Post Tension Slab, Quality concerns

Posted by Rick F on September 2nd, 1999 08:11 PM

I am having a house built for the first time and I am
concerned about the quality of the foundation. I drove
by the house (pile of dirt) this evening to see what had
been accomplished and found that the footing of the slab
had been dug and poured. I observed that the footing
was dug with a back-hoe and promptly poured. There are no
wooden frames or moulds that I would expect to see. Additionally
the footings for the wrap around porch were dug at about 10
foot intervals and look like holes left by one big scoop from
the back-hoe. Is the "unfinished" quality and approach normal?
I noticed that the rebar sticking out of the cement has star
shaped cracks radiating out from it. Again, is this normal and
acceptable? My assumption is that this is typical post tension slab
prep work.
