Read Our Latest Press Release About Providing Carpet Film and RamBoard

Builders Site Protection has published our latest press release detailing involvement in two Portland-area projects. These two multifamily projects are among LMC Construction's largest to date.
The Arbory multipurpose project in Beaverton, Oregon
Carpet Film and RamBoard are the focus of the latest press release. Hundreds of thousands of square feet of carpeted and hardwood flooring required protection across two massive multi-use projects. To protect interior hallways RamBoard was used as it is both cost-effective and durable against heavy foot and equipment traffic. Once inside units, carpet film was used to keep carpeting clean and spotless.

Our website features a "Press Releases" tab that conveniently groups all of our past press releases into one easy to read list. You can find everything there from new product releases to awarded scholarship information.

Winter Sale On Red Polyethylene Tape

Floor protection has countless benefits on a jobsite, however its effectiveness is only as good as its ability to stay in place. Regardless of the type of floor finish and floor protection being used, tape is often necessary to keep floor protection in place.
Red Poly Tape, often called "stucco tape", is a construction-grade tape used on just about anything from stucco to corrugated plastic sheets. It has a much stronger adhesive than typical masking tapes, allowing it to be used on a huge variety of materials and textures. Red Poly tape is a 2" x 60 yard tape, and is offered in single rolls, 6 packs, and in quantity discounted cases of 24 rolls.

Due to the high strength of its adhesive many builders prefer to use Red Poly Tape on their floor protection over Ram Board Seam Tape. Corrugated plastic sheets, RamBoard, plastic sheeting, CoverGuard, Painter's Board, and countertop protection can all be securely onto surfaces and seams held together with Red Poly Tape.

This tape is now on sale on our website, where you can find a 6 pack of rolls discounted $15, and a case of 24 discounted over $50.

To learn more about Red Poly Tape, email us at sales@buildsitepro.com or visit our website www.buildsitepro.com

Brush Up On Concrete Surface Protection Options

As commercial construction continues to roar on, surface protection for concrete has become one of the most common requests we receive from builders. Any work to fix or replace concrete is extremely time intensive, and also commonplace as heavy machinery and tools are used on and above finish slabs. Fortunately concrete can be one of the most straightforward finishes to protect on a jobsite.
CoverGuard protecting a hospital floor
RamBoard is among the most popular floor protection products in the industry. Useful on concrete, decorative concrete, hardwood, tile, and just about everything else, RamBoard is the most cost-effective breathable concrete protection available. RamBoard is sold in 38" x 100' rolls, and starts at $54.90/roll, with discounts available on pallet quantities of 16 or greater.

EZ Cover is another leading concrete surface protection option. Breathable and often spec'd in for concrete projects, EZ Cover allows concrete to harden and cure underneath, while providing two layers of impact protection. EZ Cover is the ideal protection for colored slabs and other high-end decorative concrete work.

CoverGuard is a very strong plastic based surface protection, good for use on cured slabs, as it isn't breathable. It is a diamond-plated hard plastic floor protection that can be hosed down and reused, and also cut to shape on a jobsite. CoverGuard is available in three thicknesses, as well as in a fire-resistant formulation for hospital jobsites. CoverGuard is available in 36" and 72" rolls, and we currently stock the 36" rolls.

Surface Protection for Commercial Construction Projects

Commercial construction is booming. Even in metro areas such as Houston where overall building starts are down, commercial construction is thriving. Companies need office space, labs, and auditoriums and commercial contractors are delivering. With this building boom also comes a glut of surface protection issues on jobsites.

Commercial construction projects often run into different jobsite surface protection problems than residential projects do. For example, at the Knight Cancer Center in Portland, Oregon we were tasked with providing protection for specialty lab panels that were made bespoke for this building. Using a mix of our products including DoorGuard Plus and All-Protect we could create the surface protection solution needed. Particularly in hospital and lab settings builders have to construct complicated and custom features unique to that project.

CoverGuard in use on our customer's hospital project in Austin
Large scale concrete floors, glass panels, and lots of doors are the most commonly protected surfaces on commercial projects. Builders have relied on our RamBoard, CoverGuard, and Tuf-Guard for protecting their concrete slabs. Corrugated plastic sheets have been used to protect walls and hallways in military barracks projects and even in university landscaping applications. We custom cut hundreds of corrugated sheets to protect curtain wall components for San Diego's recently completed courthouse.

With a wide variety of products, materials, and applications, just about any commercial finish and surface can be protected from damage. Just because a product for that specific purpose isn't listed on a website or in a catalog doesn't mean that there aren't materials suited to protect it. If you have any surface protection needs let us know, as we've created packages for all manner of finishes, surfaces, and sizes.

Fall Sale on Water-Resistant Surface Protection

To mark the changing of the seasons we're ready to launch our annual fall sale on surface protection designed to keep water and mud off of your jobsite. Shoe Covers, Clean & Safe floor protection, and Walk-off adhesive mats are all on sale. Customers subscribed to our mailing list will receive an email as soon as the sale is live, with links to the featured products.

Shoe Covers are the simplest and easiest way to prevent water damage on finish floors. Plastic shoe covers slide over workboots and are the quickest and most cost-effective way to keep mud off of jobsite floors. Water resistant shoe covers can be bought in packs of 10, 50, and cases of 150 pairs.

The ideal floor protection to combat a wet fall season is Clean & Safe. Both absorbent and water-resistant, Clean & Safe both attracts mud and prevents it from spilling onto the floor beneath. It's also commonly used by painters and interior finish specialists to prevent paint overspray. Furthermore Clean & Safe is reusable ensuring that one roll can be reused and moved around a jobsite as needed. Clean & Safe is sold in a 40" x 164' roll totalling 547 sqft.

Walk-off mats are a popular floor protection and dust control choice for both residential and commercial builders. Sold in packs of 120 total sheets, walk-off mats are placed in front of entryways to limit dust, dirt, and construction debris from being tracked in by workers. Once an adhesive walk-off sheet is covered in dirt, simply pull it off of the pack and another sheet is ready for use.

When combined, floor protection, shoe covers, and walk-off mats create a water tight surface protection system. This prevents falls and accidents, keeps finishes damage free, and also saves time on post-job cleanup.

Stair Damage? Try Our Hard Surface Films

Stairs are some of the most difficult finishes to protect. The vast majority of floor protection products struggle to protect stair treads because they cannot stay attached to the backs of stairs without a laborious process of cutting and taping. While this method works well for protecting stairs and we have had many customers rely on this method with CoverGuard and RamBoard, it is very time intensive.

To save time protecting stairs we recommend using Hard Surface Films. Films feature adhesives which allow them to quickly roll onto and stick onto stairs. Hard Surface Films offer 3-mil protection from dust, boots, and light equipment. While not as strong as plastic or fiber based floor protection products, films make up for it in their ease and versatility of use. Vertical surfaces, undersides of finishes, and a wide variety of finishes can be protected by films. Films can protect tile, wood, granite, rubber, linoleum, and most other solid surfaces.

We offer Hard Surface Film in 24" x 200' rolls and 36" x 500' rolls. Films are rated for 45 day use. If needed for longer, films can be quickly removed and reapplied, ensuring that finishes are protected for the duration of a project.
