AERIAL LIFT VS. SCAFFOLDING
Renaissance Restoration Studios uses state of the art, high reaching aerial lifts to paint and restore churches. In most cases, the rental, erection and dismantling charges of scaffolding alone cost more than painting the entire church with an aerial lift. Although on occasion it is necessary to use limited amounts of scaffolding. The overall use of an aerial lift dramatically reduces the cost of painting and restoring churches. Don't be fooled by the imitators! We are the original Renaissance Restoration Studios Inc., the preemient church painting and ecclesiastical art restoration studio. There is no church too high for us to reach and no artwork too difficult to restore.
1. The cost of the total project is reduced significantly because there is no third party involved in the scaffolding rental, erection, or dismantling process.
2. Easily enters a church passing through a standard single 36-inch doorway.
3. The aerial lift is only 19'6" in length.
4. Can be set up and taken down and moved in less than 5 minutes or put in and taken out of a church the same day.
5. Overall weight is low compared to large amounts of scaffolding.
6. Can be operated by as few as two workmen thus cutting cost.
7. Has great versatility of motion and height and easy maneuverability.
8. Runs on rechargeable batteries. There are no dangerous gasoline powered engines or fumes unlike the makeshift homemade booms other contractors use.
9. The lift is self-propelled and moves on rubber tires with an equal weight distribution outrigger system. It will not damage expensive flooring or woodwork.
10. Using an aerial lift makes the working church atmosphere more pleasant and professional with no visual obstructions.
1. The cost of scaffolding alone from rental with erection and dismantling charges is usually more than the cost of painting the entire church with an aerial lift.
2. Large and bulky usually causing damage to the building upon entering and exiting.
3. Drastically reduces available seating space and many times cuts off key areas in churches because of its shape and size.
4. Large-scale scaffolding is usually rented for long periods of time. The erection and dismantling is a longer and more disruptive process.
5. The weight of large amounts of scaffolding is great and may be dangerous for older structures to support.
6. Erection and dismantling is an inconvenient, time-consuming, and labor-intensive process.
7. Once the scaffolding is erected it is stagnant with no maneuverability.
8. The risk of injury is greatly increased with scaffolding due to possible falling debris and blocked exit pathways.
9. Scaffolding is bulky, heavy, and inconvenient. It generally runs a much greater risk of damaging pews and floors during the erection and dismantling process.
10. Scaffolding is disruptive and aesthetically unpleasant to the general public.
