This wiki has been updated 13 times since it was first published in January of 2019. Not only are lightweight fiberglass ladders conveniently portable, but they’re heat resistant and safe for working near power lines, since they don’t conduct electricity. They’re sturdy and well suited for any job, whether it’s painting the walls, fixing a ceiling fan, cleaning gutters, and more. Our selection includes options rated for height, step width, durability, tool compartments, and price. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Whether you prefer a fiberglass selection because they resist heat, or they don’t conduct electricity, or simply because they’re known for their sturdiness, you’re sure to find a size and shape here that will stand up to many years’ worth of use.
