What are Concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is a popular structural element of buildings. It is a thick flat, horizontal concrete surface typically used for an area for flooring or as a roof. Concrete slabs, which are laid on top of the soil or on foundations for support and are used to build the floor of some residential buildings.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is challenging for those who don't possess the required skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to strict concrete slab installation procedures that are in line with industry standards and local codes.


Safety is the top priority for all our concrete projects. Before we begin any work, we ensure we equip ourselves with safety equipment. We use gloves, long sleeves with rubber boots, gloves and rubber to protect our eyes. These safeguard us from concrete splashes which could be harmful to our health and well-being.


We strictly follow the steps listed below as a part of the process:


Step 1: Preparation on-site

No matter how small or huge the project may be We follow the same process. The first step is to prepare the site for any projects we undertake. We clear away all traces of contamination to allow us to begin fresh. As part of the preparation we ensure that all the materials are available. We plan the delivery of materials prior to actual construction. This allows us to begin and finish the project on-time.


Step 2: Make Concrete Forms and Reinforce Concrete Slab with Steel

After the site has been cleaned, we will construct concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that keep concrete mix in position. It makes concrete form an solid block that keeps the concrete mix in place. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete to support larger structures. Concrete surfaces are strengthened by this.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to speed up the process. Concrete materials are mixed more efficiently with a concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed in the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we are done mixing concrete then the concrete slab is then poured into the molds. It is essential to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there aren't too many air pockets while pouring concrete. The formation of air pockets results from there being insufficient mortar to fill the spaces around the aggregate. Concrete is poured by making sure the mortar is evenly distributed throughout the shape.
