Concrete Stairs

Diversified Concrete Services has built over 1000 sets of ‘custom cast’ in place stairs over the past 20 years. Each set of concrete steps is always different than the last, whether the finish, colour, design, the size, or how the stairs are supported.

Concrete Steps

Calgary Concrete Construction is challenging because of all the standard construction practices for keeping a massive structure like a step sound; we also have to take into account the pressures it may receive from the ground, the frost. We use many methods to support our steps, brackets, grade beams and steel screw piles to name a few of the best and most popular practices with the addition of frost cushion our steps are built to last. Our area of expertise is Custom Homes Concrete Construction.

Contemporary Concrete Stairs

Contemporary concrete stairs are probably best summed up as typically everyday grey concrete steps, with a smooth finish most often sandblasted with large nosing thicker than ½ of the riser height. We use saw cuts when doing contemporary architectural concrete. However, hand cuts are also acceptable.

Calgary Contemporary Steps

High gloss sealers are never used as other decorative finishes, instead of a non-gloss permanent penetrating concrete sealer. Over time contemporary concrete steps show a patinated look making the concrete look elegant and timeless as this style should look as it ages.

Radius Concrete Steps

Circular Concrete Stairs

Radius or Circular Concrete steps is another style of the many types of concrete steps we build. We can create these style of steps with any of our decorative concrete finishes such as stamped concrete, float finish, architectural sandblast, acid stained concrete, or exposed aggregate. Nosings are challenging on radius steps, but we can add those also if required, and with the addition of more full treads, these steps look very classy and are inviting to the user.

Landscape Concrete Steps

Landscapes Walk with Stairs

When you have a grade change of over 3% over longer distances, you will need concrete steps added to your walkways, making landings every so often based on grade.

Contemporary Steps

It can be a straight run staying the same width, making it very practical or add an attractive decorative element but having offset landings along the way, for instance, with the concrete walkways changing direction slightly as you progress along with it. Finishes and styles like all our concrete work are wide-ranging, so onsite meeting is always best for getting accurate job quotes

Stamped Concrete Close Up

Decorative Concrete Stairs

Being a decorative concrete contractor, we enjoy the challenge when we are asked to make decorative concrete stairs. Stamped Concrete and Exposed Aggregate are 2 of the most popular decorative concrete stairs to be built in Calgary, and we build those styles very often.

Stairs with Lights

Lights make a great addition to a set of ‘custom cast’ in place concrete steps. Electrical boxes are attached to concrete risers before the pour, conduits connect all boxes and are used later to feed wiring after the concrete is poured. If you would like lights added to your concrete sets, make sure you mention it to us early in the project because many step lights are special order.
