Three Common Construction Jobs Made Easier with Scaffolding

Ladders are great, useful tools, but they do have limitations. For instance, it’s difficult to maneuver on them, they allow for a very limited range of motion, and they’re useless on uneven ground. That’s why we recommend scaffolding for these three common construction jobs:

  1. Painting: You might be able to get away with using a ladder in most rooms, but what about staircases, especially those with extremely high ceilings? Scaffolding eliminates this problem, because both of its sides are adjustable and can therefore create a safe, smooth surface for workers, even on staircases. This same adjustability is also what makes scaffolding so useful when you’re painting the exterior of a home. After all, the ground is almost always at least slightly uneven.
  2. Installing Drywall: If you’re going to be renovating or building a house, then installing drywall is unavoidable. It’s also a cumbersome, awkward task, since industry-standard drywall is eight feet by four feet and most homes built after 1995 have ceilings that are either nine or ten feet high. This means that installing drywall requires some serious wrangling—wrangling that you simply cannot do on a ladder.
  3. Installing or Applying Any Kind of Exterior House Covering: Whether you’re slapping on stucco or reattaching vinyl siding, you’re going to need scaffolding. Not only will scaffolding help you maintain much-needed balance, but it will also give you more room to maneuver and to carry equipment.

If you’ve got a job that requires scaffolding, then contact A-1 Equipment Rental Center. A-1 Equipment can rent you safe, effective scaffolding, as well as other equipment rentals and tool rentals of all kinds—not to mention tractor rentals and truck rentals!

Three Ways a Tractor Rental Can Simplify Your Construction Project

Construction projects can be tough if you don’t have adequate equipment. Some people try and tackle major projects with equipment that can’t stand up to the task. Don’t be one of those people. Rent a tractor and get the job done quickly!

Let's take a look at how a tractor rental can simplify your construction project.


If you are adding an addition to your home or redoing the driveway, then you will need to excavate hundreds of cubic square feet of dirt.  If you were to do this without a tractor, then it would require days of hard labor, which is a burden on your time and on your back. A truck rental company can simplify your project and reduce labor.  


Tractor rentals save you time and sweat. Let the tractor do the heavy lifting, while you sit back and watch your project come together. Your construction project will be easier to complete with the various attachments you can include in your equipment rental package. These add-ons are designed to help you execute your construction project in a fraction of the time.


Any time your project takes longer than you originally planned will be reflected in your budget. A tractor rental allows you to quickly complete your project so that you can stay on your projected timeline. Don’t buy a tractor that you’ll probably only need for one or two projects. Instead, rent a tractor and save thousands of dollars.

At A-1 Rental Center, we have the tractors you need to get your construction project done efficiently, properly, and affordably. We also have affordable party rental equipment to suit your needs for any upcoming shindig.

Five Construction Tools You're Better off Renting than Buying

There are some construction tools that aren't worth buying if you have an equipment rental store nearby.  Even a project that's going to take a few weeks to complete won't warrant spending hundreds of dollars on all of the equipment you'll need to get the job done.

Here are five construction tools you're better off renting than buying.


Anytime your construction project requires excavating, you'll maximize your efficiency by renting a tractor.  Unless you need a tractor for commercial use, you don’t need to buy a tractor. Renting a tractor will be more beneficial for small projects.

Tile Saw

A tile saw is crucial to your new tile flooring project, but such a specialized saw is not worth buying for one project. Save a few hundred dollars by renting this tool.

Concrete Troweling Machine

You wouldn’t want to buy a concrete troweling machine if you only need to repave the driveway. Concrete tool rentals are especially handy for single jobs because you don’t need to store the troweling machine once your job is complete. And, tool rental companies allow you to rent tools for as long as you need in order to get the job done.

Airless Paint Sprayer

Painting can be a hassle, especially if you’re using a pan and roller. An airless paint sprayer can speed up the time it takes to paint a room or even several rooms. Once again, don’t bother purchasing this tool. Tool rental companies offer this tool all year long. If you need to touch up the paint at some point, you can rent the airless paint sprayer again. 

Flooring Nailer

flooring nailer is another good tool to rent.  Anytime you're looking for a highly specialized tool, you'll save money by renting the tool.
