What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is an extremely popular structural component of construction. Concrete slabs are thick and flat horizontal concrete floor which is often used for roofing or as a floor. Concrete slabs are used to construct the flooring in some homes. They can be placed directly on the ground or as support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is a challenge when one does not have the right abilities. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to the strict process of installing concrete slabs.


Safety is an important factor in all of the concrete projects we work on. Before starting any project we ensure we have all necessary safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves or long pants and rubber gloves, are all essential. These all protect us from concrete splashes, that could affect our overall health and well-being.


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


Step 1: Preparation at the site

No matter how small or large the project, we use the same method for all projects. Every project we undertake starts by preparing the site. To start fresh, we clean up and dispose of any waste. We make sure that all the necessary materials are readily available in preparation. The transportation of materials is planned prior to when the actual work starts. This lets us begin and finish the project in the quickest time.


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

Once the site is clean and prepared, we begin with the installation of concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are strong barriers that keep concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force concrete to adopt a certain shape or design. For concrete reinforcement using reinforced concrete, we mix it by using rebar. This makes concrete stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to simplify life. This ensures that concrete materials are mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. For most projects, however an concrete mixer will be required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we are done mixing concrete, the concrete slab is poured into the form. It is crucial to take care that there are not excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets can be caused by lack of mortar filled with aggregate. Concrete is created by spreading the mix uniformly across the form.
