Why Should I Stock Up On Green Leaf and Drainage Tarps Now?

Posted by CanopiesAnd Tarps on Oct 16th 2014

TheOld Farmers Almanac, by and large, is predicting that most of us will have a very cold winter. And in some areas, like Northern California, there is a good deal of rainfall expected. Of course all of that precipitation and freezing temps can cause intermittent flooding and ice related problems. So we are strongly encouraging everyone to at least think about stocking up on drainage and green leaftarpsnow. Heres why:

Most insurance, home improvement and weather experts agree that its best to prune sickly trees and remove loose debris prior to the first signs of sleet, hail or snow. Otherwise, they could contribute to roof leaks. Well, ourgreen leaf tarpscould be utilized during the clean up process. And later on, they could be used to transport kindling wood and pine cones, which make excellent fire starters. The tarps come in two finishes sizes, each with its own drawstrings.

Thedrainage tarps, on the other hand, are super to have around should your best cleanup efforts prove not to be enough. Theyll help capture any moisture coming from the buildings roof or ceilings and divert it to an out of the way area. Examples of out of the way areas include sump pump holes, drainage ditches, slop sinks and leech fields.

Unlike the leaf tarps, drainage tarps also come in more sizes and colors. There are options when it comes to materials as well. Some of the drainage tarps are fire retardant and others are not. The fire retardant versions would undoubtedly work best in the attic and basement, which often contain parts of a persons home heating system (e.g. chimney and furnace). The non-fire retardant ones would be great for rooms or outbuildings where there is no direct contact to a heating source (e.g. garage or pool house).
