UV Resistant Plastic Sheeting?


I'm looking for about 20 feet square of plastic sheeting to put over the flat roof part of my house that leaks until I can have it properly repaired.

Last year I used clear think plastic sheeting, but the UV destroyed it this summer.

Can someone suggest a solution that is UV resistant? I did a web search and couldn't find much. The best I could find was something called alphablue tarp, but couldn't find pricing or sales locations.

I had thought that black sheeting would be UV resistant, but none of the packaging at Home Depot lists it as such.

You want polyethylene that is UV resistant, like what they use on greenhouses. It isn't UV proof, but it will last longer than the regular stuff. I'd suggest you either contact a greenhouse / landscaping supply store or do a google search for +polyethylene +"UV resistant".
