Scaffolding can be both an impractical, costly and unworkable option for industrial roofing.

In these scenarios, Rope Access Roofing can provide a genuine alternative that offers significant cost savings over scaffolding.

As one of the leading Rope Access Roof Repair companies in the Central Belt of Scotland, we have grown from humble beginnings to become one of the leading, recommended commercial roofers for Industrial customers in Scotland.

For over 35 years ago, we have grown, expanded and strengthened our core roofing, building maintenance and Rope Access Services (and the personnel in the company) so that we can meet the ever evolving demands of our customers.

Why Rope Access can be a better option than Scaffolding Access?

It is not so much that it is a better option than scaffolding access for roofing, more that it offers significant benefits and alternatives to scaffolding. Across Scotland, the unique sandstone architecture and the different layout of buildings for Residential, Commercial & Industrial purposes means that there are times when erecting scaffolding simply won’t work. Whether this is through limited access or not enough space to erect scaffolding, industrial roofing areas still need to be maintained and repaired. Whether this is from more historical slate industrial buildings or more modern premises, our Rope Access team can access and location on a roof with ease.

What are the cost savings of Rope Access Roofing?

The cost savings vary from site to site but to give you an explanation as to the cost savings of Rope Access, we simply need to look at the cost of scaffolding.

With scaffolding, you have the rental cost of the actual scaffolding itself, as well as the time delays of simply erecting scaffolding. The longer a project lasts, the more costly scaffolding access can be.

With Rope Access, we use the same high quality Climbing Gear that Mountain Professionals use. Apart from some minimal safety set up, we can get to work that same day on roof repairs (which can prove to be invaluable if time is of the essence).
