Whether you’re adding a fresh coat to a two-story home or you’re completely changing the color of an interior room with high ceilings, every good paint company needs at least one sturdy ladder. Ideally, you inspect your ladder every time you start a new job; realistically, you probably haven’t inspected it in a while. To protect yourself, your employees and your clients, perform a full ladder inspection every time you start a new job, before you store it, and before using it again if it falls.

Realistically if a ladder has been dropped and has bowed it gets replaced. You can tell if an aluminum ladder has a crack in it by the sound it makes, and at that point should be replaced. Ladder safety is important so replacing ladders as needed should be of little thought.

I wish I only needed one sturdy ladder lol.
