Brick and bluestone steps in West Newton

We’re demoing a set of brick steps and replacing with brick and bluestone. The house is brick so we’ll be using matching brick which we’ve found at Pirolli’s. The original brick are from the New England Brick Yard which is no longer in business. We’re using a Stiles & Heart molded brick which will work well.

After building the new steps we installed the original wrought iron railings by drilling holes in the bluestone with our core rig and then setting them in hydraulic cement.

One week later we went back to clean the steps (a thorough 4 hour cleaning gets all of the excess mortar off the bricks and stone).
