Steps need to be site built to conform to both code and specific site characteristics. Using composite material will require you to have at least 6 stringers to support the decking of a 6' wide staircase.I am going to be removing my wooden 3 ft patio step and replacing it with a 6 ft maintenance free removable step.
Does Ultradeck, Azek, etc....sell an already-built step in different sizes that I can buy?
What would the materials cost approx? What manufacturer would be the best to use? Azek, Fiberon, UltraDeckRon6519 said:Steps need to be site built to conform to both code and specific site characteristics.

Just asking about the best material to use. Maintenance free preferably.Ron6519 said:You realize, you never mentioned how high the staircase will be. So a figure, any figure, has no meaning to someone who hasn't seen the site.
Is there any reason you haven't posted a photo?
Quoted price was for using Azek.concretemasonry said:How did they give you a price if you did not know what to build it out of. - Sort of like putting horse and cart in the wrong order. If you specify what you ideally want, the price will change, since they are probably trying to be a low bidder with minimal material cost.
How are you going to hold it up and what to anchor it to? Back to my question. What have people used successfully that has lasted the longest and looks the best. A nice sold maintenance free material.
