Reaching High Ceilings
Reggie in MD

I have need to do work around skylights located in vaulted ceilings, and also windows around the same height.

What is the best tool to reach this height? What type/size ladder? Also, is it possible to use a aerial lift for this?

Thanks

Depends, what is the access to the area like and what is in the area itself?

Lifts tend to be larger than what will fit inside a house, they are also very heavy which can cause problems with the floor. A lift would be perfect for a warehouse situation.

Inside a house, especially a furnished one, scaffold would be the better choice.

A good tall step ladder can be handy. Just get one tall enough so you don't have to use the last step.
For a large or involved job, scaffolding might be best.
