Q.Our rebar was delivered to the site before excavation for a stemwall foundation began. After sitting in the weather, it’s gotten quite rusty. Is this a problem?

A.Robert Shuldes, of the Portland Cement Association, responds: Light rust on rebar is not a problem. Heavy rust scale, however, should be removed with a wire brush.
