Not only is concrete a material that can be used to accent a home's features and add style to any property, but it can be a long lasting investment that proves to be superior to many other types of materials. It can be used for the interior or exterior of a building and can be shaped or colored in just about any way you could imagine. It is also weatherproof to a certain extent, which makes it perfect for steps. Concrete steps are one of many things we can help create for you at Concrete Contractors Fort Smith. Selecting concrete for your steps is a great idea because of the low cost for what you will get out of it. It is durable and strong so you can expect them to last a lifetime while maintaining the brand new look they will have when we first pour and finish them.
Various Types of Steps
Concrete steps will fall under two main categories; precast and poured steps. The differences are obvious in that pre-cast steps are created usually at a shop or manufacturing facility and installed after where poured steps are formed and created on the location where they will be installed. The cost of the project and the amount of concrete needed will be dependent on how high the staircase will need to be as well as how far, otherwise known as the run. Depending on the purpose of the steps you may want a shorter or longer run. These are the considerations for traditional style steps, but there are also floating steps and all sorts of other ways they can be created. The possibilities are literally endless during the design phase. One thing to note is that since steps involve using a lot of concrete, they usually end up having longer cure times.
