A common question people are seeking answers to are their choices regarding patio steps and deck steps and the price implications. We will detail several of those below.
A primary consideration for patio steps is to determine if you want to match the substrate of what the patio flooring is or do you want to contrast? What is the substrate leading down to the patio or from the patio?
If cost is a primary consideration, wood steps are going to be a far less expensive way to go then masonry. The challenge with with wood steps is they will require maintenance and are not necessarily the most aesthetically pleasing in combination with masonry. The paver steps are rustic and provide a low maintenance solution. Travertine stone steps are perfect as shown above when they are combined with a Travertine stone patio.
Concrete patios are best suited for concrete steps. A great way to warm up the look of the concrete is to stain or color it with products that are very inexpensive from companies like Quickcrete or Rust-Oleum.
