Need to Cover an Old Floor in a Large Space? Consider These Surfacing Options


If you have a large space where you need to quickly cover the floors because they are damaged or have other complications, and you don't want to spend a lot of money, there are a few different options to consider. If you need something that is simple and easy for the installers to put into place, but that will still protect the subfloor and work as the flooring cover that you need, talk with experts about these three floor surfacing options.

Rubber Coverings

If you are looking something that is softer and that will absorb sound well, rubber is a great option. Not only does rubber provide a cushioned surface that is comfortable to walk on or even sit on, but it is also water resistant and durable. Rubber floor surfacing comes in a variety of options, including as thin as a vinyl or something as thick as a half inch rubber covering.

The amount of thickness and style is up to you. This can also be textured to protect against slip and falls in the workspace or when the ground is wet.

Wood Coverings

If you like how a hardwood floor looks but you don't want to invest the money to get a hardwood put into the space, engineered wood covering options may be better for you. These flooring options are durable, available in different wood grains and stains, and easy to clean They also have a protective padding underneath for shock and sound absorption. If you think that wood is the way that you want to go, look at the floating wood floors that you can have put in, and see if you can stay under budget.

Surface Protectant Covering

If you want something that is thin and sheer that will just be a thin coating or covering over the floor, ask the floor covering company about hard surface protection tape. This will easily go on over the floors and will protect them from scratches and other damage. This is best if you have a concrete or stone floor.

There are a lot of products and materials that you can use to quickly cover an existing floor in an older space, you will just want to set your budget and figure out what is the best option for you. Talk with a floor covering team to see what option they think would be best for the type of space you have.
