Precast concrete steps cost approximately $108 to $420, as of 2014. The cost varies depending on the size of the steps and other factors such as their manufacturer and where they are being purchased.
Prices vary based on the width and the number of steps in the cast. For instance, a 40-inch wide precast of two concrete steps is only approximately $108, but a 48-inch wide precast of six concrete steps is $420, as of 2014.
Precast concrete steps are not made to order. Instead, companies who offer this product have a range of sizes from which customers can choose. Some precast steps can be fitted on top of each other to make any desired height, or they can be placed next to each other to make a wider step.
Most homeowners can install these steps on their own using a special lift sling or fork adopter. Many manufacturers use lightweight concrete to make the installation process easier. There are also accessories on the market such as aluminum handrails that can be easily attached to pre-cast steps.
Precast concrete steps can be used with almost any type of structure including homes with foundations, mobile homes, tool sheds and barns. They can also be used near above-ground swimming pools and in landscaping designs.
