This is a great price for a very nice ladder. This looks to be the new "everyday price" based on the website.

I have the 24 ft. version of this ladder that I paid $189 at Lowes after matching to Home Depot a few years ago. It's great, but a little on the heavy side. I would have preferred aluminum for weight savings and I don't plan on doing electrical work while on the ladder. Not trying to state the obvious, but this is 14 ft. in it's smallest form and weighs 60 lbs. It will likely be a little unwieldy for one person.

An excellent point. After tons of research, I got the Werner 28' Type 2 in aluminum, because it is the lightest choice. When you're extending that high, it's amazing how much the leverage works against you.

If you're not hauling shingles up (you should raise your load with a rope anyway), dealing with overhead electric, or standing on it for hours at a time, you want the lightest ladder you can get that's long enough. Don't fall into the trap of bigger is better; you don't want to end up with a ladder that you can't control without another person.

yea aluminum is great unless you are working around electrical lines. I hate these they are tough to extend solo around finished houses but 28' is sometimes required. And solo it might get away in the wind and strike an overhead feed off the transformer. good deal for general residential repair. get aluminum if the houses around you are far enough apart that overhead elec is not a problem. get fiberglass if you work as part of a 2 man crew.

There's a 24ft aluminum Rated for 225lbs on sale as well
https://www.lowes.com/pd/Werner-D...er/1115317

IMO, the perfect homeowner ladder if you weigh less than 225 and don't plan to work around electricity

They don't crumble in the heat. They get brittle if left out in the sun for long periods.

UV breaks down the fiberglass surface.

Make sure you store it inside or on an exterior wall that gets little to no sunlight.

Great deal. 28' is ideal for a two story house. Always tie off with bungee cords if getting on a roof. No Little Giant compares to this when working this high up.

I would never get on a ladder in icy winter, just me maybe. Any reason you can't use a standard roof snow rake? They normally have 1-2 extensions packed in. I only use the extension when I need to do my second story. 1 extension is what I use when doing awnings and the garage. So normally I start with both extensions and do the house roof, than go to the gargage and store the second extension, then finish my awnings and garage roof, then store it all.

After all that I snow blower or shovel whatever fell to the ground. I have no idea what you plan to use on the roof after you are on the ladder, but I do know roof rakes work best when you can get as far away from you roof/home as possible. with that said between my home and the neighbors is only about 5ft and a roof rake has been good enough.

Now that I think about it if you have a flat roof or you are planning to use this for commercial use than I suppose it will work. I would personally look else where for commercial applications where you will use this constantly. I would not skimp out on safety in any way shape and form in icy winter time when climbing a ladder. Hopefully someone else will chime in if this is the case. It may be fine if you are just getting on the flat roof and will only use it a few times per season for xx years. Multiple roofs commercial application I would buy whatever the pros use.

How long is too long? Mines been outside in the Arizona heat for almost 11 years. At least half of that on a western facing wall. Its faded a little but feels sturdy as ever. The rope is a wreck though.

Just picked up the 24' aluminum ladder. USed a $20 off $100 coupon, brought it down to $114.30

And one of my amex cards had get 10% off lowes and also double points for lowes.

So should be $102.87 for the ladder in my garage and some extra points on my card
