St. Joseph, Michigan, USA, 2020-Jun-03 — /EPR CONSTRUCTION NEWS/ — Hurricane season for 2020 NOAA forecast estimates six (6) major hurricanes, verses a historical average of three (3) major hurricanes in a given season. This forecast has prompted aggressive stockpiling of hurricane tarps, debris tarps, salvage tarps and large quantities of plastic sheeting materials.
As a result of these conditions, Tarps Now® has noted a significant uptick in purchasing by consumers, municipalities, non-profit organizations and businesses who are preparing by stockpiling hurricane tarps, roofing tarps, mesh tarps, debris lifting tarps and tarp fabrics in preparation for disaster recovery. Tarps are often used to immediately cover damaged roofing areas, broken windows and doors, as well as used to move debris, provide for water capture, sunscreen and shade, debris lifting, protective coverings and many other uses that protect homes, businesses, livestock and pets following hurricanes and tropical storms.
Noting the dramatic changes in weather closely linked to climate change, Tarps Now® has focused on providing protective tarps and coverings critical to hurricanes and tropical storms common to the Caribbean and the Eastern Seaboard. In addition, Tarps Now® also custom fabricates tarps prefabricated for mitigating damage to homes and other outdoor structures. The company also encourages the use of protective mesh tarp coverings that come in a wide range of different screen factors, weights, fabric grades and colors that are specifically engineered to deliver varying levels of UV protection and wind resistance, depending on the selected material and design, to better support evaporation.
