All building projects are at the mercy of the weather, which in Australia can be surprisingly varied. From extreme heat to violent storms, we go through it all, and for those in the construction industry adverse weather means downtime – and often damage to work already done. For roofing and other home improvement projects, this can extend the time needed to complete, and also means that protection for work in progress is a necessity. Concrete, for example, needs time to set – and brickwork too – so what is the best way to afford protection for jobs you are working on when the weather changes for the worse?
The answer is, of course, the trusty tarpaulin, a time-served friend of every building or construction project, and one that is readily available and easy to use. Tarps provide protection from rain and wind, and can be used in many instances. They are used to waterproof areas of the project that need protection from the rain, and they do so with great success. Furthermore, tarps can be used when the sun is hot to provide shade, so you can continue to work even in the hottest weather. This dual-purpose usage makes them a worthwhile investment, but there is a cost-effective alternative to buying tarps.
For construction work you need a tarp that is durable and easy to transport, yet will also withstand the weather conditions whatever they may be. The best material for builder’s tarps is undoubtedly PVC, which provides more than adequate protection and lasts a long time.
