Re: Ladder Safety -- Roof Access
Heat & cold shouldn't adversely affect the ladder. If the ladder is fiberglass, sunlight (ultraviolet light) will cause the resins binding the glass to degrade. Fiberglass ladders should be stored indoors or under cover. Wood ladders should be kept dry (as well as shaded). The only element that affects an aluminum ladder is stupidity.
