Assessment and Planning: Designing the Concrete Front Steps
Designing the concrete front steps required a delicate balance between form and function. We collaborated closely with the homeowner to understand their vision and incorporate it into the design. Our team meticulously measured and assessed the space, considering factors such as dimensions, elevation, and architectural style. By leveraging our expertise, we crafted a design that seamlessly blended with the home’s aesthetics while prioritizing safety and durability.
Crafting a Functional Concrete Walkway
Creating a functional walkway involves careful consideration of various factors, especially in Fairfield’s diverse climate.
When working with concrete here in Fairfield you must pay particular attention to the grade of the walkway and in this case stairs, to ensure proper water runoff in all four seasons.
We planned for efficient drainage during the winter to prevent ice formation and pooling. We also accounted for the freeze-thaw cycle by using a stronger cement mixture that is more resistant to damage, ensuring the walkway’s longevity.
