Scaffolding Services

When it comes to pigeons under panels, one of the first questions you will be asked is about access. It is vital to make sure that the company you choose to pigeon, squirrel, or jackdaw proof your solar panels are well-versed in their health and safety and can provide safe access for their teams. You may think that this is something that you do not need to worry about however, if a company is shown to have unsafe practices while working on your property, you may be more liable than you think!

Do you have to use scaffolding to pigeon proof solar panels?

We always have to use scaffolding on panels that are tricky to reach. This includes properties that have conservatories on the side of the property where the solar panels are. Or if the roof in too steep to work on safely. We can assess over the telephone whether or not we will need scaffolding to access your solar panels safely. So if you have pigeon problems, call today on 0800 088 6392!

The people who fitted my solar panels didn't use scaffolding - why do you?

When they fitted the solar panels, they did not need to reach the very front of the solar panels, so some companies didn’t use scaffolding to cut down on their costs and make more profit. When we install the solar panel pigeon protection mesh, we make sure to fit it the entire way around the solar panels. We don’t want the birds to be able to squeeze through any gaps on any sides of the solar panels. Therefore, we have to be able to safely reach the very front of the panels. If you have a conservatory underneath the solar panels for example, then we might need to use scaffolding to reach the front edge as we cannot use ladders. To see whether your property needs scaffolding, please call us on 0800 088 6392!

Does scaffolding cost more?

Scaffolded pigeon protection work will always cost more however, as we work with our own scaffolding division, we are able to keep the costs down as much as possible. In this way, we find that we are the most cost effective, and safest company who complete the solar panel pigeon protection work.

How long will the scaffolding be up for?

The scaffolding we use for bird proofing, in the majority of cases, is taken down the same day we put it up. If you want the scaffolding up for longer to use for your own purposes then we are always happy to accommodate that.

Can I use your scaffolding for other purposes while it is up?

If you are planning to have work completed on your roof or a new lick of paint to be applied to the outside of your house we can definitely help you! We would need to know in advance what you would be using the scaffolding for so that we can make any modifications as necessary. We would also need to know how long you would need the scaffolding for. After that, we are happy to provide full handover certificates to you and the people who will be working on the scaffolding. Then when you are finished with the scaffolding, just give us a call and we will book you in to take it down at your convenience!

Are you insured and qualified?

Yes! We make sure that we are insured for both the pigeon protection work and for the scaffolding as well. Everyone that we employee to scaffold your property will be fully qualified and we make sure that they keep up to date with all the latest health and safety requirements, as do our mesh installation technicians.

In this industry, the question of “What is a safe way to gain access to tricky to reach solar panels?" is frequently asked. We believe the only truly safe way to work on hard to reach solar panels is to use scaffolding. We have heard in the past of some companies that offer pigeon mesh installation using careless, and in some cases downright dangerous methods to access solar panels. (Fancy dangling off of a cherry picker? We certainly don’t!!) These methods, while also illegal, can, if they go wrong, not only cause severe injuries to the person who has been coerced into carrying them out, it also could cause damage to your solar panels, your roof, and any structures in that person’s path, such as glass roofed conservatories. So don’t concern yourself with sketchy access equipment, call Direct Solar Care today for all your scaffolded bird proofing needs and we will be more than happy to give you a free, no obligation quote, and get you on the path to becoming pigeon and pest free!
