Scaffolding contracting is in demand in any economic climate especially in major metropolitan areas that have very tall buildings. These businesses do have very high barriers to entry given the fact that there are a number of licenses that are required in order to operate as a licensed scaffolding contractor. Any time maintenance or repair that needs to be done to a large building is required, a scaffolding contractors always called to render the services. As such, these businesses are generally able to remain profitable and cash flow positive even during times of economic recession. These businesses generate very high gross margins from their services including installation of the scaffolding, rental the scaffolding, and related demolition revenues. These businesses do have high startup cost given the substantial amount of skilled labor as well as the significant amount of equipment that is needed to render the services. These businesses typically have started cost that range anywhere from $250,000 to $750,000 depending on the number of people involved and the location of the business. A vast majority of these businesses commence operations near or within major metropolitan areas that have a substantial number of tall residential and commercial buildings. The gross margins generated by these businesses typically ranges from 75% to 85% depending on what is considered part of cost of goods sold.

A scaffolding contractor business plan should also be developed especially if the entrepreneur is going to be seeking startup capital or expansion capital from a financial institution, credit union, or private investor. These businesses usually are required to submit a three year profit and loss statement, capital analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. The industry research section of the business plan should showcase the fact that these companies generate about $4 billion revenue per year and provide job to about 30,000 people. At any given time there are about 20,000 scaffolding contractors that operate within the United States. A demographic analysis is typically not needed for this type of business given that it is used exclusively by real estate developers, general contractors, architectural firms, and related construction entities. A competitive analysis should be included among major scaffolding contractors that typically operate within 100 mile radius of the company’s planned location.

A scaffolding contractor SWOT analysis is frequently produced as well in conjunction with both a business plan and marketing plan. As it relates to strengths, scaffolding contractors are always able to produce high gross margins from their services in most economic climates. The barriers to entry are high.

For weaknesses, there are a substantial number of liabilities that are associated with a scaffolding contracting business. These businesses can easily cause substantial injury not only to workers but also to passersby as well. As such, there needs to be a number of very large scale and liability insurance policies on hand in the event that an accident occurs.

For opportunities, most scaffolding contracting businesses expand by simply establishing locations in additional metropolitan area markets. This is really the only way these companies expand is by offering a number of other service lines as part of their overall menu.

For threats, major economic recession sessions – including those that have very high interest rates – can have a negative impact on scaffolding contractors given that fewer new constructions will be made. However, as maintenance on many major commercial and residential buildings are required at all times – these businesses are generally able to remain profitable and cash flow positive. There is nothing about this industry is expected the change in the next 20 years.

A scaffolding contractor marketing plan is also produced in order to ensure that the business can receive immediate income at the onset of operations. Foremost, many scaffolding contractors will develop ongoing and contractually based relationships with property management firms, real estate developers, general contractors, architectural firms, as well as construction management companies. This ensures that the business always has a steady stream of income from the onset of operations. Many people that start their own scaffolding contracting business have already been involved with the construction industry for many years before they decide to strike out on their own. As such, the owner-operator can easily call upon existing contacts in order to ensure that revenues will be generated once the business is ready to launch.

A presence online is also needed for most scaffolding contracting business although this can be kept somewhat on the lighter side of things given the fact that most revenues come from established relationships with the affirmation entities. These days it is required of a website just as people are going to want to see that the business has a strong degree of legitimacy.

Scaffolding will always be needed and this is going to be a business that a skilled entrepreneur who has extensive experience in construction and construction management can operate as a lucrative business. There is nothing major about this industry that is expected to change moving forward within the next 10 to 20 years. As buildings get older, especially in major metropolitan areas like New York, Miami, San Francisco, Chicago, and related major metropolitan areas – the demand for scaffolding contracting will increase moderately. As such, this is a very strong business for an individual that is skilled within this field.
