Rebar, short for reinforcing bar, is hot rolled steel bar typically used to strengthen concrete or masonry structures. While concrete is strong enough to withstand compressive forces, stress from tension can cause cracks. Because of its characteristic grooved pattern, rebar adheres better to concrete, forming a bond that absorbs tension to increase its strength.
Concrete projects including slabs, walls, columns and joists should be placed rebar prior to pouring, ensure the right amount of concrete is used. Following detailed drawings is the most effective way to avoid structural failures.
