How We Keep Our Roof Replacement

Keeping the work area free of debris during roofing replacement is not often discussed, but as professional roofers, we believe it's a topic worth mentioning. Ill-prepared roofers often neglect the surrounding work areas and end up with anything from loose nails to damaged landscaping that result in untimely landscaping expenses.

How We Keep Our Roof Replacement Projects Debris Free

At West Side Roofing, however, we are aware of and are prepared for such contingencies. Here's how.

Issues With Roofing Teardown

The real work begins with a complete teardown. The old roofing – nails and all – is pushed off the roof deck using special shovels, and then pushed off the roof's edge straight onto the back of a dump truck, space permitting. In other areas, debris is pushed straight to the ground. While canvas, tarpaulin, or some other protective sheet typically protects the work area, it's often insufficient to protect the landscaping. Sometimes even uncovered windows would get damaged.

Professional Roofing Debris Disposal

Preventing that kind of damage during roofing installation is a challenge. Some would suggest that the solution is to catch the debris before it hits the ground using a catch-all safety net, but it presents three problems: one, it wouldn't catch smaller items like roofing nails. Two, moving debris from the net to the dump truck would be difficult and time-consuming. And three, not every home would have a tree or a post that these nets can be tied to.

Our solution is the Equipter RB4000 Roofers Buggy, or simply, The Equipter. It is a specially-designed buggy equipped with a containment box similar to dump trucks. The attached hydraulic arm allows the operator to raised the box as close to the roof's edge as needed, catching all the debris from the source. The Equipter is small enough to be maneuvered in spaces where dump trucks can't get into, which means no matter how tight the space is, your flowerbeds, shrubbery, and landscaping is unharmed.
