Three-tab shingles are more traditional shingles. They are common and used for many homes. This type of shingle is lighter than architectural shingles.
It all comes down to the weight of your shingle debris when choosing the right dumpster. It’s not enough to simply order the correct size; you need to make sure that the company you use can haul the weight of your shingle debris. A lot of smaller dumpsters are delivered with smaller trucks that are limited in their abilities. It is essential to consider the weight limits offered in addition to the size of the dumpster. If a company provides a “2-ton limit” and you have 6 tons of shingles, you may be stuck with hundreds in overage fees. Knowing the weight limit for your dumpster rental will help you select the best dumpster for your job.
