Our Scaffolding Services


Domestic Scaffolding


Homeowners in Purley, Balham, Clapham and Streatham can depend on scaffolding companies to help them carry out a variety of jobs, following a site survey and thorough risk assessment of their property. From here, scaffolding contractors recommend the ideal type of structure suited to the property and the purpose of the project, without any hazards or obstacles getting in the way.


The scaffolding erectors at Urban Scaffolding assist domestic clients with the following work:


• Home Refurbishments

• Loft Conversions

• Property Extensions

• Exterior Restorations

• Roof Maintenance

• Chimney Repairs


Temporary Roofing Structures


Scaffolding contractors ensure your Purley, Balham, Clapham and Streatham properties are protected with temporary roofs. These are commonly made from reinforced sheet materials, such as tin, corrugated iron or polyethylene. Scaffolding erectors secure temporary roofs to scaffolding frames, which offer privacy and prevent dust, weather and environmental damage. Depending on how long these are required, scaffolding companies schedule regular inspections for roofing structures.


Different Types of Raking Shores


Purley, Balham, Clapham and Streatham clients often use a range of dead, flying and raking shores, as part of commercial scaffolding services. Shores are set up by scaffolding erectors to support construction projects at greater heights and to reinforce the security of scaffolding platforms.


• Flying Shores – Scaffolding structures which support shared or party walls for construction work involving an intermediate structure being demolished and rebuilt

• Dead Shores – Vertical scaffolding used to maintain the integrity of walls, roofs and floors, while lower walls are removed for renovation jobs

• Raking Shores – Scaffolding services which are like dead shores; however, these offer lateral support for wall restorations


Birdcage Scaffolding


Scaffolding erectors fit vertical standards, with horizontal ledgers, transoms and platforms to form birdcage scaffolding. The scaffolding contractors at Urban Scaffolding commonly provide birdcage scaffolding services for projects taking place at single storey properties in Purley, Balham, Clapham, Streatham and the surrounding areas. These can be single or multi-level birdcage frames, which are enclosed once they have been assembled. Birdcage scaffolding is suited to re-roofing, painting, plastering and decorating jobs, plus scaffolding companies like us design birdcages for interior ceiling restorations.


Cantilever Scaffolding


Scaffolding contractors suggest cantilever frames to work around any ground obstacles highlighted during site surveys. This type of scaffolding is attached to your Purley, Balham, Clapham or Streatham property, which securely hangs at an angle without support from a standard. Due to its suspended design, cantilever scaffolding is intended for lightweight jobs with minimal crew, materials and tools.


Hoist Towers


Larger construction sites across Purley, Balham, Clapham, Streatham, Surrey and London require means to transfer materials and tools throughout scaffolding structures. Scaffolding companies like us enable commercial tradesmen to carry out construction and maintenance work in a safe and efficient manner. When assembling hoist towers at great heights, scaffolding erectors ensure the UK health and safety standards are adhered to.
