Tip : Painting with a Ladder

Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Ladders During Painting


  • How do you work out which height of ladder to use?

An extension ladder is recommended for exterior painting. Make sure the one you use, when in position, is 60-90cm taller than the highest point to be reached. Use ladders with care, make sure they are in full working order and safely positioned before climbing.

  • Where do I put my tin of paint whilst up an extension ladder?

Use an ‘S Hook’ – available from quality DIY stores, this is used to hang the paint tin on a ladder rung, which allows the painter to move more freely.
