Precast concrete steps
4', 5', 6', 7', 8', 10' wide precast concrete steps are available and sized to accommodate most standard doors, with or without sidelights. Metal railings are available for all precast steps.
Measuring for precast steps
Are you a do-it-yourselfer? Here's how to properly measure for a precast concrete step:
Rest the end of a straight board on the threshold and bring it to a level position.
Measure out from the house 42" for a standard platform and 12" per step (tread).
Measure the height to the ground or finished grade at that point.
This measurement determines the size step you need. When an existing condition cannot be altered (such as a walkway) then a smaller step up into the house may be required.
Choose the width that best suits your needs - if railings are required, keep in mind they take up about 4" on each side.
Choose plain concrete or brick-faced
How precast steps are installed
With a poured concrete foundation, an angle iron is bolted to the foundation and the step is then placed on the angle iron and free-floating concrete block.
The concrete hanger is mainly for new construction and eliminates any settling of the step. The hanger is bolted through the foundation wall and is only available in four riser and smaller steps. Access to the basement and a work area of 42" threshold-to-ground is required for any size step hanger.
IMPORTANT: Do NOT use any salt or chemical de-icers on our products
As with any concrete product, and especially precast concrete, the use of salt or chemicals may cause damage. We recommend only clean, salt-free sand during the winter months.For more information, call 800-244-7544 or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
