Installation of UTARPit ™ Self-Adhesive Roof Tarp

Before carefully reading the below steps, please note the following:

In order for the tarp to work effectively it must be properly installed. Make sure the surface area where you wish to apply it does not have any debris. The tarp works best if the area is semi-dry. If the area is wet, go over the designated area with a heat gun or torch for a minute or two in order for the adhesive to adhere. If there is snow, around 32 degrees, make sure you clean out the snow as much as possible and torch the perimeter where the adhesive is going to be placed. If the roof is frozen, defrost the area with a torch and follow the same steps.

A. Make sure that the roof surface where you plan to install your tarp is clear of debris or any loose roof tiles/shingles.

B. Make sure there are no sharp or protruding objects where you are planning to place the tarp.

C. Always begin installation of tarp just below where the roof damage commences or starts and work your way up to the roof ridge.

D. Always begin installation at a bottom corner and slowly peel back release paper as you press the tarp against the surface. Apply one side of the tarp next, followed by the opposite side and lastly the top.

E. Please be aware that once you expose the adhesive and press down the tarp onto your surface, you will not be able to reposition it, therefore use extreme caution when installing this product.

F. If installing this product on any other type of surface other than shingle or flat roof it is very important that the release paper is removed slowly as you are contouring your tarp to your roof surface.

G. To avoid water accumulation if you have a big hole in the roof, a piece of plywood should be installed over the opening prior to applying your tarp.

H. Product is designed to be removed by a roofing professional by disposing the damaged area it is adhered to or using a hot solvent. If customer must remove the tarp without a professional, begin by peeling the tarp as much as you can. Goo-Gone or any other solvent  suitable for your roof type may facilitate the removal process and residue.

 

What kind of roof does the UTARPit™ adhere to?
The UTARPit™ self-adhesive tarp adheres to many roof tops. It has been tested on barrel tile, asphalt shingle, slate, concrete, and metal surfaces.

What is the best way to install the UTARPit?
Make sure the surface area where you wish to apply it does not have any debris. The tarp works best if the area is semi-dry. If the area is wet, go over the designated area with a heat gun or torch for a minute or two in order for the adhesive to adhere.

If there is snow, around 32 degrees, make sure you clean out the snow as much as possible and torch the perimeter where the adhesive is going to be placed. If the roof is frozen, defrost the area with a torch and follow the same steps.

A tip from roofers: If your roof’s damage is over 2 feet, cover the hole with a solid material like plywood prior to installing the UTARPit™. This can mitigate water accumulation if weather conditions affect your area while awaiting your roofing specialist.

How do I know which size is best to cover my roof damage?
We recommend measuring your damage prior to purchasing UTARPit™. You should always have about 2-3 feet all around the damage to make sure your area is completely secured.

Where should I store my UTARPit?
We recommend you store your UTARPit™ in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing the self-adhesive tarp in a hot garage because those high temperatures can affect the quality of the adhesive when you’re ready to use it.

Can I use my UTARPit more than once?
No. The adhesive on your UTARPit™ is designed to be a temporary solution of one-time use. However, our customers have used the tarp after removing it from their roof for other purposes but the adhesive won’t adhere properly after its first use. Remember, the tarp still has grommets around all edges which could assist in projects after being the temporary solution for your property.

How long can my UTARPit stay on my roof?
Our UTARPit™ can withstand hurricane winds of 110 mph and 8.8 inches per hour of wind driven rain without releasing. UTARPit™ can stay protecting and mitigating your roof’s damage for up to 6 months.

Keep in mind this is a temporary solution for your property.

How do I remove the UTARPit?
The UTARPit™ is designed to be removed by a roofing professional by disposing the damaged area it is adhered to or using a hot solvent. If you must remove the tarp without a professional, begin by peeling the tarp on all sides as much as you can. Goo-Gone or any other solvent suitable for your roof type may facilitate the removal process and residue.
