I am looking to go into gutter cleaning, as an add on. For your normal size three bedroom house, what size ladder would be best. I am looking at using the ladder mate as well, so it has to be high enough for this. Also I have done a couple and noticed that people have asked me to clean the facia on the side of the house, which go to as high as the top of the roof. So I assume the ladder would have to reach this height as well. I guess this is around 40 foot high.
