Most major home building supply stores, including The Home Depot, Lowe's and McCoy's, sell precast, mass produced concrete steps for general purpose use. The official websites for Lowe's and The Home Depot provide information such as statistics, pricing and the availability of branch locations. A wider variety of made-to-order steps can be had from various concrete manufacturing businesses.
Precast retail concrete steps are often sufficient for generic, around-the-house projects. However, larger or more specialized plans may require purchasing from a concrete specialist. Century Group and Shea Concrete Products are two examples of concrete producers with branches in multiple states providing concrete steps to-order for large and complex projects, either private or industrial. Some overlap exists, for instance Lowe's carries products manufactured by Century Group, and can provide information about concrete options that are available for special order but not available for-sale with the general stock.
While both Lowe's and The Home Depot have retail locations throughout the United States, businesses such as McCoy's and Shea are limited to a particular geographic region. In most instances, a business's website should provide branch location information. Consulting local home building and concrete manufacturing alternatives may also yield positive results if there are no major concrete retailers in a customer's immediate area.
