It’s typical to focus on the “after” of a remodel—the finished space, exactly outfitted to your specifications—and forget about the decidedly unglamorous parts of the construction process. Trimaco does focus on that part and offers a comprehensive collection of made-in-the-USA products designed to protect your home’s surfaces and minimize dust during a remodel. Here’s a look at their offerings:
Trimaco has been in business since 1906, supplying building protection tools for both commercial jobs and personal projects. The company is based in Morrisville, North Carolina, and makes all of its products in manufacturing plants throughout the US. To find a retailer near you, visit Trimaco’s Where to Buy page.
Trimaco makes an extensive line of surface protection products designed to protect floors and countertops from dust, spills, impact, and general wear during a remodel. Trimaco surface protection is suitable for use on all kinds of floors and counters. Several products, X-Paper included, are also breathable—which means that recently finished surfaces can continue to cure while covered.
Trimaco’s Stay Put Canvas Dropcloths use three-layer construction for improved leak and slip-resistance. The company’s nonslip technology, called “Stay Put,” keeps the dropcloth in place, even on stairs.
If construction dust is a concern during your remodel (it will be if you’re doing any construction, demolition, or drywall sanding), a dust containment system is imperative to protect your furniture, rugs, and floors. For these situations, Trimaco makes easy-to-use Dust Containment Poles that turn plastic sheeting into instant dust containment barriers.
If you’re embarking on (or in the midst of) a remodel, be sure to check out Trimaco’s line of surface protection. The company even has a YouTube channel full of instructional videos with helpful tips about using each product.
