Types of Concrete Steps
Our company is an expert in building concrete stairs. We provide world-class quality concrete staircases that last for years. More so, we offer various types of concrete steps. Depending on your preference, we offer:
Pour Concrete Steps
Poured concrete stairs have a more complicated process. It requires more people to do the job and more time to finish. It can also be costly. If you hire experts to do the job, poured concrete steps can be very resilient. It can withstand various harmful elements, like changing weather and extreme temperatures. Unlike precast concrete stairs, poured steps are customizable and flexible. Since you pour concrete mix onsite, it is easier to make last-minute adjustments.
Precast Concrete Steps
As the name suggests, precast concrete stairs are concrete stairs made off the site. It is manufactured in a facility and delivered straight to the location. Unlike poured concrete, it is easier to install and is less time-consuming. It is stable and does not lose over time. The mold for precast concrete stairs comes in various sizes. Thanks to technological advancements, precast concrete treads manufacturers can now make ones incorporating different textures, patterns, and colors as well.

Plain, straight stairs are becoming a thing of the past. Today, residential and commercial property owners are more open to unique staircase designs. With our decorative concrete services, we can create unique staircases using your choice's texture, pattern, or color. We can also custom design to make it more personal.
Our Concrete Stairs Installation Process
Building concrete steps from scratch can be a very challenging task. Hiring the best people for the job will spare you from too much hassle and costly repairs in the future. At South Bend Concrete Contractors Co, we follow a strict concrete stairs installation process. This ensures we provide the same quality work in every project we do.
Our step-by-step poured concrete installation process includes:
Step 1: Onsite Preparation and Delivery of Materials
The first step is always to ensure the site is ready for construction. We clean up the space and get rid of any obstacles. It enables us to make the work easier. Also, we schedule deliveries of all materials on the site before the start of the construction. Having all the materials ready saves us a lot of time.
Step 2: Measurements and Outlining Steps
Using measuring materials like framing square, we layout footings. Then, proceed with outlining steps using the approved plan and the actual dimensions of the steps. It is vital that we make exact measurements to avoid delays and any damages should we start pouring concrete into the formwork.
Step 3: Installation of Formwork
One of the most critical steps in building concrete stairs is using proper formwork. It is essential to pay much attention to the dimensions of concrete risers and tread depth. Also, ensuring the use of wooden boards in creating step forms and side forms. To make the steps, we use wooden boards that we attach with screws to the lateral structure of the formwork.
When building a concrete stairs formwork, we must connect the riser form to the concrete ceiling. Ideally, we pour concrete on both the stairs and the ceiling on the same day. Doing so helps create a strong bond between these two structural components.
Step 4: Reinforcements
Sub-standards concrete stairs can be precarious. They can be a safety hazard and can cause accidents. To ensure we provide you with a robust concrete step, we ensure to put on reinforcements like steels and wire mesh.
Step 5: Mix Concrete
Most of the time, our company uses ready-mix concrete. But some projects require a customized concrete mix. We have our concrete experts calculate the appropriate combination of elements to ensure we deliver excellent results. We use a concrete mixer for this process.
Step 6: Pour Concrete
One of the most significant challenges when pouring concrete is the weather. It has to be warm. Cold climates are the enemy of concrete. It will not work properly if you pour concrete during the colder season. When working with fresh concrete, it is essential to avoid creating air pockets or air bubbles. We use a concrete vibrator to shake up fresh concrete. As a result, eliminate air bubbles.
Step 7: Cure Concrete
Concrete may look dry after two to four days. But, the whole curing process takes up to 21 days. To ensure long-lasting performance, we always recommend using concrete stairs after 21 days. It is fully dry and is ready for heavy foot traffic by then.
Step 8: Dismantle Formwork
Once the concrete is dry, we can now start dismantling the formwork. Never remove the boards while concrete is still wet. Otherwise, you are up for big trouble. We remove formwork after 21 days as well.
