    Concrete decking about to go in. See any issues?

    They were supposed to start on my decking last week but for various reasons did not. They showed up to start working on it when we were out of town for the weekend and I believe they will finish getting it ready for concrete tomorrow and pour tomorrow or Tuesday. I am worried about settling because of how they had to build up the deck. Is there anything I should look for as a sign that we will have problems with settling? Is what they have done with pushing the dirt up against the sides enough?

    Not sure about the settling, but I would think the concrete should be 4" thick .... looks a little thin near the coping. Or maybe it has not been compacted yet.

    pushing the dirt up there should hold it. Im assuming there is going to be a retaining wall installed at some point?

    My first thought was compaction, but I see the compacting machines, so that's good. Other than not having any rebar yet, I dont see any issue.

    Looks like it gonna be really nice when done, with a BIG deck! Very nice!

    Two issues --

    Are they using rebar or wire in the slab-- I agree the slab looks thin -- more for pavers over sand than concrete.

    Second they need to install a bonding grid under or in the slab. 2014 NEC 680.26(B)(2)(a)

    Be on the lookout for chicken bones too..lol Seems like the every time my decking crew is at the house I find chicken bones between the rebar. I guess once they pour then out of sight is out of mind. I thought it was a tradition at first, but makes me wonder.

    The rebar is on site so I am guessing they will be doing that today. I'm gonna hang around for a while and visit with them a bit. My father used the same PB 13 years ago and part of his decking dropped about 5 inches so I am just a bit nervous but don't really know what to look for.
