We had been looking at Marmoleum for our kitchen floor for a while, because our existing floor had ugly beige glued-on carpet that needed to go. But our renovation schedule became much more urgent when we hosted an acquaintance's dog. This dog had a fondness for digging, and she proceeded to excavate a huge section of our kitchen carpet, exposing the two layers of older flooring underneath. To make matters worse, the mastic for the middle layer of flooring tested positive for asbestos, so we had to get this taken care of ASAP. We chose sheet Marmoleum at Flooring America (with lots of patient assistance from Edward, a sales rep there) after carefully considering several other options, including cork, bamboo, vinyl, and ceramic tile. First we called in an asbestos abatement contractor, who moved out the appliances and safely removed all layers of old flooring. The next morning, the certified Marmoleum installer from Flooring America came and installed the underlayment and the flooring. All told, the job took about two and a half days. It was very clear that Kenton, the installer, was experienced, detail-oriented, methodical, and knew exactly what he was doing. We are very much a do-it-yourself household, but I choose to hire out work that I feel is too technical and/or labor intensive. This was one of those jobs. The installer expertly joined two large panels of Marmoleum to create a smooth, virtually seamless surface with no gaps whatsoever (i.e., no spaces for dirt and grime to collect). He made a great many complex cuts to fit the Marmoleum sheets in a variety of nooks and crannies throughout the kitchen and half bath, so that the entire kitchen took up just two sheets and the half bath and landing took one sheet each. Before adding the shoe molding (which, again, he carefully cut and mitered to fit properly), he also added silicone in the corners where water spillage might occur (behind the fridge, sink, toilet, etc.) to help avoid water infiltrating under the Marmoleum. When the flooring was complete, he rolled in the large appliances using spare sheets of underlayment to prevent their scratching the new floor. It's been over a year now, and the installation has held up beautifully. The Marmoleum has held up extremely well in our fairly high-energy household with two dogs (and their scratchy toenails). Spills are easy to clean and not highly visible (we picked a highly variegated pattern that camouflages dirt). We take reasonable precautions to avoid scratching or gouging the flooring, but it doesn't dominate our lives by any means. We would not hesitate to recommend Flooring America, and Kenton in particular, for flooring installation.
