.section-background, .section-background .section-background-content, .section-background .section-background-canvas, .section-background .section-background-overlay {
    top: 0px !important;
    right: 0px !important;

What do you mean by preventing scaling? Background image tend to fill the background and crop, is that what you're wanting to prevent? What are you hoping the outcome will look like?

With CSS I would have used this code:

	background-image: url(../images/bk.jpg);
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    background-position: top center;
    padding: 0px;
    margin: 0px;

I am trying to achieve the same thing.

The image in 1920x1080 and I want it always at the top and always centered. So regardless of screen width, the image is always centered.

I ended up screwing with the CSS code for a few days until I found the desired effect.

.header {
    background-image:url('insert your link to your image here');
    background-position: top center;
  	height: 225px !important;
