    Hello, I have a new wooden shed. I would appreciate any recommendations on what is best to lay over the wooden floor to protect it? It has a concrete paver base and sits on a wooden riser. This is a question for the interior floor.

    I was going to lay rubber flooring but thought that this will likely just make it rot. Thanks!!

    I use scraps of carpet near the door, and sometimes a strip along the main walkway(s). Replace as and when you get another scrap from somewhere else.

    To protect from dirt, grease etc as bikes will be stored inside. I was worried rubber on top of wood would trap moisture and cause rot below... rubber over concrete is different. Thanks for suggestions for re carpet. Its pressure treated wood already so I will paint ot to seal then lay something over to protect wood
