Have total confidence in your concrete countertops with proper reinforcing. Even the best concrete is strong in compression, but weak in tension. If you don’t reinforce your countertops properly, you risk cracking or sudden breakage.This essential self-study course costs just $79 and will allow you to make larger slabs with more confidence, move slabs around your shop sooner, install sooner and get paid sooner.
You will learn:
- Which reinforcing materials work, which don’t, and why
- Exactly how much reinforcing to use and where to place it
- Detailed, step by step instructions for creating the reinforcing grid
- How to reinforce around sink holes, curved shapes and edge returns
(Note: The course applies only to traditional precast concrete countertops. The principles of compression and tension still apply to GFRC slabs, but the reinforcement methods are different.)
