Builders Tarps

Darling Downs Tarpaulins makes top quality Builders Tarps from heavy-duty, PVC fabrics.


DDT Builders Tarps are commonly used to protect projects from wet weather but they are also used as Floor Sheets.

Floor Sheets are invaluable when working on upper story extensions.  They act as a waterproof layer between the construction area and property below thus reducing the threat of water damage to assets below the building area.

Do you require a sheet that is not square?  No problem! We can do any size & any shape, simply send us an email or fax with a diagram & measurements & we will do a quotation for you.

REMEMBER!  If you are in the building industry, a DDT tarp just might be one of the most important tools you carry with you. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry, so don’t gamble on the weather & don’t risk not having your job protected in time from the rain.


We can offer tarps as flat sheets or with tie-down straps fitted.  This gives you the added advantage of being able to securely fasten the tarp when the weather becomes inclement.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which tarps are best for my particular needs?

The best tarp for your needs depends on the specific purpose you have in mind. If you need a tarp to protect your vehicle or outdoor equipment from the elements, you may want to consider a heavy-duty tarp. If you need a tarp for a construction site, you may need a fire-retardant tarp that meets safety regulations. Our extensive range includes builders tarps, camping tarps, cotton tarps, hay tarps and truck tarps to suit a variety of needs and applications.

What is the best material for tarpaulin?

The best material for tarpaulin depends on the intended use. Polyethylene and vinyl tarps are popular for their durability and resistance to UV rays and water. Canvas tarps are a good choice for heavy-duty applications, as they are breathable and resistant to tearing.

What size do I need?

The size of the tarp you need depends on the area you want to cover. Measure the length and width of the area and add a few extra feet to ensure full coverage.

Are all tarps basically the same?

No, tarps come in different materials, thicknesses and strengths. Some tarps are designed for specific uses, such as camping or construction. It’s important to choose a tarp that is suitable for your intended use to ensure optimal performance.

What is finished size?

The finished size of a tarp is the size of the tarp after it has been cut, hemmed and finished.

What type of tarps last the longest?

Heavy-duty tarps made from materials such as vinyl or canvas tend to last the longest. They’re resistant to tearing and are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions.

How long can a tarpaulin last?

The lifespan of a tarpaulin depends on the material, thickness and the conditions it’s exposed to. Heavy-duty tarps made from durable materials can last for several years, while lighter weight tarps may only last for a few months. Proper maintenance and storage can also help prolong the life of a tarp.
