Default hand rail on stairs a little warped

Hi all, see the pic below of my hand rail on the main stairs. I think you can tell that although my stairs are rounded at the top, the railing handle is a little warped on the top half. Should I expect it to be perfectly rounded or is that not being realistic? I will put this on my PDI, but just want to know what to expect from them.

Yes I think it's very common, however, does not excuse the fact that it should be correct. Bring it up with the super now or mention it on your PDI and see what they come back with.

haha, your builder seems to have an issue with "bends"... baseboard, railings... maybe they should drop those models until they get a handle on it

Hey Homie.....looks a little funny from that angle do you have another angle to show us.
I think thats why I stayed away from curved stairs too many times I've seen that the curves are off, they have such sophisticated equipment to make them but they always seem to be off.
