Frequently Asked Questions

How tall of a ladder do I need for a 2-story house?

A twenty-four-foot ladder is long enough to reach the eaves of most two-story houses. These ladders come in extendable options and can collapse for easy storage.

What are ladder duty ratings?

A ladder duty rating is the maximum amount of weight a ladder can safely withstand. When considering if a ladder's duty rating is high enough for a project, factor in the weight of a fully clothed person plus any tools, paint, or accessories they need to carry and go from there.

What is the OSHA standard for ladders?

OSHA requires a series of standards for ladder usage. The complete regulations layout specific rules that include:

  • Only use a ladder for its intended purpose
  • Ladder rungs, cleats, and steps must be level and uniformly spaced when the ladder is in position
  • Do not shift or move the ladder while it's in use
  • Do not carry heavy loads that could make the ladder off balance
  • Always place a ladder on a level, stable surface
