Long gone are the days when precast concrete steps are the only option for your home entrance. These days, there are many options when it comes to step material. These include Natural Stone (such as Bluestone, Brownstone and Granite), as well as decorative segment wall block. Providing they are structurally sound and in relatively good shape, existing concrete steps can also be dressed up with a variety of overlay materials available on the market.
There are many considerations when it comes to building a set of steps in your front or backyard with endless possibilities to fit any size, location, and budget. A professional can help you design the perfect steps for your yard, addressing both functional needs and aesthetics.
Changes of elevation can work really well to separate areas on your patio. For instance, setting the fire pit area at a different level than the dining area of the patio creates some additional design interest. Steps allow us to make those elevation changes safely and with an elegance that only adds to the overall look and feel of a space.
