Farewell Tarps, Sandbags and Ropes

Posted: 5/11/2021

Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is a 12-Month Temporary Roof

With new Shur-Gard Roof Wrap, contractors can put away the tarps, ropes, and sandbags and instead install a temporary roof that can protect the roofing structure and the building’s interior for a full year. That is five to 10 times longer than a traditional tarp!

The 12-mil-thick polyethylene film is heated to shrink to the roof, securely wrapping it to create a fully-functioning, leak-free roof that will stay in place for up to 12 months, resisting water and wind and preventing further damage. That is plenty of time to make permanent repairs or to replace the roof; and in the meantime, there are no return trips to the jobsite to replace a torn or flyaway tarp or a broken sandbag.

Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is designed for use on steep-slope roofing systems. It can be used to cover an entire roof or to protect only damaged areas, such as around whirlybirds, over a few broken tiles, or over a broken skylight.

Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is exceptionally strong and resistant to tears and punctures. The white film is highly reflective and resists damage from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation for up to a year. And when its job is done, the film is 100% recyclable.

Large roles – 32 feet wide by 90 feet long – mean the structure can be made watertight with fewer seams, speeding up installation. The membrane is extremely flexible, making it easy to handle. And if a roof inspection is required after Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is installed, the film can be cut to create an access area and then easily resealed after the inspection is complete.
