    @KS Scaffolding - this is a great idea! I've highlighted it on the homepage, and I'll work on directing members to this thread so that people can find each other 😊

    If you go here https://community.checkatrade.com/pr...=editsignature you can also add a link to your thread on your signature - then it will show under your posts and give others more chance to find this thread.

    Hi @ToolTalk1
    thanks for that I thought it was a good idea but as of yet I have no takers on it I know people have work relationships with different companies but if you never get a quote from anyone else you never know if there is a better company out there. Feel like if I was in Norfolk I could sort work out with you but Essex is stuck in its ways well thatís how it looks or no one uses the community

    Hi, based on edge of London (Chingford) & operate in Essex.

    Ref scaffolding I guess we fit in at the Ďroof surveyí or Ďbuilding inspectioní stage just before you guys are called in.

    identifying opportunities where scaffolds will then be best utilised. Some scaffolders see drones as competition but I tend to think they are complimentary and can rapidly identify new work potential for builders, roofers, building maintenance etc.

    weíre just Ďpartí of the process and Iím always keen to collaborate.

    @KS Scaffolding
    Its always good to have a network of trusted other trades, this is very important to me.
    when I lived in Essex, I had a scaffold company I would always use. Iíd phone them up, pace the length of building - count the bricks to the soffit and an instant price would be given, backed up with paperwork.
    for me it was always about - planing my work.
    never about making money from other trades.
    good work & great customer service in effect, brings in even more work.
    yes definitely I would have given you the chance to price scaffolding when required on my job sites.
    I rarely do exterior work, only bits for existing clients. I donít take on any new clients for exteriors.
    I love doing them, but found the English weather was never on my side
