    let say someone was tearing off two layers of normal three tab shingles and theres 3400 square feet of roof to tear off, any ideas on how big of a dumpster to get ?
    and how can you catch/collect tear off on sides of a building that you cant really drive a truck up to or set a dumpster up to ?

    the roof pitch per 12" is about 7" with old layers on still,. 15 foot both sides up to ridge, i assume metal corrugated panels would be best for this roof, ewspecialyl since its a building and is a real basic barn roof, 102 foot long and 15 both sides,

    menards or lowes is where to go for this stuff i suppose.
    i dont want ot have to do this roof again in matter of 15 or 20 years again, its just too much, i have no idea what kind of ridge piece could cover this though, or eaves/fascia pieces. with the rib shape of the panels that is,,

    thanks for anything

    I think Lowes would let you know...give em a call. Be sure to talk to their roofing 'expert'. I dunno if i'd take walls off to fit a dumpster closer...just me. I'd make a pile and move it (a lot more work but...your not risking removing load bearing walls)
