Three Benefits of Drywall Corner Protectors

When we talk about hitting the end of something, we tend to talk about "running into a wall." That's because we think of walls as sturdy, impenetrable obstacles. This may be true of brick or cinder-block walls, but drywall is actually not a very sturdy substance. Dry wall can be scratched, chipped or punctured.

In a contest between the human fist and a brick wall, the human fist will lose. In a contest with drywall, the fist will win.  Since drywall is one of the most vulnerable types of walls, it would be in your best interest to ensure that your drywall is protected.

Three Benefits of Drywall Corner Protectors:

1. Peace of mind. Owning a home or small business can cause worry. Knowing that the corners of your high-traffic areas are taken care of is one less concern crowding your mind. 

2. Less costly mistakes. From time to time, we're all going to miscalculate distance or drop something heavy. Mistakes happen. Whether or not those mistakes cause a lot of damage or a little damage can often be the result of preparation. Installing drywall corner protectors can help bring down repair costs by shielding vulnerable corners from damage. 

3. Opportunity to accessorize. Any fashion guru will tell you that accessories bring together the look. The same is true for rooms. Installing corner guards around the edges of your rooms will not only keep your corners pristine but will also provide the opportunity to accent your rooms with a hint of shine.

Do You Need Wall Guards? A Helpful Checklist

Perhaps when you hear the term wall guardsyou think warehouses, industrial complexes, and storage facilities. You imagine that wall guards would come in handy in places where fork lifts are used to move pallets around while burly workers move large boxes with hand trucks. 

Such places can benefit from wall guards, of course, but they are not the only ones. The following checklist will help you to evaluate your own potential need for wall guards.

Do You Need Wall Guards? A Helpful Checklist:

1. Do you have a home or small business? If you have a home of small business, then chances are high that the space in which you live and work has corners. (Completely round buildings are rare. We've checked.) If your home or office has corners, then those corners are vulnerable. Vulnerable corners can be protected by wall guards. Boss Corner Guards are available in many materials, finishes and sizes to suit nearly every situation.

2. Are you human? We hope so - or how are you reading this?  To err, as they say, is human. No matter how careful you are to take care of your space, you will occasionally still drop things, bump into walls, and scrape the paint. Such incidental mistakes are part of life, but the good news is that installing wall guards can mitigate the damage. To err is human, but to install wall guards is divine. 

3. Do other people or pets share space with you? Increasing the number of people sharing a home or office only increases the odds for wear and tear. More people mean more mistakes, and more mistakes mean an even greater need for wall guards. Pets can be rough on corners too, scratching and wearing them
