What Dumpster Size is Required for a Roof Tear-Off?

Our 2 Step Process in Recommended the Best Dumpster
1. Clarify Total Roofing Squares Needed… (not the same as square footage)
1 roofing square is comparable of 100 square feet of shingles.
3 bundles of shingles = 1 roofing square = approx. 250 lbs.
If you know how many bundles, you need to buy… You are basically there.
If you need to obtain 30 bundles of asphalt shingles, you then have a 10 square roof (30 divided by 3 = 10). If you have 2 layers of asphalt shingles on the current roof… Then you have a total of 20 square.
If you do not know your Total Roofing Squares use the link below or just pose a question to your roofing company…
2. A Guild for Asphalt Shingle & Dumpster Size
Use the table below to verify what size dumpster you will require for asphalt shingles. Make certain to factor in the number of layers being stripped off.
As an example 20 Square x 2 Layers = 40sq.
Be aware that if you have cedar shakes to remove you will need a bigger dumpster. For example – If you have 10 roofing squares of cedar shakes you will need a 10-yard container.
