Not certain what type of light you're talking about (regular, spot, flood), but which ever type it is, I would consider using a LED bulb to replace it (if possible). An LED light should last quite a bit longer between replacements. Also, regardless of the type, if there's more than one bulb in the fixture, replace them all at the same time rather than having to do this again in a month or two.
Sorry everyone, I should have been more specific. It's a ceiling mounted front porch light, two stories high. If anyone has a 24ft ladder, please let me know. It will be much appreciated!! $25 for the service plus I'll throw in warm fresh peanut butter cookies!!:):)
Is the light fixture close to a wall where an extension ladder could be used? I have one that reaches way, way up to the peak of the gable on our 2nd story. If you hold it steady for me while I am up there, I could do it. I fell from a ladder once. It was only a 6 foot ladder but I was young and fell from the top of it, you know, the step that is not a step? I learned to respect ladders very quickly
DeVaz, I've thought about that, but heights freak me out. I may have to suck it up and be brave
I hate it as well, but I had to do it when remodeling houses. Just make sure you have someone strong holding the ladder and it won't move.
If you don't want to do it yourself you could pick up a day laborer to do it. For 25$ they'll certainly do it. I'd do it for you, but my ACL is half torn so it's to unsafe for me to climb anything that high.
