How high is top step from the ground up

Asked by Buddy April 6, 2021
1
Answer

Typically steps are rated as rise over run which means height of step over tread depth. The ideal number is 7/10 which means a 7" rise and a 10" tread. That is what I would guess are their dimensions however this is not a hard and fast rule. I believe building code allows for 6/10, 7/10 and 8/10 steps. The best way to chose this number is to measure from the top of the platform to the bottom and then divide this number by 6, 7 or 8 and chose the best number.

Asked by Jeff December 19, 2019

Answer

The bottom riser is shorter because that’s the base. So, basically, when you put the treats on each stringer, 2x6s in your case, it will raise the step by 1.5” but the tread on the next riser will raise that step 1.5” too so you never actually raise the steps. Treads are usually an inch thick so the bottom step is 1” less because that step rests on the floor or slab. Stair code is generally steps between 4” and 7”. 8” is a big step and probably too big for your local code. Whatever riser height you have, let’s say 6-3/4”, code generally dictates you can have more than a 3/8” height difference with the bottom or top riser.

Used these for short deck steps and overall, they worked out pretty good except the step for one was 6.5" instead of 6.75" so I had to return it. I used them with Trex boards and they fit them well. I mounted them to the deck with 4" screws and brackets. I needed about two steps on either side of the deck, so I just set the last step in a concrete block. I put galvanized screws on the bottom of the last step before the pour for added stability.
