Its a little unclear when you say "I have access to raw materials", are you suggesting you have the means (material & welding) to fabricate a ladder yourself? Aluminess will sell you a set of the drip rail gutter mounts to secure the top of the ladder, but this would require you resourcing aluminum tube, bending, and welding.
By the time you finish with all that (plus painting or powder coating) you'll probably be just as invested as if you purchased a new one from Aluminess.
