What is the Importance of Installing Reinforcing Steel in Concrete?

Some might wonder, What is the importance of installing reinforcing steel in concrete? Is this really important?”. Reinforced concrete in a sense is steel embedded in concrete, either by rods, bars or mesh, in such a way that the two materials act together in resisting forces. This reinforcing steel, if installed correctly, absorbs the tensile, shear, and sometimes the compressive stresses in a concrete structure. Concrete that does not contain reinforcing steel does not easily withstand these stresses caused by earthquakes, winds, vibrations, and other movable forces. Therefore, it is vital for concrete to contain reinforcing steel to ensure a structure is soundly built. When properly built per approved plans and specifications, this reinforced concrete structure can allow the members to withstand these stresses over significant lengths. The development of reinforced concrete started in the 19th century and transformed the construction industry. Concrete and reinforcing steel has become one of the world’s most common building materials.

What Exactly Does A Deputy Inspector Look for When Doing A Reinforcing Steel Inspection?

When an inspector arrives on a jobsite, the first thing that will be requested from a contractor or client are the approved set of plans. In order for an inspector to perform the job, he or she will first need to see what type of reinforcing steel is to be installed. Anywhere from the foundation plans to the general notes, we at Deputy Special Inspection San Diego are very thorough when it comes to special inspection. We are for our clients and ensure that they are getting what they deserve. Once reinforcing steel details are found, we ensure that all rebar is installed per approved plans with correct bar sizes, spacings, clearances, cleanliness of bars or footings, ensuring rebar does contain excess rust, etc. 

Once work is completed per approved plans, a detailed report is submitted to the contractor or client stating whether work has been installed per plan or not. Don’t hesitate in contacting us directly through our website, social media or phone number at (619)782-6128 for a free consultation!
