At the Centre de Pierres Mirabel, you will find four types of steps:
We select first grade natural stones. Depending on how steep or gentle your slope is, we offer thicknesses ranging from 4 to 8 inches. For a given project, we select steps of a consistent thickness and based on the customer's specifications. This way, you will avoid levelling issues during installation.
A few additional tips:
These are natural steps in which the front and/or back has been guillotine cut and then are sorted by width in order to obtain relatively uniform steps for the entire project. The depth of these steps is based on the needs of the customer. The façade may be natural of guillotined, while the ends are generally not cropped unless specifically requested by the customer.
Note that a guillotine is a machine that cuts stone so as to create a split face without leaving a trace.
These are randomly-shaped steps. Although their thickness is consistent, their shapes will vary.
