Building A Roof Deck

Building A Roof DeckFinishing Up!

Once finished we caulked all joints and seams and did a thorough yard clean up, including running a magnet around the yard to capture nails from the demo work. For smaller projects like these we prefer to use a dumpster bag.

Using a flexible light weight bag that can instantly be transformed into a dumpster bag and perform just like a steel dumpster is changing the how I perform my remodeling services. It’s a perfect solution for small renovations or clean up jobs that are too small for a dumpster or where the location or the budget can’t accommodate a steel dumpster and its long term rental costs.

Before there were dumpster bags we would show up to a small repair project with trash barrels and then, depending on what we found, we might have to order a dumpster. Now instead of having to guess and scramble with unexpected repair and renovation debris, I just keep some dumpster bags in my trailer.

These super strong and durable dumpster bags are puncture and tear resistant. The best part of these bags is that they fold up to the size of a small tarp and store in my trailer for those situations when I need a quick solution for job site clean-up.
