    I am currently trying to get someone to erect a tin-hat over my 9x11*9 house.

    Its not easy knowing where to go - lots of companies out there but a lot are either recently formed or look very dodgy. Any tips of choosing a good company?

    Payment wise, what is the normal payment profile for a scaffolding job? I guess they want 100% on erection but is the the normal way in the scaffolding world?

    We only pay once the scaffold has been struck.

    The cheapest full canopy scaffold price we had recently was £2500. For the same job the customer was quoted £5k.

    I couldn't get anything in Oxford for under £4k.
    I pay when struck too, but then I've been using the same guy for over 15 years now. As a one off customer I would expect you to pay on erection. Usually priced for erection striking and a set number of weeks with extra weeks charged at a percentage of the price.
