What is Concrete Slabs?


A concrete slab makes up an important portion of structural elements in buildings. Concrete slabs are a thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer that is utilized as a floor or as roofing. More so concrete slabs are utilized to construct the ground floor of some residential buildings as a foundation support foundation, or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs can be a challenge when your experience and skills aren't up to the job. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follow a strict concrete slab installation process that adheres to the local code and standards of industry.


Safety is a top priority in all our concrete projects. Before we start any work, we ensure that we're properly outfitted with safety gear. Eye protection, long sleeves and long pants, rubber boots gloves, and gloves are all part of our safety equipment. These all protect us from concrete splashes that could affect our overall health and well-being.


These steps are followed as well.


Step 1: Onsite preparation

We follow the same process regardless of whether it's a smaller concrete slab or a larger one. Each project starts by preparing the area. We clear away all traces of contamination to allow us to begin from scratch. As part the preparation process the materials should be present on site. We schedule the arrival of materials before the actual work begins. This allows us start and finish the project in time.


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

After everything is tidy and clean We can begin installing concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers which keep the concrete mix in place. It forces concrete mix to adopt a particular shape or design. Rebar reinforced concrete is available for larger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make life easier. Concrete materials can be mixed more effectively by using an concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of cases we employ an concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete is mixed, we pour a concrete slab in the forms. We pour the concrete mix carefully so as to not create air pockets. Air pockets are created when there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. Concrete is made by ensuring that the mortar is evenly distributed across the shape.
