My wife and I recently completed a one year reconstruction of our home. We used the Husky 42 gallon Contractor Bags almost exclusively for disposal of small demolition and construction debris. They hold up to almost anything except perhaps nails stuck in a board. Even then they still hold up, but will leak. They have usable ears at the top of the bag for tying off and are individually packaged for easy deployment. We still use the bags post construction for our normal household garbage. The quality has been holding up so far and as long as it does we give these bags an unqualified 5 stars.
Oh, they are a bit expensive, but so are BMW's as compared to Aveo's.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, High Quality, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
If you think these are not necessary and you are taking on a home project, are tearing anything down, or throwing large scraps away... think again. These were a complete life saver when I was tearing down the hard cement stucco decor the previous owners of my home thought were an improvement and attached over the hard wood trim. I was naive and thought regular black trash bags would be enough, but I was so wrong. Nails, sharp edges, and wood can poke out which is dangerous and they can't carry enough weight. These contractor bags are much safer, thicker, and can carry heavier loads. Don't endanger yourself or the kind people who may try to help you with home improvement projects. Spend the money and don't get cut!
First received this bag to assist us in cleaning out our flood-damaged home. Strong, big enough to handle large, wet materials with ease. Slightly over-sized for standard trash can but fits and does great job. I haven't ripped one yet.
Very strong and large construction bags. I've filled 3 with wall framing from some walls I took out of my place. I cut all pieces about 6 inches in length and toss them in the bags, nails still attached and all. I put over 80 pounds of cut up lumber in each and never even a small tear, and not even one nail punctured through. These things are tough!
