dimensions of the slab ? turn'd down edge ? w/o more scored / diamond-saw'd joints ? jnt pattern ?,,concrete OR ceement ?
in genl, any exterior slab is NEVER tied into an adjacent structure's footing OR foundation OR slab because whatever stress attacks 1 would be transmitted to the other since they're join'd at the hip so to speak,,, another reason is what will obama do w/all those fine folk who make & sell expansion jnt ? how will they make a living & what about their children ? shall they now suffer due to your ignorance ?
bet you never even considered how your thoughtless actions affected their lives, did you ? well, did you ? no, of course not - you knew what to do all along - that's why you're in this forum asking for forgiveness, reinforcement, & whatever salvation we can offer.
excuse me - forgot my meds
ok, i'm back,,, aci recommends 2" of concrete above AND below ANY reinforcement be it rebar OR welded-wire mesh,,, depending on the dimensions ( l & w ), a proper jnt pattern should've been all you need'd,,, w/rebar, a proper jnt pattern is more important,,, w/rebar & certain expansion/contraction due to temp changes, NEVER run rebar across a jnt unless its an interior slab ( warehouse floor )
other'n all the above, nice work,,, next time, try putting it in right-side-up the 1st time
if you hear it from a guy in the apron store, be VERY suspicious the mtl/method will work,,, when it time to build something together, they won't answer phones NOR help To view links or images in signatures your post count must be 10 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
