About Us

Lookout Mountain Tarp is a fifth-generation family owned and locally operated business. We originated in Chattanooga Tennessee in the early 1920’s, were incorporated in 1927, and to the best of our knowledge are the oldest manufacturer of tarpaulins in the United States of America. Our current manufacturing facility is located in North Central Alabama just off Interstate 65 in the uniquely spectacular town of Cullman. All the tarps we sell are built right here by real Americans who take great pride in knowing their workmanship is responsible for creating the best quality tarps available anywhere.

Well over half our tarps go to other manufacturers who build a product that requires a tarp. If you have ever driven past a road crew laying asphalt, watched a farmer harvest a crop, or shopped the garden center at your local big box store you have already seen our work. Some of our custom built products include box shaped tarps, clear tarps, industrial curtains, privacy screens, and shade cloths. These tarps are constructed from a variety of mesh or solid fabrics.

Truck tarps for flatbed and open top trailers is another area where we specialize. We offer an extensive selection of solutions for covering loads of lumber, steel, coils, grain, wood chips, excavation equipment, and roll off containers. We also stock a complete line of cargo control hardware that is frequently used in conjunction with these tarps. In addition to building tarps we also repair them. Our repair room includes a lighted table that will highlight any areas that need attention.

For nearly a century, customers have been ordering custom size tarps to cover their swimming pool. We now offer a complete safety pool cover system that is maintenance free, blocks out all UV rays, and attaches using our unique Ratchet-Lock hardware. It features many innovations not available from other brands designed to increase strength, durability, and ease of operation.

Over the last decade sports tarps have grown into a sizable portion of our business. We offer tarps for baseball and softball infield protection, football sideline covers, gymnasium floor protection, fence windscreens, as well as tarps used for track and field.

At Lookout Mountain Tarp the vast majority of what we offer is built to order. It is our goal to fulfill custom orders within five business. Shipping is always free plus to keep things fair we pay the sales tax on orders picked up here. So, either way the price shown on this site is your total cost. We stand behind every tarp sold with our lifetime workmanship warranty. Contact us today to learn how we can help your company succeed.
