Included in our prices are 4 weeks’ rental, the scaffolds will be checked at regular intervals as per Health and Safety requirements and once the project is completed the scaffold will be dismantled in a timely manner. Our scaffolding is available for long or short term hire.

Building Encapsulation & Temporary Roofs

When it comes to inclement weather, a temporary roof will give you protection against the elements allowing your work to continue uninterrupted and protecting the interior of the building.

We can encapsulate your works to provide protection or containment, shielding your workforce and equipment from climate conditions and protecting the public and environment against dust and debris.

Crash Decks

We install crash decks, these are high up on HSE hierarchy of systems to use. Our customers use them for a variety of projects ranging from light duty projects such as providing access for painting to the maximum load projects such as internal blockwork.

Crash decks provide access, edge protection and allows for installation of floorings joists and roof trusses to internal areas whilst providing a safe working environment to contractors and employees.

Simon Lewis Director / Owner

I am the owner of Area Scaffolding Ltd and also a Director of Tredwell Developments Ltd, I have over 25 years experience within the construction industry. My knowledge and understanding of the building trade gives me first-hand experience of scaffolding services and the importance of time constraints, reliability, efficiency and health & safety.

Tredwell is a company which has been trading 12 years and it has gone from strength to strength building new homes and developing properties around Norfolk and Suffolk. However, when it came to scaffolding I found myself getting let down constantly and this in turn would sabotage my works schedule. This is why I started Area Scaffolding and why one of my main goals will always be reliability and good customer relations.

I have lived locally all my life and have developed many strong relationships both personal and professional. I am passionate about Rugby, I am a committee member and sponsor at Lowestoft & Yarmouth Rugby Club where I have in the past played and coached at junior level. I believe in our community and I help to support it by employing local people and using local businesses, this is very important to me.


Caring about your image or what people think of you can be regarded in some circles as being vain. We however care very much what people think of us. What follows is a selection of feedback from our valued customers and partners.

"I would highly recommend them to anyone"

Area Scaffolding Ltd work with excellent professionalism, quality workmanship and health and safety. From the first phone call to the completion of the contract to birdcage the Nissan showroom their staff and service given is second to none.

We found their assistance, promptness, consideration and politeness a delight. I would highly recommend them to anyone. The company is always a pleasure to deal with and I cannot rate the team high enough.

"A big thank you to all at Area Scaffolding"

We had two properties that were quite badly damaged in storm Doris recently. The 'Area Boys' visited the same day making both sites safe and were back first thing the next morning to erect scaffolding and complete necessary roof repairs.

Insurance companies, landlords and tenants were all very happy with the efficiency, quality and service provided by Area Scaffolding. Thank you!

Becky Clement, Castle Homes Lettings Ltd.

" In my experience of scaffolding companies, these are rare things!"

The RAMS were sent through without having to ask and it was of high quality with all safety concerns very well considered. The team were very prompt in arriving and completed the build and dismantle of the tower quickly. The tower was exactly as required enabling us to complete our work efficiently and safely.

Even putting on boot covers without being asked (probably a first) before coming into the offices.

We would love to have your experience of working with us here!
