About Extension Ladders

As opposed to a step ladder that only brings you a few inches off the ground, an extension ladder allows you to reach heights of more than 10 feet, making it the perfect tool for high-up tasks around your home. An extension ladder can help you tackle roof repair and even tasks inside the home with ease. 

Extension Ladders for Home Use

Sometimes, you need more reach than a standard ladder can provide. That’s where an extension ladder comes in. Extension ladders are easy to store, transport, and extend far enough to reach the desired height. They are great for a wide range of tasks, from cleaning the gutters or trimming trees, or they can be used at their base height for lower projects like hanging a picture or putting up Christmas lights.

Buying Guide to Extension Ladders

When purchasing an extension ladder, there are several factors you need to consider, such as length, weight capacity, if you will need accessories to complete your job and materials.


The number one consideration to think about when purchasing a ladder is its overall length. The advertised height of a ladder is its height when it’s fully extended. However, extension ladders are adjustable, so you can usually set them at one-inch increments starting at half the ladder’s height.


We sell the following two ladder classes, each of which has different uses:
  1. Type IAA—This type is designed to hold up to 375 pounds.
  2. Type IA—This is an industrial-grade ladder that holds up to 300 pounds.


Extension ladders are either made of aluminum or fiberglass. Fiberglass ladders are usually stronger than aluminum extension ladders, but they aren’t as light and easy to move from place to place. Fiberglass extension ladders are also typically better for heavy-duty projects because of their durability.


As extension ladders are great for reaching projects that are higher up and typically lean against your home, there is a chance of injury or damage that can happen to your home. To prevent injuries or damage, you can buy ladder accessories like stabilizers, ladder mitts, and roof hooks.

Product FAQ's

Any time you use an extension ladder, ensure that the ladder’s feet are secured and have a strong base. A ladder should be one-fourth the length of your ladder away from the wall it’s leaning against.

Meaning a 20 feet extension ladder can reach a maximum height of 18 to 19 ft. Also, when choosing the size of an extension ladder, you will need, keep in mind that the ladder has to be set at an angle. Consider the angle at which your ladder rests on the support wall. Following the angle rule, if you want to reach 20 feet, you have to set the ladder feet 5 ft. away from the wall of the house for safe use.

When considering the length of a 24-foot extension ladder, you must remember that the maximum extended length will be 21 feet as the section overlap by around one foot when the ladder is at its max extension. Many get confused as each side of a ladder is 12 feet long.
