Some might call myself and others crazy for using steel rebar tie wire in my driveway, as well as even crazier for buying galvanized rebar of all things
When building my current home, I made the executive decision to build everything up to code as well as beyond. I heard about that couple who built the only house that withstood that category 5 hurricane that slammed Mexico Beach, FL back in 2018. They asked the builders to take the house up to the code for category 5 storms as well as to surpass it to whatever degree they could. That house could truly withstand artillery fire because of how it was built. I was amazed enjoying their segment on the news after that storm leveled every other property within a few hundred yards of their home. It offered myself and others the motivation to build my current house to excessive standards, hoping that I would also have a house that wouldn’t fall over from a slight wind gust. I asked to have the walls made out of concrete block, utilizing black bar steel rebar tie wire within. However, I designed my current driveway utilizing reinforced concrete containing galvanized, zinc coated steel rebar tie wire. Above the reinforced concrete is a lawyer of tile pavers arranged in geometrical patterns. The zinc coating on the galvanized steel rebar tie wire prevents moisture from penetrating the steel as well as corroding it past the point of failure. I want my driveway to last without any cracks of any kind for at least a couple decades after it’s complete. Some might call myself and others crazy for using steel rebar tie wire in my driveway, as well as even crazier for buying galvanized rebar of all things. They would say I could have used black bar steel rebar tie wire instead.
