Re: Pins Supporting Rebar

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Rich -

Although I haven't seen studies or other direct evidence that this
is a bad practice, I would be inclined to reject it for the same
reasons you cite.  If nothing else, the rebar stakes are prone to
corrosion and will then provide a moisture path directly from the
corroded bar to the attached reinforcement.

Just my opinion,

Charley
