what are the pro’s & con’s of re-bar vs. wire mesh for a 350sq. ft. garage slab poured 4″ thick? are they even necessacary? am also doing a 750 sq. foot great room with stained concrete & radiant floor heating…what are my best bet’s to prevent the inevetable cracking of the concrete (would like to avoid cutting the slab if possible)? get a different answer from each concrete sub I talk to about these issues…would anyone be kind enough to lead me in the right direction? thanks!
