Roll-Off Dumpster Rentals for Roofing Shingles

DumpsterRoofing projects can generate a deceiving amount of waste. The typical roof is covered with more shingles than meets the eye. In fact, older roofs may even have multiple layers of shingles on top of each other. It is best to have a dumpster in place before starting your roofing project to avoid significant ground clean-up work. We offer a variety of construction dumpster rentals that are perfectly suited for residential or commercial roofing projects.

Dumpsters to Suit Any Size Roofing Project

To decide which roofing dumpster rental is right for your job, it is best to know the square footage of the roof. Most residential roofs have either 3-tab or architectural asphalt shingles. 3-tab shingles weigh about 250 pounds per 100 square feet, while architectural shingles weigh significantly more at about 400 pounds per 100 square feet. 

Knowing the style of your old shingles will make it easier to decide the size of the dumpster required for your roofing materials. A 10 yard dumpster rental should be sufficient for a roofing job of up to 40 squares (400 square feet).  A 20 yard dumpster rental should be sufficient for up to 80 squares (800 square feet). For any job larger than 80 squares, we recommend contacting us for a 30 yard dumpster rental. Large commercial roof projects may need our biggest dumpster size available, the 40 yard dumpster rental

PRO TIP #1: When selecting a dumpster size, also keep in mind that you will likely need to dispose of additional roofing-related materials, such as felt paper, wood, underlayment, flashing, trim, and fascia board. All of these materials will require additional space in the dumpster. If you are unsure of the dumpster size required for your project, always go with the larger dumpster to minimize the potential downtime and additional expense associated with a second dumpster. 

PRO TIP #2: If you do not know the square footage of your roof, but you instead know the number of replacement shingle bundles, keep in mind that each bundle is designed to cover roughly 33 and 1/3 square feet. We understand that roofing calculations can get tricky. If you need help, please give us a call and we would be happy to assist with your roofing dumpster selection.
