Lowcountry Roofing: Quality Roofing Contractors in Charleston
If you are a homeowner who is looking for a challenging do-it-yourself home repair project, tearing off the old roof and replacing it with a new one may be just the job for you. Roof repair is a big job, and it does require a lot of work. For this reason, many choose to use the services of a Charleston roofing company.
However, if you take the time to prepare in advance and to purchase the correct tools, you can do the job efficiently. In most circumstances, a building permit is going to be required, so it would be a good idea to talk with the local municipal building inspector prior to beginning the job.
Included in the preparation for the job would be ordering a trash container to hold all of the material that you are going to tear off of your roof. A 20-yard square cubit container will be just about the right size to hold all of the debris from a 1,500-square-foot roof. To make things easier on yourself, have the individual who delivers the garbage bin put it right underneath one of the eaves of your roof. This way, you can easily throw any material you need off of the roof and dump it directly into the container. More than likely the project is going to take a little less than a week, so it may be a good idea to plan to have the garbage bin rented for at least a week. This way, if you have a little bit of get up and go or you have some friends helping you, you will not only be able to dump the trash from the old roof, you also be able to dump any garbage created from the installation of the new roof into the bin.
