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.
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.
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.
