We consider these tarps to be water-resistant and weatherproof: Duramost™ tarps are treated with a special coating that repels water, mildew, and other damaging elements. This ensures your valuables stay protected from rain, snow, sun, and harsh weather conditions.

Industrial and military grade: Duramost™ tarps meet the rigorous standards of industrial and military use. This signifies their exceptional strength, reliability, and ability to withstand even the most extreme environments.

Breathable: The unique weave of Duramost™ polyester canvas allows air to circulate, preventing moisture buildup and condensation underneath the tarp. This is crucial for protecting your belongings from mold and mildew, especially during long-term storage or use in humid environments.

Water Resistant and Tear Resistant: Duramost™ tarps are treated with a water-repellent coating that effectively shields your valuables from rain, snow, and other elements. This advanced treatment ensures superior water resistance while maintaining the tarp's breathability. Additionally, the high-density polyester weave provides exceptional tear resistance, making Duramost™ tarps ideal for demanding applications where durability is paramount.

Rust Resistant Hardware: For lasting performance and peace of mind, Duramost™ tarps feature rust-resistant hardware. This includes not only the robust polyester canvas but also the heavy-duty brass grommets, ensuring your tarp withstands the harshest weather conditions without succumbing to corrosion.

Grommets: Duramost™ tarps come equipped with brass grommets on all corners and spaced approximately 2 feet apart along the circumference. These grommets provide secure anchor points for ropes, bungee cords, or other tie-down methods, allowing you to easily and firmly secure the tarp to any structure. Additionally, the grommets are custom-reinforced to prevent tearing and ensure long-lasting functionality.

Heavy-Duty Construction: Duramost™ tarps are crafted with a premium 15oz/sq. yard polyester canvas, making them significantly heavier and more durable than standard tarps. This increased density translates to superior strength and tear resistance, allowing you to rely on your Duramost™ tarp for even the most demanding tasks.

Grommet Spacing: Grommets are metal rings strategically placed around the tarp's edges for secure tie-down. Closer grommet spacing (approximately every 2 feet) offers more flexibility and reinforcement, especially for larger tarps or windy conditions.

Reinforced Edges: Strengthened edges with webbing or double-stitching provide additional tear resistance and increase the tarp's lifespan. This is crucial for heavy-duty applications or areas prone to abrasion.

Easy to Handle: Despite their exceptional strength, Duramost™ tarps are surprisingly lightweight. This makes them easy to handle, transport, and install, saving you time and effort.

Customizable: Duramost™ tarps can be customized to fit your specific needs. Choose from a variety of sizes, colors, and configurations to create the perfect tarp for your project.

    DURAMOST™ tarps come in a wide variety of sizes, catering to diverse applications. Here's some suggestions or recommendations:

    • Camping and Shelters: For basic shelters, backpacking, and covering equipment, consider tarps ranging from 8' x 10' to 12' x 16'. Larger sizes (16' x 20' and above) are better suited for group shelters, carports, or covering large areas.
    • Gardening and Agriculture: For protecting plants from frost or creating shade, smaller tarps (6' x 8' or 8' x 10') are sufficient. Larger sizes are needed for covering greenhouses, hay bales, or extensive gardens.
    • Construction and DIY Projects: Choose larger tarps (12' x 16' or 16' x 20') to effectively cover building materials, debris, or scaffolding.
    • Transport and Storage: Depending on your cargo size, select the tarp that adequately covers it. For furniture or small vehicles, a 10' x 12' tarp might suffice, while larger items may require tarps exceeding 16' x 20'.

    Duramost™ Tarps Care and Maintenance

    To ensure your tarp provides years of reliable service, please follow these care and maintenance guidelines:


    • Clean and dry your tarp completely before storing. This prevents mildew and mold growth.
    • Store your tarp loosely rolled or folded. Avoid tight creases or folds, as these can weaken the fabric over time.
    • Choose a cool, dry storage location away from direct sunlight and harsh chemicals. Garages, basements, or sheds are ideal locations.
    • If storing outdoors, use a tarp storage bag to provide additional protection from the elements.


    • Most dirt and debris can be removed by shaking or brushing the tarp.
    • For heavier stains, use a mild soap and water solution. Apply with a sponge or soft brush, then rinse thoroughly with clean water.
    • Allow the tarp to air dry completely before storing.
    • Never use harsh chemicals or solvents to clean your tarp, as these can damage the fabric.


    • Inspect your tarp regularly for any signs of wear and tear. This includes checking for rips, tears, and weakened seams.
    • Minor tears can be repaired using a tarp repair kit. Follow the instructions included with the kit carefully.

    Maximizing Lifespan and Performance

    • Avoid dragging or scraping your tarp across rough surfaces. This can wear down the fabric and lead to tears.
    • Do not use your tarp for purposes exceeding its weight capacity. Overloading can strain the fabric and cause damage.
    • Do not expose your tarp to extreme heat or open flames. This can weaken the fabric and make it susceptible to damage.


    • Stains: Most stains can be removed with a mild soap and water solution. For stubborn stains, try using a commercial stain remover specifically designed for outdoor fabrics.
    • Minor tears: Small tears can be repaired using a tarp repair kit. Be sure to follow the instructions included with the kit carefully.
