If you find yourself in the position where you’re going to need scaffolding erected, whether it’s for a residential, commercial or construction job. One big consideration that is probably running through your mind prior to making a decision on who to go with is the cost of the scaffolding overall.
After all, if you’ve got a large project on to properly budget you’re going to want to know how much each part of the project costs. Some people have the preconceived idea that scaffolding can end up costing a lot when that is far from the case. At the same time, if you are wanting scaffolding for a residential job you probably will want to save costs wherever you can.
Today here at Norwich Scaffolding we take a look at how much you can expect to pay for scaffolding.
How much does it cost to rent scaffolding?
When it comes to pricing how much it is to rent scaffolding you’re going to usually be quoted a rental fee per day. This can typically range from £50 to £150+ and the following factors can play a role in this:-
- The length of time that you need to rent the scaffolding for. For longer projects, as you’re going to pay a daily rate, the price of the rental will start to increase. Learn more about how long scaffolding can typically take to erect.
- Location – it might not seem like it but the location of the property you’re wanting scaffolding erecting at can play a huge role. In built-up urban areas like London, prices can be higher than in the rural countryside.
- Height – the higher up the scaffolding needs to go the more materials such as poles that are going to be and so the higher your quote will be. This also goes for the number of levels/storeys that your scaffolding is going to require.
- Restriction of public access – if you’re wanting to erect scaffolding in a public street then you will have to apply for a permit that not only takes more time but can also add costs to the overall project.
Ask the right questions
The above can play deciding roles in how much you’re going to be quoted for commercial scaffolding or domestic scaffolding across Norwich & Norfolk. However, at the same time, you’re going to want to consider a few other things.

Do they have previous reviews from clients that you can look at?
Overall does it look like they’re giving you value for money?
Now that you know the ballpark of what you should expect to pay for scaffolding you can now make a much more informed decision.
