As standard on nearly every driveway installation we carry out, a step is built. Generally this is because house entrances which are built off the damp course on your house are generally a few brick higher than the finished driveway surface.
We often get asked what types and options are available since they often become a center piece to your driveway.
Here’s a list of various types of materials we can use to build steps at your home on your driveway or your patio area.
- Block paved steps
- Brick steps
- Flagstone steps
- Natural stone
- Key Kerbed Steps
Using any of the listed products above we are able to create custom and bespoke steps in a variety of shapes. You can choose from a circular step, square step, semi-moon shaped step, rectangle step and elongated steps.
We might recommend one style of step over another especially on driveways if we feel it will benefit you over the long term. You can read more about our block paving services here.
You have the option of choosing how many steps for example you can choose to split a large step to smaller steps. We generally use whatever material was used on the driveway or patio to back-fill the step.
We can use a different type of block paving pattern inside the step to make it stand out or we can use a matching pattern to blend in your step with block paving. You can read about block paving patterns here.
If it is a larger step that it will require elevated heights, we will always recommend building the framework of the step using bricks. It is the only durable solution especially when looking to retain a larger step frame.
Here are some examples of the various types of step installations that are available on a driveway or patio area.
