What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a popular structural element of construction. It is a large and flat horizontal concrete surface usually used as a floor or a roof. Concrete slabs are utilized in certain residential buildings for support of the foundation or directly on earth.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation isn't for those with weak hearts. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows a strict concrete slab construction procedure that is strictly adhered to local codes and industry standards.


In all of our concrete projects, safety is a top priority. Before we begin any work, we ensure that we're equipped with safety equipment. We wear eye protection, long sleeves, long trousers, rubber boots, and gloves. They protect us from concrete splashes which could cause harm to our overall health or well-being.


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


Step 1: Prepare on-site

We follow the same process regardless of whether it's a tiny concrete slab project or a bigger one. Every project we work on starts with the preparation of the area. We tidy the area and dispose of debris so that we can begin with a clean slate. We ensure all materials are prepared to use during the preparation phase. We plan for the delivery of the materials prior to the time we start the actual work. This allows us finish the work within the deadline we have established.


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

After the site is cleaned and ready, we move on with the construction of concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers which hold the concrete mixture in the right place. They also force wet concrete to take on a specific shape or form. For larger structures, we employ the rebar method to reinforce concrete. This helps to ensure the concrete surface is more sturdy.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks simplify life. This makes sure the concrete material is correctly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed for the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we've mixed the concrete, we immediately put the concrete slab in our forms. We pour the concrete mix carefully to avoid creating air pockets. Air pockets are caused by the mortar not being placed on top of the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we evenly disperse the mix across the shape. We do not miss a spot.
