Installing new vinyl siding or getting a roof replacement is always an exciting time for any homeowner. With so many things that you need to consider during these projects, it’s easy to overlook one or two essential things in favor of the more pressing issues. One aspect that homeowners tend not to think about during these types of construction is waste disposal.
When you hire a full-service roofing and siding contractor, waste disposal is always part of their responsibility. These professionals will always clean up after themselves and leave your home in the way that they arrived in. However, if you’re concerned about how much materials are wasted during the process, our experts at Done-Right Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd. offer the following tips to help minimize waste during home remodels.
Efficient Plans Mean Less Wastage
The best way to produce less waste during your project is to plan for it with your residential or commercial roofer right from the start. This could mean making exact measurements to size your home as accurately as possible. In most cases, contractors and homeowners tend to overestimate what they need because it’s better to be in excess. However, if you take the correct sizes right from the start, you can plan to buy only what you need.
Hire the Right People for the Job
If you’re trying to qualify for LEED points for your commercial property, you want to include proper waste management and disposal at the start of your remodel. But this also means you need to have the right documentation to prove that you have done it. Hiring a waste hauler can provide you with the right requirements to earn LEED points for your project.
If buying in excess can’t be avoided in your roof replacement project, you can always keep them around for future use. Extra shingles can help cover up a backyard shed, and leftover wood might make for a nice chair, table, or bench.
