I know and old electrician/developer/commercial property manager who
covered the floors in the house he was building with roofing paper
during construction.* Well, it was probably 1/3 tape.* The very last
thing done was the floors.* When he was ready to do the floors he
ripped up all the paper and there was pristeen concrete ready for the
flooring. The paper more than half filled a large roll off
construction dumpster.* (big house)


I've done that with Rosen paper... and if there are finished floors
there is a cardboard product that comes in rolls that offers some dent
protection too. A recent renovation I visited while in process had Ram
Board covering the floors. https://www.americanfloormats.com/ramboard/


Years ago my local Sam's Club allowed me to collect dozens of cardboard
dividers used to separate certain products stacked on pallets. Taped
together they protected the clients flooring during tearout, drywall
replacement, painting, and general foot traffic.

For some reason I don't see those cardboard boxes anymore.
