Mesquite TX Shrink Wrap Roofing

A shrink wrap roof seal has become the preferred roof tarp alternative for emergency leak protection in disaster areas after a large-scale hail storm, hurricane, tornado, derecho, or other high-wind event.

Shrink wrap can offer protection from catastrophic water damage that occurs immediately following roof wind damage or hail damage caused by a major storm.

What exactly is a shrink wrap roof?

A shrink wrap roof is just as it sounds. It consists of a large plastic membrane that shrinks tightly to the contours of your roof using heat. Seams are heat-welded to create a water-tight seal over the entire roof. It is a superior alternative to blue roof tarps.

If you need an emergency roof tarp to stop water leaks, you need to consider shrink wrapping the roof as the better alternative.

Shrink Wrap Roof vs. Blue Roof Tarp

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, a roof 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.

If you've been in a disaster site area, you've probably noticed more and more shrink wrapped buildings.

Shrink wrapping is not just for covering your roof.

In addition to your roof, sometimes other parts of the structure get ripped apart by strong winds.

In the immediate aftermath of a disaster, when contractors and adjusters are working at full capacity, a temporary solution is needed.

For instance, after a hurricane you may want to wrap your building in shrink wrap until permanent hurricane damage repairs can take place.

In that case, you would have a shrink wrapped temporary roof along with sealed windows and doors.
