Top 3 Ways Paper Reinforces Construction Sites

Paper Covering Marble FloorsBig construction jobs require heavy duty players. But the most important tool in a builder’s tool belt could be a roll of paper. Different types of paper are playing a big role at construction sites while reinforcing results.

Here are the top 3 ways paper boosts construction sites:

Protection

Builders want to ensure their valuable marble, hardwood, tile and granite surfaces stay pristine during construction. The best way to avoid damage and stains is to cover floors and surfaces with reinforced kraft paper (also known as scrim). Ordinary kraft paper can tear and allow liquids to seep through but the poly coating on reinforced kraft paper provides a moisture barrier and resists tearing. Red rosin paper traditionally used in construction bleeds when wet and can stain the surface it was supposed to protect.

Just like kraft paper, reinforced kraft paper is easy to use: just roll it out, trim to fit and tape the seams. This waterproof paper has you covered anywhere you need protection: floors, counters, fixtures, fireplace mantels and more.

Safety

Construction sites are often prime targets for theft and vandalism since they house valuable items such as tools and materials. These items are often left in a place without constant supervision. Keep windows covered with kraft paper to prevent curious onlookers from taking inventory of your construction site.

The paper covering does double duty in protecting the windows from drywall and paint splatters.

Promotion

Take advantage of the promotional opportunity paper window covering provides and turn your construction site into a “Coming Soon” billboard. Kraft paper window coverings custom-printed with graphics not only block people from seeing an unfinished site but provide a preview of what is coming.

Custom kraft paper as a window covering is a cost effective alternative to building a whole construction barricade because it goes up and can be taken down easily once you are ready to open.
