Advantages of Masonry Steps
As expert mason contractors, we create masonry steps from natural materials such as stone, brick, limestone and cement block. When constructing steps, we use cement to bind the masonry material together. This process creates solid and durable steps that will last indefinitely and require little maintenance. While many construction companies still use wood for steps and stairwells, wood isn’t as durable or long-lasting as that of brick and stone.
Rebuilding Your Masonry Steps
Many of today’s masonry steps show signs of deterioration mainly because in the original construction the builder used cinder block. Unfortunately, cinder blocks are not as strong and have a lower moisture resistance when compared to the concrete block we use today. That’s why cinder blocks are no longer used in the masonry industry today. The vast majority of masonry steps we here at J.W. Construction replace today will be from grade level. Rarely do we find a set of masonry steps that show signs of damage to block at below grade or in the concrete footings. In the rare cases that we do find below-grade damage, we must rectify the underlying problems before the rebuild or reconstruction can begin.
At J.W. Construction, our 25 years of experience in the construction of masonry steps allows us to meet the masonry needs of both residential and commercial customers. If you need repair or rebuild for your steps or want brand new masonry steps installed, we can help. Contact us today to discuss your project.
