The Drop-N-Flop was born out of a real life frustration stemming from a bathroom remodel. We had just moved into a new house and the Master Bath was severely dated and needed a complete gutting and remodel. Over the course of the project I ended up framing, moving pluming, Dry walling, flooring (porcelain tile), and lastly painting. Each part of the project was no small endeavor which brings me to what happened next.
It was time to paint the walls. My drop cloth that I own is 9x12, pretty common size. I had come all the way through the project to one of the last task, painting. As I contemplated going to the garage and pulling out my burdensome drop cloth to protect my new tile floor from paint, I said to myself, “I’ll just be really careful”. The thought of putting down that cloth and using a step ladder on it, etc.… Just seemed like more trouble than it was worth at the time.
24 Hours later I was on my hands and knees with a flat head screwdriver picking little paint droplets off the floor. I thought how stupid it was that I was spending more time working on that than what it would have been if I just put down some protection. I then thought uncomfortable it was on my knees, even if I had put a cloth down, as well as the ever present gap along the wall and in the corner that is impossible to get a cloth to cover without using tape.
I got to thinking there has to be a better way. After contemplating an alternative system for my project, I assembled some pieces and built a prototype. I shared the prototype with a friend who ran a painting business. His comment was that it is a game changer for the amount of time it would save his guys. That was enough for me.
Both DIY and Commercial customers all agree, the Drop-N-Flop is a tremendous convenience, and offers benefits simply not had in a drop cloth. Try one out, we think you’ll agree!
