PALMDALE, CA, November 24, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It started in January of 2010. Tarps Plus was sending truck loads of tarps to Haiti for the earthquake stricken area. Many other natural disasters followed leaving a need for tarps to cover people with shelter. The leading U.S. tarp supplier lead the way with massive tarps shipments to the weather stricken areas.
Most of us live in an area that experiences at least a moderate storm from time to time. Few have actually been able to escape a severe storm this year. There were some pretty serious incidents like the flooding over in Pakistan earlier in the year, and now the same type of problem in the Philippines where thousands are stranded and homeless. Many have found themselves affected by a tropical storm or hurricane season. For these reasons, among others, the value of vinyl tarps and poly tarps have gone up considerably. Many individuals have learned a deeper appreciation and respect for an item that is simple, yet highly effective.
These tarps are waterproof, one of the reasons that they have become so vastly useful. They offer great protection from water, but also from wind and any other elements.
In the aftermath of storm, many time there is a lot of damage. And a tarp can provide a way to repair something temporarily or at least patch it up, protecting it from further damage, until proper reconstruction can be done.
The tarps are also affordable and lightweight. When a terrible earthquake hit Haiti, millions were homeless. There were not enough relief shelters to house everyone, leaving many without shelter and out on the streets. However, the need was quickly recognized, allowing others to show their compassion and give. Tents and tarps were flown to the country in large number. And in these temporary structures, people are still dwelling while they are working to rebuild and get their lives back.
The G.M. for Tarps plus stated that, "Our supply of tarps has been pretty much been at capacity for several years now due to the fact people depend on us to have all types of tarps at all times."
It appears that the tarp company has worked hard to increase supply to meet the tarp demands, which are predicted to continue into 2011 with more severe and extreme weather.
Tarps Plus has been selling tarps to the general public since 1956. They specialize in poly tarps and canvas tarps.
