Before you hire scaffolding, let’s discuss some of the elements that influence the cost of scaffolding, the different kinds of scaffolding available, and average size estimates for scaffolding.

What is scaffolding?

Scaffolding is a temporary structure built using steel poles that are erected horizontally and vertically in a similar manner as a giant Meccano set would be, then laid down using wooden walking boards. Access ladders and handrails are incorporated as standards that deliver easy access to all the levels of the scaffold.

Scaffolding systems may be used in small areas or spaces where it is almost difficult for tradesmen to access such as chimneys.

Why do you need scaffolding?

Under the new health and safety law in the UK, workers on construction sites must use scaffolding platforms for access to high-level jobs. This implies that ladders are only used for minor jobs, and scaffoldings are the legal requirements for major long-term projects. 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 platforms are necessary whether you are renovating your existing building or constructing a new building. It is crucial to get an access platform to reach the elevated parts of your building. This is why scaffolding is essential, to provide easy access during construction work. A sound scaffolding structure must be erected to assure total safety on project sites.

When you use scaffolding systems, you get access to hard-to-reach areas. Scaffolding also provides a safe way for scaffolders to carry out work faster and more efficiently, saving you time and money. When heavy materials like steel beams and mortar bricks are used during construction, scaffolding is even more important.

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?

Scaffolds are constructed using metal poles that are laid vertically and horizontally. Wooden planks placed across the poles form plank walkways commonly referred to as levels or lifts. If the project requires several lifts or levels, you can add more horizontal poles or walking boards, but this can extend the timeframe for scaffold erection and increase the price of equipment.

Scaffolds require safety handrails and access ladders. Scaffold experts erect the scaffolding. They have the equipment needed to resolve issues affecting the scaffold’s safe use. Modern scaffolding is adaptable for use in tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas such as 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.

Scaffolding is now the standard for working those hard-to-reach areas of a structure. Scaffolding makes the construction process safer; it prevents accidents during renovation or construction work on high-rise buildings. Construction sites are safe and secure when scaffolding structures are used, especially when working at heights.

Can anyone erect scaffolding?

Scaffolding should be erected, designed, and dismantled by only skilled and qualified scaffolders, under the supervision of health and safety advisers. This is enforced by the work at height regulations of 2005. Insurance is invalidated if the scaffolding is installed by untrained individuals. This is why you must check the experience, qualifications, and expertise of any scaffolding company you want to hire.

What is the cost of hiring scaffolding in Burgess Hill?

Several factors determine the price of scaffolding equipment and services. Our prices start from £XXX for small projects. At Ace Scaffolding, we provide affordable scaffolding services to clients in the residential and commercial sectors. We also give our clients a free quote on demand. As a scaffolding company committed to being the best in Burgess Hill, this is the least we can do.

How is the cost of scaffolding hire calculated?

Clients generally hire scaffolding for a fixed period, often 4 weeks, but an additional fee is charged after the fixed period elapses. For larger jobs, the chances are you will have to pay additional rent if your project takes longer than you anticipated.

What are the elements that influence the price of scaffolding hire?

The price of hiring a scaffolding depends on varying factors. So if you want to hire scaffolding, it depends on the type of projects you want to do. Some of those factors that influence scaffolding hire quote include:

  • The number of scaffold lifts needed.
  • The height and length of the scaffolding structure.
  • The number of scaffold lifts that need boarding out.
  • Whether a scaffolding pavement license will be necessary and how much it costs (this varies between local councils).
  • The location of the site where the scaffolding needs to be erected.
  • If beams will be necessary for bridging certain obstacles.
  • Special access equipment or design work required.

You must also take into consideration that your scaffolding hire will increase when you are using the scaffolding system for an extended period of time. The rule of thumb is to erect scaffolding when your project is set to commence. Remember to only choose a scaffolding company that can quickly deliver, and also schedule for the installation in advance.  The aim is to not spend money on an idle scaffolding system.

What information should you put down when requesting scaffolding hire?

When you submit a scaffolding quote request, make sure you provide detailed information on your project requirements. For example, specify the size of the area where the scaffolding is erected, the kind of project – rental property refurbishments, building extension, new house build and so on. Don’t forget to include site photographs, if it will come in handy. With this detailed information, we can give you an accurate quote, and it will include a comprehensive price breakdown for your project’s scaffolding. To ensure that your quote is more precise, we will gladly give you a free site survey.
