Above is a Forbo Marmoleum display. An exercise in cutting and fitting Marmoleum inserts.
Above we used a trammel bar with sliding points to gage the width of each colour and section of material as we moved down the hall.
Although the above project was perhaps one of our most challenging jobs, it has also one of the most rewarding. We under-cut all the masonry in order to slide the edges of the Forbo Marmoleum just slightly under the wall. I recall we were asked to reproduce a portion of the design on the concrete in white chalk, to show how we were going to scale up the drawing on site, before we were allowed to cut any of the material. Everything here was cut and fitted on site.
We've used these photo's here to illustrate the incredible impact new flooring can make to an environment.

Featured below are before and after pictures of linoleum alterations and repairs. We removed the pink accent and borders and replaced them with the colour green within an existing field in an institutional corridor.
Along the wall in the above photo we were able to build up the cove with rounded piece of plastic fashioned from the lid to one of our empty adhesive pails. We used Mapei Plani-Patch as a filler to build up the cove to match the existing and troweled it with our home-made curved plastic trowel.

Cutting and fitting around doors and radiators is a little more time consuming with linoleum than soft pliable vinyl but it lasts for years and doesn't shrink.
Forbo Marmoleum can also be installed throughout out the entire home.

Below is well prepared concrete substrate ready for linoleum with most of the old adhesives removed, and all the holes filled. We ran a floor maintainer with a course grit sanding disc to really smooth and clean the concrete prior to applying the new linoleum and adhesive.
The smoother the substrate the better the bond the linoleum will have with the substrate. The smoother the substrate, the better the look and wearability of your floor finish.
