While many of the skills you need to complete a project can be found on Youtube, there are some jobs that simply require a different skill level based on the person’s experiences. If you’ve never even used power tools before, cutting and screwing together wood might be as hard for you as sculpting with clay is for a trained carpenter. It simply depends on your existing skill set and years of experience or not. Having a background with a particular project will definitely make it easier for you to learn even more about it and how to manipulate the material needed. I had no concrete experience when I decided to make a new concrete porch slab after my original one crumbled from years of weathering and constant use. At first I thought I could just pour the concrete, but since I intended it to be thicker than five inches, I learned that I was supposed to reinforce it with steel rebar and rebar wire ties. Thankfully rebar wire ties make it possible to lay rebar for a concrete project without being forced to weld the rebar rods together. That means that a person like myself can make a concrete porch slab without getting an ironworker involved. You just need a pair of ironworker’s pliers so you can bend and cut the rebar wire ties around the steel rebar rods. Once the rebar is secured with the rebar wire ties, you can finally pour your wet concrete into place. The final step is to level the top surface of the concrete before letting it dry and cure for a few days. I was impressed by my first attempt at laying concrete with rebar reinforcing it from the inside.
