Sure, as long as it's made of breathable material and there is no wind causing the tarp to rub through the paint.

Same here. It does help protect it.

Living in Florida, it was a no brainer for me. Money well spent to save my roof. Even if I don't get the (guaranteed) 5-years out of it.

What brand gave you 5 years Dave? Pro-rated or replacement?

Brand is Gold Line. I got the mac-daddy $500 model. I'm pretty sure it is pro-rated from purchase date. From the research I did, the roof and its seal are worth protecting. If I get 3 years out of it, I will consider it money well spent.

The added benefit (after putting covers on the roof vents) was that I can leave the vents open and the windows cracked to keep it from getting too hot inside.
