    the stuff painters use is more water proof than regular tarps. $25 for 10 by 50 at Lowes.

    Tractor Farm Supply.

    If you need a really large tarp ( greater than 15x15 '), try a pool supply store. They make them up to 60' x 40' or larger. Not cheap tho.

    We use billboard signs. I did not know that they were waterproof material but it works well. Not expensive, fairly heavy so doesn't blow off easily, waterproof. If you put the writing side down it is white so looks OK

    If you have Costco in your area, they carry a 16'x22' pkg of 2 for $19.99 made of the heavy duty material.

    Home Depot has a 2 pk of 8.5x11.5 for $22.98 of the same quality.

    Oh man here I thought we were the only ones that used a billboard sign, LOL

    My SO uses one to cover our wood pile, but I keep trying to convince him to use the white side up Looks pretty weird when you use the writing side up.

    They are excellent tarps very HEAVY duty will last for years and years.

    I have what I'm guessing is about a 40'x60' foot tarp I will sell you. I feel I should warn you that it weighs about 45 pounds and is the size of a small bale of hay.

    I think it came from Costco although I'm not sure as I didn't buy it. I sent some techs to get me a "large" tarp. They took that instruction very literally

    Ooh. billboard signs/tarps on ebay. 20x60 for $95. Plus shipping of about $70, but still! Supposed to be 5x heavier than the tarps you can buy at HD etc.

    You could call the company's that put up the billboards I am sure they would love to get rid of their used billboards easily. To be honest I can't recall how we got our hands on ours.

    But I think the easiest way to find one would just call the # of the billboard companies and they can turn you in the right direction.

    And considering my boyfriend is a tight wad, I know he did not pay $95 for this tarp. I wouldn't be surprised if the billboard company would give it to you for free.
