Stoops and Steps
Stairs are one of the most functional ways to work with transitional levels of a landscape, allowing for ease of access in settings that contain grade or slope conditions.
Steps and stoops are also an important part of integrating your landscaping in with your home. They can be used to provide definition of space, while enhancing the aesthetic quality of your surroundings. Concrete Contractors Virginia has been in the step and stoop design and installation business for nearly two decades.
Stoops and Steps
Paver or Block Steps
Blocks are made from modular concrete blocks or treads. There are a variety of different brands or products available. These modular systems are glued together with adhesive as opposed to using mortar.
Fieldstone or natural stone steps
Fieldstone steps are made from large flat natural stones. Fieldstone steps can be laid without mortar in any pattern or variety to meet the needs of the space depending on the stone selection. Fieldstone gives a much more rustic and natural appearance to your hardscaping steps but will be much more irregular that other options.
Tread and Risers
Stone steps can also be made from treads and risers rather than solid stone. The treads are typically made from granite, or bluestone and the risers can be built up of any type of stone wall material.
We provide a strong warranty on all of our work!
We back up our quality craftsmanship with a strong warranty. We offer a one year warranty on all stone dust base and a five year warranty on all new installation for concrete base and retaining walls.
Solid Bluestone Steps
Bluestone risers or steps are similar to granite, but less common. Bluestone material will cost more and have less standard sizing options
Antique or Reclaimed Granite steps
Antique or reclaimed granite simply refers to granite that was mined long ago. Antique granite was split and shaped by hand, so it is rougher and typically darker than its more modern counterpart. Antique granite is more difficult to find, and it must be hand selected to find the right sizing. This does make it more expensive, but it also makes it more authentic looking than freshly quarried granite.
Solid granite Steps
Solid granite are the most commonly used stone steps. They are made of solid pieces of granite and are cut to size to fit the project. The heavy blocks can be dry laid, or mortared into place depending on the needs of the design and desires of the homeowner. Different types of granite vary in color and edge design.

You’ve got questions. We;ve got answers. Here are some answers to our most frequently asked questions
Do you use mortar to install stairs?
We use mortar depending on the needs of the project. Some natural stones can be set in place and do not require any sort of adhesive or mortar to hold them into place. Other areas or types of stone may require a more solid adhesion in order to safely remain in place without shifting
Why are brick and stone preferable to wood steps?
Brick and stone offer natural beauty that shines and enhances your landscape while giving the appearance of “having always been there.” Wood can rot and degrade in the elements over time, whereas brick or stone will still be standing for decades to come.
