Can anyone recommend the most accurate tool/equipment to check for rebar in concrete? I know about the pricey ones used, but I thought maybe one of the more affordable ones out there might be accurate and more suitable for homeowners. Thank you!

I have had pretty good luck with just a stud finder ... it only looks for changes in density.

Tiddrma,

Thank you for the response. We have decided this is too much for us to do. We now have a structural engineer on board and should have an architect first of week. Our worse fears confirmed. . .contractor changed plans to save on lumber/materials and we are in a mess because of it. Thanks anyway.
