Spit & polish

Hi most of the houses i do are ground floor and first with a couple with an extra level which i can just about reach with red gardiner pole 22 and 1 extension (not fully extended)

but i want something i can use for skylights in the roof on a standard (ground and first floor ) home.

Also will an extended (like longest gooseneck help when im doing taller houses with small garden by busy roads. Thanks

Without seeing pictures it could be anything between 25-35 feet pole needed we have some bungalows we need a 35 foot pole for to do velux windows due to the slope of the land .

I did a new one this week , 5 velux on a 2 story house. 
I could just reach with a 25 ft pole with 6ft extension. 
It does depend on various things though, including roof pitch and what’s on the ground etc. 
 

and a few ft extra would have been nice.

I'd go with a 35, it's a really useful length. Gooseneck is useful for what you describe but not sure you would need the longest.

I have a 30. We don't use it all that often but if I was buying again I'd also choose a 35.

It may benefit you to look at other properties to gauge an average height of roof mounted skylights and measure them with an affordable laser / ultrasonic measure as we can't answer the unseen

 Depending on ground elevation fixtures fittings & window positions it could be 35 - 60 foot

Only you can answer this if you do the common basics
