Fools!!!!
For that many dings, yes. I suppose they thought they were good with the cardboard. But it doesn't take much given the weight and point load when it hits. The floors are beat to heck. We had covered everything early morning so didn't catch it until afterward. Ugh.

For the right price.
Youve likely seen that before, right?

After 19 years of sanding floors, there's not much I haven't seen, or fixed. But most of the damage I repair, was caused by the HO.

Side note: this morning I went to do a small apartment job and entered to see a nice, fresh puddle at the side of the couch on parquet floors. Acted like I never saw (or smelled) it. Nice doggie!

Re: Name The Tool.


If that damage was caused by a carpenter setting a saw down on a finish floor he needs a azz whupping and a new employer....

Re: Name The Tool.


Seems to me the "tool" is the moron using the saw.....

And where was the contractor when the "tool" was dropping the dang saw?
On any project with floors to protect I demand osb plywood or 1/8 hardboard paneling over rosin paper under EVERY work area requiring the use of ANY power too, scaffolding or ladders etc...

It's cheap re usable insurance

Re: Name The Tool.


Weve grown to rely on thermoply. Does a good job, but not as good as ply/masonite, but better than ramboard, rosin paper and the likes. Easy to move, store, and cut. And cheaper.

Re: Name The Tool.


A long time ago, I worked with a framer that was nearing retirement. He was about 60 and had been framing for about 30+ years. He used an old worm drive skil saw. When he was done cutting, he would let go of the saw. It would fall from sawhorse height and bounce off the sub-floor. Everytime. He never set the saw down.

Of course I didn't know what the marks were from and I'm sure they weren't dropping their saw. Just reminded me of the "Dinger."

Re: Name The Tool.


I would say the trades had a cut station without protection at this spot. And that was caused by dropping materials.

Re: Name The Tool.


In case anyone missed it, they are guard marks from a circular saw, and maybe a few from the shoe.

It turns out they also chipped off a couple square inches of the slate countertops in the kitchen . It was hidden under a piece of drywall taped onto the counters as a work surface.

Client returns from a trip tomorrow. This will be interesting.

Re: Name The Tool.


I did a basement reno recently that had pretty new carpet in it. The padding under it was very high quality and in perfect shape, so I cut it into 2 foot squares and kept it. Now I have 400sqft of padded tiles, perfect for covering floors in small areas like halls and baths where hardboard isn't practical. Price was right too.

Re: Name The Tool.


Someone must not like their circular saw. To catch the part of the guard like that, their shoe much be way out of whack.

Not catching anything. That's just from putting the tool down after cuts (when guard is closed).
