    Anyone use any keystone product for 8" steps ? I will have 90 degree corners on the stairs as well.

    for CRYIN out loud! :hammerhead:

    Would you get Keystone out of your head and just use Cornerstone! We have used all brands for all purposes - steps, walls, car jack stands, etc - and my block of choice is Cornerstone.

    As Dr Suess says: Try it and you will see. You will see I say!

    Alright alright Drew , I am convinced. I called York Building and I am going to use Cornerstone. The thing about the product I like is you don't have to buy a pallet of it. Just buy what you need. Then I don't have a half a pallet in my backyard . ;) Hey Drew do you fill the cores of cornerstone for steps with #57 stone ?

    Yes, we typically fill the cores for steps.

    But if the steps are not holding back of a load, - then exceptions could possibly be made. So many variables come into play.

    York offers good prices on their Cornerstone block. And if you ever have a large job that you know you got in the bag - they have a person that can spec the wall free of charge.
