This concrete garage shows a shingled roof, but a concrete roof may be constructed instead, of a low arch type, the supporting concrete forms being constructed on the inside of the garage. The reinforcing of concrete walls for small buildings is a simple matter, but should receive careful attention. The reasons for such reinforcing are to prevent cracks, due to settlement, and to expansion and contraction from heat and cold. The reinforcing for a one-story building usually consists of a network of vertical and horizontal bars, placed in the center of the concrete walls, as is shown in Fig. A, Plate 39. There are various types of reinforcing rods, round, square, twisted or of special patent design. Rods should be wired together at all intersecting points and splices overlap a distance at least 64 times the diameter of the rod. All corners and openings require a special method of reinforcing. A simple and effective scheme for reinforcing is shown in Fig. B, Plate 39. Instead of being bent at the corners, the horizontal rods are terminated and securely wired to a vertical rod at this point. Additional rods, about 4 ft. long, bent to a right angle with equal legs, are used to reinforce the corners horizontally as shown. Place two rods vertically on each side of the opening. Two rods are then placed horizontally below the opening and three rods horizontally above the opening.

Two rods are placed diagonally across all corners of the opening, as shown. Rods above the opening should be 3 ft. longer than the width of the opening, while those at the sides and below the opening should be at least 18 inch to 2 ft. longer than the dimensions of the opening. Where door or window openings are more than 4 ft. in width, it is advisable to modify the former scheme by bending up the ends of two of the rods above the opening, as shown in the larger opening of Fig. A, Plate 39. This serves to take care of the large shear or cutting load which - might otherwise unduly stress the concrete near the ends of the span. If the opening is more than 8 ft. wide, the concrete wall above should be strengthened still further by substituting (3) 2 inch rods for the (4) 1 inch rods recommended for smaller spans.
