What are Concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is a large part of the building's structural components. It is a large flat, horizontal concrete surface typically used for the floor or roof. Concrete slabs can be used to construct the foundation of houses or on the ground or supporting the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation isn't for those with weak hearts. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows the strict process of installing concrete slabs.


Our top priority is safety when we work on concrete construction projects. Prior to starting any project, we make sure that we are equipped with security equipment. We wear eye protection, long sleeves, long trousers rubber boots, and gloves. All of these help keep us safe from concrete splashes which can affect our health and well-being.


Follow the steps below as part of the procedure:


Step 1: Preparation for the Site

We use the same procedure, whether it's a small concrete slab project or a bigger one. We for all projects, make sure the site is prepared. We tidy up and remove any waste that is left in order for us to start over. We ensure that all materials are ready to be used during the preparation phase. We plan for the arrival of the material prior to when we begin the actual work. This allows us to complete the work on time.


Step 2 - Build concrete forms and reinforce concrete slabs with steel

Once the site has been cleared and prepared, we will move on to the installation of concrete forms constructed of wire mesh. Concrete forms are sturdy barriers that help hold concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms force concrete to conform to a specific shape or design. Rebar reinforced concrete can be used for bigger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks simplify life. Concrete materials can be mixed more efficiently by using a concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Concrete mixers are required for the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we are done mixing concrete, we then pour the concrete slab into our molds. It is crucial to do the concrete mix with care to avoid air pockets. Air pockets are caused by too little mortar in the gaps around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we evenly disperse the mix across the form. We never fail to fill a space.
