“Fire Escapes – Repair and Certification”

Photo by PoPville flickr user Victoria Pickering

“My small condo building (6 units, 3 floors + basement level) has a fire escape on one side of the building that is in need of repair. There is some rust build up and it needs a coat of protective paint.

1. Does anyone have any companies to recommend that can do this work? I’ve had a hard time find iron workers that do things beyond fencing.

2. During my research, I came across, which seems to suggest that we have to get a certification every 5 years. Is this true? I believe because of the circumstances of our condo, DC regs ( do not cover our unit, but I’m not sure if that exempts us from larger requirements (which I’m trying to find more about).

Thought maybe other condo owners may have had similar inquiries or made repairs to their own fire escapes. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!”
