Porch Steps

Recommended Posts

I walked up and down this set of porch stairs a dozen times, trying to find something wrong with the step build.  Nothing; sturdy, no awkwardness, no sense of stumbling, etc.

Comments?

Perhaps the guard rail?

What makes you think something has to be wrong with it?

Well, it doesn't meet 311.7.4.3: A nosing not less than 3/4 inch but not more than 1-1/4 inches shall be provided on stairways with solid risers. 

Just because Twinkletoes Simon doesn't trip on it doesn't mean others won't.

Nosing is very important.  I write it up all the time.  Is that a ten inch tread?  In GA we have tread amended to 9 I think.
