How To Select The Perfect Dumpster When Doing Roof Replacement

If you're about to replace your roof, then you are probably going to get a lot of debris coming off it. To keep things tidy, you should hire a dumpster to collect waste. In some places, it is illegal for you to not have some kind of plan for proper waste disposal.

Whether or not it's a lot, you must have a waste disposal plan. Part of it will usually involve renting a dumpster.  Here are some tips for making the right choice.

Know the Amount of Waste

You must identify the amount of waste that you are going to have coming off the roof. The best course of action is to ensure that your roofer gathers all the debris in one location.  

When there is one big pile, it will be easier for you to determine the size of the dumpster that you will need. An experienced roofing contractor will understand how to measure the amount of debris you need and even give you advice about the size of the dumpster that you need.

Select the Dumpster Size

As mentioned before, once you know the amount of waste that will come off the roof, it will be easier for you to determine the size of the dumpster that you need. The size of the dumpster available for rental can vary significantly.  

This is why you need to note the amount of debris that is coming off the roof. If you choose a dumpster that is too small, you're going to need to rent an additional one which will cost you money. If you rent one that is too large, you will also be wasting money. Getting the sizing right is critical, so pay attention when doing this.

Get Permission

You must get the right permissions before you rent a dumpster. Whether you need a permit or not depends on where you plan to put the dumpster.

If you plan on keeping the dumpster in your driveway or on your property, likely, you will not need to get a permit. However, if it's not convenient for you to do this and you need to put a dumpster anywhere on the street, it is going to be necessary for you to get a permit.

Getting the right dumpster for your roof replacement project is critical. Having a firm idea of how you should go about getting a dumpster is important. Remember that often you don't have to go it alone; your roofer and your dumpster rental company can also help you make the right choice.
