The steepness of a staircase is determined by the rise of each step and the run of the treads used. A deck staircase that rises 8 inches per step or less and uses 2×12 treads will be within code and help avoid the steepness associated with staircases. A long staircase may seem less steep if divided into two smaller staircases with a landing in between.
