my stairs

Thanks to you gentlemen, my stairs have been redone and done correctly this time. I was able to print out the Builders' Code and show the contractor that I am fully aware that what he left me with was a poor and an unacceptable job and that he had to correct it. Not only did I have the Builders' Code behind me but my house is one unit of a condo group and he does all kinds of jobs out here and, without threatening him, he knew that I wouldn't hesitate to let others know that he left me with a shabby and dangerous job and would take him to small claims court if necessary. I'm not so naive to think that he repaired my stairs out of the goodness of his heart nor because he was "suddenly aware" that he left me with a dangerous top riser but because of the other factors that I just mentioned, meaning that I held the aces. I mainly want to THANK ALL OF YOU for having taken the time and made the effort to walk me through all this and to have given me the courage to insist that this be done right. You guys are true professionals who work under a high ethical code and I thank you for your dedication to your profession.
Judi, we here on the forum thank you for taking your time to come back and allow us to know how your stairs turned out. It is rare when someone does come back and let us know and we all do thank you.

Judi, never mind about the stairs; let us know if it's a boy or a girl!
