Walls and Steps
The three steps to get your project started:
MEASURE your project area.
For walls, you will need to know square feet (length x width) of the face of the wall. For steps, you need to know the width of the steps, the height from base to top (the higher ground or the door sill), and the size of the landing (length x width). To be safe and comfortable, steps should be between 6 inches and 8 inches high, and every step in a set should be the same height (rise) and depth (run). Most steps are 12 to 14 inches deep.
CHOOSE your materials.
How do you want it to look? How will it be used? Compare the cost, but also the suitability, durability, ease of maintenance and repair, of all the possible choices:
- EP Henry Wall Blocks
- Natural Stacking Stone
- Masonry construction: a structure block or concrete, finished with brick, natural stone or manufactured stone veneer.
