Install Granite Steps
Granite is the most elegant material you can use for your front steps. It's beautiful and durable. Granite requires no maintenance. The New Hampshire freeze-thaw cycle doesn't affect rock-hard granite steps. Unlike concrete, granite isn't affected by de-icing salts. Your granite steps will not spall or pit like concrete does.
Install Bluestone Steps
Bluestone is another elegant outdoor step material choice. Bluestone comes in smooth and rough cuts, and different ranges of color. There's a more pure bluestone that is a combination of blue and silver. Then there are blues with rust and brown accent colors. A thermal saw cut is smooth, and a natural cleft cut is rough. "Bluestone" is a variation of flagstone. The dense, compact bluestone variations have excellent freeze-thaw resistance. However, bluestone is susceptible to de-icing salt damage.
