This Video Provides tips on what to Consider when Buying Extension Ladders

By Mark J. Donovan




In this video, Mark Donovan of HomeAdditionPlus.com, reviews the key features to consider when buying extension ladders.

It is important when buying extension ladders to consider height requirements, load rating, and applications.

If your extension ladder applications include working around electrical wires then buy a fiberglass extension ladder. If your applications do not include working around electrical wires then consider buying an aluminum extension ladder as it is half the weight of a fiberglass extension ladder.

Also consider your weight and the expected weight of the items you will carry on the ladder when buying an extension ladder.
