-- Alfred, Maine – The Step Guys, a division of The George R. Roberts Company, the region’s leading provider of precast concrete products, today announced the availability of the industry’s most complete line of precast concrete steps in New England. Installation of the steps is available directly from The Step Guys in most areas.
The Step Guys offer discerning buyers a complete line of durable and maintenance free, precast concrete steps for single family homes, condominiums, and commercial applications. The Step Guys feature steps with an “unmanufactured look”. The “Rockafella”
step is one of the Step Guys flagship products that truly rocked the New England step world when it was first introduced over 10 years ago. “Lots of people take Rockafella for Granite.” says Step Guys sales manager Brian Brown. “Rockafella is where the beauty and appeal of granite steps meet the affordability and functionality of pre-cast concrete steps. Most people like ‘Rockafella’
for its curb appeal.” adds Brown. “ The simple truth is that from 10 to 15 feet away most people think this concrete step really is granite.
“Poured in one piece construction”
is a tremendous advantage in our precast concrete ‘Rockafella’
step over real granite steps themselves”, says Step Guys production manager, Todd Meserve. ”Unlike individual granite slabs that are stacked up on a number of granite filler pieces, which requires a separate foundation and can shift or settle, the one piece construction of our products provides excellent long term stability.”
The one piece construction concept extends throughout the Step Guys entire line of products. The company recently added “Rockaround”
which is a step that looks like granite with a round or radius front. The “Big Boy” features the beauty of real quarried stone with the strength and durability of a “poured in one piece construction”
pre-cast concrete step. It is the look of 3” granite treads laid over real stone but the construction technique stands up better to rugged New England winters. “When a step is built using individual granite treads that are mortared to a stone base the water can get under the treads and in winter the freeze/thaw process can actually cause the bond between the tread and the stone base to be lost resulting in loose treads. Our ‘poured in one piece construction ‘eliminates that problem.”
The Step Guys offer painted wrought iron rails, powder coated steel rails, and powder coated aluminum railings. All railings from The Step Guys are manufactured from solid extrusions and feature welded construction for exceptional strength. Aluminum railings offer the additional benefit of being forever rust free.
