How to Choose an Extension Ladder
An extension ladder is a versatile, almost indispensable, tool for most homeowners. If you're comfortable on a ladder, you'll quickly recoup its cost by cleaning your own gutters, painting your own home, hanging Christmas lights and completing innumerable other repairs around the house. Choose a ladder based on the size of your home and your needs. Extension ladders come in different lengths and duty ratings in both aluminum and fiberglass models. Ladders can also be accessorized to make them safer, reach tricky spots or work safely on a roof.
