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.
A variety of insurance carriers cover the cost of installing a temporary roof with Shur-Gard Roof Wrap.

Yes. Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is most often installed to cover only those areas of a roof that have been damaged, including around whirlybirds, broken tiles, and broken skylights.
Yes. Shur-Gard Roof Wrap can used to create a complete, fully functioning, temporary roof.
Installing and removing Shur-Gard Roof Wrap causes minimal external damage and prevents much more significant internal damage by providing lasting, secure weatherproofing.
When installing Shur-Gard Roof Wrap on steep-slope roofs, all edges are mechanically fixed to roof tiles or to the eaves of the structure. The risk of damage is low, and the cost of replacing fascia boards or some roof tiles is much less than the cost of damage that can result from flapping, leaking, flyaway tarps.
In addition, the sandbags and ropes used to hold tarps in place can cause significant property damage. Ropes are often tied to gutter brackets, downspouts, gas or water lines, or fences – whatever anchor point is readily available. These attachment points are easily damaged under the load of wind or pooling water on the tarp. Sandbags also break down within six weeks of exposure to the elements. The sand then escapes, filling gutters and valleys to create barriers that force water back into the roof cavity, causing more internal damage.
Yes, but it often will not be needed. As a best practice, installers should complete a roof report before installing the film. This includes photographing the roof and the property before work starts to document their condition and photographing the roof again after debris has been removed and the roof has been cleaned.
If further inspection is required, the contractor can cut an access area in the film and then easily reseal the area after the inspection.
Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is covered by a limited, materials-only warranty for one year from the date of product delivery. Any installation warranty offered is done so by the individual contractor completing the installation.
Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is completely recyclable; it is not biodegradable. It also can be removed and repurposed, unlike damaged tarps, which typically go to a landfill.
