Alfred, Maine (PressExposure) October 22, 2009 -- 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 a round, one piece precast concrete step that looks like granite. The new Rockaround step is available for delivery and installation in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts directly from The Step Guys.
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. Rockaround is the only round precast concrete step manufactured in one piece, up to 5 risers in height that truly has the look, feel and texture of real granite steps.
"One piece or "monolithic construction" is a tremendous advantage in precast concrete steps that look like granite 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 Rockaround step is available with or without handrails. 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.
"People have asked us for a round step for years.", says Step Guys sales manager Brian Brown.
"The Rockaround is a unique blend of form and function. The beauty of real granite steps combined with the convenience of precast concrete steps."
