Replacing a Roof and Need a Dumpster

Have you been waiting for the weather to warm up and dry up before replacing the roof on your house or business in the greater Indianapolis area?  Have you thought about how your going to dispose of the shingles once you tear them off?

Renting a dumpster when getting a new roof is a simple and affordable way to go!  Below are a couple of tips to think about when deciding on what size dumpster you will need for your shingle disposal.

The first question a dumpster provider will ask is how many squares of shingles will you be replacing.  A quick cheat sheet when calculating is 3 bundles equals a square in roofing terminology.

The next question is there a single, double or triple layer of shingles being torn off?  How many layers plus the number of squares being replaced will help determine the size of dumpster needed.

For roofing jobs up to 30 squares (single layer) a 10-yard dumpster will work perfect.  For shingle jobs over 30 squares but under 60 squares a 15-yard dumpster will work.  The average roof being replaced in the greater Indianapolis area is 30-35 squares.

One thing that sets Bin There Dump That – Indianapolis apart from many other dumpster companies is the fact that all shingle jobs are always recycled!  We take great pride in being environmentally friendly and recycle whenever possible.  Reusing the shingles to help pave Indiana roads is a great way to ensure the shingles don’t go into a landfill!
