are both sections of ladder, top ten and bottom ten foot? (with how much over lap)?Because I need a min. of 18' that's with the three foot above the roof, safety requirement. do you carry a wall and or roof support brace to help keep this ladder from leaning on the gutter system?
Asked by: Ron
20' extension ladder, each section is 10' long. Also on a 20' extension ladder the maximum extended length is 17' and the maximum reach is 19'-10" (assuming the person is 5'-7" tall). You might want to bump up to the 24' extension ladder. We offer ladder stabilizers that attach to the ladder and will hold the ladder off of the building so you don't hit the gutters.

As an extension ladder, it is pretty simple and works for the purpose it is intended. We have only had it for a couple of weeks now. It has a lock on the locking mechanism to lock it in place for carry mode. My two negatives are 1. The weight - it's about 60 lbs and a little unwieldy, but that also comes with the territory of a 32 foot ladder, for what its worth this was the lightest one we could find. 2. The locking mechanisms are made of plastic. Although this may make the ladder lighter, I do wish we would have gotten one with a metal locking mechanism because I get the feeling that the plastic will wear out/break faster, whereas a metal mechanism would basically last forever. That is just my opinion and time will tell as far as the durability of the mechanism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I weigh about 250 pounds and this ladder with the stabilizer (purchased and delivered separately)... I weigh about 250 pounds and this ladder with the stabilizer (purchased and delivered separately) is precisely what I need to hang Christmas lights on our house. It suits my purposes, meets my expectations, and the price is reasonable enough when compared to the prices of other ladders. Having it delivered to my home was also a benefit to me since it saved me the added cost of renting a vehicle to transport it home from the store. I easily store it upright up against the back wall of my garage with an earthquake strap (chain) since I live in earthquake prone southern California. Next May (during May-Gray / June-Gloom cloudy season) I plan to paint my house and this ladder will come in handy when I paint the eves and trim.

I had to special order this ladder, but it was worth it to get a better product than what was offered on the shelf locally. Wait time was less than 2 weeks and I had it shipped to my store for free. Ladder is light and sturdy, and it appears to be durable for every day use, which is what I use it for. It has a lock on the right side runner catch that I trip often when coming down, but it isn't that annoying, and I have actually appreciated the lock once or twice. The runner catches are plastic but seem to be a high density ABS, and the ladder came with a card that claimed they were the best and strongest catches in the industry. We will see.

My husbands feet are larger and he can’t place them both comfortably on the same rung. Otherwise it is a good ladder.
