If there is one material that can be considered the king in building and construction projects, it would definitely be concrete. It is not only used as the foundation of your home but it can be used as the focal point of your entryway—the concrete steps. The concrete steps can be textured, colored, and shaped accordingly to fit your personal preference of an entryway.
The installation of concrete steps has its own advantages. The good thing is that a concrete step is a very stable construction material, which means it will not warp, fade, decompose, or splinter. It is also weatherproof and ideal for both hot and cold climates without the worry of erosion. A concrete step repair is rarely needed especially if your concrete step is maintained properly. To keep your stairway looking brand new all you to do for maintenance is to clean and wash it properly and re-seal it with concrete sealer. Another benefit is that concrete steps are fire resistant and create minimal noise in transiting movement vibrations.
But why concrete? The typical methods of wood framing and its construction can be slow and also costly, unlike concrete steps. Wood is also prone to erosion and pest infestation which is a big disadvantage while the metal staircase is susceptible to corrosion and discoloration. The characteristic of concrete being versatile, durable and long-lasting makes it the best choice on having over wooden or metal stairs.
The design options on concrete steps are extensive which encompasses a highly elegant design or a simple classical design. Textured concrete can also enhance the beauty of your steps or mimic the look of other materials while retaining the qualities of concrete. The concrete steps will last for decades and can be crafted to create a beautiful aesthetic feature much to your liking.
