What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is the majority of construction elements of buildings. Concrete slabs are thin, flat, horizontal concrete surface that's used for a floor or roof. Concrete slabs are utilized to construct the floor in some residential buildings. Concrete slabs can be placed directly on the ground or used as a support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is challenging when you don't have the required knowledge and expertise. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to the strict process of installing concrete slabs.


In all of our concrete construction projects the safety of our customers is a top priority. Before starting any project, we make sure that we are equipped with safety gear. We wear eye protection, long sleeves, long trousers rubber gloves, and boots. All of these keep us safe from concrete splatters that can affect our health and overall well-being.


In the same way as previously, we now follow the steps below:


Step 1: Preparation at the site

We follow the same process regardless of whether it's a tiny concrete slab project or a bigger one. Each project starts by preparing the site. We clean up and get rid of garbage so we can begin with a clean slate. In preparation we make sure that all the necessary materials are on the job site. We plan the delivery of the material prior to when we begin the actual work. This allows us finish the work within the deadline we have established.


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

Once the site is cleared and prepared, we will move on to the installation of concrete forms constructed of wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold concrete mix in position. Concrete forms force concrete to take on a particular shape or form. As for larger structures, we use rebar to reinforce concrete. This allows concrete surfaces that are more durable.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

A concrete truck is utilized to speed up the process. It is also useful in ensuring that concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. In most cases, however, we use the concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete has been mixed, we then put a concrete slab into the forms. To avoid air pockets, we cautiously pour the concrete mix. The existence of air pockets results from there being insufficient mortar to fill the gaps around the aggregate. We ensure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed throughout the shape.
