Commercial Door Protection; Our Newest Product

Piggybacking off the success of our popular DoorGuard, we have created a new larger version of DoorGuard. This is designed to provide protection for wide commercial doors. Wide doors are commonly found in hospitals, universities, and numerous other commercial buildings. This will be the first product on market designed specifically to protect wide commercial doors; none of our competitors offer a comparable product.

4' Wide doors like these are commonplace in hospitals
In fact, we have already sold our first two orders of Commercial DoorGuard. One to a hospital project in Texas and  the other to a hospital project in North Carolina; so we're confident that the new DoorGuard will be a great product to carry. Multiple superintendents and door installers have asked us to carry protection for wider commercial doors, and we now do.

We will shortly be receiving our first shipment of the new Commercial DoorGuard, at which point we'll have pictures, specs, and links to our website featuring our new product during its full-scale media rollout. Though Commercial DoorGuard is not yet on our website, you can always visit to learn more about the surface protection solutions we offer.

Economy Coverguard Hard Surface Protection; Take A Look At Our New Press Release

We have recently detailed our newest product, Orange CoverGuard, and we have now produced a press release regarding this new product.

Orange CoverGuard protecting Terrazzo flooring
In short, Orange CoverGuard retains its re-usability and toughness but eschews its fire-resistant capabilities in favor of being 30% cheaper. This makes it a perfect application for residential and light-commercial construction projects. Like standard CoverGuard, the 3' x 393' rolls of Orange CoverGuard is offered in three thicknesses, 10 mil, 25 mil, and 40 mil. While large-scale hospital, defense, and other similar projects are legally required to use fire-resistant protection, most projects are not; making them perfect for use of new Orange CoverGuard.

Though we've only carried this new product for two weeks, we've already provided it to large and small scale projects. The superintendent for a large J.E. Dunn project in Austin received 52 rolls of Orange CoverGuard and his reviews have been glowing. He's provided us with images of the product being used on his jobsite to protect freshly installed terrazzo flooring.

Immediately apparent is the contrast in color that the bright Orange CoverGuard provides. Illuminating protected surfaces highlights them, subtly reinforcing the need for people to be mindful of preventing damage.

American New-Home Sales Surging

In June, new home sales reached an 8 year peak and represented a staggering 10% increase over June of 2015. While the recovery effort following the 2008 housing collapse took longer than anticipated, it looks as though housing is finally showing its impressive potential.

Easy to see the sudden recession and the slow but steady recovery 
Even more good news was released when moderate home price appreciation was recorded, and that appreciation is currently being forecasted well into the future. This means there remains an incentive to continue building new homes and an incentive to continue buying new homes.

Numerous factors are responsible for housing's strong comeback. Low interest rates are lessening the cost of buying a home, consumer confidence is high (two percentage points higher than predicted, at that. This is largely due to good employment statistics and in smaller part due to low commodity prices such as gasoline) so people are willing to spend, and homebuilders are optimistic about the success of future prospects so new home starts keep increasing.

If anything, the factors restraining the growth of new homebuilding remain a lack of skilled labor and space constraints. Most builders are adamant that skilled labor shortages are limiting their ability to build (a complaint that's likely a combination of frustration at having to pay wages higher than the very low ones they're accustomed to paying, and some truth as many workers left the labor force following the recession), and that finding land to build on is increasingly difficult. These two factors have led to a supply of new homes that is currently 20% below average.

In all, new homebuilding trends look very good. People want to buy homes, and builders feel comfortable building homes. While it may be a little more diffiuclt than before to build, there is more incentive to do so than in years past.

We Now Offer Free Samples Of TubCoat, Our Temporary Tub Protection Solution.

Since we began distributing TubCoat a few years ago, its popularity and usage has steadily grown. Back then, there were very few options available designed to protect tubs. However, TubCoat is a perfect tub protection product.

TubCoat being removed in one solid layer
Applied either by roller or by aerosol spray, TubCoat adheres to a tub much like paint does. Once dry, TubCoat forms a hard layer that can withstand impact damages and scratches from sharp objects such as screws, nails, drywall etc... It has been thoroughly tested and created specifically to resist damage from nails and screws being stepped on and driven into a tub by a workboot.

To better show potential customers how TubCoat works, we now offer free samples of the dried and finished product applied to a sheet of carbonate plastic. To request your sample, just email us at or visit our website to request a catalog and sample at
