While there are both natural fiber and synthetic outdoor carpets several kinds of plastic-based textiles are the most common materials. Synthetic outdoor carpets also tend to be cheaper than their natural counterparts although some people prefer using grass mat - based carpeting. The main purpose of outdoor carpets is to cover up concrete flooring which is both unsightly and uncomfortable to walk on. With an outdoor carpet you will both get the practical effect of a more comfortable and safer surface and the aesthetic pleasure of nicer surroundings. Outdoor carpeting are often the first step to personalizing the outside area of your house to your tastes.
It is best to use glue on outdoor carpet and in high traffic areas. If you are using tape place the tape around the edges of the room. Do not remove the protective paper from the tape. Next you should place a 6" by 6" X of tape in the room spacing every 2". The next step is to center the DIY carpeting in the room. Allow the excess to run up the wall. Fold the carpet on top of itself. Next either remove the protective cover over the tape or apply the glue to the subfloor with a trowel. Unroll the doubled the carpet onto the area. Repeat these steps for the other side. Once this is done smooth out the carpet and trim. Make sure to cut parallel to the floor making Vs for the corners. Walk along the edges to make it stick better. Trim loose strings along the edges. Use a metal binder strip or an aluminum saddle for the door ways
Turf and grass outdoor carpets are designed as one would imagine to simulate grass. Like marine carpeting this type is also highly resistant to the elements. One of the drawbacks to turf and grass carpeting is the fact that it is generally only available in squares which can create a large amount of seeming when compared to marine carpeting. This does however allow for the easy replacement of certain areas of carpeting affected by wear and tear as it is much more convenient to replace a few squares versus replacing an entire area. Turf and grass carpeting generally comes with a sticky backing that can simply be peeled away prior to applying the square to the designated area. Because it is designed to look like grass and its color availability is limited this type may not be the best choice for use in the home but is well suited for strictly outdoor use or where color is not an issue.
The other big family of outdoor carpets is based on imitating indoor styles but adding waterproofing. The materials are mostly synthetic but plant-based or woolen outdoor carpets also exist. Most have a water-repellent backing and are treated to be highly mold-resistant. Plush outdoor carpets are available in different grades and you should judge them according to similar criteria than indoor ones. How thick are they? How many knots per square centimeter? What size? How is the finishing? Plus make sure to note their water-resistance. Ask if the carpet is sunlight resistant and if it has moisture resistant marine backing. These are the most important things to consider when buying outdoor carpet that will be subject to a lot of moisture. You can expect that the price will increase proportionally to density size and similar criteria.
