Stair Building Ideas For Design And Construction

Concrete - House Construction And Stair Building

Concrete is usually one part cement, two parts sand in three parts gravel. It's been used for centuries by builders, architects and engineers. It is an extremely durable building material and is commonly used for building foundations, sidewalks and stairways.

Concrete can also be used to build almost any type of stairway. You don't have to walk very far in most neighborhoods to find a stairway that was built out of concrete.

Concrete also comes in different mixes that provide engineers with different strengths. You can usually raise the strength of concrete by increasing the gravel or rock size and adding more cement.

Concrete can also be purchased or mixed in different colors. It's not uncommon to find concrete in the shape of rocks or sidewalks with different designs.

 

Concrete is also used to make stair treads.
