Recycled advertising billboard vinyls are being repurposed as tarps– - for builders and building material suppliers that want to cover most anything — lumber, open roofs, window openings, driveways before concrete, dirt piles, etc. In addition to being a “green” tarp alternative, they are also cheap and effective.

tarp2 These waterproof vinyls are super, heavy duty (20 mils thick and 13 oz/yd material) and they’re a heavier material than most any stuff you’d buy at the store. (The blue tarps at Home Depot are just 5 mils thick) And, they are about 75% less expensive than store bought tarps of similar quality!!!

These tarps can also be seamed together with a vinyl cement to create tarps of any size desire with waterproof seams.

Prices start at $60/vinyl. Common sizes are 10’x30’, 12’x42’, 14’x48’.
