I have always used aluminum ladders since its light and reasonably price (not that I'm trying to skimp). The ladder is mainly used for painting and general maintenance. I do some electrical work around the house but I do not work with live power. So I was thinking of getting a fiberglass one as its suitable for all purpose use and for extra safety. I'm not going to be lugging it around that much so I don't mind that its heavier. My ceilings are not very high so a 5 or 6 foot ladder would be adequate. Are fiberglass ladders as durable as the aluminum ladders? Any input, Thanks.
