Jerry Simon Posted August 8, 2021 Report Share Posted August 8, 2021 (edited) Our State Standards of Practice say: Report on those systems and components inspected that, in the opinion of the inspector, are significantly deficient including: A) A reason why, if not self evident, the system or component is significantly deficient. B) Whether the reported deficiency should be corrected or monitored. (bold mine) So, you inspect a stairway that's extremely steep, has very low headroom, has inconsistent tread widths and riser heights, and other related problems. The only cure is to spend an s-load of money and re-build the entire stairwell. Do/would you tell your client to correct the hazards as dictated by our state standards (or, *monitor* and be really really really careful)? And, not-withstanding our state standards concern, how else do you folk write-up such stairs? Edited August 8, 2021 by Jerry Simon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
