Newly Poured Driveway - Issue?


not sure why anyone would use rebar in a d/w but they might have,,, thinking you'll get a new d/w is wasted effort - you MIGHT get some grinding but i doubt even that,,, no issues w/screed to my eye had they used rebar, chances're good they also used ' chairs ' to hold it at proper depth,,, nope, still think jomama's got the right idea,,, reinforcing his theory is the marking's are down toward the st at the end of the pour,,, conc would've been more plastic at the end of the day & most definitely needed curing blankets,,, maybe your d/w isn't the prettiest but i'd bet its within any aci specs way to go, jomama

I doubt it is rebar, if it is they didn't tie the steel worth a crap. I would go with blanket marks and leave it alone.

"had they used rebar, chances're good they also used ' chairs ' to hold it at proper depth"


They don't know what a chair is,outside of something to sit on,i've seen just about everything there is to hold steel up,crushed tin cans,bricks,stones,pieces of clay tile,even saw some plastic balled up and shoved under the steel.

Actually doesn't matter what it is. It is defineitely not an acceptable job. Call them back and see what they say is the remedy. Could be anything from go pound salt to we'll break it out and do it over.
