Stair Systems

The majority of my designs incorporate a cut granite stone for the step systems, instead of natural stone. Like most people, I love the look of natural stones aligned and installed in such a way that they can be used as steps from one level to another.

However, natural steps have many limitations, such as:

  • Difficult to shovel
  • Unequal rise/run characteristics making it challenging and potentially
  • dangerous for elderly and children
  • Typically more expensive
  • Labor intensive installation process

I always recommend thinking about how, when, and more importantly who will be using the steps before deciding upon a material.
