Materials Decisions for Exterior Stairs
In order to handle the exposure to weather, Great Lakes Stair utilizes a wide variety of materials that provide the durability required for many years of low maintenance and enjoyment on exterior stair projects. Materials we generally incorporate into our exterior stairs productions are:
- Tropical hardwoods
- Treated lumber
- A large array of metals, primarily aluminum
We do not use steel as a construction material for our exterior stair designs because at some point it rusts. Even galvanized steel will eventually succumb to the weather and elements and begin to rust and fail after 10 years. Additionally, we do not work on masonry stairs.
Our preferred material for exterior stairs construction is aluminum, especially around seaboard areas of salt or fresh water. Anything that can be manufactured with steel or iron, we can match with aluminum including wrought iron and custom railings. Aluminum can be combined with composites as well as powder coating on finishes for enhanced durability. Exterior stairs that are constructed with aluminum can quite realistically last for generations! While the cost for aluminum is higher, the return on investment long term saves money due to less maintenance over the lifetime of the staircase.
Exterior Stairs Cover A Wide Variety of Applications
