What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a common structural element in buildings. A concrete slab is an extremely thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer, which can be utilized as a floor or as roofing. Concrete slabs, laid directly on the ground or on support foundations, are used to create the ground floor for some homes.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be complicated if your skills and knowledge are not up to the task. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to a strict concrete slab installation procedure that is in line with local codes and industry standards.


Safety is our top priority when working on concrete projects. Before we begin any project we ensure that we use the appropriate safety equipment. Eye protection Long sleeves, long pants rubber boots, gloves or rubber shoes, are all essential. They protect us from concrete splashes that can affect our overall health and well-being.


Following the same process as previously, we now follow these steps:


Step 1: Preparation on-site

We follow the exact same procedure regardless of the size concrete slab we're working on. We always start by preparing the site for all the tasks we carry out. We clean up all evidence of contamination so that we can begin fresh. In preparation we make sure that all the necessary materials are at the location. We schedule the delivery of all items prior to actual work. This ensures that we can complete the project within the timeline we have set.


Step 2: Make Concrete Forms and reinforce Concrete Slabs with Steel

Once everything is clean and tidy, we begin to install concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers holding concrete mix in the right place. They also force wet concrete to assume a particular shape or shape. Rebar is a method of strengthening concrete for larger structures. This allows for more durable concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us to make it easier, we employ the concrete truck. Concrete materials are mixed more efficiently using a concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of cases we make use of an concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete has been mixed, we immediately put a concrete slab into the form. We do it carefully when pouring the concrete mix in order to ensure that we do not create too many air pockets. Air pockets result from too much mortar not being put around the aggregate. We make sure that the concrete mix is evenly distributed across the shape.
