3 Projects To Tackle Over Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of the summer, but isn't necessarily the time you will (or should) say to yourself "Oh, this is the perfect time for housework!". But between BBQs and lounging around, devoting some of the extra time afforded by a three-day weekend to your home can give you the gift of a cleaner, happier home just in time for the coming busy fall season. 

Here are a few Labor Day weekend project ideas to make the transition into the new season a little easier, without having to sacrifice your entire weekend. 

1. Clean out the garage

Can you fit your car in your garage? The garage is where we toss everything that doesn't have a place in the house. If you find yourself using your garage as a receptacle, it's likely that you haven't resolved all your organizing challenges within your home. Reclaim your garage and restore order. Spend the weekend organizing by zones, decluttering and sorting items.

2. Organize your closet            

Knowing what's in your closet will keep you from buying duplicates and save you money. A good rule of thumb is if you haven't worn it in a year, it's time to go. Paring down your belongings will not only free up more time, space, and money, but it can also free you from stress. 

3. Update your bathroom

If leaky faucets and shower heads are making your bathroom routines impossible, the weekend is a good time to take care of this important and frequently used area. These small updates will not only create a fresh new feel, but will also add value to your home.

Rent a Dumpster For Your Roof Replacement

It doesn't matter if you are a contractor or an individual homeowner who plans on replacing their roof themselves, renting a dumpster for your roofing debris just makes sense!

Our 10 yard dumpster is great for a roof tear off! 

Here are 3 great reasons to choose a roll-off dumpster for your next roofing project:

1. The dumpster can be placed up against the house to make it easy to throw the shingles and other roofing materials into. This will reduce the risk of materials blowing into your neighbor's yard and will keep your job site looking clean.

2. Shingles are very heavy. Did you know 7-10 squares of shingles equal 1 ton?? The average roof area is 30-40 squares. That is about 3 to 4 tons of materials! If you plan on hauling your shingles to the dump yourself with a trailer, think about the stress placed on your vehicle to haul that much weight. The landfill is also an uneven terrain that makes driving a heavy trailer through it very difficult. The risk of breaking your trailer hitch, axle, or getting nails in your tires is very high! Why take that risk? Let someone else do it!

3. New roofs or roof repairs can also come with stray nails being left behind once the job is finished. To help avoid this, on pick up, our uniformed Dumpster Delivery Experts will tarp and load your rental for transportation. Once loaded, they will sweep up the area around where the bin was placed to make sure no loose debris are left behind. At Bin There Dump That are the clean guys in a trashy business!
