    Renting scaffolding to replace five or six roof shingles


    I am thinking of replacing some roof tiles. I only need to replace about five to six shingles. Should I rent scaffolding for safety or will I be okay without it?

    "Safety is obviously always key but sometimes scaffolding isn’t always a must, some hire shops do scaffold tower hire which would be cheaper than scaffolding but given the cost of hire I’d recommend a trained professional do it as they would have appropriate ladder and cat ladder and would probably charge the same as a hire company would"

    "Hi there depending on access to the roof you should be able to get to the tiles off ladders or maybe a scaffolding tower which is cheaper cost thanks Scott"
