Construction is tough. Long hours, frequently in weather that is way too hot or way too cold. You have to carry heavy loads, bags of equipment, and your tools. Also they expect you to be creative and solve problems on the fly to keep the job on time. Finally, towards the end of the job you are also expected to do all this and make absolutely sure that nothing happens to the existing or finished surfaces. You are supposed to get your job done and get it done on time, but now you have to be quick and careful? You still have to carry heavy loads and work in hot or cold conditions, but you also have to tiptoe. What you need are tough materials, things that will take care of the site protection, but let you do your job.
Protecting the jobsite is key to making sure that your jobs finish on time and under budget, however you can’t sacrifice your safety or your ability to do your jobs to the best of your ability.
