Dek: Using scrap flooring to protect your new floors


Graham Torrie of Align Developments Ltd. in Cochrane, Alta., shares this floor protection tip

We came up with a simple reusable solution to protect floors on projects where we need to travel over finished surfaces. We approached our local flooring supplier and requested to purchase any leftover premium linoleum flooring. We had it cut into 36″-wide strips that are 12′ long. They can easily be trimmed to length to fit any configuration of walkway. Plus, they are a one-time investment that can last for years.
