Three Great Reasons To Use a Ladder Standoff Stabilizer
Whether you’re a professional contractor or a homeowner, using a ladder standoff saves you money, saves you time, and prevents injuries.
Let’s start with how using a ladder standoff stabilizer saves you money. (Of course, when you save time and avoid injuries, you will also save money, but we’ll get to those in a moment.) Possibly the most expensive issue that painters, rain gutter installers, utility workers, and all types of contractors face is damage inadvertently done to residences.
One common example of this is when a ladder scratches siding or paint, goes through a window, or mashes a rain gutter.
The contractor must now repair the damage to the home, which probably more than wipes out any profit made on the job. These kinds of damage can be avoided when a standoff is used, because it keeps the ladder away from rain gutters, windows, and siding, and protects against scratching surfaces.
Damage to a residence is even worse when you are the homeowner and you damage your own house! Insurance is unlikely to cover it, and you don’t have a contractor to blame and to pay for the repairs.
The easy and cheap solution is to always use a ladder standoff stabilizer.
