A reader's Concrete and Concreting question: Block starter bars?
Fintan Mc. from Bonifay, FL : United States had this question about block starter bars.
Hi Fintan, Welcome to the club! Everybody who has had anything do do with blockwork has had this problem.
Another thing, if you find that block starter bars are missing entirely, drill say 5" deep and epoxy them in. We do this all the time with internal walls where the starter bars would be in the way of the concrete finishers.
As I said before, Join the club, you are in for some fun over the next few months Fintan.
