Rebar in poured foundation walls?
My wife and I moved into our pretty good house in November and after seeing several cracks in the basement foundation and garage floor, I wanted to get a consensus on whether they should have rebar in them. During construction, I never saw signs of rebar being installed but ai wasn’t there on the day it was poured, so I can’t say with certainty. The same goes for the garge floor. Once I get some time, I will buy a metal detector and verify, but I wanted to see if rebar is required or a best use design? Location is Milwaukee, wi.
