DESIGN AND FUNCTIONALITY OF PRECAST STAIRS

When working with Nitterhouse Concrete, your prefabricated concrete  stairs are prepared at our 127,500-square-foot facility. Architects, construction professionals and engineers alike can benefit from the stress-free design process in which our experts make recommendations for setups. We begin the process by learning more about the intended use of your orders and gathering dimensions for accuracy.

Building concrete steps used to involve cast-in-place methods that were messy, time consuming and difficult to monitor. With Nitterhouse, your precast concrete stairs arrive at job sites in an efficient set up for a seamless installation. Your finished product is crafted without being exposed to changing temperatures, winds and moisture which can weaken the structural integrity of concrete.
