I am doing a new build. The floor is burnished concrete done by High Trowel finish during concrete pour. I need to protect the floor afterwards. What is the best way to protect a burnished concrete floor during construction? Any ideas?

Plywood. Lay down some sheets and connect them together to stop them shifting if you want to keep them there for a significant period.

  • +1 and for belt & suspenders, roll cardboard (like Ramboard), then plywood. Expensive combo, but pretty follproof.
