uneven stair tread length

3 years ago

In my new house being built , I have a staircase that has two sets of stairs. Stairs that go from floor to Landing are 45 inches in length , while the stairs that go from landing to second floor are only 41 inches.Reason for this is , width of foyer , as per plan , which was supposed to 9 feet was built as 9 ft 4 Inches. How big of a deal is this for the builder to correct it ?. I am not happy , as the stairs from landing to second floor are narrow and want builder to fix this. Before I meet with builder , I would like to get ideas on what's involved in fixing this and what builders usually say to push back on items like this. Any inputs or ideas are highly appreciated.
