Scaffolding contractors assemble, erect, and dismantle scaffolding.

What Do Scaffolding Contractors Do?

Scaffolding refers to a temporary structure used to elevate and support workers during construction projects; scaffolding contractors are responsible for building, placing and securing this type of structure and for removing it at the completion of the project. In addition to building and breaking down scaffolds, these workers may install ladders, walkways, and handrails at construction sites to make work performed on scaffolding as safe as possible. They unload the scaffolding materials, usually rails and planks made of wood or metal, help to clear and prepare construction sites, and then assemble and install the scaffolding using hand and power tools. Once the construction job is finished, scaffolding contractors disassemble and remove the scaffolding.
