Urgent concrete rebar sidewalk question
I would like to ask for help/advise badly.
I am doing sidewalk aggregate, 4' wide with 2.5 inches stone for level and 4 inches thickness concrete.
Contractors already finished digging, put stone and rebar today...
See the pics attached
My vendor is saying rebar will be connected from house foundation to STONE, not concrete to avoid concrete movement and cracks during winter time.
I am not entirely sure if is true, as far as I know I thought rebar is supposed to connect to 1 inch from the bottom location, or even center to give support.
He will use wire mesh as well tomorrow... but if what I know about rebar to concrete, not stone is correct I wanna correct him tomorrow....
Please let me know
