This may seem like a silly idea but it may help someone during the next
It seems to me that plastic stretch wrap commonly used to wrap pallets could
be used to wrap a small house, detached garage or vehicle (esp a mobile home
or trailer) to protect it from high winds and some water (certainly not a
deep water flood). It should be very effective at keeping siding in place
and protecting the eves of roofs where wind often gets a hold of the
structure and rips stuff off. It could cost less than plywood and be
applied fairly quickly. It would prevent wind from entering even broken
windows and if employed with sand bagging, may extend the flood line of a
structure up several feet or more. You could even apply it selectively to
structures to keep fragile trim in place during wind storms.
On the other hand, if applied slopply, you could end up rigging your house
with a sail.
Has anyone ever seen anyone try this, or even considered it?
Just my 2 cents for today
