I was on a job site today -an old warehouse- where we thought concrete was spalling on the roof. What we thought was concrete was actually a wood chip and cement mix. What we thought was rebar, well... it wasn't. I'm not sure what it was as I could not get close enough to touch it. There was wire spaced about 3 inches on center and it ran perpindicular to the bar. It was kinda like a mesh.
I'm not familiar with this construction. Is it structural or just a form of insulation?
