    Hi,
    I'm trying to work out ballpark costs for a roofing job.

    Roughly how much should I budget for scaffolding for a Victorian 3 bed mid terrace , front and back, approx 6.5m width.

    Job is up north , tyneside.


    Thanks

    I used a company called DW(Durham)about 2 years ago, they were reliable and keenly priced.

    Give them a ring, they'll give you a free quote.

    No connection just a satisfied customer.

    Not looking for best price and recommendations at the moment, just a typical price if anyone could advise. Thanks

    The job we did was on a 22000sq/m factory so not too sure our costs would help:)

    I got them through a recommend from a local(to you)builder who uses them on domestic work. He's a tight ass so they must be reasonable.

    If you give them a ring they might give you a guesstimate over the phone, who better to get a ballpark figure off?

    True enough.

    Hopefully a Durham based scaffolder or builder will see this thread.

    In Manchester I'd expect to pay about £800

    Prob's be in the region of £400 - £600 rips. You will likely need a permit for the front elevation as well as tube protection and possibly lighting.

    There is a small town garden to front of the house.
    Will I need a permit ?

    Is a permit the same as a licence ?

    a rose by any other name :)

    According to council website .........

    Apply for a scaffolding licence

    If you wish to position a scaffold on a highway, which includes any public path, pavement or road, the person wishing to erect the scaffold must apply to the council for permission.

    Anyone erecting a scaffold or hoarding on the highway should be aware of the following requirements:

    • It is an offence to erect a scaffold on the highway without the permission of the council
    • The council may grant permission by issuing a licence with or without conditions
    • The owner of the scaffold must make sure that it is erected and maintained in accordance with safety conditions attached to the licence

    No. Not unless there is some encroachment.
