Designing and constructing steps & landings out of brick, flagstone and segmental retaining wall stones in Nassau and Suffolk County. We can construct steps and landings with many different materials. The height and length of the change in elevation is measured to determine the number of steps, the height of each riser, and the length of each tread.
This page is here to illustrate how we construct our steps, and should not be used as a how to guide for step construction. Many variables can affect how steps perform such as improper compaction against the foundation of new construction, soil type, depth of excavation, subsoil compaction, use of stabilization fabric, depth and compaction of modified stone base, and depth of bedding sand.
