Hi All

I need to paint the windows at the back of our house, so require scaffolding to be carried through the house and erected. Does anyone know of a reliable, careful firm that they have used that I could approach?

Many thanks

Why not hire a scaffolding tower and erect yourself? Easily put together and cleaner than a bunch of guys marching through the house.

But not for 4 storeys... unless you have a death wish.

Ah! Yes, wouldn't recommend it:)

Did you ever sort out your scaffolders? I need them to get my new curtain walling up to my seventh floor flat.

No, I put the project on hold until next year when I will probably take a recomendation from the decorator. Why do you need scaffolding for curtain walling?

I have to get everything up to the seventh floor and some components such as the frame for the patio doors are too big to go in the lift or through any of the doors in our building. If I get it sorted out I will let you know which scaffolders I use if they are any good.

What about a crane? How do your neighbours feel about having scaffolding erected?

We would need a very large crane and have to close the road etc, I was quoted 8000. Scaffolding won't really affect my neighbours as it will be on roof of the floor below and my roof terrace to hold the hoists. The job should only take one week.
