Concrete is the best material to use for steps because it remains rigid and keeps its form. Over time, however, it can deteriorate especially when de-icing salts are used. A set of concrete steps is also extremely heavy and if the subgrade is at all soft, the entire staircase or large portions of it can settle. Removal and replacement of concrete steps can be very tricky because alternate walking routes are not always readily available.
