Whether you are cleaning your gutters, painting a room or putting up Christmas lights for the holiday, you'll be depending upon a ladder. However, all ladders are not created equal. There are several styles to consider including single section, step-ladder, extension, telescopic and multi-function ladders.

In the tutorial Choosing the Right Type of Ladder I'll share and expand on some recommended considerations involved in selecting the right ladder as suggested by Werner Co, an industry leader in the manufacturing and distribution of ladders and climbing equipment.

    In the tutorial you will learn about:
  • Selecting the right ladder type
  • Selecting the right ladder height and reach
  • Selecting the right ladder weight capacity
  • Selecting the right amount of maneuverability
  • Ladder safety.

So please take a moment to read the tutorial and learn how to properly choose your ladder based on the features you want and the duty rating it will be required to meet, and also how to safely use your ladder around the home.
