What is concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is a popular structural element of buildings. It is a large flat, horizontal concrete surface typically used for an area for flooring or as a roof. In addition, concrete slabs are used to construct the ground floor of some residential buildings as a support for the foundation, or directly on the soil.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be difficult when you're not equipped with the knowledge and expertise to do them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to stringent concrete slab installation methods that conform to industry standards as well as local codes.


Safety is an important factor in all our concrete projects. Before any project is started it is made sure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves and long pants, rubber boots, gloves and gloves are all components of our safety equipment. All of them protect us against concrete splashes.


The steps below must be strictly followed as part of the process.


Step 1: Preparation for the site

We follow the same procedure regardless of whether we're working on a tiny slab or big project. Every project we undertake starts by preparing the area. To begin fresh, we clean up and dispose of any waste. In the course of our preparation process we make sure that all materials are on site. We plan the delivery of the materials before we begin the actual work. This helps us complete the work on time.


Step 2 - Build concrete forms and strengthen concrete slabs with steel

Once the site is clean and ready, we proceed with the construction of concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms act as a solid barrier to help hold the concrete mix in its position. It also forces wet concrete to assume a particular shape or design. To strengthen concrete we make use of reinforced concrete using rebar. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to simplify the process. Concrete materials are mixed more efficiently using an concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, concrete mixers are required for projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing the concrete, we pour it into the molds. To avoid air pockets, we carefully pour the mix of concrete. Air pockets can be caused by the mortar not being fully filled with aggregate. Concrete is created by spreading the mix evenly across the form.
