Youjou – any layer or film of protection secured to finished surfaces, floors, counters, etc, for the duration of the construction phase. Most youjou is disposal and is simply taped to the surface in question, while others are more durable, and though taped in a similar way, are leased.

The tape shown below is manufactured specifically for the purpose of taping directly to finished surfaces and therefore has lower adhesive qualities. If other tape is used, you run the risk of peeling up the finished surface with the tape when you remove the youjou.
