It does contrast nicely off the water.

Well, it is a product for wet kitchen floors.

He probably used 55 gallons of adhesive to install the floor tiles on the roof…LOL!

Larry, I believe that might be linoleum with a square imprint. That would make it a little more water tight. Don’t know what ultra violet rays will do to it though.

You are probably right, Marcel…thanks.

That’s what I was thinking, the exposure to sunlight over time will probably deteriorate it. Who knows maybe they discovered something new to the roofing world and by 2030 everyone will have floor tiles or linoleum as their roofing material :relieved:

There is no eventually about it. Linoleum is basically plastic. It would be a matter of when it will begin deteriorating not if. Regardless, a very interesting find…

Years ago at a home show I saw a sheet goods product that was marketed for use on flat roofs and decks. I don’t think it ever got much traction as I don’t recall ever running into it again.

They still make it Jim,

Actually;
Linoleum is a term used for a smooth floor covering made from a solidified mixture of linseed oil, flax, cork, wood flour and pigments, pressed between heavy rollers onto a canvas backing.

ceramic, clay & natural stone for roof-deck covering
i’d report open seams & prone to leakage & uv damage if stick-on vinyl or seamed sheet goods
if that’s intended as a pedestrian surface the obvious absence of a guardrail is a known safety hazard

Excellent read and history lesson Marcel. Thanks! It’s interesting to see how things are discovered and developed, especially when an oops turns into something beneficial. :thinking::smirk::smiley::smiley::+1::+1: Learned something new today…
