August 18, 2006, Newsletter Issue #28: Installing Indoor Outdoor Carpet Tiles

Tip of the Week

Anyone can install their own indoor outdoor carpet tiles. If you're interested in outdoor carpet tips, here is a quick tutorial. First, get a pressure washer to clean off the surface that you will be using. In order to get a good fit, you will want as clean of a surface as possible. Next, examine your surface to which you will be applying the carpet. Make sure there are no loose impediments on the surface that may prevent a tight seal. After that, lay out your indoor outdoor carpet tiles and make the necessary cuts to fit to the surface. Finally, apply the adhesive to the surface. Many indoor outdoor carpet tiles are self-adhesive, so in that case, peel the protective layer off and begin laying in place. If you need, you can rent a hot roller that will help by providing a weight to seal the indoor outdoor carpet tiles to the surface. Thatís it! You are finished and all you have to do now is keep it clean and free from the elements and you will have a comfortable walking surface for years to come.
