16′ WERNER Ladder Helps With Exterior Painting  & Fits In My Prius

***I received a product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% mine.***

Since we moved into our current home, I have tackled a few projects here and there. I replaced the drywall in the bathroom, refinished the hardwood floors, painted every interior wall, door and trim, stained the kitchen cabinets and the deck, etc. It was only a matter of time before I was ready to take on exterior painting. I couldn’t have done it without my favorite ladder, which also happens to be my only ladder. Yep, most of my projects were completed standing on a kitchen chair until my daughter found a 4′ wood ladder on the side of the road. Hey, ladders are expensive.

I was beyond happy when the nice folks at WERNER sent over a 16′ Compact Extension Ladder to help me out with my paint job. I was very happy!

My tweet that day:

It’s true, I prefer this ladder over jewelry. I have way more uses for a ladder than a diamond necklace.

With my  WERNER ladder I have been able to wash the exterior, scrape of old paint, caulk, prime and paint.  I also cleaned the gutters while I was up there.This is the WERNER 16′ Compact Extension Ladder. The ladder has three sections which means it reduces down to only 6 feet (instead of 8 feet) when it’s time to be put away. The two less feet in height  make a big difference when you’re transporting it and make it easier to store.What I really like is this built-in carry handle. I’m not a big person, but this handle makes it super easy to carry. Besides, the aluminum ladder is lightweight and I can put the 16′ ladder in my Prius.

I am not a ladder expert; just a mom who is determined to make a nice home for her kids. But at the end of the day I know which product works for me and what doesn’t. If you’re looking for an extension ladder, go with this one. If I can maneuver and carry this ladder, so can you. I didn’t feel safe on my wobbly 4′ wood ladder and during the holidays I had to borrow my neighbor’s ladder to hang up the Christmas lights. Not anymore!
