Reem construction Corp.has 12 years experience of builting porches Brick,Concrete,
Wood vinyle and bricks. Brick porch steps not only give your home an attractive,
traditional look, they are also as durable as it gets. Built properly, they can last
decades without showing any wear. To build a set of quality brick stairs, you must follow
masonry rules strictly and take the time and care to do it right.below is info how we built
our customer brick porches.

Step 1)
Remove the existing stairs if there are any. If you have a set of brick steps that are in
disrepair, the easiest and best thing to do is get rid of them altogether and start over.
Step 2
Excavate the soil to below the frost line using a shovel. Compact and level the ground
to prepare it for cement.
Step 3
Construct the frame for the cement using 2 by 4s lining the perimeter.
Step 4
Mix the cement according to the package instructions and pour it into the base. Screed
the cement level and allow it to cure as directed. The cement base will provide stability
to the brick porch steps.
Step 5
Measure from the base to the top of the porch to determine how high steps need to be,
also called the "total rise."
Step 6
Determine how high you want the rise of each step to be to satisfy the total rise. This
will require a little creative math since bricks generally have fixed dimensions. Play
around with different patterns to get the rise you need. The rise on a brick step is
usually between 6 and 7 1/2 inches.
Step 7
Wet the bricks with a garden hose a couple hours before you start to work with them.
Step 8
Mix the mortar according to the manufacturer's directions.
Step 9
Lay a 1/2-inch layer of mortar on the concrete base and use the screed to level it.
Step 10
Lay the bricks according to your pattern, leaving a 1/2 inch of space between them.
You can use temporary form bars to guide you in a straight line. Set the bricks into the
mortar with a tap from the mallet.
Step 11
Fill the spaces between the bricks with mortar using the trowel and move on to the next
layer in your pattern.
Step 12
Finish the look, tooling the exterior joints with a concave jointer tool.
Step 13
Remove excess mortar from the bricks with a stiff brush after the mortar has set a little
but isn't entirely cured.
