Shrink Wrap Roof – Emergency Roofing (Disaster Response Services)
For years, the traditional material of choice to temporarily stop roof leaks has been the blue roof tarps you see dotting the rooftops of homes and buildings after a natural disaster.
And while roof tarps provide protection from water leaks, they do have some weaknesses. When you’re looking for a longer-term temporary solution, shrink wrap may be the best choice.
Blue roof tarps are generally attached using furring strips and nails to hold the tarps down. This creates more holes in your roof. Seams can be a mess, and tarps degrade quickly under the UV rays of the sun.
By comparison, heat shrink material is waterproof, resistant to UV rays, and can shrink to a drum-tight fit – offering better protection against pooling and subsequent strong winds.
