Scaffolding Tradesmen – what do they do?

A scaffolder is a building professional who specializes in putting up scaffolds and platforms. Scaffolders erect scaffolds related to building construction.

scaffoldingPutting up scaffolding starts with determining the requirements for the job and making a plan. Scaffolding is classically made from metal pipes which can be clicked together to create a frame which is easily configured as needs change. Wood can also be used.

As it is put up, platforms are established for holding tools and walking. The scaffolder also erects safety measures such as nets to catch dropped tools. When the job is finished, scaffolders dismantle the it and take it away.

Scaffolding is needed for some building construction, along with painting, renovation, and restoration of all sorts of structures. A scaffolder may work as part of a team of people to put up a stable, well-anchored scaffolding which may stay up for weeks, months, or years, depending on the job. It may need to be adjusted and reconfigured every so often as the job progresses, and a scaffolder may have special concerns if restoration work is occurring, as he or she wants to avoid damaging the structure beneath the scaffolding.

When hiring a scaffolding professional check their reviews and references to make sure they are have knowledge of all applicable building laws.

  • Install scaffolding
  • Dismantle, remove and adjust scaffolding
  • Provide stairway towers up the side of a building
