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!
