Installing Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is faster than installing traditional tarpaulins. Contractors do not typically carry tarps, sandbags and rope on their trucks, so a tarp installation job usually begins with a trip to a roofing materials distributor, hardware store, or big box retailer to purchase supplies. And often the first tarp purchased is the wrong size, resulting in a return trip to the supplier.
In that time, a contractor with a roll of Shur-Gard Roof Wrap and the necessary tools and materials on the truck has already cut the film to fit the job and begun attaching it.
And Shur-Gard Roof Wrap will stay put and protect the structure for a full year, giving the contractor plenty of time to make a permanent repair or install a new roof. Tarps, on the other hand, frequently rip, tear or become detached, resulting in yet another visit to the job site.
