You Could’ve, Would’ve, Should’ve (used us on that project….)


BannerIf you’ve seen TuffWrap® at a recent exhibit, you might recognize this phrase from our latest banner. Honestly, there’s not a phrase we hear more at trade shows or any other time we have the opportunity to speak to new customers. When it comes to reroofing or renovation projects where dust containment was not used, there’s generally some type of story about how dust or debris found its way into something it clearly should not have.

The “Could’ve…” statement is usually followed by:

“Man, I wish we knew you guys existed.” 

And then we hear the full story that usually consists of these three phases of regret.

Could’ve: Temporary protection was not planned for during the early stages of the project lifecycle.

Would’ve: When it was determined that temporary protection might be needed, a solution was researched.  However, either interior protection services were not identified or the budget didn’t allow for the additional costs.

Should’ve: An alternate solution, such as painter’s tape and plastic sheeting, was used to attempt to protect the critical areas – which ultimately failed.

Regardless of the industry or type of facility, the story always ends the same.

“Then dust (dirt, debris etc.) was all over the place and got into everything.”

And there is the lesson to be learned. Regardless of what you call it – temporary partitions, temporary walls or dust barriers – there is no equivalent to or substitute for using a professionally installed dust and debris containment solution.
