That weight isn't bad.
You probably will want to save some extra little pieces in case that one at the door is a problem. I could see that coming out of there or just getting too much traffic. Seems tricky for sure to get something in there that will stay put.

Jim, had you considered just moving the screen door up the thickness of the flooring, and going under it?

I did not want to mess with the track on the floor, it seems like it would e hard to shorten it 1/4"? I'm not that familiar with these type of screens. I did however remove the table leg supports and will reattach thru the floor, may have to get longer screws. But not too long!!! Not sure where my grey tank is. Actually it may look better to cut the wood around the supports, give it a recessed look? what do you think of that idea?

I would likely put the table supports back on the new flooring with a bit longer screws. You would have a bad dirt trap if you cut around them.

I put down a manufactured bamboo floor in my house and am very pleased on how well it holds up. It is available in a number of colors...

Jim, see photo I provided you when you asked about the gray tank. Don't know where that thread is now.

I was thinking of using bamboo in the house and that's a thought for the Escape. I like it so much. I think it might scratch more though? I was going to put it in a room where we don't usually wear shoes.
