Why Invest in Concrete Stair Treads

concrete stair treads

Stairs play an essential part in a home. They serve both as access points to another level and as an architectural feature in a structure. To fulfil all their functions, stairs must be well-built to meet building code regulations.

If you’re looking for a type of stairs that easily fit the bill, consider Ackworth House’s concrete stairs treads.

Aesthetic appeal

Our concrete treads elevate the look of a home’s stairwell. Though they have a straightforward design, they do not look rigid or imposing at all. They give any space a clean, industrial feel that matches a minimalist-designed residence or commercial establishment.  Like steel treads, concrete treads can give a muted, luxurious feel, adding depth and character to a home or establishment.

Concrete treads with a polished finish, are easier to clean and maintain, and more resistant to heavy traffic compared to their unpolished counterparts.

Seamless look

Ackworth House concrete treads are an ideal choice for homeowners who want a stairwell that seamlessly blends in with their home’s concrete flooring.

Our concrete treads provide design flexibility. They can be paired with other types of materials like pine plywood panelling or bamboo flooring. You can choose from our current catalogue of materials to find ideal combinations.


More commercial establishments and homes are choosing our concrete stair treads for their durability. They are built to last and require little to no maintenance. Our concrete treads are also strong enough to withstand large weights for long periods.

Concrete is, in itself, a highly versatile and resilient building material; it does not burn, rust or rot, and can withstand fire, weather extremes and earthquakes. Its durable nature keeps people safe, making it an excellent choice of building material.

Economical Choice

Concrete stairs are an economical solution because its material is widely available and more cost-efficient. It lasts much longer than alternative building materials and actually gets stronger over time. Investing in concrete stairs reduces the total cost of ownership associated with frequent maintenance work, rehabilitation or reconstruction. Concrete also has low maintenance requirements and energy efficiency, reducing operating costs that are related to energy consumption, maintenance and rebuilding.

We pair concrete treads with steel stringers for enhanced strength and durability. It makes for a sturdy and stylish combination, giving the space a strong yet unimposing charm.
