I'm pouring a 6'X9' concrete pad at the bottom of a set of wooden steps
that has a
concrete base that the steps sit on. Can I pour the pad against the
or do I have to put expansion material between them and if so what would I
The only time that you would use expansion joint material is to
prevent any concrete from being "trapped" in a
no-expansion-allowed situation. This situation can happen when
pouring between buildings, pouring around a building with
pilasters, etc. Assuming your new pad is surrounded by grass, it
is not trapped.
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
Hurry up. There is a concrete shortage happening (it is real..I am in
the busiiness) and at the very least it will cost much more. Had price
increase April 1st. Next one is June 1st. At the worst, you won't be
able to get concrete.
