i have a condition where the contractor has installed column base plate
anchor bolts, and the bolts are not plumb. some of the bolts are located in
an area where concrete beam and column intersect, and there is limited area
for the bolts. i want him to plumb the bolts - he indicated it is common
practice to bend bolts straight after concrete has set. is it possible to
straighten the bolts as he suggests without damaging and if so how? how much
of a bend is it feasible to straighten?
Thanks - paul franceschi
