Where should deck stairs go?

What is code for stairs on a deck?

Requirements for Deck Stairs Treads must be at least 10 inches deep, measuring from front to back. Stair treads must sustain a weight of at least 300 pounds in an area no more than four inches square. The rise, or the vertical distance from one tread to the next, can be no more than 7 1/4 inches high.

Do deck stairs need a landing?

SAFE, SUPPORTED STAIRS: Deck-stair construction varies, but the general requirements are consistent: proper footing support, and an adequate landing. Regardless of the stair run and number of treads, the stairway needs a footing at the bottom to support the stringers—they can’t just rest on the ground.

Do deck stairs need to be anchored?

This is not always required, but we seriously recommend it. With frost footings in place, you can use a concrete anchor, base plate and short post in order to create a solid ground connection. A 3′ x 3′ level landing area is required at the base of all staircases. The ground may qualify if it meets the requirements.
