4" underlayment, but a little more expensive as well.

It might seem like I have more joints than necessary, but I arranged it so only two joints will see any foot traffic the rest are buried under furniture. All outside edges got a coat of polyurethane just to be sure.

One more application of leveling compound and a little more belt sanding and I was done. I very much like that the joints in the 3/4" are all completely bridged by the new 1/4" material.

Great prep work for the Marmoleum!

Well done, Mark. Worth all the extra time and care IMO.
