Steel rebar / gunite / decking ... in Houston area
I'm in the process of interviewing PBs. I know everything existing has pros and cons but I want to know both.
Most of PBs use rebar #3 8" on center. However one PB uses #4 12" on center and stresses to me it is an advantage. Is this true?
For the gunite company, I read some posts on this forum and it seems MMG gets lots of praise here. How about South Bay Gunite?
Also I have a negative edge and one PB wants to put a separate filtration sys for the catch basin. Is this necessary?
For decking, what are the major differences between stamped concrete and stamped overlay? One PB told me the stamped overlay will peel off in 1-2 yrs so they only do stamped concrete, not stamped overlay. Is this true?
Thanks for any input.
