If your next home construction project needs scaffolding, there will be some factors that you will need to be aware of to help your project go smoothly and without delay. If this is your first time using scaffolding, it could be tough to think about all the variables and factors to consider when starting off and talking to your project manager. The following points are there to help you manage your scaffolding needs on your construction project. For information about the different types of scaffolding options, take a look at our scaffolding services page and determine which scaffolding you need.
What is the cost of scaffolding?
The biggest question for everyone; the price of the scaffolding. This depends hugely on the amount of scaffolding you may need for the project, but on average you can expect a single scaffold up to 10m high to cost you around £600-£650 a week. That can be a rough guide for you to use, but depending on the type of scaffolding you need, the size of the project and how long you need the scaffolding for this number will change. If you aren’t confident on what scaffolding you need for your project, talk to our team today for advice and more information.
Do I need to rent scaffolding?
Whether you’re renting scaffolding for a commercial or domestic project, the amount of time needed to have the scaffolding for will be a factor for any project. If you need scaffolding for a relatively short period of time for a commercial project; about three months or less, renting some scaffolding is a wise choice. The same can be said for any domestic project involving scaffolding, you shouldn’t need the scaffolding for too long so renting it out is a great option. However, if you are looking for a more permanent scaffolding then you should consider your options before committing to something that may cost you more in the long run.
Do I need to store scaffolding?
Storing and transporting your scaffolding can be a logistical issue, especially when you have more than one project that needs scaffolding at the same time. When you need to store your scaffolding, it becomes a much bigger task than simply renting it out or hiring a scaffolding company to take care of it for you. This is because to store your scaffolding you need significant space to do so and the right vehicle to transport it to the project location and back again once you are finished with it. However if you’re renting the scaffolding or hiring a scaffold company, you can let someone else worry about the logistics of storing and even transporting that scaffolding for your project.
