Scaffolding Erectors in Godstone, East Grinstead and the South East | Barn Lifting

If you’re renovating a barn in a rural part of Surrey or West Sussex, our scaffolding erectors can offer a barn lifting service to keep outbuildings structurally safe and habitable. P.R. Jones Scaffold Hire delivers an affordable alternative to underpinning through its scaffolding hire services. You can rely on scaffolding companies like our own to provide a reassuring service with all types of barn lifting work.

So, what exactly is barn lifting?

 

The wooden floors and sills beneath barns and outbuildings rot over time. If a landowner in a rural area of East Grinstead or Godstone wants to refurbish or convert a barn into living space, they often need to replace the foundations. Scaffolding companies use towers and lifting equipment to raise barns. This gives contractors easy access to the foundations.

 

With the floors fixed and the foundations level, we then lower the barn back into its original position.

 

We have scaffolding for hire in all parts of the South East area. Our customers can also use us for barn lifting if they plan to build another storey below the existing build or need to relocate a barn to a different part of the property.

 

At P.R. Jones Scaffold Hire, barn lifting projects utilise hydraulic lifting equipment to raise the build, which we then support with timber or steel cribbing. Our scaffolding hire service is similar to shoring, where temporary props keep properties in place while builders strengthen the foundations.

 

Whereas underpinning involves excavating around your East Grinstead, Godstone or South East property, and the pouring of concrete into trenches for reinforcement, our scaffolding erectors use a system which allows for the full replacement of wooden flooring and sills. This helps in keeping the barn in as close to its original condition as possible.

The associated services and benefits of barn lifting include:

 

  • Oversite Replacements – Typically made from concrete and built across the level ground of the build, scaffolding companies provide support for structural repairs.
  • Brickwork and Footwork Replacements – Scaffolding hire equipment helps builders to replace bricks which might have deteriorated from age or from weather damage.
  • Cost-Effective Solutions – We recommend barn lifting instead of underpinning because our raising process is 100% effective and suited to more modest budgets.
  • Safe and Controlled Methods – Our scaffolding erectors manage barn lifting projects from start to finish by designing, setting up and testing all equipment.
  • Time-Efficient Service – We offer responsive scaffolding hire with a focus on safety. Our team delivers, assembles and dismantles punctually within short timeframes.

 

P.R. Jones has scaffolding for hire at the South East area’s most affordable prices and we can assist you in many different ways. We’re about more than just building and construction. Barn lifting is one of many strings to our bow, and a service that’s especially popular with our rural customers.
