The Need for Scaffolding

When work is going to be carried out on practically any type of building, scaffolding might well be needed whether it is being constructed, demolished or being significantly repaired. The size of the building matters not, or whether it's public, industrial or domestic. High buildings that have to be demolished, have scaffolding put up first, which is then disassembled from the top down as the building gets shorter and shorter. It does not matter what the needs are, there is a type of scaffolding to suit.

Temporary Roofing

One sort of scaffold that's frequently used on properties in Castleford, is temporary roofing. When extensive work is being done on a roof, this scaffolding is employed to protect the interior of the property from damage by the elements. Offices and industrial premises can also be protected by temporary roofing scaffolds, not just domestic houses. A temporary roof scaffold can be built into an existing scaffolding framework or can be erected as a stand-alone structure whenever additional scaffolding is not required. In instances where they will later have to be moved as work advances, they can even be mobile. Such assignments as new builds, roof replacements, fire damaged properties and loft conversions are ideal candidates for the application of temporary roof scaffolds.
