rebar stakes

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mark,

Remember, the cover requirement on reinforcing is to prevent it from 
corroding.  The same thing would happen by driving rebar stakes and the 
corrosion could be transferred to the foundation reinforcing if they are tied 
together anywhere.

I would key the foundation into the native soil.
