I should add that what we recently paid would be more than the annual top up as we had the inspection this time also - that's only needed after landscaping…

We didn't pay any extra - unless it was part of the stairs upgrade cost but it was never split out. We were surprised to see it installed and our…

Yes we got it installed and were told the only reason we had it was due to the wooden staircase.

We didn't have a long list but a maintenance supervisor came for our appointment. I thought the maintenance inspection was always done by the maintenance supervisor??

I would still go for one down the other end if you plan for appliances. It will be tricky to reach over that part of bench so you would have…
