I am working thru the 2,095 sample questions as part of my preparation for the South Carolina Home Inspector’s License exam which I will be taking this Thursday, 9/8/17.
The sample question is below with the correct answer being number 4, a maximum rise of 8 inches between treads
***Proper stair design includes ___________.
- a maximum tread width of 9 inches
- a stairwell width of less than 44 inches
- headroom of at least 5 feet and 6 inches
- a maximum rise of 8 inches between treads***
Everything I have read gives a maximum rise of 7-3/4 inches. What am i missing ?
Thanks for any help…
Also if anybody in the Myrtle Beach area is looking for a home inspector trainee please let me know. I have a back ground in construction and hold a current unrestricted Massachusetts Construction Supervisor’s License.
