Rebar is short for reinforcing bar, commonly used as a tensioning device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry, which holds the concrete in compression. Rebar can be bent to form light poles bases, building foundations, and many other custom concrete projects.

Wire Mesh is used over rebar on many construction projects when creating poured floor slabs. Wire mesh can greatly increase the strength and durability of your concrete slabs. Wire mesh can allow for thinner slabs, while still keeping its strength.
- 5′ x 10′ wire mesh sheets – 10 ga. & 6 ga.
- 5′ x 150′ wire mesh rolls – 10 ga.

Expansion joints that are properly placed when pouring concrete can greatly reduce unsightly cracks from expansion and contraction during temperature and moisture changes. It is common for engineers to consider this and have predetermined locations to allow for these changes.
- Fiber Expansion Joint
- Rubber Expansion Joint
- Foam Expansion Joint
