Steps

Stone is an ideal medium for steps, natural stone gives individuality when taking into account fossil content, striations and colour and reconstituted stone for its homogenous colour and texture. The large majority of steps around the London area are cut and masoned from either Portland limestone or Yorkshire grit stone, being the hardest wearing and slip resistant of the stone types available in any reasonable quantity in the UK. Most steps, new or replacement, tend to be clad with 50mm gauge stone, covering a substrate of concrete or bricks.

Dry cast stone provides an excellent alternative and used in areas where perhaps the expense of natural stone is an issue.
