Do I need a handrail?
We built this deck 3 years ago. I don't think code dictates we have to have a railing because there's a wall to one side.....right? But.....should we have a hand rail? Would it help an elderly person get up and down our deck....OR.....they could use the wall as balance? There are 22 steps. Asthetically....would it look boxed in? Is it unnecessary? What would "YOU" do? (It would be wrought iron "IF" we install one.)
