Looking to understand the basics of temporary roof scaffolding? On this page, our scaffolding erectors will walk you through three of the most common temporary roof systems in use in the UK today. Temporary roofs are a great way to minimise delays and keep the rain off your home during crucial repairs. Our services include commercial scaffolding and domestic scaffolding options, and we offer both short- and long-term scaffold hire.
If you would like to see our work in action, we have a website gallery which hosts images of our structures on properties in the Farnham area. We have been operating in Surrey since 2005, so we have built up a strong base of satisfied clients.
Temporary roofing systems can be constructed from a variety of different materials. Our skilled team members have the expertise needed to design and build complex structures that meet your exact requirements. Here is a brief introduction to temporary roofs:
Corrugated iron roofing, also known as a ‘tin hat’, is a traditional way of keeping rainwater from infiltrating a property under construction. It consists of overlapping sheets of iron which form a watertight barrier.
This technique keeps your property dry and prevents weather delays but is also cumbersome and risky to install. The opaque sheets also result in a dark working environment. We offer tin hat roofing as part of our commercial scaffolding and domestic scaffolding packages. If you would like to find out more about our temporary roof scaffolding and other scaffold hire options, our scaffolding erectors are happy to answer any questions that you may have.
A more modern method, shrink wrap roofing involves plastic sheeting that is attached to the scaffolding. Usually in white, this translucent material allows light in while keeping out unwanted moisture and wind. It is fast and straightforward to install, and vertical sheeting is sometimes used in conjunction with tin hat roofing.
Brands such as Haki are leading the way with highly innovative temporary roof scaffolding systems that are safe and easy to erect. They require few components to assemble and can be constructed in-situ or lifted in via a crane. An additional safety measure is Haki’s rollout method, which allows the sheeting to be rolled into place from a safe position, rather than requiring scaffolding erectors to climb onto the joists.
We have a broad range of scaffold hire options alongside our temporary roof scaffolding, and our team has years of experience with domestic scaffolding and commercial scaffolding erections. We are the smart choice for builds in Farnham and the surrounding areas.
