What do you need to know about hiring a scaffolder?

Having a good idea of the job at hand is essential when hiring a scaffolder. They will want to assess the requirements of the job themselves to determine exactly what equipment and how many workers will be necessary. Such an assessment is usually free of charge.

If you have been working with other tradespeople or an architect it is likely that they will have a scaffolder they can recommend to you. Most building teams will arrange their own scaffolding, so make sure this is not the case before making any new hires. Even with a recommendation, be sure to check the experience and qualifications of each of your options before making a decision. Ensure that they have a Construction Skills Certification Scheme card (CSCS), as this proves they have passed a CITB Health, Safety and Environment Test and should vouch for their skills. They should also have completed a New Entrant Trainee Scaffolding Labourer course (COTS). An experienced scaffolder could also have a Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme card (CISRS) or could be part of the National Access and Scaffolding Confederation. These organisations enforce high standards and codes of conduct for members. Finally, be sure to ask your choices to provide reviews from past customers, as this can show how experienced they are with jobs similar to yours, and can also show you how easy your choices are to work with.

Once everything has been assessed your choices should be able to provide you with a flat, hourly or daily rate. Getting a quote is usually free of charge, so do not be afraid of waiting to compare your options. You should always get a firm quote - never make a decision based on an ‘estimate’. Ask for a price breakdown, as this will help you avoid any hidden costs, and is also useful for comparing your choices. In the event that they need to bring in additional tradesmen or materials, ask if this will affect your quote.

Scaffolding can be a potentially dangerous job, so ensure that your final choice had adequate insurance cover, including guarantees relating to accidental damage. Make sure that they follow appropriate safety measures - do not consider leaving out any such measures to save money. You should be able to get these policies in writing.

An experienced professional should be able to provide all of this information.

What does a scaffolder do?

A scaffolder is a tradesperson that erects and takes down scaffolding structures, which may be required for cleaning, constructing or repairing a building. They will usually work in small teams to put up structures for external building access that may include temporary roof structures or even branded advertising. A scaffolder can also be involved in hoisting and lifting materials up to other tradespeople and installing scaffolding surrounds, which will keep debris from falling on people below.

How much does it cost to hire a scaffolder?

The cost of hiring a scaffolder will depend on the size of the project, as this will determine how many workers and materials are required. It can be very dangerous to cut costs here - if someone offers to leave out safety measures like hand bars, they are someone to avoid. It is important to be aware of your choice’s policy regarding run-on fees. If the scaffolding is left up for longer than intended, will you have to pay late fees?
