Will a lift reach this?

Im soon going to be changing out the Fascia on my home to Windsor One. What equipment will reach the fascia on this upper gable, or should I just suck it up and go with scaffolding?

Maybe a snorkel?
Articulating Boom Lift.

Looks like a 35-40 footer would do it.

The time you will save over scaffolding or ladders will amaze you.

40 years ago I would probably done it while hanging on to the roof with my toes.....:laughing:

A ladder...? Or am I missing something? lol. We have one of the adjustable ladders that I'd set up step style with one end lower than the other.
We both must be missing something. I'd go ladders with stage.

It's not a problem doing it, I've done my fair share of fascia, I just don't want to work too hard doing it. I want to be as lazy as I possibly can.
Hire a pro to do the job. :laughing:

As Griz pointed out, a lift is much easier faster and safer. I don't care about the price.
you're right, price means nothing when you're lying in the hospital in a full body cast. :laughing:

I'm not doing it myself to save money, it's my home, I don't trust anyone. It's just the way I am.

It's not your daughter, it's just a house.
