Don’t Get Stuck Without Ground Protection Mats
When working on outdoor projects,?it’s important to consider ground protection.?Landscape?damaged by heavy equipment?can be?expensive?to repair.?Plus,?uneven or muddy ground at job sites may?cause project delays?or stoppage.?But?what should you use to?protect?soft or sensitive ground conditions?

Wise contractors know plywood?isn’t the right choice.?There are several reasons why plywood isn’t?suitable?for ground protection.?It’s very porous,?which causes?it?to?absorb water?and makes the wood?heavy and weak.?It also absorbs and leaches oils, fluids and chemicals. Exposure to weather often accelerates the speed at which?plywood?rots or cracks,?meaning it?frequently needs to be replaced.

While it may seem like a cheap ground protection solution, plywood’s short life cycle means it’s more expensive over time. The approximate cost of replacing 12 sheets of plywood, four times a year,?is more than $2,000 annually.?
