What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a popular structural element of construction. A concrete slab is an extremely thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer, which can be utilized as a floor or even as roofing. Concrete slabs are employed in some residential structures to help support the foundation or directly on the earth.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation can be a challenge when one does not have the required abilities. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows the strict process of installing concrete slabs.


Safety is the top priority when working on concrete construction projects. Before we begin any work, we ensure we equip ourselves with safety gear. We wear eye protection, long sleeves, long trousers rubber boots, and gloves. These all help to protect us from concrete splashes which can cause harm to our overall health and well-being.


Follow the steps listed below as part of the process:


Step 1: Preparation for the site

We all follow the same procedure, no matter what size project it is. Cleaning the area is the initial step in all of our projects. We clean up all evidence of contamination so that we can begin from scratch. As part the preparation process it is essential that all the necessary materials are at the site. We plan the delivery of the materials before we begin the actual work. This allows us to begin and finish the project in time.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and reinforce concrete slabs using steel

After everything is clean and tidy, we begin to install concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms are sturdy barriers that help hold concrete mix in the right place. They also force concrete that is wet to conform to a certain shape or form. Rebar is used for strengthening concrete for larger structures. This ensures the concrete surface is stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To facilitate the process for us, we utilize a concrete truck. It also helps ensure concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, concrete mixers are required for projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing the concrete, the concrete slab is poured into the form. To prevent air pockets, we carefully pour the concrete mix. Air pockets occur because there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. Concrete is poured by making sure it is evenly distributed across the form.
