DuraBag Sandbags for roof tarps

What's the Best Sandbag for Roof Tarps?

If you ever have roof damage from hail, fallen trees, fire damage, or hurricane winds -- emergency roof tarping is critical.

Properly positioned and secured plastic tarps can prevent costly, secondary water damage that could compromise the strength of the roof itself, damage insulation, stain ceilings and walls, or encourage the growth of mold. And it can happen in just a few days, as you're waiting for insurance adjusters or roof repairs.

Anchor boards and screws are one way of securing an emergency roof tarp, but screws and nails can make even more holes in your roof -- which brings the risk of creating even more leaks.

How can you tarp a roof without screws or nails?
