When you’re in the market for a new set of stairs, you want to explore all your options. The traditional method of wood framing and construction can be slow and costly, and concrete stairs are more expensive, right? Wrong! Actually, in recent years, precast concrete stairs has become a popular option, and is both cost-effective and convenient. That’s why our team at Unit Step has put together this list of benefits so you’ll know more about choosing precast concrete stairs.
1. No Wait TimeBecause precast stairs are made in a controlled environment, there is no need to wait. You don’t have to wait for the perfect weather conditions to pour the concrete, and you won’t have to wait on forms to be built or for the concrete to harden. Poured stairs can take days to make, rendering your entrance unusable during that period of time. However, once precast stairs are installed, they can be used immediately.
2. Long Lasting and Little MaintenanceConcrete is a very stable construction material, which means it will not decompose or emit any toxic fumes, gases, or harmful components. This makes concrete stairs ideal for both hot and cold climates, as they will not quickly erode. Repair of concrete stairs is rarely needed, and they easily last for decades without needing replacement.
