I have scoured the internet for answers to this but can not find one. However I think I can ask a more intelligent question now that I have more information.
I have a pool shed (refrigerator, bench and changing area) maybe more than a shed but certainly not a house. There is electric but no climate control. I am in the North East where temperature can fall to 10 Degrees and rise to 95 degrees in a typical year. The shed is approximately 10 X 14 that is divided into two rooms. (4 x 10 and 10 x 10)
The subfloor seems like cement but I am not 100% sure. I want to paint and put flooring down. The old flooring was these tiles that were paper thin (vinyl?) that all buckled. Flooring is my question:
I would be happy with anything, carpet, rubber, vinyl plank or anything that is easy to install up to $2 a square foot. I looked at those vinyl planks but apparently they will have major contraction during winter (when it is unused) and can buckle, not to mention that all the instructions say not for outdoor non-climate spaces. I am not worried about the warranty just wether it will hold for five years at least. https://www.homedepot.com/p/LifeProof-Sterling-Oak-8-7-in-x-47-6-in-Luxury-Vinyl-Plank-Flooring-20-06-sq-ft-case-I966106L/300699284?cm_sp=BazVoice-_-QA_PQRDR--300699284--x
The floors people use for garages and or gyms that are rubber, I get the feeling they are not made to be trimmed. And with the wall dividing into two rooms I need a tighter fit than giant 12 x 12 tiles I can not trim.
I heard people recommend sheet vinyl but that does not seem like it would hold up and I was thinking about outdoor carpet. Anyone have any suggestions? I looked at questions about garages, cabins, sun-rooms and nothing seems to fit.
