not preping the work area can lead to unplanned for work cleaning up accidental damage « »

Take time to prep

We recently replaced some windows, which required a lot of messy demolition. I was so eager to get started that I didn't take 20 minutes to cover the floors. The area in front of the windows got trashed. I had previously planned to give the floors an inexpensive screening and recoating; now I need a full-on sanding and refinishing job.
