The painter's tarps absorb most paint spills and protect the floor. Our painters tarps are very thick and strong and will last a paint contractor job after job. In most interior situations, canvas painter tarps offer superior protection as appose to plastic tarps. Canvas painter's tarps stay put, especially on rugs or couches. The plastic tarps will slide and do not react well to a slippery floor. The painter tarps can be laid down and do not slide around. The plastic tarps must be taped to the floor which adds to the setup time. If you are the novice painter or a professional paint contractor we are sure that you will be very with our painters tarps.
