Outbuildings such as storage sheds and garages are good places for concrete steps. Concrete is very durable and provides a solid base for heavy loads.
Concrete steps are good for areas that are high traffic or need to be cleaned often. Places that require custom made steps are good candidates for concrete stairs because they can be poured in place in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Industrial buildings often have concrete stairs because they can withstand commercial use and all weather conditions. Schools and office buildings often have concrete stairs both inside and out. Concrete can be finished in a variety of colors and styles so it is a convenient material for stairs that need to last.
