Dumpster rental services are an essential part of any major construction or renovation project. If you think the work is done when they lay the last shingle on your roofing project, think again. The job isn’t finished until cleanup is handled, and for that task any roofer will need a professional solution.
Consider these four facts about professional dumpster rental services:
1. “Clean As You Go” Is Best.
With roofing repairs, the mess can be scattered and disruptive to daily life. Old and broken shingles might be left on the roof or laying around the workspace in your yard. To avoid a bigger mess, your roofing company should secure a dumpster rental early on in the process. This will provide a way to minimize and contain the mess of roofing as work progresses.
Cleaning as you go is a good rule of thumb for any size mess, from cooking in the kitchen to doing major overhaul on the roof of your home.
2. Size Comparisons Matter.
The best roofing crew will have experience to rely on when estimating the size of your dumpster rental. Choosing a dumpster that is cost-effective and also covers the dimensions of space that the project requires is essential. The size of the dumpster rental will be largely dependent on the size of the roof, or more specifically, the number of shingles being replaced.
In roofing, a “square” is the standard unit of measurement. One “square” is equivalent to 100 square feet. So if your house is 10 square, the roofing crew will be replacing 1,000 square feet of shingle space.
3. Shingle Style Is a Factor.
There are two main types of shingles – 3 tab shingles and architectural shingles. 3 Tab are more traditional and lightweight. Architectural shingles are heavier and more likely to impact your budget.
If you are disposing of these shingles, you may end up paying more for their weight in the dumpster. Taking this factor into consideration beforehand will guide the dumpster selection process, so you don’t end up over-paying for a large dumpster or under-estimating the parameter of the job with a small one.
4. You’ll Want to Know about the Disposal Process.
The weight capacity of the dumpster is also a factor of consideration for roofing projects. Different styles of shingle will vary significantly in weight, but there are other materials to consider – sheetrock, lumber, and other heavy debris may need to be dealt with.
An experienced contractor will know what size dumpster to rent and how to handle the disposal process. Recycling has become a very popular solution for roofing materials. Processed shingles can be used very successfully as paving materials and have become a primary source for road construction.
