    It's not just the fees as they mostly cover the inpectors, inspections & paperwork but they want to know of any upgrades/improvements so they can raise the taxes on the property. They also try to make sure it is done in a safe manner.

    Thanks for the comments everyone, yes Bodybagger, even you!

    The rails are 1 1/4" sq with 1 9/16" cap rail. From the best we could tell, the avg. aggregate size was about 1/4" for the precast steps. We are 2" +- from the edge and epoxy was put on the anchors. As for the total ADA compliance, the building went with nothing for over 70 years. People are just glad to have something to grab onto.

    I do my best to do it right, but sometime regs can be confusing has h3ll. I have done work in 3 cities close to me and none have identical regs.

    Hey, you did a good job. And strike issue one as graspability is covered. And with epoxy, there is no splitting force developed, so you're in the clear there too. And as far as having two rails, there's nothing you can do if the owner only wants one!

    I never want to make anyone feel bad with my criticism except for the periodic occasion when someone flaunts an obvious disrespect for the codes. It's hard enough keeping up that it's probably impossible to cover every base and run a job at the same time.

    That said, the building inspectors are not running a job. They are there to nitpick. But what obviously happens is that when they call out every little detail, they get political pressure from city officials (who believe firmly that inspection is a revenue generator, and not for the safety and welfare of the public) that want to keep the building permit revenue flowing.

    I feel sorry for a person who has to worry about being fired for doing their job to the best of their abilities.
