Private Residential Scaffolding in Staffordshire

Scaffolding in Staffordshire from Network Scaffold is a must if you’re considering extending or improving the look of your home.
Using scaffolding is common sense for jobs that require working at height but as an experienced contractor, we can advise on all of the appropriate equipment you’ll need.

Attention to Detail with Scaffolding in Staffordshire

Scaffolding for residential properties typically follows a standard structure with your supporting scaffold built from the base up to the set design. Using our years of knowledge we will construct your scaffold to a bespoke design which will ensure the structure is strong, rigid and stable ready for use.
We are often asked if you will need a licence for putting up scaffolding around your property; the answer is no but if it goes outside of your property such as on the pavement or road outside you will need to obtain a licence from your local council.

It’s your responsibility to make sure you have the appropriate paperwork when applying for a license and schedule work at quieter times of the day, or you will need to request a highway close from the council.
When it comes to health and safety you will need to adhere to the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 which says the person who requested the work is responsible for the safety of everyone on the site plus anyone who may be affected by the work e.g. the general public.
Once you’ve hired your scaffolding there are three times you must check it:

  • Before the scaffolding is used
  • Every seven days when erected
  • Following alterations, damage or extreme weather conditions
