What is concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are used as a structural element for buildings. It is a thick flat horizontal concrete slab which is used to construct floors and roofs. Concrete slabs are employed in some homes to help support the foundation or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation isn't for the faint of heart. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows a strict concrete slab construction process that strictly follows local codes as well as industry standards.


Safety is the top priority in all our concrete projects. Before we begin any project we ensure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves, long pants, rubber boots, gloves, and gloves form part of our safety equipment. These all help to safeguard us from concrete splatters that can harm our overall health, and well-being.


For the procedure, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1: Onsite preparation

We use the same procedure regardless of whether it's a smaller concrete slab project or a larger one. We always start by preparing the area for any projects we do. We tidy up and get rid of debris so that we can begin with a clean slate. As part of our pre-planning we make sure that all the materials are available on the site. We schedule the delivery of all materials ahead of actual work. This allows us to complete the project within the timeframe.


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

After the area has been cleared and prepared, we will begin the process of installing concrete forms that are made of wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that keep concrete mix in its place. They also force concrete that is wet to take on a specific shape or design. To strengthen concrete we make use of reinforced concrete using rebar. This ensures the concrete surface is more sturdy.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us to make it easier, we employ the concrete truck. Concrete materials are mixed more efficiently by using an concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed for the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we are done mixing concrete, we pour the concrete slab into our forms. It's important that we do the concrete mix in a careful manner to prevent air pockets. Air pockets are caused by the mortar not being positioned around the aggregate. We ensure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed throughout the shape.
