First Day of Fall is Here!!

Today is the first day of Fall! What does Fall mean to you?

There are so many things that come to mind when we hear fall! Our first thought is the beautiful color changing and falling of the leaves. We also enjoy cool crisp nights, tailgating and football, bonfires and hayrides, and of course pumpkin patches and Halloween!

One of our favorite things about fall are all the amazing decorations!! From fallen leaves, spicy scented candles, pumpkins, and scary Halloween decorations, there are so many things to choose to make your home festive for fall! Check out Southern Living magazine for some great decorating ideas!

Of course, before you start getting your decorations out you want to make sure your home is clean and uncluttered! Just like spring cleaning there are a lot of things you need to do to get your home ready for fall and the upcoming winter! Such as cleaning gutters and downspouts, cleaning patio furniture, storing away summer toys, cleaning baseboards, and scheduling furnace inspections.  Several great fall cleaning checklists can be found online.

Of course, for those BIG fall cleanouts Bin There Dump That Oklahoma City is there for you! Our residential friendly bins are perfect for getting your home organized for the upcoming holiday season! Give us a call at 405-640-4345 and we will bring you the bin that is just right for you!

Rent a Dumpster For Your Roof Replacement

It doesn't matter if you are a roofing contractor or an individual homeowner who plans on replacing their roof themselves.  Renting a dumpster for your roofing debris just makes sense!

10 and 15 yard dumpsters are perfect for a roof tear off!
Here are 3 great reasons to choose a roll-off dumpster for your next roofing project:

1. The dumpster can be placed up against the house to make it easy to throw the shingles and other roofing materials into.  This will reduce the risk of materials blowing into your neighbor's yard and will keep your job site looking clean.

2. The dumpster can be picked up in the evening after the job is completed.  All area dumps/landfills close at 5pm on weekdays and noon on Saturday.  Therefore, if you choose to haul away your own roofing materials and your job is not completed until evening you will have to wait until the next morning to dispose of your used roofing materials.

3. Shingles are very heavy.  Did you know 8 squares of laminate shingles equal 1 ton?? The average roof in the Oklahoma City area is 30-40 squares.  That is about 4 to 5 tons of materials!  If you plan on hauling your shingles to the dump yourself with a trailer, think about the stress placed on your vehicle to haul that much weight.  The landfill is also an uneven terrain that makes driving a heavy trailer through it very difficult.  The risk of breaking your trailer hitch, axle, or getting nails in your tires is very high! Why take that risk?  Let someone else do it!

If this sounds like the right solution for your roofing project or you have more questions about our service please do not hesitate to give us a call at 405-640-4345. Whether you are a homeowner or a contractor someone from our office would be happy to assist you!
