Just seeking some advice on our slab that was poured today. It was raining this morning was the poor was completed which was a slight concern.
There are two exposed reo bars completely exposed. I understand that exposed reo isn't good although I'm not sure whether these are part of the structure or just there for the formwork or something?
A few of the edges are poorly finished, not smooth and have small chunks missing. A couple of the edges aren't exactly straight although I suppose the bricks will be laid around the outside of the slab.
Should this be raised with the builder or will they return to fix this? In WA by the way.

At a glance I would have the slab inspected by an Engineer. my2c
1. Placing concrete in rain before the set can effect its strength, durability,etc
Too much Rain when placing Concrete
2. Horizontal exposed bars are structural, edge vertical exposed bars are pins for formwork
3. I'd grab a large sample of the hardened concrete that's been discharge from the truck, left on site. etc
4. More info required
Size of the House
Do you have the site report, engineering Slab and footing details?
Was the slab reinforcement inspected before the pour?
Compromised footings/slabs are the start of building Woes..be prepared

Thanks Matt, the 200mm gap is free draining between their timber fence and the garage wall. I will make sure it stays that way. Otherwise I will keep an eye on the…
