Hardwood, Laminate & Vinyl

Protected vs. Unprotected Hardwood

Sealed hardwood, laminate, and vinyl flooring can easily be dented and scratched during construction and renovation, but can also be damaged by inferior protection methods. Skudo is able to protect these surfaces from construction site debris without damaging the floor itself, but unlike tape or other similar products, it will not leave any marks behind.

Most Commonly Used Products for Hardwood, Laminate, & Vinyl

Construction Tack-Mat

SkudoBoard HT

Important Note: Only use Skudo on sealed hardwood with a hard wearing factory finished surface (eg : Aluminum Oxide). If in question, contact Skudo for suitability testing.

Skudo Tack-Mat and SkudoBoard HT are the only products recommended for hardwood, laminate, and vinyl. Use of the Skudo Commercial System is NOT recommended for these surface types. With hardwood, the base coat can potentially cause a tannin-pull (discoloring) issue that cannot be removed. Additionally, many laminate and vinyl products are manufactured using complex combinations of petroleum based materials that could cause bleaching due to the pH of the Base Coat.
