Re: Slab on grade

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In my area the WWR is always pulled into place during pouring, so the
location is not so reliable.  But it is used way more often than
rebar.

Does anyone have a relative cost comparison between using installed
rebar vs WWR that would provide the same steel area? Say #3 at 18" vs
WWR?
