    WTB Tyvek

    I would like to find someone that has some for sale. I cant justifiy 150 bucks for a full roll. You know how wives are.

    I am looking for some 9 foot wide and at least 12 feet long. I will be making a summer tarp.

    Let me know if you have some for sale. Thanks

    Our local building supply just started selling it by the foot from the roll for people who don't need full rolls. Maybe one near you does the same, worth a check.

    is there a market for this? what is it going for a ft. (in the 9' width)
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    On ebay it looks like it's going for $1.64 p/f. Based on the price of the roll I found @ Lowes a 9x150 roll goes for $151 so that's like $1 p/f.

    You didn't include the shipping costs of .65 p/f! It's more like 2.30 p/f!

    Man, I may just buy a roll and sell it here to make it cheaper for the HF folks! Plus, then I have enough Tyvek for anything I'd ever want!

    Forgot about the shipping...there are alternative brands to Tyvek as well, just search Lowes or Home Depot for "housewrap" and other brands will return on the results.

    I did find that Home Depot carries the 9x100 roll for around $125 or so.
