column base plate anchor bolts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
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
