What is concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is a very popular structural element used in building construction. Concrete slabs are thin, flat horizontal concrete surface that's used for flooring or roofing. Concrete slabs are utilized to build the ground floor of some residential structures. Concrete slabs can be positioned directly on the ground or used as a support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs can be a challenge when you don't have the experience and skills for them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows a strict concrete slab construction procedure that is strictly adhered to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is a first priority for us in all of the concrete work we undertake. Prior to starting any project, we ensure that we have all necessary safety equipment. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long pants rubber boots, and gloves. All these protect us from concrete splashes that could affect our overall health and well-being.


For the procedure, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1: Onsite preparation

We follow the same method, whether it's a small concrete slab or a larger one. Every project we work on starts by preparing the area. We tidy the area and dispose of garbage so we can begin with a clean slate. As part of our pre-planning we ensure that all materials are present at the location. We plan for the delivery of the material prior to when we begin the actual work. This allows us the ability to start and complete the project on-time.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and strengthen concrete slabs with steel

Once everything is clean and tidy We can begin installing concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers which hold the concrete mixture in place. Concrete forms force wet concrete to adopt a certain shape or form. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete structures that are larger. This makes concrete stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks simplify life. Concrete materials can be mixed more efficiently with the help of a concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of our projects mixing concrete, a mixer is a must.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we pour the concrete into the forms. It's important that we do the concrete mix with care to avoid air pockets. Air pockets can form when there is not enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we evenly distribute the mix throughout the form. We do not leave a gap.
