Summer is well underway and fall is approaching fast, so it’s time to really get going on your household projects. We’ve compiled a list of seven projects to do this weekend using your telescoping ladder. From indoor to outdoor, these activities are just easier to do with a telescoping ladder, as opposed to a traditional adjustable ladder. Telescoping ladders are portable, versatile, easier to carry, lightweight, and easier to store. These seven projects are just the beginning of what you can do with your ladder, this weekend or any other weekend.
1. Paint your house. Depending on the size of your painting project, any number of Xtend+Climb telescoping ladders can make your job easier. Whether you’re painting the guest bedroom and just need a little boost, or you’re tackling the whole loft, using a telescoping ladder gives you the reach you need while still affording you a lightweight ladder that is easy to move from room to room.
2. Clean the gutters. Clogged gutters can lead to expensive repairs. Sometimes just getting the ladder out of the garage keeps you from doing the jobs that need to get done. Telescoping ladders are easy to store, and easy to transport. That means you have one less reason to avoid this chore!
3. Wash the windows. Renters, have you ever wondered what more you could have done to get that cleaning deposit back? Clean windows can make a huge difference in making a space seem brighter and cleaner, so next time you’re doing a move-out clean, don’t forget this task. Windows may be just out of reach, so having a telescoping ladder in the closet is a great tool for the job. Added bonus: a telescoping ladder doesn’t take up space once it’s folded up, so you can fold it down and stow it in the trunk of your car, a closet, or even under the bed when you’re done.
4. Change a lightbulb. Lightbulbs always seem to go out at the most inconvenient times. Telescoping ladders make it easy to replace ceiling bulbs quickly and without much fuss. Extend and lock the ladder to the height you need, screw in the new lightbulb, and collapse the ladder and stow it in a closet or under the bed. No muss, no fuss.
5. Hang a picture. Are you going to get a traditional extension ladder out of the garage just to hang a picture? Probably not. But will you grab a telescoping ladder out of the hallway closet for this task? Absolutely! Telescoping ladders extend and lock by the foot, so you only need to extend it as high as you need it. An adjustable telescoping ladder is easy to use and easy to keep nearby, making hanging pictures a much quicker weekend task.
6. Insulate your attic. If you’ve been putting this task off because the thought of lugging a ladder up to the attic seemed like more trouble than it was worth, a telescoping ladder can solve your problem. Take the 750P telescoping ladder, for example: this ladder folds down to 27 inches when fully closed. That means that you can carry the ladder under one arm while climbing up to the attic. Once again, no more excuses!
7. Clean the tops of your kitchen cabinets. Or, the top of your armoire, the tops of the storage cabinets in your garage…basically, anywhere you aren’t normally tall enough to see the grunge, dust, and grease that gathers over time on an untouched surface. Telescoping ladders can extend tall enough to get you up to clean these hard-to-reach areas of the house.
