Does this stuff even exist in Dallas? I have looked at the usual suspects but so far have struck out the rusty kind seems in good supply though.

The non-galvanized stuff is running about 70 bucks for a 100 foot roll. :shock:

Not looking forward to the price tag, but you have to do what you have to do.

To the best of my knowledge, concrete reinforcing wire does not come galvanized. If you need something galvanized, you probably need to look at fencing material. Galvanized is expensive, especially the hot dipped which is the best. The reinforcing wire price you listed is too high; keep checking. If you're using this wire in your garden, the regular reinforcing wire will likely last your lifetime.

I think the galvanized is for cosmetic only, at least as far as I can tell. From calling around today to some fencing companies they claim the costs are up across the board this year because of steel prices. (Thanks W)

TSC, Lowes, and HD all have similar pricing to what I showed above. I found one vendor in Tyler that will sell the stuff in 20' strips galvanaized for $20 a pop, but so far that's it on that front.
