Fiber Mesh

Definition

Synthetic fibers mixed in with cement to help hold it together as it dries.

Things you need to know

Fiber mesh is intended to stop the cracks that form in the concrete as it dries. Metal reinforcement of the concrete, such as welded wire mesh or rebar may still be needed.

Cost Considerations

Using fiber mesh instead of a metal reinforcement may be cheaper initially, but can lead to more expensive repairs being needed later on.

Costs vary greatly by region (and even by zip code). To get free estimates from local contractors, please indicate yours.
