3 Things to Consider When Choosing Scaffolding for Rent


To make home repair jobs easier on you, it might be a good idea to rent actual scaffolding. This type of apparatus can be safer and can allow you to spread out tools and equipment you'll need for painting, repairs, and the like. Before you choose scaffolding for rent, you want to ensure you opt for the right model that you can set it up quickly and easily, and so that you know it will be sturdy. Note a few factors to consider and to ask about when you visit the home improvement supply store.

1. Ask how quickly it sets up

Typically the scaffolding you hire for work at home needs assembling, and you should ask how long it takes to set it up. Lightweight scaffolding may only have two or three pieces that snap into place, but larger pieces may have several sections that you'll need to set up and then screw into place. You may feel as if you're putting together furniture by the time your scaffolding is set up! It might be good to have the scaffolding hire services show you how a piece gets put together before you decide that it would work for you.

2. Note how the scaffolding is accessed

Some scaffolding may have an internal ladder that you use for accessing the highest point, but this can be cumbersome for some people. Some models have stairs that are used to access the platform and this can be a better option; the stairs go across the scaffolding rather than just going up like a ladder. If you're not steady on a ladder or need to carry heavy equipment, tools, and other items with you to the tallest point, choose the model with the internal staircase.

3. Know the difference between indoor and outdoor scaffolding

Don't assume that all scaffolding is exactly alike, but know the difference between indoor and outdoor scaffolding. Outdoor scaffolding should have added braces to keep it steady, along with heavy-duty casters and locks. It may also be heavier, to keep it from swaying in the wind. Indoor scaffolding will be more lightweight and may be thinner so that it fits through doorways more readily.

The casters may also be thinner so that they don't tear up carpets and flooring. Note to the rental agency the job for which you need the scaffolding so you're sure to get either an indoor or outdoor type.
