YOUR PORCH COULD BE A LIFE SAFETY HAZARD IF NOT REPAIRED PROPERLY.

YOUR PORCH MIGHT HAVE WORKED FINE FOR YEARS BUT SOME STRUCTURAL MEMBERS COULD BE WORN OUT OR SOMEBODY PREVIOUSLY TRIED TO FIX IT USING UNACCEPTABLE METHODS.

                  
      

BELOW YOU WILL FIND A FEW EXAMPLES OF THE MOST COMMON PROBLEMS THAT WE OBSERVE IN PORCH STRUCTURES.


THIS RAILING IS UNACCEPTABLE BECAUSE THE REQUIRED MAXIMUM DISTANCE BETWEEN BALUSTERS IS 4 INCHES ON CENTER.



SPECIAL ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO EACH STEP IN STAIRWAYS AS THESE ARE MEANT TO PROVIDE A SAFE ESCAPE ROUTE IN CASE OF FIRE.  THREADS  AND RISERS SHOULD HAVE THE SAME WIDTH  AND HEIGHT.


THE COLUMN SPLICE IS OVERCUT, OF INAPPROPRIATE LENGTH,  AND THE BOLTS ARE THE WRONG SIZE.
