Protection Challenges

Ceramic and porcelain tiles are especially susceptible to damage from ongoing construction activity, including chipping, cracking, and staining from spills. The cost to repair damaged or broken tile can also be extremely costly.

Skudo provides solutions to help protect from these and other construction site traffic related damage for both wall and floor tile installations.
