Protecting my floors during construction.

Allow the surface to dry for 48+ hours with adequate cross-ventilation. Cover the floors with red rosin paper. For extra security and to prevent dents, use ¼” Masonite® (smooth side facing downward toward the floor) to cover the heavy traffic/work areas (ladders, tools and scaffolds). Once all the trades have completed their projects, pull up the Masonite® and paper.

TIP

Some customers choose to finish the floor with all but the last coat of finish. After the trades have completed their projects, pull up the Masonite® and paper. Clean the floors with TSP and water; perform a clear water rinse and let dry for 24 hours in a well ventilated area; apply the last and final coat(s).
