Only one problem we used no rebar on our concrete, we used small stones under it. The owner of the company finally came and told us he has never seen anything like this....he said he will ask some more people and get back at us...now more waiting

OK, I'm confused, you say that we used no re-bar, but you have a contract with an installer to pour concrete, who did what?

The installer has a workmanship warranty. Workmanship warranties don't cover materials. What is the material warranty from the supplier. Here is the issue. Find out who the supplier is and get a representative of their company to inspect the finished product. Ask the installer where the concrete came from. They should be able to determine if it is a material or workmanship failure.

Is using small stones under the concrete appropriate for the installation and not re-bar?

When i mean we, i meant the contractor i did not do anything, and i did not provide the supplies. The contractor provided the supplies. Sorry for the confusion.

we don't use steel OR wire mesh in 4" driveways nor does ANY specifying agency suggest/require it to my knowledge,,, most people realize it doesn't add anything to conc in a driveway,,,that being said, we DO use #5 bar at the street side where the ' load ' comes onto the d/w,,, there steel adds ' flexural ' strength but never compressive strength.

still thinking something was in the transit barrel ( iron dirt ) - how it got in there is anyone's guess --- even mine
