    Does anyone use or ever used a telescopic ladder? I really want to avoid ladders but as a backup was thinking of a telescopic ladder that doesn't take up much room in my car etc...

    anyone recommend best to go for ? seen youngmans and builders brand but unsure which best?

    thanks

    Exactly as above. Mine are bull brand. They don't reach a lot of windows but had them out a lot for going over roofs. They bend a lot & are a bit scary to start but once you've been up em a few times there fine. Handy thing but get a good make. Mine hold up to 25 stone.

    I have the 3.8m in jimmys link. Do the odd window with it but mainly for getting onto flat roofs. Get the one with the stabiliser bar at the bottom.

    I had one of those but recently bought a telesteps black line. They're £180, heavier, feel safer and are easier to close.
