Pool Construction Tips

Hi, I'm Mandy. If you're looking for tips on pool construction, you've come to the right place. We've just had a new pool installed and I'm full of advice! When I started on our pool I thought it would be an easy build. Boy, was I wrong. I didn't know anything about building a pool apart from the fact I wanted one. Luckily, our construction company set me straight. They helped me work out how big the pool could be and they showed me which shape would suit our yard space. They sorted out permits and even gave me advice on fencing. To find out what I learned, read through my blog. Hope it helps!

What to Look for When You Use a Scaffolding Hire for DIY Projects

by Bessie Beck

If you have several DIY projects that you need to complete, you may find that a ladder just will not work for you. This means you will need scaffolding to safely complete the projects. If you don't have a scaffolding, then you will need to use a scaffold hire for the rental. Before you do, there are a few things you need to look for. Here are those few key points and what to know about each one.

Safety Features 

The first thing to look for when you use a scaffolding hire are the safety features on the scaffolding. You need to make sure that any option you choose has the basic safety features such as locking wheels and safety rails. You also need to look for a quick safety course if you have never used scaffolding before. Most rental locations will offer some kind of safety training, even if it is brief, to show you the safety features of the scaffolding you will be renting.

Additional Fees

You need to check for additional fees and understand those fees prior to signing a scaffolding hire contract. The additional fees may pertain to how long you have the scaffolding, extended warranty options, delivery, pickup and late fees. Though these do apply to most equipment that you can get on a rental contract, the fees can vary depending on the equipment. For example, if you have used an equipment hire in the past, you may be familiar with the fees that connected to the equipment you rented at the time. These fees can change and should be noted depending on the equipment.

Warranty Coverage

One thing that many people overlook when they use a scaffolding hire is the warranty coverage. Many people view scaffolding as not being under warranty like a larger piece of equipment such as bulldozers. The truth is scaffolding should still have some sort of warranty that covers damages or replacement while you have the equipment. Make sure that your scaffolding hire is covered before you sign the contract. Also, consider what you have to cover if there are damages.

These are just a few of the things you need to look for and to know about using a scaffolding hire. If you are ready to use a scaffolding hire for your rental, contact your local provider today. They can answer questions for you and help you with any delivery details and pricing.
