When it comes to building high-quality concrete steps, there are a few key steps in the process that must be done correctly to ensure a durable and long-lasting finished product. First, it is essential to properly prepare the site where the steps will be installed. This involves removing any existing concrete or debris, building a solid base for the step to be poured on, and installing brackets or piles for support systems to ensure a stable base. Next, forms must be built to create the shape of the steps. The forms are typically made of wood and are carefully measured and installed to ensure that the steps are uniform in size and shape. Reinforcing rebar is added to provide extra strength and stability to the finished steps. Once the form is in place, it's time to pour the concrete. Using a high quality concrete mix called Dura-Mix® that is specifically designed for exterior concrete steps ensures the strongest and most durable finished product. The mix is then poured into the forms, taking care to ensure that there are no air pockets or gaps. After the concrete is poured, it must be smoothed and leveled to create a uniform surface. This is typically done using a trowel or float. The surface should be smoothed and leveled while also making sure that the correct slope is created for water drainage and the appropriate finishing application applied. Once the concrete has cured for approximately 24 hours, the forms can be removed. At A-1 Cement, we understand the importance of building high-quality concrete steps. Our team of experienced professionals will work with you to ensure that your steps are built to your exact specifications and with the highest level of quality and attention to detail.
