TARP APPLICATIONS:
Tarps are graded by the color, weave density, denier, UV resistance, corner support and reflectivity. Our tarps use only the best construction features: 
 
Blue Tarp

Economical Blue Tarps have high-density polyethylene  woven centers, poly rope reinforced edge-hems, 30 Micron polyethylene laminations on both sides, waterproof heat-sealed hems/seams and aluminum grommets every 3 feet and in the corners. Each tarp is individually bagged.

Super Heavy Duty Brown Tarps are 16 mils thick, 16x16 weave, 8 oz/sq.yard high-density polyethylene  woven centers, poly rope reinforced edge-hems, UV stabilized both sides, waterproof heat-sealed hems/seams and aluminum grommets every 18" and in the corners. Each tarp is individually bagged. Available in a variety of popular sizes.

How to Tarp A Roof: Emergency Roof Repairs.
Courtesy This Old House

A: Tom Silva replies: Basically, what you want to do is cover the
damage with a woven plastic polyethylene tarp that is held in place with 1x3 wood strips. Here's how I do it. First I roll one end at least twice around a long 1x3, then screw it to the undamaged side of the roof. The 1x3 "roll" should be against the roof so it won't collect water and debris. The rest of the tarp goes over the ridge and down the other side of the roof several feet beyond the damage. Then I roll the opposite end of the tarp around another 1x3 and screw it to the roof sheathing, roll side down. Now it's just a matter of using more 1x3s and screws to hold down the tarp's sides. They don't have to be rolled in the tarp. A "blue roof" isn't pretty, I'll admit, but it will keep the weather out until someone can repair the damage.
 
 
Best Materials Adds: We suggest adding Eternbond RoofSeal tape or Doublestick along the edges of the tarp and at any overlaps of two tarps. This prevents leaks. Use RoofSeal Plus for granulated shingle roofs. Also - where possible, wrap the bottom of the tarp around the bottom base of the roof and screw to the underside of the eaves -- water will runoff and not puddle along areas which have been screwed down. The blue tarps are really cheap, will tear easily and will degrade quickly in the direct sun. We recommend use of the Heavy Duty tarps. For smaller leaks just use the RoofSeal. A 6"-wide roll can be overlapped to create seals for larger areas of damage or missing tiles.
 
How to Tarp Very Large Areas / How to Overlap & Tie Tarps Together:
by Best Materials
 
It is simple to tarp very large areas with smaller tarps. Simply overlap the tarps and rope together using the convenient grommets. This makes easy work of hillsides, large roofs, fields, grain stockpiles, etc. On sloped surfaces, the overlapped areas behave like roof tiles and allow water to properly run off.  For complete waterproofing and on flat  surfaces, use aluminum faced roof repair tape along the seams. Watertight seams and perimeter seals can be easily created using Eternabond RoofSeal tape and Eternabond Doublestick.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Preventing Tarp Failure:
Larger tarps need to be secured with ropes woven through ALL the grommet holes, as above. The rope should run the entire LENGTH and each end of the rope then secured. The tension in the rope should be  from END-TO-END of the rope. All 4 sides of the tarp are done this way. This prevents excess tarp stress under various conditions. Roping the corners and a few center areas will result in failure. The tarp manufacturers do not warrant failure due to improper tie down, over-stress or high wind. The above practice will prevent most tears.
