What are Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs are a common structural element in buildings. A concrete slab is a flat, thick horizontal concrete surface that is utilized for a floor or roof. Concrete slabs are employed to construct the floor of some residential structures. Concrete slabs can be placed directly on the ground or used as a support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation isn't for the faint of heart. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors use strict procedures for concrete slab installation that is in line with codes and standards of the industry.


Our top priority is safety when working on concrete construction projects. Prior to starting any project, we ensure that we have all necessary safety equipment. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long trousers, rubber boots, and gloves. All of these protect us from concrete splashes which can cause harm to our overall health and overall well-being.


The steps listed below are to be performed as part of the process.


Step 1: Onsite Preparation

We follow the exact same process no matter what size concrete slab we're working on. Cleaning the area is the initial stage in all of our projects. In order to begin clean up any garbage and tidy up the site. As part of our preparation we ensure that all the necessary materials are on the job site. The transportation of materials is planned prior to when the actual work starts. This allows us to complete the project on schedule.


Step 2: Make Concrete Forms and Reinforce Concrete Slab with Steel

Once the site is cleaned, we can put in concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms function as a solid wall to hold the concrete mix in position. They create an solid block that keeps the concrete mix in place. Rebar is a method of strengthening concrete in larger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

We employ a concrete truck to help us with our work. This helps to ensure that concrete materials are correctly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. But, the majority of concrete mixers are needed for projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we immediately put a concrete slab in the molds. It's crucial that we make the concrete mix in a careful manner to prevent air pockets. Air pockets can form because there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. When making concrete, we make sure that we distribute the mix throughout the shape. We never fail to fill a space.
