Roofing Dumpsters

Dumpster Rentals or Dumpster Bin Rentals are great ways to organize all your waste and dispose of it in an environmentally friendly manner. It keeps your job site, office or home clean and organized in order to proceed with your project hassle free. This article is dedicated to all our roofing clients as well as prospective clients who are looking to gather some information before proceeding with their Roofing Job.

It is recommended you hire a professional roofing contractor for your project as it is one of the more complicated jobs with high risk potential. Roofing Contractor’s order Disposal Bins or Disposal Bin Rentals in order to dispose of the large amount of waste that is generated by striping your current roof. They are often counted in layers and bundles and the size of the bin you require will be based on those factors.

How Do I Know the Size of my Dumpster Rental? 

In Short – Count the number of bundles and multiply it by the layers on your roof. Depending on the size of your project, you will require a bin size anywhere from 14 yards to 40 yards. In our experience with our roofing clients, 100 bundles usually weighs about 4 tons. If it has two layers then it would become 8 tons.

So depending on the size of your house as well as the number of bundles you are looking to replace, order your dumpster rental correctly. Usually, the 14 yards is the most common form of bin ordered for Roofing Jobs as the larger bins – 30-40 yard, are used in massive construction projects. Sometimes, you might even need to order multiple dumpsters just to accommodate for the amount of debris that is coming off.

Roofers obviously dispose of a lot of waste. Shingles, Wood, Plastic and Nails are the four common things found inside a roofing dumpster rental. It is a lot easier for them to do a great job with a dumpster on site to clear your roof as quickly as possible. Imagine for a second, they were keeping it on the roof…or throwing it on your driveway. That is a recipe for disaster. The area becomes one giant hazard with sharp pieces of wood and nails everywhere which can seriously injure people. Be Safe and Choose your Dumpster Rental wisely!
