What is the maximum height before a railing is needed? The porch has a height of 15in. no railing.
In Ontario it is 23 7/8 " it will be interesting to see the difference.
Is that the height before a railing is required? Hmmm
Yes. I know it’s stupid.
Requirement is 30 inches. But that should not stop you from citing it as a potential hazard.
30in before a railing is required, correct? Both gentleman are correct it should still be a safety concern.
I did an inspection a few weeks ago where the stair went up a steep hill. Although the vertical height from any given step to the ground was only 8"-10", If one was to step off the steps onto the hill by accident they would surely take a tumble down the hill.
I recommended a railing for saftey reasons.
