Steel Rebar By Greenville Steel: Your Texas Structural Steel Supplier
Poured concrete is incredibly versatile, and can be used in construction, landscaping, and fencing for commercial, residential and industrial properties -- and steel rebar makes it that much stronger. At Greenville Steel, you can find a huge variety of rebar types and sizes for just about any project! You can reinforce concrete with steel rebar to prevent cracking, bending and other damage. Steel rebar helps to distribute stresses across the concrete, so the entire structure can better withstand the natural expansion and contraction of cement as the temperature rises and falls.

What Types/Sizes Of Rebar Are On Sale At Greenville Steel?
Different types of rebar are suited for different purposes and different applications. Here's a quick overview of the information you'll need to select the right rebar for your project.
Rebar Grade: The grade of the rebar is indicated by a number -- the higher the number, the stronger the rebar. For example, rebar with a grade of 60 possess a minimum yield strength of 60 ksi (thousand pounds per square-inch). This kind of steel is strengthened with carbon and suitable for commercial and industrial structures. Other grades commonly available include 40, which has less carbon and is suited for residential structures. No-grade rebar hasn't been tested for its strength, but it's a great option when you just need a little more durability for driveways, sidewalks, landscaping and other flat-pour applications.
Rebar Finish: Another important factor is how the rebar is finished. Plain rebar features a smooth surface, and it's best used in low-impact, flat-pour projects. However, plain rebar is easy to bend and cut to size, making it incredibly versatile. Most rebar, on the other hand, is deformed. Deformed rebar is molded, shaped and twisted to create raised ridges around the bar. This helps the wet concrete to adhere to the rebar better for greater strength.
