What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a typical structural element in buildings. It is a thick and flat horizontal concrete surface that is typically used as the floor or roof. Concrete slabs can be used to construct the foundation of residential buildings or on the ground or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be tricky when you don't have the knowledge and experience required for it. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to the strict procedure for installing concrete slabs.


Safety is an important factor in all of the concrete projects we work on. Before we begin any work, we make sure that we're outfitted with safety gear. We wear eye protection, long sleeves, long trousers, rubber gloves, and boots. All these protections protect us from concrete splashes that can cause damage to our overall health and well being.


The steps below must be strictly adhered to as part of the procedure.


Step 1 - Preparation on the spot

We all follow the same procedure, no matter what size project you are working on. Cleaning the site is the first step in all our projects. In order to begin we take care to clear all debris and clean the area. In preparation, we ensure that all the materials are available on the job site. We plan the delivery of materials before the actual project begins. This lets us begin and complete the project in a the quickest time.


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

When the area is clean and ready, we move on with the construction of concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that keep concrete mix in position. Concrete forms force concrete to conform to a specific shape or design. Rebar is a method of strengthening concrete structures that are larger. This makes concrete stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To make it easier for us, we utilize the concrete truck. This makes sure that concrete materials are correctly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing the concrete then the concrete slab is poured into the forms. Be careful as we pour the concrete mix to avoid creating too many air pockets. The presence of air pockets result from there being insufficient mortar to fill the gaps around the aggregate. Concrete is made by ensuring that the mortar is evenly distributed throughout the shape.
