The Job Site: Steel Rebar and Concrete Pour

All Bell Bottom piers installed by Dawson Foundation Repair in Houston and other Texas cities include Steel Rebar. The Steel Rebar is custom cut and tied together for each pier before being inserted into the pier holes. The steel rebar will give each Bell Bottom Pier maximum “sheer” strength and permanency. The steel rebar is installed during the pouring of the wet concrete.
