Replacing aged concrete stairs often give homeowners headaches due to the removal process. How can something so big and bulky be uninstalled? What many homeowners see as a puzzling is usually a quick fix. Trouble is, many fail to realize this until removal is complete. “The process goes a lot smoother than people think,” said Richie Walsh, Sales Manager for Shea Concrete Products.
46-year employee Bob Flores almost never got his start at Shea Concrete Products. He approached company founder Ernie Shea about a job in 1967 and was hired, although Shea didn't think much about his new addition. “I came home after my first day and I was covered in rust, form oil, and concrete,” said Flores, the company’s general manager. “And I said, ‘You know what? I think Ernie might be right, I might not last more than a week.’ And here I am, 46 years later.”

Despite stiff competition from seven other NPCA members, Shea Concrete’s “Lynn’s Seaport Landing Marina” took the top vote. The cover contest, scheduled to be an annual event, places Shea Concrete onto the cover for this year’s November-December issue.
