If you are looking for roof tarp installation, then chances are your roof is currently having a few issues. While this is a good way for temporary fixes it is not something we suggest for the long term. However, this is a great solution to prevent further damage while you get everything taken care of. Below we will go over in what situations should you use a Roof Tarp Installation and the basics steps during the process.


  • Assess the damage

When doing all roof tarp installations, we always assess the damage. During this process we also clean the debris from the roof to make sure that everything goes smoothly and to see the full extent of the damage.


  • Measure the Area

Making sure to measure the area is extremely important because it ensures that all the damage is covered, and that we get the right size tarp. We always have 5 feet of overhang from the roofs peak. If you have an extra tarp you can hang it safely off the edge.


  • Prep & Position tarp


Making sure that the tarp covers all the damage is extremely important. If you fail to cover damage to your roof, then it can cause further damage to your home and roof. You can use 2 x 4 wooden planks to secure the tarp temporarily.


  • Secure the Tarp

As we said above, 2 x 4s can be used to temporarily secure the tarp. However, for long term you will want to use a screw gun and the 2 x 4s. All edges must be covered otherwise the tarp won’t prevent further damage to your home.
