Blue tarps may be the most common type of tarp seen around. A regular duty tarp, a blue tarp has an 08 by 10 mesh count and a thickness of 6mil. Blue tarps are often best for temporary protection, such as being used as a roof tarp or a camping cover. Like most tarps, these basic blue tarps are UV-treated, waterproof, rot-proof, and mildew resistant which makes them an ideal solution for temporary roof repairs.
Blue tarps are often given out before a hurricane in case of water damage. When a blue tarp is used as a roof tarp, the plastic tarp can protect for up to 90 days and can be held in place by wood and nails. If you experience roof damage during a hurricane, a roof tarp will protect the inside of your house from accumulating moisture that will lead to mildew, mold, and rotting. Until a contractor is able to assess the damage from a hurricane, a blue tarp is an economical solution for protecting your home. When nailing a blue tarp to your roof, make sure not to stand on the roof tarp directly.
Other uses for blue basic tarps include picnics, car covers, storage, camping, and much more. In the case of camping, two (or even one) blue plastic tarps can become a tarp shelter in case of rain. While rope is needed to set up the tarp by tying it to a tree or tying it down with stakes, one angled blue tarp can protect your tent and immediate surrounding ground area in case you encounter a rain storm. An additional tarp can be placed underneath the tent to prevent the bottom from absorbing water, which also serves as an additional buffer against dirt, insects, and rocks. This second tarp however, should only be as big as the tent's floor, since water can possibly enter between the tarp and the tent via the excess piece of tarp.
