    Currently use this youngman step ladder to get access to conservatory roofs but it's not high enough and I find myself overstretching or standing on the top two steps (not safe) so would like to buy another just wondering what steps you use to access high conservatory roofs?

    If I've got to use a ladder for conservatory roof I don't take the job.

    I use a 7 rung triple that i keep on the motor
    If worried about marking the gutter i will use 2 rags to rest the ladder sides on
    Stepladders are dodgy

    I've got a combination ladder, folds out into a step ladder just over 7ft tall, great for conservatory roofs and getting over wrotten rickety gates/fences when you don't dare lean a ladder against them, was £99 I think. Bends into all sorts of other shapes, leaning ladder, standoff, platform.

    5 rung little giant. Can use it with one side at virtually 90 degrees as well so can get up real close. Even better may be a 6 rung. They are heavy but great.

    I use a telescopic ladder really good for conys 90% of the time you can set it to just below the guttering. Not heard of the little giant, just had a look. Looks really useful.

    Rungs aren't uncomfortable to stand on I think but that's just me, used as steps with one side at 90 degrees the 5 rung is plenty high enough and I'm only 5'4" and you don't need to lean it on the gutter like that either.
