    Rebar showing thru plaster on steps!

    I have a pool maintenance client that is looking to buy a new home with a pool. He had a pool inspector visit for his inspection & he found a small piece, (maybe 3 inches) of rebar exposed on one of the steps. Shouldn't he be concerned about that? If I understand correctly, it should not only be covered by plaster, but by a few inches of concrete as well, right?

    The inspector says it's nothing to worry about...just know that he will need to re-plaster within a few years...and they can patch it & cover it at that time.

    Help me help him. Thanks.

    I had some of this as well. When you get replastered, they will grind the rebar back and then it will be covered by the new plaster.

    I am not sure what you are thinking should be done instead

    I'm guessing you could just ask for him to repair or throw $500/$1k towards repair costs as part of the offer on the house.
