I was thinking about tarps the other day and thought I’d toss up a quick blurb about them. Tarps are awesome, useful, and indispensable items. Every house should have a couple lying around. There are lots of different types and sizes of tarps (tarpaulin) and you can decided what you want to purchase to keep around. I’d only suggest that it’s best to purchase the thickest, darkest, and most heavy duty tarps that you can find or afford. I like silver tarps that have a thickness greater than 10 mil.
