I like Discount Builders, and would continue prefer them for either smaller
purchases, or when its not worth the time to drive to Home Depo or Lowes.
 But for a purchase the size of 40 gallons of Polyurethane, I'd look for
other options.   This is one option at HomeDepo


$97.00 / each
*Ship to Home*
Estimated Arrival:

JUL 25 - JUL 29

> * 1560 feet of duct tape to seal each of the 13 sections for sanding
> * Plenty of sandpaper
> * Brooms for sweeping up dust (NB has a ton of these already)
> * Caulk and caulking guns to plug major holes and cracks
> * Mops and buckets for scrubbing and cleaning
> * Rollers and long handles for polyurethane application
> * Roller trays for the rollers
> * Roller covers
> * Trash bags to wrap rollers in between sections and coats to prevent them

> * Two orbital sander rentals
> * An edger rental
> * Delivery of equipment
