  4. Dip a paintbrush into the fabric paint.

Likewise, how long does a tarp last on a roof? Once installed correctly, you can expect a tarp to last a two full years — taking into consideration the roof's slope. The size you'll need mostly depends on where the peak of the roof is in relation to the leaking area on the roof. In other words, you will have to cover the roof's ridge line as well as the leak.

How do you fix a hole in a tarp?

Use the brush inside the lid; then apply the patch. If you haven't thoroughly covered the patch from the underside, lift, fill in and press the loose edges. Let the patch dry until it's tacky, or sticky, against the tarp. Firmly press the patch on the tarp to seal.
