What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a typical construction element used in building. Concrete slabs are a thick, flat, horizontal concrete floor which is often used as a roof or floor. Concrete slabs, laid on top of the soil or on foundations supporting them and are used to build the ground floor for some homes.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is difficult when you don't have the necessary knowledge and experience. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors utilize strict procedures for concrete slab installation that follows codes and standards of the industry.


Safety is our top priority when we work on concrete construction projects. Before we start any work, we make sure that we are properly outfitted with safety gear. Eye protection and long sleeves, or long pants rubber boots, gloves or rubber shoes are all necessary. All of these safeguards protect us from concrete splashes that can damage our overall health and well being.


Similar to previously, we now follow the steps below:


Step 1: Preparation on site

We all follow the same procedure regardless of how big a project we are working on. All projects start with preparing the area. We tidy up and get rid of garbage so we can begin from scratch. In the course of our preparation process we make sure that everything is on site. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the actual project begins. This allows us finish the project within the timeframe we have set.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and strengthen concrete slabs using steel

Once the site has been cleaned and ready to be used Wire mesh is used to install concrete forms. Concrete forms function as a solid barrier to keep the concrete mix in its position. Concrete forms can also allow concrete mix to take on a specific shape or style. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete for larger structures. This allows for more durable concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

A concrete truck is utilized to simplify the process. It ensures that concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. For most projects, however the use of a concrete mixer is likely to be required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we pour it into the forms. We pour the concrete mixture carefully so as to not create air pockets. Air pockets are created because there isn't enough mortar to fill in the spaces around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, we ensure that we spread the mix over the form. We do not leave a gap.
