Home improvement is a great way to spice things up and save some money!
There are so many different ladders out there, from step ladders to roof ladders, and it can be difficult to know which ladders to use for which job. We have just the right thing for you. We have put together this helpful guide to show you which ladders can be used for which household chores. Hopefully this will inspire you to climb, clean, and remodel your home.
Clean windows and gutters
Cleaning the exterior of the home is a task that most homeowners avoid. It's messy, time consuming, and without the right equipment it can also be quite dangerous. However, if you are tired of paying someone to clean your home, it may be time to invest in a suitable ladder for the job. The type of ladder you need will depend on the height of your home. If you live in a one-story bungalow, you probably only need one Stepladder. For larger, two- or three-story homes, you may need to consider one Extension ladder for additional range. Most extension ladders are made up of two or three sections, which means they can reach heights of over 10 meters! When using an extension ladder, it is important that you keep the ladder at a safe angle to avoid accidental slips or falls. As a rule of thumb, for every 4 feet of vertical height, you should move your extension ladder 1 foot away from your home.
Replace or clean roof tiles
Climbing the roof is a scary thought for most people, especially when all you have is a creaky old ladder set and not much else to support you. Well, for those of you who want to get on the roof to clean or replace your roof tiles, it might be worth investing in a dedicated roof Roof ladder. These ladders are designed with a hook edge that provides additional support over the hump of your roof. Here's how to use a roof ladder safely.
Painting and decorating
One of the easiest ways to freshen up your home is to repaint it. For example, switching from a dark to a light color can really change the feel of the entire room in no time. This is also a great way to make your home look bright and clean before you hit it on the market. If you've ever tried painting or decorating a house, you know the areas near the ceiling can be difficult to get to unless you are armed with a trustworthy ladder. For painting and decorating work, we recommend investing in a lightweight aluminum stepladder (which can be easily moved around the house) or a Working platform for additional work area. Having a little extra space for your paint can, brush, and cup of tea can take the strain off your arms and get your job done quickly.
Hopefully, you will have a better understanding of the types of jobs you can do with different ladders around your home. Once you have the right gear, you'll be amazed at how much you can do at home!
