Using higher quality rebar that will last in coastal areas

Depending on where you live & the kind of environment it poses, you’ll be forced to approach long term building projects in strange ways.

  • For instance, roads in the north are constantly susceptible to freezing, thawing, & refreezing every single year.

Cracks form in both concrete & asphalt & will line the highways in these areas. When I lived up north, I distinctly remember the feeling of hitting all of those bumps in the road while careening down the interstate at 68 to 76 miles per minute. The best thing the federal highway commission could do was fill the cracks with more asphalt, creating the distinctive ridge-shaped bumps that line the highways up north. But in the south near the coast lines, there are other stresses from the environment that pose extreme risk for concrete & reinforced concrete alike. If you’re going to build something with reinforced concrete near the coasts, you better use corrosion resistant rebar tie wire or you could have a catastrophe after so multiple years of weathering & moisture exposure. That’s why some building dealers will utilize epoxy or PVC coated rebar, however those products are dangerous if the outer coating gets punctured while the two of us were in installation. The moisture seeps into the hole & then spreads to the rest of the rebar that is underneath the coating. This can lead to catastrophic corrosion & is extremely hard to fix. Otherwise you can use galvanized or stainless steel rebar tie wire for your reinforced concrete projects in coastal areas, however you will feel the extra cost burn a hole through your wallet.

Depending on where you live and the kind of environment it poses, you’ll be forced to approach long term building projects in odd ways. For instance, roads in the north are constantly susceptible to chilly, thawing, and rechilly every single year. Cracks form in both concrete and asphalt and will line the highways in these areas. When I lived up north, I distinctly remember the feeling of hitting all of those bumps in the road while careening down the interstate at 74 to 78 miles per hour. The best thing the federal highway commission could do was fill the cracks with more asphalt, creating the distinctive ridge-shaped bumps that line the highways up north. But in the south near the coast lines, there are other stresses from the environment that pose serious risk for concrete and reinforced concrete alike. If you’re going to build something with reinforced concrete near the coasts, you better use corrosion resistant rebar tie wire or you could have a catastrophe after so several years of weathering and moisture exposure. That’s why some building dealers will utilize epoxy or PVC coated rebar, but those products are dangerous if the outer coating gets punctured during upgrade. The moisture seeps into the hole and then spreads to the rest of the rebar that is underneath the coating. This can lead to catastrophic corrosion and is severely difficult to fix. Otherwise you can use galvanized or stainless steel rebar tie wire for your reinforced concrete projects in coastal areas, but you will recognize the extra cost burn a hole through your purse.

I donated my leftover rebar to the school’s art studio

When I quit my section time handyman supplier to go back to work my old supplier full time, I had a lot of old unit in a storage unit that I needed to find uses for so I could get rid of the expense.

A lot of the storage locker was filled with containers of paint and stain of all colors, mainly from tasks I would do for local residents.

Aside from paint, I also had a lot of roofing materials because those tasks are in high demand as well. Coincidentally, my cousin was interested in becoming a handyman himself and I called him and told him to acsupplier me to my storage unit to discuss donating my remaining supplies to him. To no surprise, my cousin was ecstatic with this news and the people I was with and I arranged a meetup time later in the week. She was amazed by the boxes of tools, paint cans, roofing materials, and wire spools that I had ready to go in the dumpster. The only supplies she didn’t take were the extra coils of rebar tie wire and the double loop ties that are stored next to them. I have traditional black carbon steel rebar tie wire, stainless steel rebar tie wire, and galvanized rebar tie wire. I even have 14 gauge up to 18 gauge rebar tie wire. After she left, I realized that I could donate the additional rebar to the local school’s art studio. When I was a student myself, my acquaintance Jonathan used black rebar to make these amazing geometric sculptures. She used welding unit to bend and conjoin sections of rebar, ending in appealing pieces that caught the eyes of people as far north as Toronto.

rebar tie wire

Newer coastal buildings are utilizing new kinds of rebar tie wire to prevent disasters

When my parents took me on a cross country road trip to visit my grandfather’s subtropical condominium, I had no idea what to expect.

My sister and I had only been in our midwestern state and had been on short car road trips only.

We were told that we would see the ocean for the first time with our own eyes, having only seen the sea in movies and television shows. It was a phenomenal experience, especially since there was a small lagoon at the beach and a large sandbar on the other side. Now I have been living near the beach for decades and I still haven’t seen a lagoon like this form at any of our local beaches. I saw a starfish on that initial trip, as well as a jellyfish and several snook. One thing I remember well was all of the salt. Not only was it in the water, but it inevitably was in the air as well from being surrounded by the ocean. We had a large coastal waterway on the back side of the condominium giving us even more salty humidity. For years I have wondered how some of these buildings and structures are able to stand the test of time despite the unavoidable corrosion. I’ve seen some steel rebar that wouldn’t last five years of oceanic abuse, let alone decades. I didn’t realize that a lot of newer coastal buildings are utilizing new kinds of rebar tie wire that are resistant to corrosion. While stainless steel rebar has been used for bridges, overpasses, and tunnels in the past, now companies produce other options like PVC coated, galvanized, and black annealed rebar tie wire and double loop ties.
