Is it normal for roofing companies to quote without scaffolding costs?

We did our roof about 18 months ago and it was the first building type thing we had ever done so I went a bit mad on the quotes. I had about 7 companies come and visit , and I think most of the quotes included a "ball park" figure for scaffolding. In the end the company we went for were absolutely brilliant and they added an approximate cost for the scaffolding in the first quote, and then before we went ahead we had a detailed cost. The roofer organised the scaffolding for us and we just paid the scaffolding company direct.
Our roofer wasn't overly keen to do the building work such as the chimney repairs, but he helped us get it sorted.

This might be helpful.

I have a feeling that if you don't get scaffolding from a specialist company, you need to get the scaffolding officially inspected and signed off once it is up. They should be p front about it though.

we recently had a roofing quote. the scaffold quote came from a different company (specialist scaffold comp).

We had building work which required scaffolding. The quote was sans scaffold, but they'd said it would be. They could have sorted scaffolding for us, but actually it was cheaper to sort that side ourselves. There was no problem with getting the two companies to work together vis a vis dates etc, just gave our builders the scaffolders phone number.
