Are You Making These Surface Protection Mistakes?

When taking on a project, surface protection may not be your first thought. But it should be. Protecting surfaces not only saves you time and money on site - it could also save your reputation too.

No Protection

Some companies decide not to protect surfaces and they'll simply deal with any issues that arise. This can be a time-consuming and expensive decision.

Dust, dirt and mortar build up during construction and when the time comes to handover, this could lead to (at best) additional cleaning and (at worst) repairs and replacements. If repairs and replacements are needed - this will also delay handover, resulting in penalty charges.

Protective Film

A common surface protection method is protective film, however, most users find bothersome traits from this protection, such as;

- Time-consuming application (cutting to size and removing air bubbles)

- Loses adhesion quickly and may need reapplying every 4-6 weeks.

- Residue is left on the surface after removing the film

Protective Board

Another well-known protection method is protective board, which brings its own problematic traits on-site;

- Unsuitable for shaped surfaces

- Time-consuming application (cutting to size and taping down)

- Does not allow much light in

- Dust and debris can get behind it
