I'm looking to purchace a new extension ladder, 20 ft. What's the best plsce to purchase one Lowes, Homer, Menards or there's a guy here named Ladder Man. Also what's the better more useful one for me to purchase alum or fiberglass. I use it for general stuff, cleaning gutters, putting up gutter guards, some interior painting and that's about it.

Thanks,

As far as material, I would only buy a fiberglass ladder if you are going to work near any electrical wires. Spend the extra money on a heavy duty type 1A (300lb rating, orange in color). They are currently going for about $210-225 for a 24ft. extension type 1A at Home Depot and Lowes.

I picked up a Werner mini 4ft high scaffold of ebay for 40.00 bucks. It's on wheels and folds up for a suit case type carry. Like it!
