How to Rent the Right Size Dumpster for Roofing Project

One thing is certain with building projects and that is the generation of lots of wastes. In order to forestall this problem, you need to think about choosing the right dumpster that will clear out the estimated volume of debris. If you are unsure about how to go about this, please contact us at DFW Rolloff. Here are some of the things to consider to rent the right size of dumpster for roofing project;

Types of Debris

The type of roofing material you are dealing with will determine the type of debris generated. Most rubbish will come from the shingles of the roof. The type of waste generated will largely determine the size of the debris. If you are aware that you will be dealing mostly with shingles of the roof, then you should be able to manage the waste better. You need to keep in mind that roofing shingles also come in varying sizes and durability.

If for instance, your house measures 20 sq. it simply means your roof will measure up to 2000 sq. Ft. For a 20 sq. home, you should expect between 3,500 and 5,000 pounds of weight, because 100 sq. ft of shingles should weigh between 50 and 80 pounds. Now that you have an estimate of the weight of the roofing materials it is time to choose the right dumpster to fetch and transport it to the landfill or recycling center.

Choosing the Right Type of Dumpster

The least size of dumpster you will likely see measures 6 cubic yards and it can only hold roughly 3,000 pounds of waste. For this reason, you will need a minimum of 10 or 15 cubic yard dumpster capacity. If you believe you will generate up to 2 layers of roofing materials, then you will need up to 20 cubic yards of dumpster to manage the waste efficiently. Any estimate of debris higher than 2 layers of roofing materials means you may have to rent a 30-yard dumpster. The 30-yard dumpster offers the most effective dumpster that is required to handle all shingle-related roof debris.
