Roof Tarping

Roof Tarp Service

Tarp your roof to avoid further damage.

After severe weather events such as storms, hurricanes, or heavy rainfall, roofs may sustain damage like missing shingles, punctures, or leaks. Installing a tarp provides immediate protection until permanent repairs can be made.

Overall, roof tarps serve as a temporary solution to protect roofs and interiors from damage while more permanent repairs or replacements are planned and executed. It’s important to note that while tarps can provide immediate relief, they are not a long-term solution, and professional repairs should be conducted as soon as possible to ensure the structural integrity of the roof.

Roof Tarps -Preventing Water Damage:

A damaged roof can allow water to infiltrate the interior of a building, causing extensive water damage to ceilings, walls, insulation, and belongings. Tarps act as a barrier to prevent water from entering until proper repairs can be completed.

In some cases, insurance companies may require homeowners to install tarps on damaged roofs as part of the mitigation process to prevent further damage and minimize insurance claims.

Water intrusion through a damaged roof can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which can pose health risks and require costly remediation. Tarps help to prevent moisture buildup and inhibit the growth of mold and mildew.

Roof Tarping -How long will my tarped roof last?

The lifespan of a roof tarp can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of the tarp material, weather conditions, and how well it is installed and maintained. In general, roof tarps are intended to be temporary solutions and are not designed for long-term use. Here are some factors that can affect the lifespan of a roof tarp:

Quality of Material: Higher quality tarps made from durable materials such as heavy-duty polyethylene or reinforced plastic are likely to last longer than cheaper, thinner tarps. UV-resistant materials also help prolong the lifespan of the tarp when exposed to sunlight.

Weather Conditions: Exposure to harsh weather elements such as sunlight, wind, rain, snow, and temperature fluctuations can degrade the material of the tarp over time. Extended exposure to UV rays, in particular, can cause deterioration and weakening of the fabric.
Installation: Proper installation is crucial for the effectiveness and longevity of a roof tarp. A securely fastened tarp with adequate overlap and proper anchoring can withstand wind and weather better than one that is improperly installed.

Maintenance: Regular inspection and maintenance of the tarp can help identify signs of wear and tear early on. Prompt repairs, such as patching holes or reinforcing weak areas, can extend the lifespan of the tarp.

Usage: The intended use of the tarp also affects its lifespan. A tarp that is frequently moved or adjusted may wear out more quickly than one that remains in place for an extended period.

While some roof tarps may last several months under optimal conditions, it’s essential to understand that they are temporary solutions. They are intended to provide short-term protection until more permanent repairs or roof replacement can be completed. If a roof tarp is being used for an extended period, it’s advisable to monitor its condition regularly and replace it as needed to maintain adequate protection for the underlying structure.
