Masonry steps are created from using bricks, stone, hollow tiles or concrete. Typically, a building contractor uses mortar to bind elements for cohesiveness and sturdiness in each component. Aside from the technical description, masonry stairs and steps can blend with interior and exterior designs to create an attractive sight. There are many advantages to having masonry steps instead of plywood to enter your home or pace of business. One of the most important benefits is the durability masonry brings to stairways.
