BSP supplying Pacific Northwest schools and hospitals with surface protection

Pat recently traveled to Seattle, WA and Portland, OR to check out a few new construction projects that need Builders Site Protection’s award-winning surface protection. Builders Site Protection is currently supplying Coverguard surface protection to the Lakeside school in Seattle, where Microsoft co-founders Bill Gates and Paul Allan went to high school. The school is building a new state-of-the-art media center and used Coverguard to protect the counter tops. The Pacific Northwest is experiencing an increase in hospital, school, and government building expansion and renovation projects. Builders Site Protection looks forward to supplying high quality and cost effective surface protection products for each of these projects.

Also, since many of our northwest customers are on the forefront of saving the environment, we have also joined the cause to limit construction waste and save trees.

Home improvement tips: how to hire a good contractor

Remodeling a home can be stressful, especially when your contractor is unreliable. Finding the right person to undertake your project can make the difference between a smooth, successful remodel and a hellish one. Here are a few simple tips to keep in mind:

1)      Talk to friends and family to get recommendations and referrals. Check out online resources such as or to get a good idea of which local contractor is right for your project.
2)      Get at least three written estimates. Make sure the contractor does a thorough evaluation on what needs to be done. After choosing someone, make sure to draw up a written contract specifying materials, warranties, timetables, subcontractors, and other important information.
3)      Make sure the contractor and their subcontractors are insured. If they are not, you could be liable for paying workers’ compensation. Also, check with your insurance company to ensure you are covered for any injury or damage that may occur.
4)      Insist the contractor uses surface protection. This will prevent valuable fixtures from being damaged and will ensure your project is completed on time and within budget. Visit for effective surface protection  products that will help your project run smoothly
