If you are doing exterior painting on your house and want to do a thorough job, then scaffolding is essential. Not to say you can’t do it from ladders, it is just a lot easier, not to mention safer, when extensive repairs and preparation of surfaces are necessary. Particularly with the restoration of older or period buildings.
It costs quite a considerable amount of money to erect scaffolding, but when you consider the time it saves to get the work done, and the ease of access to the areas that really need work. You will ultimately get your money back because a properly prepared and executed paint job will stand the test of time much more effectively in the long run.
