What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab makes up the majority of construction elements of buildings. Concrete slabs are an extremely thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer that can be utilized as a floor or as a roof. Concrete slabs that are laid on top of the soil or on foundations for support which are used to construct the floor of some homes.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is difficult if you don’t have the required knowledge and expertise. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors utilize a strict concrete slab-installation process that is in line with the industry's standards and codes.


In all our concrete projects, safety is a top priority. We make sure that we are equipped with necessary safety equipment prior to we begin any project. Eye protection, long sleeves, long pants, rubber boots gloves and gloves are all components of our safety equipment. All of them protect us against concrete splashes.


In the same way as before, we will follow the steps below:


Step 1 - Preparation on the spot

We follow the exact process no matter what size concrete slab project we're working on. Every project begins with the preparation of the site. To begin fresh we tidy up and get rid of any trash. As part of the preparation we make sure that all the materials are available. We schedule the delivery of all items prior to actual work. This allows us start and finish the project in time.


Step 2: Create Concrete Forms and Reinforce Concrete Slab 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 function as a solid wall to keep the concrete mix in its position. Concrete forms can also make concrete mix take on a specific shape or style. We use rebar to strengthen concrete in larger structures. This makes concrete stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make things much simpler. It is also useful in ensuring that concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we are done mixing concrete, we immediately pour the concrete slab into our forms. It is essential to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there aren't too many air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets can be created due to a lack of mortar in the gaps surrounding the aggregate. Concrete is poured by making sure the mortar is evenly distributed throughout the form.
