Slab Foundations: Rebar vs Post Tension (my Engineer’s Opinions)

From The Build Show.

Matt is with his engineer Witt Smith to talk about the differences between conventional and post-tension slab reinforcement. They review the theory behind both styles as well as the construction methods that make these two systems unique. This all takes place on the Risinger Build site which is an ongoing series available at under the Originals tab. Be sure to follow along to learn more about this project and get more information on the decisions behind this slab construction which includes an original and new slab.
