I Always Use Protection

When it comes to protecting your valuables (walls, trim, doors) my company always uses protection. Last week we completed a stained concrete floor in a very impressive residential dwelling. The new construction building is being built as a guesthouse and lounge space for a Lima, OH family. Nestled only a short walk from their house this building overlooks their large pond and woods. The design of the interior space brings nature inside with historic beams from a cabin once owned by Andrew Jackson, horizontal poplar wood planks, a stone fireplace, and timbers that were cut from the property. Everything was already completed in the room including the finely finished base molding.

The project included stripping a current sealer from the floor, etching the surface, staining the concrete and our 2-part sealing system. Many of the materials used on the floor could have easily removed the finish from the walls or trim so it was very important that they were properly protected. We take great care when protecting surfaces inside the home so this was no problem at all. A strip of painters tape was applied to the molding, 3 feet of plastic was hung and then waterproof tape was applied to the whole perimeter. So what happened after we finished the work and removed the tape? Nothing, the trim and walls were properly protected and looked great. Thank you to the guys who take the time to make sure that this preventive step is properly done.
