What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are utilized as a structural component for buildings. A concrete slab is a flat, thick, horizontal concrete surface that's used for flooring or roofing. In addition, concrete slabs are used for the construction of the ground floors of many residential structures as a support for the foundation, or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is difficult when you don't have the required knowledge and expertise. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to strict concrete slab construction procedure that conforms to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is our top priority when working on concrete projects. Before we begin any project it is made sure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. Eye protection and long sleeves, or long pants, rubber boots or gloves are essential. All of these protect us from concrete splashes that could harm our overall health, and our overall health.


The steps listed below are to be adhered to as part of the process.


Step 1: Prepare on-site

We follow the same procedure regardless of whether we are working on a tiny slab or big project. Cleaning the area is the initial step in all our projects. We clean up all evidence of contamination so that we can begin from scratch. We make sure that all the materials are ready for use during the preparation phase. We schedule the delivery of all materials prior to the actual work. This enables us to start and finish the project in time.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and reinforce concrete slabs using steel

Once the site is cleaned, we will install concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid blocks that keep concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force concrete to conform to a specific shape or form. Rebar reinforced concrete can be used for bigger structures. This helps to ensure the concrete surface is more sturdy.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make life simpler. It helps to ensure that concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. For the majority of projects an concrete mixer will be required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After we have finished mixing concrete, we pour the concrete slab into our molds. Be careful as we pour the concrete mix to prevent creating air pockets. Air pockets arise from excessive mortar being placed around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, we ensure that we evenly distribute the mix throughout the form. We never leave a gap.
