To help customers understand more about our scaffolding hire services, we’ve answered a handful of frequently-asked questions on this page. We like to think of ourselves as one of the leading scaffolding companies covering Kingston and the surrounding Surrey area, and we offer as much advice and help to potential clients as possible.
If you have any questions about the services our scaffolding erectors offer, or need advice on any other scaffolding issues we haven’t mentioned, please don’t hesitate to call now.
The ground I’m working on is sloped. Can scaffolding still be used?
Our scaffolding erectors are able to construct towers on most surfaces. We take the necessary precautions to make sure that all scaffolding constructed is safe and secure for use at your site in Kingston or any of the surrounding areas. This includes making provisions for sloped and uneven ground whenever necessary.
Can I hire scaffolding and put it up myself?
We always advise customers to let scaffolding companies such as DAG Scaffolding take care of any tower construction. Scaffolding erectors have to go through intensive training and safety courses before being allowed to work on scaffolding structures. Your safety matters to us so we always insist on you using CITB certified personnel.
Why use scaffolding hire instead of ladders?
Scaffolding hire is a much safer way to carry out work at height. It offers comfort and ease when fixing guttering or undertaking roofing, renovation and building work. Ladders restrict movement, limit accessibility and result in it taking far longer to complete the task.
How long have DAG Scaffolding been trading?
We started out in 1987 and since then, we’ve gone from strength to strength to become one of the leading scaffolding companies to cover Kingston and many other parts of South West London and the South East. Our combined experience and knowledge ensure we’re perfectly placed to provide scaffolding hire for any project, big or small.
Is scaffolding inspected once completed?
We carry out a number of tests to make sure scaffolding is ready to use onsite in Kingston. Our scaffolding erectors will also make periodical checks throughout your hire period to make sure that the structure is safe and stable enough for continued use.
If there have been strong winds overnight, what should I do?
If you have any concerns, or when we’ve been alerted to adverse weather, our scaffolding erectors can visit your Kingston site the next day to conduct a complete safety inspection. Our personnel carry out thorough checks to make sure scaffolding hire stays fit for purpose.
How much does scaffolding hire cost?
We can only provide accurate costings once we’ve carried out a full estimate. These estimates are free of charge and you’re never under obligation to use our scaffolding services. However, you’ll soon find that we’re one of the most cost-effective and price-friendly scaffolding companies covering the whole of the Kingston area.
