Yesterday I went to HD and bought two boxes of tough-looking (and heavy)
commercial-grade vinyl composition tiles. But later when I read the
installation instructions, I learned that they warn against installing the
tiles any place where the temperature would get below 50 degrees.
that in sub-freezing weather, the tiles could get quite brittle and could
crack or work loose. The fact that the shed floor is a bit more flexible than
a house subfloor, and that I would be tossing heavy things on it, would only
increase the risk.
So I returned the tiles and adhesive, and decided to
simply paint the floor with some floor paint I had lying around.
HD also had
vinyl flooring in 8x12 rolled-up sheets, but the stuff had extraordinarily
ugly patterns (e.g. fake woodgrain) and the label also warned about unrolling
it when cold.
