What colour tarps last longest in the sun?

Though the colour of your tarpaulin will not affect how well it works, you may find that you notice colour fading more quickly with darker shades. Choosing a tarpaulin that can withstand prolonged sun exposure will help it to protect your garden furniture, tools and any other items more effectively. The material your tarpaulin is made from will affect its response to strong sunlight. Look for models made from a PE or PVC material, as these will have been specifically designed to withstand sun exposure.

How thick does a tarp have to be to be waterproof?

The waterproofing of a tarpaulin is not always determined by its thickness, but by the material that it is made from. If you need your tarpaulin to be waterproof, always check the product description and opt for a heavyweight model where possible. Polyethylene (PE) tarps that are at least 105gsm will be waterproof in most conditions, as well as offering resistance to mildew.
