About this deal
For this roundup, Ullman received extensive input from our ladder testing team at The Lab in Des Moines, Iowa, where 23 ladders were put through their paces. We think this ladder is a great option for basic household needs like reaching high shelves or organizing your garage. We've enjoyed using it around a house for six months and have no complaints about its performance. As a lightweight, sturdy, and maneuverable ladder, we can't ask for much more from it. Straight ladders: These taller ladders have to lean against a support surface, like the side of a house. They have only two legs and can feel unsteady, if poorly designed.

Extension ladders: Another form of a straight ladder that has adjustable heights. You'll find extension ladders with maximum heights of up to 40 feet, although for most people not needing to access the roof of a multi-story home, 12 to 20 feet is more than sufficient. Our top choice for extension ladders, the Louisville Fiberglass Extension Ladder FE3216, is 16 feet tall when fully extended. Telescoping ladders are basically extension ladders that "collapse" when not in use. While their collapsing features make for easier storage, these ladders still have a taller collapsed length, so they may be challenging to store in small homes. No need for multiple ladders: Instead, the M17 Velocity from Little Giant gives you a stepladder, staircase ladder, extension ladder, 90-degree ladder, or scaffolding (a separate trestle kit is required) all in one. One ladder for many projects is a big win for homeowners who are short on storage space but need access to various types of ladders. We noted during testing that the ladder could be used in a wide variety of scenarios for projects or repairs around the home, both inside and out.Despite its telescoping design, the ladder is very stable and steady. During testing, we found this ladder felt sturdy even at the top and it felt comfortable while climbing. Collapsing the ladder is easy: Just depress the two red buttons simultaneously, and the ladder slowly retracts, making it less likely you’ll get a finger pinched. We felt the ladder was easy to set up, extend, and collapse and very easy to carry when fully collapsed. All in all, this is a solid choice if you only need a basic ladder for occasional simple tasks around your home. When climbing a ladder, face forward, so your body is between the ladder’s side rails. Don’t lean to the side. This article is edited and updated by Michelle Ullman, the tool expert for The Spruce.

But the actual height of the ladder isn't the most important number; you also need to consider reach height. It is not safe to stand on the top rung of a ladder, meaning you'll be lower than the ladder's full height. On a stepladder, you should avoid standing on the top two rungs. However, the length of your own arms and torso adds to how high you can safely reach. As a rough guideline, a stepladder's reach height is 4 feet beyond its actual height, assuming that the user is an average height of 5 feet, 9 inches tall. So, for example, a 10-foot stepladder has a reach height of 14 feet.

When it comes to using an extension ladder outside of your home, we recommend purchasing a ladder that has plenty of rungs that go above your roof (about 3 feet). This not only ensures you have a stable connection to the house but that you can also easily climb down the ladder if you get off to work on your roof.

We also believe this ladder is likely the only one an average homeowner would need. Werner D6216-3 16-Foot D-Rung Extension Ladder: Although this ladder felt sturdy during our testing, we found that it was difficult to climb at the sections where it overlapped. We often hit our knees against the rungs in those overlap points, and this ladder was much heavier than other models we tested. It also didn't have ratcheting legs or wheels to aid in stability and maneuverability. While it's construction is reliable, we didn't think it would be best for the average homeowner.
