Repairs & Renovation of Kyo-Machiya Houses (Q&A)
The slope of the stairs is steep and unsafe, so I want to make the slope moderate, but can I do it legally?
⇒ Can be installed legally.
* Installation of stairs
⇒ The above modification is not subject to retroactive application of the Building Standard Law.
Box stairs or stairs with a steep slope
Stairs with a gentle slope that comply with current standards
It is desirable to replace stairs with a steep slope in Kyo-Machiya houses with those with a gentle slope to ensure the residents' safety.
In light of the purpose of the Building Standards Law, the replacement of steep stairs that existed prior to the enforcement of the law with those that conform to the current standards (except for cases that fall under the category of expansion) will be treated as an act that is not subject to retroactive application.
