Despite another cold front, in a few short weeks the rain will let up and we’ll be reminded of all those DIY projects we meant to finish before winter. By then those damaged roof tiles, the peeling paint and hanging wires may be more of an eye-sore or a safety hazard. Home maintenance itself can be hazardous without the right equipment. We all know of friends, and innocent bystanders, who’ve landed at the bottom of an unsteady ladder. It goes without saying, investing in scaffolding for your home maintenance or renovations will guarantee a safer, smoother finish.
Getting the Height Right
Every house needs a ladder to access those hard-to-reach places. Ladders are perfect for changing a lightbulb, fixing a window or getting your cat out the tree, but less so for projects that involve greater heights for longer periods. If you’re planning to repair your roof after a storm or to plaster and paint a weathered wall, Self-lock scaffolding will provide a secure platform to work on at any height. No more over-reaching and straining for hours to get the job done. You can stand comfortably on a Self-lock hook on board, erected with a railing to ensure your safety. What’s more, there’s enough space to keep all of your equipment at hand. No more climbing up and down or needing someone to pass you tools. Having your own scaffolding tower means you can work comfortably at your own pace, at any height.
Simple Assembly and Storage
South End Scaffolding manufactures Self-lock frames and all the accessories needed to erect your scaffolding tower. You may see scaffolding up at construction sites and assume it would be too cumbersome to erect, dismantle and store at home. This, however, is the benefit of Self-lock scaffolding and the reason why so many homeowners invest in a tower for their DIY projects. These towers are quick and easy to erect. They offer a sturdy, self-locking frame that requires minimum effort to assemble. Once your project is complete, simply dismantle the lightweight frame and store it for next time.
