    I don't find welding rubber to any more taxing then other floors, but I have zero experience with the product you mention. For me, the tricky part of welding vinyl came with the newer products, the right welding tip fixed that.

    Thats good for you! I run into guys all the time that claim to be making WAY more then I do, but, its easy to claim, but seldom proved. I would much rather heat weld and get paid 3 bucks a ft, then do residential vinyl, make nothing for the seams, and have to pay for the product and the time, to seal them. Its all perspective.

    For a small job, it is easy to get $5 per ft..........30 ft on a job just add $150.
    On the bigger jobs with hundreds or thousands of ft is when the price comes way down.

    I don't think you'll notice a difference actually welding that product because you're still only welding the vinyl itself, but that product has a 5mm crumb rubber back to it and that means it's about 5/16" overall thickness so it's going to be a bit heavy and potentially harder to cut and align. Similar to but not quite as heavy as a 3/8" crumb rubber sheet floor.

    On the jobs I do if I could get $5 a foot to weld that's all I'd ever do and I'd retire filthy rich in a couple of years.

    The job I did we didn't heat weld. Looks better that way.
