Recycled advertising billboard vinyls are being repurposed as tarp material – www.recycledbillboardtarps.com - for farmers and ranchers who want to cover grass, alfalfa, make windscreens, or use as floor covering stuff in the barn. 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.
Prices start at $60/vinyl. Common sizes are 10’x30’, 12’x42’, 14’x48’
