Occasions When you Might Need to Hire Scaffolding

Building maintenance covers a wide range of issues, and there are many occasions when you might need a safe working platform to carry out repairs or make improvements to your home. We have all seen the huge scaffolding on commercial developments, yet the same supplier would also be able to provide temporary scaffolding for domestic customers, and here are a few jobs that would require the erection of temporary scaffolding.

  1. Roofing Repairs – It might be that your fascia and soffit boards are in need of replacement, or you simply want to repaint them, and by having the local scaffolders in Bromley set up a small section, you can safely access the sections to be worked on.
  2. Rendering the External Walls – Many UK homeowners like to have the exterior walls rendered, as it offers both protection and extra insulation, and your local scaffolder can prepare a safe working platform that allows for the work to be safely completed.
  1. Chimney Repairs – Due to the harsh UK climate, the chimney might be in need of repair, and the safest way to do this is to have a small section of scaffolding erected that allows the workmen safe and easy access.
  1. Replacing the Upstairs Windows – If you plan to install UPVC double glazed windows on the second storey, you will need a safe working platform as the windows are very heavy.

Working above ground level without an adequately safe working platform is extremely dangerous, and should your home be in need of repairs that are above ground level, talk to your local scaffolding contractor, who would be happy to quote for the project.
