can the 4' x 10' black flooring be installed over carpet? How?
Rolled rubber needs to be installed over a hard flat surface. Generally carpet is not a recommended surface for rolled rubber, and it depends on the density of the carpeting. If the carpet is soft the rubber can wave and not lay flat, especially when walked on.
If I lay multiple mats I can lay them close enough but is it still good enough to make it seem seamless as if it is one big sheet?
The seams are very very thin, so this is common to have multiple strips to make your area. View our <a href='/rubber-flooring-rolls/how-to-install-rubber-flooring-mats-tiles-and-rolls.php'>installation guide</a> for rubber.
We recently installed new hickory (engineered) wood floors, finished with a polyurethane/ aluminum oxide coating for wear. Assuming no moisture intrusion, is there a risk of this product staining the wood over time?
We recommend that when installing all rubber material over any hardwood flooring to use a craft paper between the rubber and the hardwood.
