Tarps run large and small. On a large scale, as you can see from our site, tarps are used in construction, on farms for covering hay, on sports fields, and on trucks. At home, larger tarps are even used to shelter RVs. But what about smaller tarps? Polyethylene tarps may be as small as six by 10 feet, but when it comes to covering a vehicle, a 10x12 tarp is the smallest you should use.

Vehicles need protection from the weather, and if a rain or snow storm is approaching, throw a 10x12 tarp over your car or motorcycle. The polyethylene is treated to be waterproof, UV resistant, mildew resistant, and rot proof, and the tarp will keep your vehicle dry until the storm is over. 10x12 Tarps, however, do not protect by themselves. Once you throw the tarp over your vehicle, secure it with bungee cords or clips.

The UV resistant and waterproof properties also make 10x12 tarps helpful in temporarily patching a roof. A hurricane, a tornado, or even a wind storm can tear off part of your roof or result in cracks to the material. Some water may seep into your house during the storm and cause damage, but you can prevent additional damage by patching up all damaged areas with 10x12 tarps. Medium-duty tarps are able to keep out water and UV rays for up to 90 days, but beyond this point, a contractor needs to assess the damage and repair the roof.

As you use tarps temporarily, however, remember that the material will not stay in place on its own. All 10x12 tarps need to be secured on all sides with boards and nails.

10x12 tarps have other uses around your home. If you have a wood pile, cover it in rain or snow with a tarp. Similarly, if you begin planting a garden in spring, keep your plants in good condition when frost hits by temporarily covering the ground with a medium-duty 10x12 poly tarp.
