With new Shur-Gard Roof Wrap from Mule-Hide Products Co., contractors can put away the tarps, ropes, and sandbags and instead install a temporary roof that can protect the roofing structure and the building’s interior for a full year.

The 12mil-thick polyethylene film is heated to shrink to the roof, securely wrapping it to create a fully functioning, leak-free roof that can stay in place for up to 12 months, resisting water and wind and preventing further damage. Designed for use on steep-slope roofing systems, it can be used to cover an entire roof or to protect only damaged areas, such as around a broken skylight.

“It lasts five to ten times longer than a traditional tarp,” said Mark Wessinger, Product Category Manager, Liquid-Applied Systems for Mule-Hide Products Co. “Contractors have plenty of time to make permanent repairs or replace the roof. And in the meantime, there are no return trips to the job site to replace a torn tarp or broken sandbag.”

 Shur-Gard Roof Wrap is exceptionally strong and resistant to tears and punctures. The white film is highly reflective and resists damage from the sun’s ultraviolet radiation for up to a year. And when its job is done, the film is 100% recyclable.
