Use it while constructing, painting, & trucking

Canvas tarps are the first pick for construction workers, painters, and truckers. 

While reconstructing your house, you can use a canvas tarp to cover up construction material and prevent it from getting damaged. Some tarps come with inbuilt grommets which keep the tarp in place, especially when it’s being used on a construction site. 

Professional painters use canvas tarps to protect floors from paint stains. Canvas tarps are also easier to manage and environmentally friendly, making them an increasingly popular option.

Outdoor camping during rain and snow

Going outside? Pick a heavier canvas tarp as a camping tarp for better protection. We recommend a tarp that weighs 18 oz. for better water resistance in the case of light rain showers. Keep in mind, the heavier you go, the more protection and water resistance the tarp will offer.

If you are camping in the snow, camping tarps can be spread out on the ground for extra warmth and protection in your camp set up. White Duck Outdoors has a range of options and we can help you pick out the best canvas tarps for snow camping.

Cover your wood

Wood shavers and carpenters can also find good use with canvas tarpaulins. Wood absorbs moisture while kept outside and it can get wet in the rain.This can lead to mold and mildew if you don’t take precautionary measures. Canvas tarps offer protection without locking in moisture and dampness under the covers – saving your wood from damage.

If you’re in a place where you cut trees down often for woodworking or for firewood, for example on a homestead or a farm, this is a great way to keep piles of wood protected from damage from the elements.

Protect the plants

You can also protect your plants and shrubs from damage. If you’re worried that heavy snowfall will damage the shrubs you grew out last summer, then cover them up with a canvas tarp. The canvas will allow the plants to breathe and also protect them.

Covering your pool

A canvas duck tarp can be used to cover the inground of your pool when it’s not in use. This pool tarp helps prevent any dirt or debris from getting in and keeps your pool well-maintained for when you do want to fill it with water in the right seasons.
