The T-X268 Threshold Tape has always been one of Builders Site Protection's best-selling products. Now a new customer testimonial explains why! Teri Coulson of The Window Gal, LLC recently used T-X268 for a project that required protection for sliding door thresholds. Although she was convinced the sliding door would not be able to go over the threshold tape, she was soon proved otherwise!
"This Window Gal is one happy camper. We went to the jobsite and placed the UV tape on the swinging door threshold. [The homeowner] asked if we had anything for the pocketing multislide or the regular sliding door. I told them I didn't think the doors would be able to slide over the tape. Guess What. I was WRONG! We put the tape down over the tracks and then sliced it so that it we could fold it down into the channels, and then we placed another piece down in the channel itself. The door still SLIDES! The tape is slick enough that the rollers still roll, and the channel in the panel itself glides right past and over the tape. It's great! We also put one on the regular sliding door with a standard sliding doors sill, and even IT still slides. It's a little harder to slide it, but the tradeoff in what the finished door sill will look like 6 to 8 months from now is well worth it."
Teri included the following photos which illustrate just how amazing the T-X268 Threshold Tape really is when it comes to protecting sliders.
Joseph A. Blum, a retired boilermaker, spent 15 years photographing the construction of the new San Francisco Bay Bridge and the men who built it. In his photos, Blum manages to capture the dangerous work along with rare and incredible photos of the bay. Blum stated that it was his great respect for blue-collar workers that inspired him to take on the project. Check out the video above to learn more!
Builders Site Protection has published a new article! How Homeowners can Accurately Compare Bids on Custom Home Construction and Remodeling is a how-to article written by Pat Mullen, President of Builders Site Protection. Homeowners are often told to get at least three bids before beginning a remodeling project or building a custom home. These bids are only useful, however, if homeowners know exactly what steps to take, which questions to ask, and which companies to approach for the best rates and workmanship. To learn more about comparing bids check out our article at the following link!
Brrrrrrr! With below freezing temperatures sweeping the nation, many builders are trying to figure out the best way to winterize their job sites.

Builders Site Protection is a supplier of erosion control products that will ensure soil stability through the stormy winter weather.
