Hardwood Protection Challenges

Hardwood floor protection during construction is critical for maintaining the integrity and appearance of factory-finished hardwood, laminate, and LVT flooring. These materials can unfortunately be easily damaged, dented and scratched during construction and renovation.

Skudo provides hardwood, laminate, and LVT floor protection solutions that deliver superior, long-term protection for these surfaces.

Site-finished hardwood requires specialized attention, and product selection should be discussed with a Skudo technical representative.

*Please speak with your Skudo representative before final product selection, as site conditions can influence the final Skudo product choice, particularly when selecting the right hardwood floor protection during construction.
