Question DetailsAsked on 5/4/2015

looking for someone to change 2 exterior flood lights approx 25 feet off of patio floor

i have 2 spot lights in the corner of my house that is 3 levels up from the patio floor including a basement walkout. One light is out and I would like to replace with 2 LED flood lights. Probably need a 40 foot extension ladder.

Also, it would be great if this same provider can also clean the underside of the eves in the same area for about 25 linear feet but the flood light replacement is priority.

Be sure your LED floodlights are appropriately rated if it gets cold in your area - many cannot handle below about 20 or 30 degrees and still start. Also, make sure if on a photocell to automatically turn on and off at night that it is the kind that LED's can run on - older types and some modern ones use a slight current through the circuit to operate the photocell, which makes CFL or LED or Halogen lights continuously try to start even when the photocell is off - need 3-wire photocell for that case, where photocell is independently wired from the light circuit.

For a contractor - assuming you are not talking pressure washing, just wiping with a rag to remove cobwebs and leaves and such or maybe a bit of soap and water to dedust, some handymen would do this - 25' is about their limit usually using a 24-28' extension ladder (plus a few foot arm reach = 25' plus), which is the size many contractors use for their "long" ladder.

Other possibility would be a house pressure washing company if there are no open eaves for the water to splash into.

Last possibility would be a Roofer or Painter - though would be probably $150 or so minimum charge for 15 minutes work - assuming of course you bought the bulbs in advance.
