What is concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are an extremely sought-after structural element in buildings. It is a thick and flat horizontal concrete surface typically used for an area for flooring or as a roof. Concrete slabs are used to build the ground floor of some residential structures. They can be positioned directly on the soil or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs are not for those with weak hearts. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to stringent concrete slab installation procedures which are compliant with the industry standards and local codes.


Safety is a priority for all the concrete projects we work on. Before beginning any project, we make sure we have all necessary safety equipment. We are equipped with gloves and long sleeves, as well as long pants and rubber boots. These all protect us from concrete splatters, which could harm our overall health and well-being.


We strictly follow the steps listed below as a part of the procedure:


Step 1: Preparation at the site

Whatever the size or large the project, we use the same method for all projects. Every project we work on starts by preparing the area. We clean up and eliminate garbage so we can begin from scratch. We make sure that all the necessary materials are readily available during the process of preparation. We schedule delivery of materials prior to the actual work. This allows us to begin and finish the project in time.


Step 2: Build Concrete Forms and reinforce Concrete Slabs with Steel

Once the area is cleaned up, we construct concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers holding concrete mix in place. They also force wet concrete to take on a specific shape or design. Concrete reinforced by rebar can be used for bigger structures. This allows for stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

A concrete truck is utilized to simplify the process. Concrete materials can be mixed more effectively with the help of a concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of cases we make use of the concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete we immediately place a concrete slab on the forms. We pour the concrete mixture carefully to avoid creating air pockets. Air pockets are created because there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, we make sure we evenly distribute the mix across the form - never missing one spot.
