March 25, 2019

Like cement, sand and concrete, steel is a vital ingredient in building your home. Here are a few things to keep in mind while choosing steel.

Buy your steel from reputed companies and check for ISO or ISI certification on the bars. When the steel is delivered, check and ensure that the bar are all of the same length (standard length is 12m) and that they don’t have any cracks, rust, oil or dirt on them. While storing the steel bars, ensure that there is no direct contact with the ground.

If you find any inconsistency, notify your contractor and make sure it is addressed.
