    Default Scraping and painting house

    I'm an older person who needs the exterior of my house painted. After a few over the top estimates I wonder if I can do it myself. Are there any extensions that would allow me to scrap and paint the trim about 15 feet above the ground? That's the most difficult part. In heavy rain and/or wind the paint is really peeling. Due to an ankle injury I cannot climb ladders. Thanks.

    The best method is to work close to the surface you are working on, not use extensions.

    You can rent scaffolding to reach the highest points, or hire a laborer to do the cleaning for you.
