Multiple Uses for Commercial Tarping
Throughout our operating region, the weather is often on the top of everyone’s mind. We experience everything from hurricanes with high winds and catastrophic rain, to tornadoes and thunderstorms. Each of these events has the potential to damage your property’s roof and exterior walls majorly. When damage occurs, it is important that you act quickly to protect your property from further deterioration.
Whether the damage is from extreme weather, fire, vandalism, or other disasters, emergency tarping is often the first step in property restoration. This vital step protects your property from further damage, and it should be handled with care by professionals.
Is this something I can DIY?
For most property owners, the answer is probably not. We know when disaster strikes, the mounting costs of repair leads many property owners to look for ways to save money wherever they can by doing some of the work themselves.
However, when a damaged roof is in the equation, it is best to call in professionals. Roofs are dangerous even in normal circumstances, add in storm and water damage, have left holes or weakened areas of the roof, and a recipe for injury.
An experienced roofing or property restoration company will have the knowledge and equipment to handle this job safely.
How long can I leave a tarp in place?
Once you have installed a tarp, it might seem like you have plenty of time to address the permanent repairs down the line. In reality, a tarp is only meant to be a temporary solution. Even if it is professionally installed, it will only protect your building for a short amount of time. The longer permanent repairs are put off, the more problems you are likely to have.
Here are some of the problems you are likely to experience if you leave a roof tarp on for too long:
Tarps are great at keeping water, but they also hold water in. If water damage is under a tarp, it is highly likely to become moldy, adding cost and time to the restoration project.
Even a professionally installed tarp can shift in a strong wind event. This can leave your property vulnerable to water damage.
A tarp is not insulating – it may cause your building to retain or lose heat.
A tarp that is not installed properly can lead to pooled water where mosquitos and other insects can breed.
