CHOOSING THE RIGHT BIN FOR YOUR ROOFING JOB!

 Calculating for the number of squares.




1st Steps calculate the number of squares (WIDTH OF ROOF x LENGTH OF ROOF = SQUARE FOOTAGE OF ROOF).


A roofing square is equal to 100 square feet.

There are 3 bundles of shingles in each square.

Then take the square footage of your roof and divide that by 100 to get your number of squares.

(WxL=SQ FT) (SQFT/100= #OF SQUARES)



Calculating the weight of roofing materials in tons to determine bin size. (2,000lbs= 1 ton)




Take pounds per square and multiply that by the number of squares, and that will equal your total weight in pounds, then divide total weight in pounds by 2,000 to calculate your weight in tons.

(LBS PER SQUARE x #OF SQUARES = TOTAL WEIGHT IN POUNDS) (TOTAL WEIGHT IN POUNDS/2,000 = WEIGHT IN TONS)


Standard three-tab shingling is 235 pounds per square.


Dimensional/Architectural shingling is 350 pounds per square (this is an average dimensional shingles can vary in weight)


Example: (standard 3-tab shingles)

6Yard Bin can hold up to 20 square.


10Yard Bin can hold up to 32 square.


15Yard Bin can hold up to 45 square.





(20Yard Bins may not be used for roofing materials).

Tips for your Carpet Removal Project Maricriz Rodriguez                                                                    Nov 25, 2020 After years of use and many ambitious deep cleanings, you might be ready to part ways with your carpet flooring because it's too high maintenance. Carpets are available in many colors, textures, and styles, but they're also prone to attracting dirt, debris, and various allergens. Learn how to remove old, worn-out carpet from your home before installing brand new floors with this step-by-step guide. The Disadvantages of Carpet For homeowners who live in colder parts of the country, carpet can add comfort by keeping their feet warm during the winter. However, it might be easier to have a different flooring type, such as hardwood, tile, or laminate, if you have multiple pets or a member of your family has severe allergies. Depending on the size of your home and your lifestyle, maintaining carpet can be a full-time job, and you may have to deal wit
  Shed Demo     Step 1: Empty-out the Shed It's easier to tear down an empty shed than a full shed.  Store those items you wish to save.  This is also great time to go through unneeded or broken items. Three (3) piles should do:  1. donate/recycle, 2. hazardous, and 3. demo/trash. Step 2: Inside Shed Fixtures Prior to the demo, remove any wall fixtures, shelving, or storage accessories. This will make for a safer demo execution. Step 3: Roof Dismantling The roof is the place to start. When tearing down the shed, you want to work top-to-bottom.   Shingled roofs may be brittle and stuck together, so they will tear when removed.  Strip from top-to-bottom and use a screwdriver or crowbar to take off any loose screws. Once you have stripped the roof all the way to the bare wood, remove any remaining nails holding the roof where attached to the trusses or walls. Be careful as the walls of the shed do not immediately fall when the roof is removed. You will have to dismantle th
