Polyethylene Tarps

WHAT IS THE MATERIAL MADE OF?

It is a woven polyethylene (LDPE) fabric coated with a UV-resistant layer to minimize fading. The weave allows it to flex in windy conditions and reduces fraying or tearing.  It is approximately 6 mil thick (6/1000"), slightly thicker than traditional tarps. 

WHAT SIZES DO YOU HAVE?

Most of our inventory is unmarked, so we are unsure of exact sizes; however, the most common sizes of billboards are 12’x24’, 12'x40', 10'x30', 10'x36' & 14'x48'. Since we do not know the exact sizes, they are sold by weight at $2.49/lb; the heavier the piece of material, the larger it is.  One pound of weight equals approximately 30 square feet.  They are compactly folded for easy transportation. 

IS THE MATERIAL WATERPROOF?

It is 100% waterproof and will not promote mold or mildew. 

HOW DO I FASTEN THE TARP DOWN OR HANG IT?

Some have pockets/sleeves along all four sides, but most do not. You can run pipe, cable or rope through the pockets for even distribution. They do not have grommets, but you can add them with a kit from a hardware store. You can also use Grip-Clips, staples, or other industrial clamps.

IS THERE AN ADVERTISEMENT ON ONE SIDE? 

There is a sample advertisement or print on one side, but the other side is a solid, light grey color. We recommend keeping the advertisement side down, so only the backside is showing.  The print is waterproof, and will not bleed. 

WHAT IS THE CONDITION OF THE TARPS?

These reclaimed billboard signs are BRAND NEW and were NEVER INSTALLED! We guarantee they are in perfect condition without holes or tears. We will gladly replace them if you find a hole.

HOW CAN I PAY? WHAT ABOUT VOLUME PURCHASES?

We prefer cash but also accept debit/check cards, and all major credit cards. Please call about discounts on volume purchases and to ensure inventory.  Local sales tax will be applied.

WHAT ELSE CAN THEY BE USED FOR? 

Your creativity is the only limit! Here are some suggestions: Tarp or cover for cars, boats & RVs, underlayment for roofing shingles, weed barrier, ground cover, temporary roof, hay and feed cover, moisture barrier for vegetable gardening, protect farm equipment, machinery & construction materials, drop cloth for painting and home projects, sun shade, camping awning/rain cover, rain water capture!
