Frequently Asked Questions

It’s important to understand how much to budget for when planning your residential project. We quote each residential scaffolding project according to the labour, hire and transportation required. Very small and basic residential scaffolding projects can start from $880, while complex, labour intensive double storey scaffolding can cost between $5,000 and $10,000, depending on the difficulty.

We have a minimum seven day hire period then charge daily (pro-rata) thereafter, so you only pay for the scaffolding as you use it.

When you have a tight budget, you might be wondering if scaffolding is
necessary, and hoping your trades can simply use ladders. Scaffolding is much safer, of course. Australian law requires scaffolding, or other control measures, be in place for any project where a fall hazard of two or more metres may exist.

Contact us to give us your project specifications and we can advise if you need scaffolding or if other control methods may be appropriate.

Typical residential scaffolding projects need a combination of:

  • jacks
  • sole boards
  • boards
  • standards
  • transoms
  • ledgers
  • hop ups
  • guard rails
  • adders
  • aluminium stairs
  • tie bars
  • clamps
  • containment mesh
  • scafftag

When we prepare your quote, we’ll often ask a range of questions about the project to recommend the right products and services to keep your site safe.

Step one: estimated price

Get an instant ballpark estimate with our quick quote tool.
Just enter your property measurements and a few other details and you’ll get a rough price guideline, to give you an indicative scaffold price.

Step two: specific, formal quote

At this stage, we need to know as much as we can about the site and project so we can prepare the right scaffolding for your needs. We will ask:

  • What is the scaffolding for and how will it be used?
  • Do you need roof access?
  • What is the width and height of the property?
  • Are power lines nearby?
  • Is it easy to access the property – are there trees or cars affecting access?
  • Is it on a sloping block?
  • How many working decks do you need?

If you aren’t sure what you need, we can help you decide what’s best for your project.

It typically takes us 4-8 hours to complete a standard residential scaffolding
project. A more complex brief or difficult access may take us longer to complete.

We will provide more accurate estimates at the quoting stage.

We can be ready within 24-48 hours of you accepting our quote.

When the project is complete, we can also be ready to dismantle within 24 hours.
