Rebar is used to increase the tensile strength of a structure, most commonly for concrete reinforcement. This is because concrete has a very high compression strength, but lacks torsional or tensile strength to withstand other forces. There are a number of different styles and grades that rebar can come in, from carbon steel and ribbed to smooth fiberglass.
Service Steel Warehouse stocks a variety of ready-to-ship steel rebar sizes from #3 to #10, both in grades A615GR60 and A706 weldable. We also offer full-service processing capabilities, such as cutting to length or galvanizing your rebar.

Steel Rebar FAQs
Rebar is short for “reinforcing bar” or reinforcement bar,” depending on who you ask. This is because it consists of rods (or bars) that are primarily used in the reinforcement of concrete structures.
Due to the different variations in steel grades used for rebar, some are easier to weld than others. Low-alloy steel (or carbon steel) rebar is much better for welding than other grades such as stainless steel. Our A706 steel rebar is specifically designed to be weldable, so request a quote today.
