Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between a triple-hemmed tarp and a single-hemmed one?

The major difference is strength and longevity. The single-hemmed tarps on the market may cover your load and work well for you, but repeated use will wear on the hems causing them to fray and rip. Our triple-hemmed tarps are guaranteed to last. So, you can rest assured that you won't have to reinvest in another tarp two years down the road.

What are the advantages of grommets over d-rings?

D-rings are only as strong as the webbing they are attached to as well as the strength of the tarp’s hem. Once the thread starts to give on your hem, there goes your d-ring! At Toledo Tarp, we use individually reinforced grommets and set them into triple hemmed tarps. You’re assured of added strength thanks to the multiple layers and sew patterns. However, if you like d-rings, we will do d-rings! We already offer d-rings on our steel and lumber tarps.

What weight of vinyl should I use for a roll tarp?

We have found that a good 22 oz vinyl is the best choice for roll tarps. It will wear better and longer and provide the added strength and weight needed for that type of tarp.

What colors do your fabrics come in?

We use only first grade vinyls, available in 12 different colors. Our biggest sellers are black, blue, green and gray. But white, yellow, orange, red, brown, tan, light blue and burgundy are also available. You can also specify two colors for a unique color combination. Our mesh selection is black only, while canvas for winter boat covers is white.

How long will my tarp last?

The normal life expectancy for our vinyl tarps with heavy use is 2-3 years. However, with the proper care and attention to tie downs and repairs, this period can be extended by another 2 years. We have had tarps out there for 5-6 years before they needed replacement.

What makes your tarp better than the next guy’s?

We do not cut corners when fabricating our tarps. We use only what we think are the best vinyls on the market, rot-resistant thread, and heat-sealed seams, which are guaranteed for the life of the tarp. All hems are triple-stitched, with individually reinforced grommets for more strength and longer life. And we pride ourselves on the fit of our tarps, no matter what configuration your trailer is!
