What are Concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a common structural element in construction. Concrete slabs are a thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer that can be utilized as a floor or even as roofing. Concrete slabs are utilized to construct the floor of some residential structures. They can be laid directly on the soil or as support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation can be difficult if one doesn't have the necessary abilities. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to strict construction of concrete slabs process that strictly follows local codes and industry standards.


Safety is a top priority in all the concrete work we undertake. Prior to starting any project, we ensure we are equipped with all the necessary safety equipment. We wear gloves and long sleeves, as well as long pants and rubber boots. These all help to keep us safe from concrete splashes that could affect our health and well-being.


The steps below must be strictly adhered to as part of the process.


Step 1: Prepare on-site

We use the same process regardless of whether we are working on a small slab or big project. Every project begins with the preparation of the area. To get started clean up any debris and clean the site. As part of our preparation we ensure that all materials are present on the job site. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the actual construction. This allows us to start and complete the work in time.


Step 2: Reinforce concrete slab with steel and construct concrete forms.

After the area has been cleared and prepared, we'll begin the process of installing concrete forms made with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that keep the concrete mix in place. They create solid and holds the concrete mix in place. For bigger structures, we utilize rebar to reinforce concrete. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make life easier. This ensures the concrete material is properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing the concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is poured into the form. It is important to take care that there are not too many air pockets when pouring concrete. Air pockets arise from the mortar not being positioned on top of the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we evenly spread the mix over the shape. We never miss a spot.
