Looks like they have an accident waiting to happen. It looks good but I probably would have said full thread or no thread. Just trying to keep from having a lawsuit involving my company.

i see what your saying, and you did a great job, but i would have extended the bottom step out more to the left, as with the middle step and then the top step i mean whats it an extra foot maybe that it needs to come over. the job quality looks top notch, but the steps look out of place.

oh i agree..........both on the steps and quality
my house, yes, extend over and cover each door fully.........i would have also had the top step be more of a landing..........say 24"............safety issue, carrying lots of stuff in your arms trying to open the door and leaning etc, good to ahve a wide base to stand on

but like i said, its how they wanted it so whatever

what are you saying? what about the treads specifically?......i assume due to them not covering both doors but my previous post explains that

no inspector
