We have been working on a really big job at a shopping complex for the last month.
My crew and I are just now getting to the point where we’re ready to start pouring the concrete for the footers at the site. Of course, there has been a ton of prep work to get done around the job site, and at one point I thought we were never going to be able to start pouring the foundations of this site. It seems like it has taken forever. We have a lot of concrete work to get done here and the weather has not been cooperating very much either. We have been having one thing after another go wrong. Finally though, it’s time to get started and so we are trying to make sure that everything is ready so we won’t have any more setbacks. We have a lot of different things happening at the same time around here so we have ordered a ton of rebar wire ties. We use these rebar wire ties all the time for all of our concrete work and for lots of other things around the job site. I wanted to make sure that we weren’t right in the middle of concrete pouring when we suddenly ran out of wire ties. That’s why I ordered lots of different sizes of double loop wire ties. We usually use 16 gauge wire and the 18 gauge wire ties, but this time I ordered 16 gauge, 14 gauge, and 18 gauge. I decided to order bags of 2000 in every length available just so that we would not accidentally run out in the middle of a project.
