With summer upon us and the weather getting nicer, that means Construction – Renovation – and Hurricane Season. Whether you are building, renovating, or protecting property, something you will always need is tarps.

In this article, we’re going to talk about the WHO, WHAT, WHERE, WHEN, and WHY of tarps.

Who Uses Tarps?

If you live in a highrise apartment building, you may not have any reason to own a tarp, but if you have a house, a tarp can come in handy for things you may need to cover outside like

  • Patio furniture
  • Your BBQ grill
  • Bicycles, motorcycles, and boats

They can also be used for making a makeshift tent for camping.

What are the Uses of Tarps that are Purchased in Bulk By Big Users

Buyers of larger quantities of tarps include:

  • Roofing contractors who use them to cover roofs during roof renovations
  • Tarping contactors (who are often roofing contractors too) jump into action to cover roofs after heavy storms
  • Cities, Counties, and benevolent groups buy tarps in bulk to donate to the homeless for temporary shelter
  • Retailers like hardware stores, and sporting goods stores, sell tarps and therefore need to buy in bulk to resell them

Where Are Some Places Tarps Used?

Tarps are used:

  • In the trucking business for keeping bulk material from spraying out of the top of open-top trucks
  • At campgrounds where people need to be prepared for all kinds of shelter or ground-covering needs
  • In the yard for covering bulk materials which may need to be kept dry or safe from blowing away in the wind

Blue Tarps Are 6mil Thick – Silver Tarps Are 10mil Thick

6mil Blue Tarps are considered heavy duty (as opposed to their much lighter, inferior counterpart, 3mil blue tarps).

Blue Tarps Are Used WHEN:

  • You need to protect your belongings from the elements
  • You want a tarp that will last  for a long time and for keeping to be used again
  • When you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a tarp (blue tarps are economical)
Silver/Black tarps are extra heavy duty
Silver/Black Tarps provide greater durability and functionality than a typical tarp. They cost a little more but provide longer life.

Silver Tarps with Black On the Reverse Side Are Used When:

  • …A heavier, more durable tarp is needed. Silver/Black tarps are 10mil thick so they’re more durable.
  • …the tarp will be subject to the punishment of high winds, snow, ice, and…
  • …intense heat is an issue. The purpose of a silver side of a silver/black tarp is to reflect UV rays. This keeps the item being covered cooler which could be desirable in most situations. The black side could be facing outward in a situation that benefits by absorbing the heat of the sun to keep what is underneath warmer.

Tarps are extremely versatile and come in an abundance of stock sizes. Our smallest size is 5’x7′ and our largest size is 100’x100′.

Tarps are made with weather-resistant grommets so they can be tied down OR so they can be joined to other tarps in order to extend the coverage area. Rope, twine, zip ties, bungee cords, and rubber straps with ‘S’ hooks are commonly used for fastening tarps.

Contractor Bag Comparison Video

Posted on

This video compares three different brands of Contractor Bags: ‘Husky’, ‘Contractor’s Choice’ (Sold in Home Depot and Lowes), and the third bag is the one WE at Mazer Wholesale, Inc. have been selling for 20 years at a much lower price.

In this demonstration, we put the three different bags to the ultimate test. In our business, we supply Disaster Restoration Contractors (like SERVPRO, ServiceMaster Restore, Puroclean, and others) as well as Commercial Roofers and Building Contractors. These customers buy bags by the pallet, saving them a lot of money. A pallet contains 3200 3mil, 42-gallon Contractor Bags. At an average savings of 15¢ per bag, our customers save over $400 across the purchase of a pallet of bags.

Equally important to consider is the value of having the pallet of bags delivered to your door. (VIA FREE DELIVERY!) The time and man hours saved by not needing to send a crew member to the store for bags is significant. You KNOW that’s expensive. See how our bag stands up to a 67lb load with screws, nails and jagged-splintered edges just as well as either of the other popular brands.

Clear Contractor Bags-Wholesaler

3 reasons why contractors use clear contractor bags. (See our entire like of heavy duty trash bags…click here)

Choose clear contractor bags when you want a large and very strong trash bag. Clear contractor bags are generally stronger and more expensive than black bags. Time is money and business

Super strong, clear bags save you money. Buy wholesale and save!

owners invest in heavy duty trash bags to reduce the chances of breaking bags.

Clear Contractor Bags are Stronger and More Flexible

  1. Clear contractor bags are stronger because they have to be made from virgin materials. Black bags can use a certain amount of recycled plastic in the manufacturing process. This is known as regrind. Recycled plastic is simply not as strong as virgin plastic. Recycled plastic cannot be used for clear bags because recycled plastic is not clear therefore cannot be used to make clear plastic bags. Because only virgin material can be used to make clear contractor bags they are naturally stronger. Even though they are the same thickness and weight. The virgin material of the clear contractor bag is stronger and more flexible.
  2. Another reason contractors use clear bags is to keep an eye on what is actually being thrown away. Unfortunately and as we all know when we have more people on the job there is more opportunity for taking shortcuts and especially for theft. Business owners cannot afford to have their tools stolen. Some workers tend to hide tools in black bags and then come back to the work site in the evening to salvage the tools they have hidden in the trash. Owners or foreman on the job can see through the clear bags to make sure they are not being ripped off by employee theft. And finally owners don’t want their employees stealing from the job site. Stealing from their clients would be a disaster. Just as employees can steal tools from the contractor they can also steal from the property where they are working. These are of course in the residences or businesses and we don’t need the headache or reputation of having missing goods from our clients properties.
  3. And finally some municipalities require clear contractor bags to make sure that recyclable material is not being thrown out with the regular trash. Municipalities which require clear bags will also dish out fines for not recycling properly. And in some municipalities, black bags simply will not be picked up.

For these reasons many smart contractors choose to pay a little bit more and use clear contractor bags on the job.
