Aluminum extension ladders and staging?
 
I've been borrowing fiberglass extension ladders along with a 16' two man aluminum plank for my siding job. I was looking into getting a couple ladders of my own but was leaning toward aluminum extension ladders. What do you guys think about aluminum extension ladders vs fiberglass to use with staging?

As long as you use at least a type 2 ladder and not working around power line an aluminum one will work fine.

If you trying to do a whole house you would be better off with pump jacks and longer walk boards.
