We are domestic scaffolding and commercial scaffolding specialists with an impeccable safety record.
Which areas do you cover?
We are proud to operate as one of the region’s most reputable scaffolding companies, and one that offers its customers unprecedented reach. Our scaffolding contractors cover a 30-mile radius of Mitcham. We can provide you with scaffolding services in Epsom, South London or Surrey, and on a responsive basis to cover any emergency needs you might have.
Wherever you are, our scaffolding contractors can build towers, framework and temporary roofs to any specification.
Which scaffolding systems can you build?
LEK Scaffolding works with all system types to meet the needs of a varied domestic and commercial customer base. Our scaffolding services include the supply, construction and dismantling of mobile scaffold towers, single and double scaffolding, suspended scaffolding, access scaffolds, bird cage scaffolding and, of course, temporary roofs.
We design a suitable system around the demands of the project and always advise you on which type of scaffolding works best.
Do I need a permit to have scaffolding erected?
Our scaffolding contractors can erect some structures without the need for a permit, but you will need to make an application for one if the build sits over a public footpath or a road. Scaffolding companies cannot construct a tower without the required permit. We can provide you with help, assistance and practical advice on how to obtain one.
In most cases, you will need to contact the local authority for Epsom to obtain the required permit.
Are your scaffolding contractors qualified?
Yes. All operatives in our team have the training and experience needed to provide safe scaffolding services to a desired specification. We have more than 20 years of trade experience and our team has CISRS qualifications. Our company is also a proud member of established, industry-leading organisations, including CHAS and Constructionline.
We think you’ll struggle to find other scaffolding companies in our region to match our credentials or our approach to customer care.
Do you have company insurance?
Yes. LEK Scaffolding has obtained all relevant policies to erect scaffolding and temporary roofs in a safe, responsible manner. We have £10m of public liability insurance and £5m of employer liability insurance. This is significant in terms of coverage and higher than the standard insurance levels held by other scaffolding companies in the Epsom area.
Use our scaffolding contractors with confidence knowing LEK has all eventualities covered, but still has an impeccable record for site safety.
Can’t I just use a ladder for smaller domestic jobs?
Working at height comes with serious risks so, for most project types, scaffolding services provide you with a more stable, safer base to work on. Scaffolding also allows any tradesmen you use to move freely around a property which helps in completing the project sooner. Scaffolding companies also have insurance in place to cover unforeseen circumstances.
We strongly advise that you never work at height on a ladder and only use one for accessing a safe standing area.
Do you offer an emergency callout service?
Yes. Our scaffolding contractors have 24/7 availability and can respond to emergency callouts in Epsom quickly. Should you require emergency scaffolding services outside of our normal working hours, please call us on 07577 475685. We can build scaffolding structures or temporary roofs to help you cope with urgent and worrying situations.
We’re here to help when other scaffolding companies can’t, and LEK promises to always deliver a timely, affordable solution.
Can I move scaffolding to different parts of a building?
This depends on the type of scaffolding used. You can’t move a static structure, but our scaffolding contractors can dismantle and erect over different areas of a site if needed. Wheeled towers give you a manoeuvrable system and this form of mobile scaffolding has castor wheels fitted so you can move the structure as and when you need to.
Our scaffolding services give customers in Epsom a versatile range of choices that some of our competitors can only aspire to.
