Step ladders are extra helpful to have around when needing to make overhead updates and repairs in and around your home. They are useful for many occasions including painting your rooms, cleaning gutters or even hanging holiday decorations. Ace has a great selection of step ladders in the material you prefer.
Most step ladders come in one of three materials – wood, fiberglass or aluminum, and each type of ladder has its own advantages. Wooden ladders tend to be heavier and can eventually wear out when exposed to the elements over a long period of time, but are unlikely to conduct electricity if you are working near wires or anywhere electrical currents are near. Fiberglass ladders are also heavier and resist electricity, but can withstand weathering overtime.
If you won’t be using your step ladder near power lines or electrical currents and portability is a priority, aluminum ladders are a convenient option. They weigh less than their wooden and fiberglass counterparts and can last a lifetime.
When not in use, most step ladders are also folding ladders and can be easily stored in your garage or storage shed. For more information on step ladders visit an expert at your local Ace or check out our ladders guide.
