Ladders

I'd like to hear from some of you about your choice of ladder(s) primarily to clean and wax the Redwood and TV. We'll be spending the winter in Arizona and want to take our time with cleaning and waxing the outside. I'm not sure about how big, and what type of ladder will fit the bill.

Thanks,

Jim

I use a Little Giant imitation from Harbor Freight Tools, it adjust in height & also unfolds to an extension ladder & stores nicely under the toolbox in my truck. I can reach everything but the steep arch of the front cap, I have to get to it from the roof.
Little Giant - $300+, Harbor Freight - $110+/- on sale with coupon.

Chuck, I looked at that ladder also, but only rated at 225lbs & I'm 40+lbs beyond that & I don't heal as quickly as I used to.

I use this one all the time and store it in the front storage area where the batteries are located.

I use a little giant knock off from Lowes (cheap) extends to 10' just enough to wax everything. Have mits on one end and a cut up a noodle and wrapped pieces around the top rung and supports, held on with quick ties. Fits snugly against the basement wall. To get to the roof I place it against the dining slide step side and go up by using the slideout as a step.

I use this one. It is rated at 225 and I am 75# over and have not had any issues. To wax the cap, I cut a noodle and slip it on the frame.
