Concrete Cover for Vert. Dowels

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think many contractors will typically stick vertical dowels into the ground and tie horizontal bars to them for support in, for example, a spread footing.  It seems that the rusting dowel could create spalling and the electrical connection to the structural reinforcing would promote its rusting.  

Are these concerns warranted?
