Please comment as to the methods for extension of wet set anchor bolts that are sunk and too low to extend above the baseplate for the nut for metal frame building. discuss coupler vs weld please! we have opted for weld, in which case the welder is asking for details ofcourse (request comment about welding), (welding would require less removal of concrete and would seem to be conducive to maintaining bolt shear in the concrete), but couplers made for tension not shear create their own issues, besides that of more required concrete removal!
