Mistake #4 – Protection

Tubs are a magnet for trash, and are easily scratched. Rookie mistake.

Experienced Builders protecting their tubs. The easy method is using a scratch protection strippable film like this.

I also like to make a platform so the drywall guys aren’t standing on the tub.

We went a bit light on the “tub coat” protective film, but we’re about to cover this tub.

A sheet of left over 3/4? foam works great on top, then …

We use a sheet of OSB for a skirt cover with some 2x’s vertically.

Finally a top sheet of OSB and this tub is fully protected for the duration of construction!
