What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component used in building construction. It is a large flat horizontal concrete slab which is used to construct floors and roofs. Concrete slabs can be used to construct the ground floor of houses, either on the soil or as a foundation.



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 an exact concrete slab installation procedure that is in line with the local code and standards of industry.


Safety is the top priority in all of the concrete projects we work on. Before any project is started it is made sure that we have the right safety equipment. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long pants rubber gloves, and boots. These safeguard us from concrete splashes that can cause harm to our overall health or well-being.


We strictly follow the steps listed below as an integral part of our process:


Step 1: Onsite Preparation

Whatever small or big the project is no matter how big or small, we will adhere to the same procedure. Each project starts by preparing the site. To start fresh we tidy up and get rid of any trash. We ensure that all materials are prepared to be used in the process of preparation. We schedule the arrival of the material prior to the start of work begins. This helps us complete the project within the timeframe.


Step 2: Form Concrete Forms with Steel and Reinforce Concrete Slabs with Steel

Once the site is cleaned and ready for installation, we use wire mesh to set concrete forms. Concrete forms are strong barriers that help keep concrete mix in its place. Concrete forms force wet concrete to conform to a specific shape or form. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete for larger structures. This helps concrete surfaces become stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us to make it easier, we employ a concrete truck. It is also useful in ensuring concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. But in most of our projects, a concrete mixer is essential.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete has been mixed, we immediately pour a concrete slab in the forms. We pour the concrete mixture carefully to avoid creating air pockets. The presence of air pockets is due to not enough mortar filling the spaces surrounding the aggregate. We make sure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed throughout the form.
