Stone steps with risers are one of the many special pieces that we fabricate for contracts. The depth and height, the finish and the thickness are all variables you can select to compliment your project. As displayed in the photos below we custom fabricate additional items like pool copings along with your stone step treads and risers. One picture below displays a recent contract where we created a curved edge pool coping with a 115mm apron giving more substance and weight to the pool surround. Can you imagine how heavy and difficult to handle these stone copings would be in the event that we fabricated them in 115mm solid stone pieces? (mind your fingers during installation!!)
The use of border definition by employing the same field stone but with a different surface finish can tie areas together and create a homogeneous surface. Each area will have its own design and security requirements and these can be accommodated. Swimming pools require minimum slip and alfresco dining will often abut to internal floors and the transition from one surface to the next should smoothly transition to create a larger and aesthetically pleasing environment. Call us to discuss your requirements and let’s push some ideas around the table.
