What is Concrete Slabs?


A concrete slab is a very popular structural element for buildings. Concrete slabs are a dense horizontal, flat concrete floor that is typically used as a roof or floor. Concrete slabs are employed to construct the floor of some residential structures. They can be laid directly on the soil or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation isn't for those with weak hearts. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to strict construction of concrete slabs procedure that is strictly adhered to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is the top goal for all concrete projects. When a project begins we ensure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. We use gloves, long sleeves as well as rubber boots and gloves to protect our eyes. All of these safeguards protect us from concrete splashes that can damage our overall health and well being.


Follow the steps listed below as part of the procedure:


Step 1: Preparation at the site

We always follow the same method, no matter what size project we are working on. The preparation of the site is the very first stage in all of our projects. We clean up and get rid of garbage so we can begin on a clean slate. As part of the preparation we make sure that all materials are on site. The transportation of materials is planned prior to when actually work can begin. This helps us complete the project within the timeline we have set.


Step 2: Form Concrete Forms using Steel and reinforce Concrete Slabs using Steel

After the area has been cleared and cleared, we'll proceed to the installation of concrete forms that are made of wire mesh. Concrete forms work as a solid blockage to keep the concrete mix in its position. It also forces wet concrete to conform to a certain shape or design. For larger structures, we use the rebar method to reinforce concrete. This allows for stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks simplify life. It ensures that concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. But in most of our projects the use of a concrete mixer is a must.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we've mixed the concrete, we immediately pour the concrete slab into our forms. It is important to do this carefully so that there aren't excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets can be caused by too little mortar in the gaps surrounding the aggregate. When we pour concrete, it is essential that we evenly distribute the mix across the form, not missing any one area.
