Sure, it’s just a large heavy sheet. You will be surprised at just how versatile heavy duty tarps are however. This is one of the best items that you pick up from a hardware company, and you should always have a couple by your side ready to use whenever you want. This article is about a small smattering of things that you are able to do with your heavy duty tarps.
One of the biggest uses for tarpaulin is by covering up vehicles and boats in order to protect them. You can also use them to cover up swimming pools and carports. This is able to keep the intense sun and rain off things that don’t want to be affected by it. It also great for keeping the hot sun off paint jobs, which can blister whilst they are new and are exposed to heat. In short, anybody that owns a vehicle, or something that needs covering could benefit from heavy duty tarps.
In older style tents you will need heavy duty tarps in order to line the floor and stop it getting ‘wet’ inside. You may even want to place it under newer tents, this will stop the soggy ground affecting the tent, which can damage it in the long run. Have a caravan? You will also be able to use it in the awnings that you place inside one as well.
Heavy Duty Tarps as Shelter and Cover
Many people have used their tarps to create temporary shelter whenever they need it. Although it won’t be 100% waterproof since you are only covering a roof, although it will still keep a substantial amount of water and sunlight off whatever you need protecting. You can use your temporary shelter for almost anything that you want. Whilst it isn’t the most attractive thing in the world, it is ideal for those large gatherings and parties. It provides an ideal location to escape to if the weather takes a little turn for the worse, it will also ensure that those BBQ’s aren’t rained off!
Tarps are also great for covering areas in order to keep them warm, particularly during the winter. They are a firm favourite of gardeners who use them to keep ‘plants’ warm and away from the freezing cold temperatures. The heavy duty tarps will allow the plants to thrive, whilst everything else that remains exposed will remain become sullen and end up dying.
You may even use a tarp to cover ‘cold’ areas of your house (from the outside of course). This is a great temporary solution before you can find other materials to seal the exposed area up.
As you can see, heavy duty tarps are incredibly useful. I bet you can think of a multitude of uses for one that I haven’t covered here. Now all you need to do is grab a couple of bungee cords or perhaps some zip ties, a few heavy duty tarps and get cracking! You should be able to pick up your brand new tarp online or in a hardware store.
