Stair riser height
We had stairs from the kitchen to garage replaced as a part of a kitchen remodel. The carpenter said he was making the riser height the same as in our foyer (7.5 inches). The stairs are finished and I noticed that they seemed harder to climb up than other stairs. When I measured the riser height it is 8.5 inches. I think this is too high, but I don't know what "code" is. If it is considered too high, should I ask them to redo it? I can imagine how that will go over -but DH has bad knees and we are middle-aged. TIA.
