2) Rebars are bundled up according to their size e.g. A rebar with a metric size 25M will have a diameter of 25.2mm or 2.52cm (Rebar thickness).

3) Concrete is then drilled along the edges of concrete balcony/patio in residential construction.

8) Solid particles, rocks and other waste along the edges of Rebars and formwork are removed using a heavy duty construction vacuum…. Note: Even a tiny nail can cause an air gap after concrete pour over…These air gaps expand in winter as water that seeps in cools in to ice causing cracks in concrete and eventually leading to breaking apart of larger concrete chunks/blocks…
