Steps, Stairways, Balconies and Railings
Steps, stairways, balconies and railings are functional as well as stylish. They allow you easy access to multiple stories of your house as well as keep you and your family from accidentally stumbling and falling over a landing or overhang.
Improperly constructed and installed steps, stairways, balconies and railings pose a myriad of safety hazards. Steps that are too steep, or those whose risers are too high, can be difficult and dangerous to navigate. Railings that are too far apart can cause small children or pets to get stuck between the posts or to fall over the side. Balconies without sturdy railings can lead to serious injuries if someone leans on them heavily. The list is all but endless.
