But I’m just as bad because I recently left a bunch of black steel rebar out in the rain and it rusted itself to death because it isn’t corrosion resistant like galvanized steel and stainless steel rebar
It has been raining like crazy over the past few weeks. While I should be used to the late summer rain showers that blanket our region year after year, this time around we faced a lot of flash flooding. I live in a high area of town, but my brother is in a low lying area and his house was flooded on the first floor during one of the worst thunderstorms of the season. What are you supposed to do when you live in an area that floods so much that you potentially have water damage at least once a year? My brother has paid obscene amounts of money to get his ground floor repaired, but at least some of it was taken care of with insurance payouts on his flood insurance plan. The rain we get each year is getting worse all of the time, especially when it damages anything that is inadvertently left out or requires it to stay out in the rain. LIke when homes are being built, they often get wet with wood that is exposed to the open air which is a bad habit of building contractors in my area. But I’m just as bad because I recently left a bunch of black steel rebar out in the rain and it rusted itself to death because it isn’t corrosion resistant like galvanized steel and stainless steel rebar. I was going to use the rebar for an art project, but now I’m not so sure since almost all of it is rusted beyond my ability to use it. It’s an expensive lesson for sure, and I know that I will never leave that kind of rebar out in the rain again unless it is a corrosion resistant rebar.
