Going Green To Make Tarps With Used Billboards!

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.

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.
