Diversified Concrete Services has built over 1000 sets of ‘custom cast’ in place stairs over the past 25 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
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
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 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.
Concrete steps are the perfect for joining two different surfaces like grass and wood or tile for instance. The steps do not need to be large; a small set of concrete steps can serve the purpose and go a long way in the architectural statement of your project.
If finished concrete is not a finish you like you will still need a great concrete contractor to install the mud slab for the stone, tile or brick to be mortared too. We have extensive experience pouring strong mudslabs, which you need to make sure your surface material does not move for years to come.
Acid Stain is a topical treatment or reaction to color existing concrete. Acid stains come in 16 colors which you can apply to a certain intensity to get the desired look for your project. We have applied acid stains for over 20 years. If you have a stair or concrete step that you would like to have stained give us a call.
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. 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
Decorative concrete steps encompass a huge range of styles. We Build many styles of concrete steps including, Stamped Concrete Steps with nosing or straight cut, with exposed faces , or modern floating style. We build aggregate concrete steps with or without nosing and we can include color if you like as well. The list of styles go on, contact us to build your dream steps.
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.
