I have a simple ? Here for everybody that's talking bout concrete failing due to corrision of reinforcement. Have you guys ever done demolition of reinforced slabs street curbs or even simple driveways. If your going to say yes. Think of this. When you were pulling your curbs apart or flatwork and lifting it up with let's say an excavator. I bet u had to torch or cut into sections bc what was holding it all together after u broke it. The REINFORCEMENT. So if the reinforcement fails like some are arguing why are we cutting it. It sounds like the steel should just be all broking now. Some people seem to look at this topic like we are building a high rise. The rebar when I demo looks beauiful. If I could salvage it I would save it and use it on my own home. Just think about what I said here and maybe people will realize something.
