TOPIC: Cantilevered Steps.

Cantilevered Steps. 13 years 1 month ago #20730

First time I have seen this configuration. (1450 inspections on my way to 1500) By the way anyone who has done more than 5000 home inspections in there career I applaud you.

I was hesitant to stand on these steps. The interior door was sealed closed(Wonder why)

I though the pad and pier looked good but what the heck with these steps?

Wow..... What was on the other side of the stairs, inside the house? Were they secured to something more stable than the bricks?

Could not see as the interior in basement was finished over. I recommend installing a footer/beam under steps or removing entire assembly. I was afraid to walk them. Seemed really weird like a twilight zone scenerio.

I have seen this before in an office building from the first floor to the second floor. Steps were cantilevered 4 ft. with a glass safety rail so you could get the full effect.
