What is scaffolding?
Scaffolding is a temporary support structure used when constructing buildings, bridges or other complex structures. It provides the necessary support for workers and materials during construction, as well as providing access to hard-to-reach areas.
Do I need scaffolding?
Scaffolding allows safe access to difficult areas on your property/buildings. Depending on the size and nature of your projects, scaffolding can significantly speed up your projects – especially with new builds and exterior renovations if your building is taller than 1 storey. Contact us for a consult if you are still unsure!
How long does scaffolding take to set up?
The time it takes to set up scaffolding depends on the complexity of the structure. A simple scaffold may only take a few hours, while more complex structures could take days to complete. We can provide you with a more accurate estimate once we know the details of your project.
What safety considerations should I keep in mind when using scaffolding?
Safety is always the top priority whenever scaffolding is used. Make sure to inspect the equipment regularly, and that all users are wearing appropriate PPE. All our jobs have pre-inspections and safety audits. Read more about this on our Health & Safety page.
Where are you based?
We are based in Plimmerton and we provide scaffolding services all throughout the wider Wellington region, including Otaki and Levin.
What to consider when hiring scaffolders for your project?
Most importantly, you want to make sure that the person erecting the scaffolding is knowledgeable and NZ-qualified for the job.
Unfortunately, we have seen some clients spend a fortune fixing damage from previous, unprofessional scaffolding contractors.
Ensure contractors aren’t tieing any scaffold components to your property (such as verandas and balconies) or walking on your roof straight after a new roof replacement as one scratch/dent can lead to rust – especially if you are near the sea.
When using a reputable, certified and professional scaffolding team like ours, you don’t have to worry about any of these issues as we take all these things into consideration.
