Before getting scaffolding services for your project, you should understand the factors influencing its cost; let’s explore scaffolding types and typical size estimates for projects.
What is scaffolding?
Scaffolding consists of a temporary frame made from stainless steel poles that are situated horizontally and vertically to provide easy access, much similar to a Meccano giant set — and then laid out with wooden walk boards. Scaffolding is a versatile structure; it is adaptable for use in hard-to-reach areas and narrow spaces, such as chimneys.
Why do you need scaffolding?
According to the current health and safety legislation in the UK, it is now mandated that tradesmen use scaffolding platforms for access when working at height. This means the use of ladders is approved for quick jobs. For long project work at heights, scaffolding is now the legal requirement. If you want to do jobs like the painting of external walls, roofing jobs, window replacements and fascias and so on, scaffolding is a must. Access structures make it easy for heights and inaccessible areas to be reached during construction work.

They are essential for renovations, painting work, tile replacement, new building construction, and roofing jobs. Scaffolding is the ideal way to get the job done. Erecting scaffolding helps you finish the job safely. It provides access to those elusive areas of your building. In addition, scaffolding allows your professionals to conduct work quickly and in a more efficient manner, which saves money and time.
Most construction workers use scaffolding because of the heavy liftings involved in construction sites such as steel beams. Scaffolding eliminates the need to transport materials from place to place because materials and supplies can be placed on the scaffolding before work begins.

How does scaffolding work?
Scaffolding is assembled using poles arranged vertically and horizontally to form the ultimate support pattern. Wooden boards are then laid on the pole. This is referred to as lifts or levels. For projects that require numerous lifts, more horizontal poles or walking boards can be added. Doing this increases the time taken to assemble the scaffold and the overall cost.
Safety handrails and access ladders are standard requirements for scaffolds. Professional scaffolders with the relevant equipment and skill should erect scaffolding structures and also manage any issues that arise with the scaffolding structure. Most modern scaffold systems are versatile and can be used in areas where access is difficult, or around narrow spaces like around chimneys.
What are the common uses for scaffold?
Because of the current amendment to health and safety legislation in the UK, tradespeople now have to use scaffold platforms and access equipment for all kinds of work at height projects – prolonged use of ladders is now restricted. So, for situations where it is impossible to reach positions or for work in hard-to-reach areas, scaffolding platforms or towers will now be the norm. Scaffolding makes the construction process safer; it prevents accidents during renovation or construction work on high-rise buildings. The ease of use makes scaffolding the top health and safety option for working at heights.
Can anyone erect scaffolding?
Professional scaffolders design, erect, and dismantle scaffolding under the supervision of health and safety experts. This is enforced by the work at height regulations of 2005. Your insurance is rendered null and void if it is installed by unskilled and unqualified personnel. So, before hiring a scaffolding company, please ensure that they have the relevant experience and are highly trained.

What are the elements that influence the price of scaffolding hire?
There are various factors which affect the price of scaffolding hire. For one, the project type will greatly affect the price.
These factors may affect the price of scaffolding hire:
- The dimensions of the scaffolding structure
- If a a scaffolding pavement license is required and its cost
- The number of scaffolding levels required
- The number of walkways to created on the lifts/levels
- The location of the project site
- If customised designs or access equipment are required
- If beams will be needed
Scaffolding hire cost increases as long as the scaffold remains standing. The best time to assemble scaffolding is at the start of the project. Remember to only choose a scaffolding company that can quickly deliver, and also schedule for the installation in advance. The key idea is to spend on what you are using at the moment – which means paying for the scaffolding that is being used.
What information should you put down when requesting scaffolding hire?
When you are requesting for a scaffolding quote, we recommend that you fill in as much detail as possible. Essential information such as the location where the scaffolding is to be erected, the nature of the project etc should be communicated to the scaffolding company. If necessary, include site photographs for extra details.
