1. There is no rebar protruding out of the stair beam and;

I have not talked to the contractor about how to anchor the base of the stairs. There are 9 stringers in the front porch stairs. If the contractor anchors the stringers by drilling into the garage floor and using epoxy, I don’t have a problem with that. In the Army, when building parking areas in a motor pool they often do this to connect the multiple slabs of cement.
I do not know the length of the stairs all the calculations. I have asked the contractor to provide these measurements.
