When were guardrails required?


Recommended Posts

When were guardrails required on porches and steps? And where there any time that the heights different than todays standard? I know that the size of the opening in the graudrails has changed.

A lot of the older homes do not have them and I always recommend to by clients that they add them for their safety.

But I would like to know when guardrails came to be required.

This is a 1970 home.
