  1. How does rebar work?

Rebar provides concrete structures strength and stability. Even though concrete is incredibly strong, tension stresses can cause it to lose its integrity, which can result in cracking and spalling, which is when the material starts flaking and breaking away. When rebar is installed before concrete is poured, the two forms a bond that strengthens the structure as a whole.
