New floor protection while moving in

I am having engineered wood floors installed in my new home while it is being built. I was wondering how I can protect the new floors while I'm moving it. I was wondering if covering them with Resin Paper would work or is there something else that I can use to cover them so they don't get scratched up before we even get done moving.

Thank you in advance

Welcome to the forums. Rosin paper is good, as are cloth drop cloths. Footies, found at better paint stores should be worn by everyone INSIDE the house and taken off as they leave, so they won't track dirt and sand back inside.

Resin or craft paper certainly will not hurt. I used craft paper when I built my house. It's adequate to keep mud off the floor and protect it against minor scratching. It's not much good against heavy items being dropped, dragged or rolled. In heavy traffic areas I'd consider buying the cheapest carpet you can find and lay that down as a runner.
