What is Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs are a typical construction element used in building. Concrete slabs are smooth, dense horizontal concrete surface that's used for the construction of a roof or floor. Concrete slabs are utilized to build the ground floor in some residential buildings. Concrete slabs can be laid directly on the soil or as support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be tricky when you don't have the experience and skills for them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to stringent concrete slab installation procedures that conform to industry standards as well as local codes.


Safety is the top priority in all our concrete projects. Before starting any project we ensure we have the proper safety equipment. We wear gloves, long sleeves with rubber boots, gloves and rubber to shield our eyes. All of them protect us from concrete splashes.


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


Step 1 - Onsite Preparation

We follow the same process regardless of whether it's a tiny concrete slab project or a larger one. All projects start with preparing the area. We clean up and eliminate any waste that is left in order to start again. As part the preparation process it is essential that all the necessary materials are present on site. We schedule the delivery of materials before the actual work begins. This allows us to begin and finish the project in a timely manner.


Step 2: Form Concrete Forms using Steel and Reinforce Concrete Slabs with Steel

Once the site is cleared and prepared, we'll proceed to the installation of concrete forms that are made of wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that keep concrete mix in its place. Concrete forms force concrete to conform to a specific shape or design. To reinforce concrete, we use reinforced concrete using the help of rebar. This ensures concrete surfaces that are more sturdy.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make life easier. It helps to ensure that concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed in the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we are done mixing concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is poured into the forms. We pour the concrete mixture cautiously to avoid creating air pockets. Air pockets are caused by the mortar not being positioned around the aggregate. When making concrete, we make sure that we distribute the mix throughout the form. We do not fail to fill a space.
