What about the holes from the satellite dish?

First, we drill out and remove the plastic or metal anchors. Then we clean the hole with a small wire brush and blow out all the dust in the hole, so we have a clean service to bond the filler. We then fill the hole with a high-quality polyurethane caulk to keep the water out.

Do you remove the satellite dish wires?

Wires are removed from the back of the dish to one of the following points:

  1. If the wire enters the home, we will cut it at the point of entry and remove the plastic bushing and fill the hole.
  • If the wire enters a junction box, we will cut the wire at the junction box.
  • If the wire connects to a splitter, we will cut the wire at the splitter.

What about the satellite dish mounting bracket?

Brackets are removed that are mounted on the side of the home or on the fascia board.

Brackets that are mounted on the roof shingles can be left in place for weatherproofing or can be removed for an additional cost, but we will not warranty the roof patch.

What area(s) do you cover/service?

A: We cover Los Angeles County, Orange County, Riverside County, San Bernardino County, San Diego County, Santa Barbara County, and Ventura County California area. View our pricing page for details on satellite dish removal and disposal.

What work is included with my order?

A: We will remove the dish (or antenna) and all exterior cabling. For orders to remove a standard sized satellite dish from a roof we leave all mounting brackets intact. If you’d like the bracket removed as well please contact us to discuss. For all ground level removals, we cut mounting poles to ground level.

Can you quote my large project?

A: Yes! Please email us the following pictures: two photos from different angles at least 30’ back from the structure so we can have some perspective as well as two photos of how the structure is mounted to the ground or roof.

What do you fill/seal the holes from the roofing material?

A: Our service for the removal of one satellite dish involves silicone coating to fill the holes as that material provides the durability and longevity to wood, stucco, brick surface. However, we recommend property owners get in touch with the respective satellite dish company or a professional roofer for repairs to the roof.

Can old Satellite Dish Receivers be re-used?

A: Satellite dish receivers, like most technology, are outdated from when you install them. The satellite TV providers have no use for the old receivers and won’t remove them for you. It costs the Satellite TV Providers more money to come to your property, remove the satellite dish, and dispose of it than it would cost them to just make and install a brand-new satellite dish receiver.

Are you environmentally friendly?

A: A landfill ban on many electronic devices to include and not limited to satellite dish receivers went into effect on January 24, 2013 so that citizens do their part for the environment by recycling as many electronic devices as possible to limit the number of those items and their hazardous components from entering the environment through landfills and other disposal activities.

Why can’t electronic devices be put out with the trash?

A: Many consumer electronic products including satellite dish receivers contain heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and mercury as well as other materials that are better kept out of the environment. Not only is recycling the law, it’s also a valuable boon to the environment since it reduces pollution while preserving natural resources.

Heavy metals?

A: When ingested through water, air, or food, heavy metals can cause cancer and brain damage, and impair growth and development in children. Heavy metals persist in the environment and can accumulate in humans and animals (especially fish) over time.
