Need to install a new set of outdoor stairs? Have you considered taking advantage of precast concrete stairs? Here at Unit Step, we have everything you need to complete your project. Here are four benefits of choosing precast stairs over more traditional methods from our professional concrete team.
Concrete is a very durable material. You won’t have to worry about it breaking down, and it’s great for all types of climates. You most likely won’t need to repair the steps for decades, but even if you do, the repairs can be fairly quick, easy, and inexpensive.
Stairs that are cast in place require much more manpower and materials. This obviously leads to a much higher cost. Precast concrete stairs are molded in bulk and are typically hollow. This makes them lighter, easier to transport, and easier to install. All saving you money.
Being that the stairs are pre-made, the installation time is much quicker. With poured-in stairs, you have to wait for the scaffolding setup, the pour, the shaping, and the drying process. As soon as your precast stairs are in place, they’re ready to be put to use. Additionally, there’s no need to wait on appropriate weather. Precast stairs can be installed rain or shine.
Due to the fact that precast stairs use less material, and are often made from recycled concrete, they are better for the environment. Another upside is that during installation, there is much less dust in the air.
