Roof Replacements Shouldn’t Hurt with Rusty Nails

EquipterIf you're anything like us here at West Side Roofing, your family matters the most. And with that comes the safety and security of your children. Before choosing the correct contractor to replace your roof, think about what you might have to live with for years on the ground and not up on your roof after it’s done. Most people don’t really think about this one simple thing… “nails”. That’s right rusty old nails that fall onto the ground during a roof tear-off. If you choose the wrong contractor, this could cause you months and maybe even years of heartache in your yard. The last thing anybody wants is an unsafe yard for your pets, children and even yourself.  That’s why choosing the right roofing contractor matters more than just the installation and beauty of your roof. 

The Proper Equipment for Roof Tear-Off and Replacements

Have you ever heard of an Equipter?  Don’t worry most people have not. Imagine something similar to a dumpster that hydraulically lifts up to the level of your roof so that during a tear off of your old roof, the debris never falls 20 feet to the ground, it’s simply torn off and thrown into the Equipter. In fact, watch the video to get a good idea of how this works:

Why do we use Equipters?

So why do we use them? It really goes back to our roots of being a family company with family values. We could simply do it the old fashion way and dump everything down into your yard, but going that extra mile gives you the added piece of mind that not only will your roof installation go smoothly but the clean-up will be, well clean!!!
