But in fairness: Plastic is wonderfully inexpensive, easily worked,
and servicable enough is many conditions.
General weights per-sq.-foot for the plastic sheeting found in
WalMart, hardware stores, etcetera (these two thicknesses are the
ones most suited for tarp use.)...
3 mil. = 0.23 oz
4 mil. = 0.306 oz
So an 8x10 sheet of the 4mil stuff will weigh about 1.5 pounds.
