Concrete can be used to make durable, aesthetically-pleasing, yet affordable steps. Concrete steps are used for many purposes, especially to help us access the higher and lower parts of a building or a house. Concrete steps should be appropriately installed to ensure optimum quality and safety.
There are a lot of advantages to using concrete over other materials when making steps. Primarily, concrete is naturally fire-resistant, which makes it an ideal material for home and even commercial construction. Concrete is significantly cheaper compared to other materials in the market, but it does the job well. Constructing steps out of concrete is a great choice because of the many benefits it presents. You can install concrete steps regardless of the climate because they can endure any weather. Aside from that, concrete steps are not appealing to destructive pests and insects, which make it a better option than the others. If installed correctly, concrete steps can last you a lifetime.
Concrete steps can be categorized into two types:
Poured steps- The entire construction of poured steps happens on site. One of the main benefits of poured steps is the ease of its transportation. It is more convenient to transport the liquid concrete mixture compared to the precast steps. Wet concrete will conform to whatever container you put it into, so you don’t have to worry about it not fitting the allotted space you reserve for it. Further, wet concrete can be customized to your preferred shape and color. With stamping, we can add texture and patterns to the liquid concrete. We can even add pigment to the mixture to achieve the color you desire for your steps.
Precast steps- As for precast steps, the production, including the measuring and the design happens before it’s transported to the site. It is necessary to use heavy equipment such as crane to deliver precast concrete because of its significant weight. When the hardened steps have been placed on its allotted space, wet concrete will be used to fasten them in place. One of the advantages of using precast steps is that you don’t have to wait long before you can put traffic on it because it’s already dried up.
You don’t have to limit yourself when it comes to your choice of steps. There are different designs and shapes that you can choose from. Whether you want long, spiral, or curved steps, concrete can make it happen. You can talk to our professional team, and we will help you find the perfect steps that suit your style and property.

Stairs are one area of any property where falling accidents frequently happen. For this reason, the steps must be made with safety in mind. This is the reason why it is recommended that you go to an expert to install your concrete steps, regardless if you only need one or two installed.
Our professional contractor knows the right height for each step to prevent the danger of unwanted accidents. If steps are too short, this can lead them to be tripping hazards, while tall steps can cause someone to fall out of balance while making their way up or down. Tall steps are also not suitable for children and the elderly because they need to exert extra effort to climb the steps. Keep in mind that the depth and height of the steps should be consistent to avoid falling. We also recommend installing a handrail for added security, especially for long steps.
While it is not required to seal concrete steps, we highly recommend it. Sealing the steps will make it resistant to oil and grease that can be hazardous if left unaddressed. You have a choice of whether to use a clear or stained sealant for your concrete steps.
We recommend adding sealants to your steps if you are located in cold areas. As the temperature drops, concrete absorbs moisture in and expand. This will cause cracks in your concrete, which is why adding sealants is necessary to avoid further damage.
