    The GRP will start to deteriate. They do not like being stored out in the elements.

    Ladders are a death trap at the best of times and are almost useless to work from. I really would not bother.

    An electrician died in Scotland a few months back falling from step ladders. Was ‘only’ about 2 meters high. Fell onto a length of conduit that went straight through him.

    Ah ok, its just that I had a Lotus and had no issues with fibreglass rot I think with ladders the better option is to stick with aluminium.

    I have a double 4m werner fibreglass set. They are very rigid and handy to use separated but very unwieldy and heavy with just one person if you are using as extensions.

    Agreed, the UV in sunlight is probably the most damaging to the GRP.

    They will also be damaged by whatever is holding them on the roof rack, GRP being somewhat brittle
