This entrance step was originally flat. When it started to wear down and tear, someone pinched the two panels and hand stitched them together in an effort to repair it. The stress from this pinch in the vinyl caused other areas of the step to wear down and rip. Because of the state of the step, instead of restitching the torn areas which would eventually tear again, we completely replaced the top of the step with new vinyl. Now the step is restored back to its original shape and back in the client’s rental inventory.
