Color-wear layer is too thin and fragile. A new color-wear layer must be added on top.

STAGE 3

Holes and peeling of Color-Wear layer are rip hazzards. The fragile Safety Cushion layer is exposed and rapidly deteriorates. Rotting occurs and spreads. Safety issues are many and serious.

Constant repairs become too costly. Tear out and replacing the surface is required.
