 Types of Temporary Roofs
and Scaffolding Supply

The ideal temporary roof for your project depends on many factors, including size, height, budget, and anticipated weather conditions. At Skyhigh Scaffolding Liverpool, based in Liverpool, we can provide any of the following high-quality temporary roofing solutions:

 Full Scaffold Crash Decks

For maximum strength and weather protection, a full scaffold crash deck involves a scaffolding structure erected around the perimeter and scaffolded girders spanning across to create a platform, fully boarded out with plywood or metal sheets. Our scaffolding erectors offer this robust solution for total overhead protection.

Partial Scaffold Crash Decks

A lighter option, partial crash decks provide a perimeter scaffolding frame with horizontal beams and purlins in Cheshire and Macclesfield. These support clear or opaque polythene or PVC sheets stretched across the roof area. Partial decks allow good light transmission while providing water run-off protection.

Truss Roofs

Trusses provide an economical roofing solution for smaller areas like a conservatory. Traditionally made of timber, modern trusses feature light metal frames spanned with polythene, PVC, or mesh. We install high-quality trusses able to carry specified design loads.


Free-standing canopies provide cover for external areas and entrances in Manchester. Fabric canopies are commonly used, providing shelter while allowing air circulation. We install robust, wind-resistant structures secured using scaffolding or specially constructed frames.

Other Bespoke Solutions

We can engineer bespoke temporary roofing to meet your exact specifications. If a standard solution isn’t suitable, our technical team will design and install a custom temporary roof structure based on your requirements in locations like St Helens or net services in areas like Preston.

Suspended Covers

For internal atria or spaces with access below, we can install suspended fabric roof covers. Waterproof PVC fabrics are suspended from wires or purpose-installed temporary structures across the area. Suspended covers prevent water ingress while maintaining light in areas like Southport and Wigan.

Planning Your Project

The first step in planning a temporary roof or temporary repair installation in Liverpool is to arrange a site survey. As one of the leading providers of scaffolding service in Liverpool, our professional scaffolding team will visit to assess the parameters and challenges of your specific project. We’ll measure the area to be covered, inspecting things like chimney positions, and assess the surrounding environment.

Installation Process

Once your professional scaffolding and temporary roofing project is planned, our team will undertake installation efficiently and safely, ensuring all requirements are met. The key stages include:

  • Prepare the Site

    We’ll ensure the site is ready for installation, with any obstructions like neighbouring structures removed and the area cleared and levelled where the roof structure will stand.

  • Deliver Materials and Equipment

    Our logistics team will deliver all necessary scaffolding in Liverpool, roofing materials, and tools to your site. We utilise our extensive resources to mobilise quickly.

  • Erect the Roof Structure

    Experienced scaffolding crews will construct the temporary roof framework according to the agreed design. For full crash decks, this means installing a perimeter scaffold and roof beams across the area.

  • Add Decking and Waterproof Layer

    With the underlying structure complete, we’ll install the decking substrate (typically plywood or metal sheeting) and then overlay the waterproof membrane, sealing and integrating with the scaffolding frame.

  •  Install Covers (For Partial Decks)

    For partial crash decks, the final step involves securely installing the polythene, PVC, or mesh sheets over the roof area and anchoring tightly.

  • Inspect and Test

    Once installation is finished, we’ll conduct rigorous checks and testing through a Checkatrade-verified process to ensure your temporary roof meets required standards before handover. This ensures everything is 100% safe and weatherproof.
