Shall I use reinforced concrete for my new sidewalk from the front door to the driveway?
This would have been an unexpected expense to say the least
I appreciate making additions to my house, even if they take months or years to complete. While a new roof needs to be put up as abruptly as possible to avoid moisture exposure to the wood, you can slowly paint the exterior of your house. This is certainly normal for a person love myself who doesn’t have any help getting the project done. I don’t have any family and I have lived alone for years now. I wanted a new color on the exterior of my house, so naturally it took longer than I initially wanted. Thankfully the process is complete, however it only raised more questions about other portions of my house that need to be updated. One huge example is the old driveway and sidewalk leading to my front door. I wanted to tear away the old concrete and put in brand new concrete in its site. However, I wasn’t exactly sure if I should use reinforced concrete made with steel rebar tie wire of some kind. Even if I used the cheapest varieties of black bar steel rebar, I knew that the added cost would make the project cost more than what I can easily afford. That’s why I opted to make the new driveway and sidewalk without rebar tie wire. That way I didn’t need to purchase a full coil of rebar tie wire and a huge package of double loop ties. This would have been an unexpected expense to say the least. Instead, all I had to buy were packages of concrete mix and I managed to mix it myself in a huge paint bucket.
