Did you know that in the process of a roof tear-off, thousands of pounds of shingles and other roofing material, as well as thousands of nails need to be removed from the roof before the new roofing gets installed? Until recently, the common practice among roofing contractors was to either place a dumpster or a tarp next to the house to throw debris onto. Of course, with that method lots of material misses its target and can damage landscaping or simply disappear into the grass, only to be found again when your child or pet steps on a nail or sharp piece of shingle. And with the mess and safety issues, pets and children need to be kept indoors while the work is done.
But all that has changed. If you live in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area, we are pleased to be able to offer you an innovative new way to replace a roof - the New Roof No Mess® system. We recently became a member of this program and acquired what we like to call a 'roof buggy.' This mobile piece of equipment lets us maneuver it into place at the roof edge to collect all the debris and then safely transfer it to a dumpster. No more mess in your yard! No more landscape damage! No more safety issues! Check out this video to see it in action:
Our goal has always been to provide our customers with top-quality exterior home remodeling services, and we're convinced that this method of roof repair and installation will do just that. While we can use the equipment on most homes, there may be circumstances where it won't work. If your home is on a steep hill or you've got a fence that would block the roof buggy from getting next to your house, the only option is traditional roofing practices. But even in that case we'll do our very best to contain the mess, protect your property, and keep things safe.If you're ready for a new roof and want one with no mess, give us a call today for a free estimate. We install steel and other metal roofing as well as asphalt shingles in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area. We are a licensed MN exterior home remodeling contractor, and we're proud to be part of the New Roof No Mess® team! (To find out more about this innovative roofing program, click here.
