What is Concrete Slabs?


A concrete slab can be utilized as a structural component to build structures. Concrete slabs are a thick horizontal, flat concrete floor which is often used for roofing or as a floor. Concrete slabs are utilized to construct the floor in some residential buildings. Concrete slabs can be placed directly on the ground or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be complicated when your experience and skills are not sufficient for the task. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to strict construction of concrete slabs process that strictly follows local codes as well as industry standards.


Safety is the top goal for all concrete projects. Before we begin any project we ensure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long trousers rubber boots and gloves. They protect us from concrete splashes which could cause harm to our overall health and well-being.


The following steps are strictly followed as part of the procedure.


Step 1: On-site Preparation

We always follow the same method regardless of how big a project you are working on. Cleaning the site is the first step in all our projects. To begin fresh we tidy up and get rid of any trash. We make sure the materials are on site during the process of preparation. We schedule the arrival of the materials prior to the actual work. This helps us complete the project within the timeframe.


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

After the area is cleaned and ready to be installed, we use wire mesh to construct concrete forms. Concrete forms are strong barriers that help keep the concrete mix in place. Concrete forms allow concrete mix to assume a certain shape or design. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete to support larger structures. This makes concrete surfaces stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to help make life easier. This makes sure that concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. For most projects, however an concrete mixer will be required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is poured into the form. The concrete mixture is poured carefully so as to not create air pockets. Air pockets can form when there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. As we pour concrete, we make sure we distribute the mix evenly across the form, not missing any one area.
