Some of you followed our house addition project last year. When we poured the concrete for the porch and walk, knew that it was too big of project to also pour the steps on the same day.
A year later, we finally finished the project. Though the house addition was at the back of our house, we are using it for our main entrance. We needed better steps from our parking area to the walk at the back of the house.
Two of my brothers that built our addition, also poured the steps.
On Thursday, they built the forms. The curved steps were a little more difficult than any concrete project that they have done but they love a challenge.
On Friday, they poured the concrete.
After the steps were poured. They trowled in a dye powder.
Then the forms were carefully removed. You don't get a second chance with concrete.
With a second color of dye powder in a mold release, the steps were pounded with a stamp to make a random stone-like pattern.
On Saturday, Ed power-washed the steps and sprayed on a sealer.
I love the final result! It is fulfilling to be able to call a project completed!
If you live local, I don't think I am biased to recommend my brothers for your future building/concrete needs!
