      Got a hole in your roof? UTARPit! This is a high quality tarp with STICKY EDGES. You can temporarily cover a damaged roof, QUICKLY, without a hammer, and without nail-damage to complicate later repair. This would normally be used immediately after a storm. It happened that I had a hole in a shed roof, not an emergency, so a good chance to try UTARPit before a real emergency. The roof was corrugated tarboard, a very tough job. The whole roof has to be replaced, but it would be nice if I can get-by until next summer. The valleys were full of dirt so I wire-brushed them sorta-clean. Then I rough-spread the UTARPit to find the center of the top. I tore-off the center of the protective paper over the sticky-edge, and worked it into the top center corrugations. It stuck real good, and easy. I worked to the left side, then peeled the side-strip a foot at a time and worked that down the side. Shift the ladder to the right and stuck the top and other side, then across the bottom. Total time, 22 minutes, including taking pictures. No tools or nails to haul-up, spill, or make more damage in the roof (not that I care here, but often a storm damages a good roof and you prefer not to damage it further with temporary cover-ups). The attached pictures show the hole, part-done, and all done. BUT-- This is an "emergency" product. It should be clearly packaged and readily available after a storm. Instead the packaging artwork is a mess of fonts and irrelevant words on pointless backgrounds. It doesn't SHOUT what it is good for. "Got a hole in your roof? UTARPit!" And at this time Home Depot only offers it Special Order, which means you must schedule your hurricane at least 2 weeks in advance. While I suppose some wise folks will plan-ahead and be prepared, it really should be IN the H-D, and stacked near the door ASAP after any major storm.

      Pros Very Adhesive, High Quality of Material, Easy to Apply, Easy to Use Cons poor instructions, fine print too fine
