trafficmaster flooring on patio????


Hi everyone,
I have a concrete slab outside (12x8) and I am trying to use trafficmaster allure to cover it.
I know it is not ment for outside but I still want to try.
Even if it only lasts me one or 2 years.
I was thinking to put down some ROBERTS Harmony Premium 3-In-1 Underlayment, For Laminate And Wood Floors first.
I am hoping that will take care of the moisture that might collect.
And on the seams i was gonna use some clear silicon to really seal it off good.
Do you think this is duable?

If you step on it when it's cold outside, Allure will break.

I would be surprised if it lasted more than a few months/rainstorms.

Rather then a few months I'd say a few rainstorms will do it in
(ah - that was also stated)

So when You say that it won't last....what do you think will happen?
Are we talking about the glue not holding on anymore, will it crack or what could happen?

Alexandra - just listen to the others here.... look instead into something like this: http://www.weatherdek.com/
I have nothing to do with them, never used it, but saw stuff like this in Europe. It works.
