A freak weather event? A flying roof slate? An animal attack? An act of God? Whatever the reason for the damage to your polytunnel cover, the good news is that repair is often possible. Polytunnel repair tape can be used to fix small tears and rips in your polythene cover. It is clear and so will not diminish sunlight and should outlive the rest of the cover. Other adhesive tapes can be used to cover the metal frame and protect the plastic cover from hotspots - this is one of the polytunnel accessories that no one should go without - it can prolong the life of your polytunnel cover by at least a year. Anti hotspot repair tape can cover degrading hot spot tape and keep protection in place.
