What are Concrete slabs?


A concrete slab makes up the majority of construction elements of buildings. Concrete slabs are the thick, flat, and horizontal concrete layer, which can be utilized as a floor or even as a roof. More so, concrete slabs are used to construct the ground flooring of some homes as a foundation support foundation or directly on the soil.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation is not for those with weak hearts. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to a strict concrete slab installation procedure that conforms to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is the paramount concern in all of our concrete projects. Before we start any work, we make sure that we are properly equipped with safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves, long pants, rubber boots, gloves, and gloves form parts of our safety gear. All these protections protect us from concrete splashes that can cause damage to our overall health and well-being.


The steps listed below are to be adhered to as part of the procedure.


Step 1: Preparation for the Site

Whatever small or huge the project may be no matter how big or small, we will adhere to the same procedure. Preparing the site is the very first stage in all of our projects. We tidy up and remove any waste that is left to make it possible for us to start over. We make sure that all the necessary materials are readily available as part of the preparation. The delivery of materials is planned prior to when actually work can begin. This allows us to start and complete the work in time.


Step 2: Make Concrete Forms using Steel, and Reinforce Concrete Slabs by Steel

Once the site is clean and ready, we proceed by putting in concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms create solid and holds the concrete mix. In the case of larger structures, we use rebar to reinforce concrete. This ensures the concrete surface is more sturdy.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To facilitate the process, we use a concrete truck. Concrete materials can be mixed more effectively using an concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After we have finished mixing concrete, we put the concrete slab in our molds. It is essential to do this carefully so that there aren't excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets occur because there isn't enough mortar available to fill the spaces surrounding the aggregate. When pouring concrete, we ensure that we evenly distribute the mix across the form, not missing one spot.
