We had a vehicle hit the front of our house and it damaged the stoop
out front. The stoop was old, the top was concrete with some 8x8x2(or
so) concrete tiles on top. Some of the tiles are chipped, others are
broken. The stoop still is solid except for these areas.
Now that we're installing the door we need to plan for the stoop
replacement. It's 4x7.
There are several ways we can do this:
1) rip up the old stoop and replace it with a concrete one, brushing it
2) rip up the old stoop and replace it with a brick one.
3) rip up the old stoop and replace it with a concrete base but use
brick on top.
4) rip up the old stoop and replace it with a concrete base but use
The stoop faces west and gets afternoon sun. At noon about 12" of it is
shaded, the rest exposed. No sun in the morning.
What would be the best option for us? I sort of like the brick look
since it would match the house (which was built in '23). Concrete would
suffice since all of the other stoops on the street are concrete (some
plain, most are painted).
For #3 or #4, would pavers work ok?
I'll probably have to source this out as I'm about to leave the area
for 2.5 months.
