How many use that nice aluminum ladder for eavestroughs? Easy to handle compared to fiberglass, right? Cheaper, too. I could have bought 2-3 alum for the cost of my 24' fiberglass. And it is a bear to handle. But I never have to worry about a split second twist or flinch hitting a utility wire. Some may be lucky enough to work in all new areas with underground utilities, but all my houses have a least some overhead wires. Two high school kids, working for a reputable painter, were fried last summer just a couple of blocks from my house. They were moving tall alum ladder, and hit a wire. Didn't have a chance to let go, they were gone in less than a second. Be careful. Think ahead. Spend a few $$$ to be safe when you make mistakes.
