Thompson's Vacuum Method Ideal for Efficient Roof Rock Removal

Our versatile industrial vacuuming services has been recently "sweeping" the roofing business. We have been working with a large commercial roofing contractor to remove commercial roof rock ballast.

As a recent example, our team completed ballast removal (1” river rock) at a 120,000 ft. Amazon distribution center. Our vacuuming method has proven much safer and more efficient than the traditional shovel, wheelbarrow, and strong back method that is often the norm. Our clients have been extremely impressed with our attention to safety and overall workmanship on these types of jobs, and we have begun expanding this service across all of our locations.
