What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab makes up the majority of construction elements of buildings. A concrete slab is the thick, flat, and horizontal concrete layer, which can be used as a floor or as a roof. Concrete slabs are utilized in some residential structures to support the foundation, or directly on earth.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs can be a challenge if you're not equipped with the knowledge and experience required for it. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows the strict procedure for installing concrete slabs.


Safety is an absolute priority for any concrete project. Before starting any project we ensure we are equipped with all the necessary safety equipment. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long trousers, rubber boots and gloves. All of them protect us from concrete splashes.


Following the same process as before, we will follow the steps below:


Step 1: Preparation for the Site

Whatever the size or big the project is no matter how big or small, we will adhere to the same procedure. For all projects, we clean up the area. We clean up all evidence of contamination to allow us to start fresh. We ensure that all the necessary materials are readily available during the process of preparation. We plan for the delivery of the material prior to when we begin actual work. This helps us start and finish the project on time.


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

After the site is cleaned and prepared, we begin with the installation of concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are strong barriers that keep concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms make concrete mix assume a certain shape or style. To strengthen concrete, we use reinforced concrete using rebar. This will ensure that concrete surfaces are stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to help us with our work. It can also be useful to ensure concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Concrete mixers are required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we pour a concrete slab into the molds. We pour the concrete mix cautiously to avoid creating air pockets. The existence of air pockets results from lack of mortar to fill the gaps around the aggregate. As we pour concrete, we ensure that we distribute the mix evenly across the form, never leaving a single spot.
