Welcome to the forums!

I normally just buy cheap tarps although a lot depends on what your intended use is.

Generally I go for the inexpensive woven plastic tarps. Blue ones tend to be the cheapest and have the shortest life while the silver or brown ones last longer. If you really want a tarp that will last start looking at industrial and trucking sources but expect them to cost much more but they will be much thicker and heavier like a rubberized canvas.
