Bond Beam Reinf

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a question about bond beam reinforcement where the masonry wall is
parallel to the roof joists.  I have called out for the reinforcement to
slope with the ledger angle bolted to the wall, I have also called out for
the A.B.'s to hook around the sloping reinforcement.  The contractor wants
to place all reinforcement horizontal and stair step the bond beam.  I have
told the contractor I want the bond beam to follow the roof.  My question is
can the mason place the bond beam reinforcement to follow the roof slope.
The roof slope is 3/8" per foot.  Thank you.
