What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is a very popular structural element in buildings. It is a flat, thick horizontal concrete slab used to build floors and roofs. More so concrete slabs are utilized to build the floor of some residential buildings as a foundation support foundation or directly on the soil.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is difficult if one doesn't have the required abilities. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follow an exact concrete slab installation procedure that is in line with local codes and industry standards.


Safety is the first priority for us in all of our concrete projects. Prior to beginning any work, we ensure that we are properly outfitted with safety gear. We are equipped with gloves and long sleeves, as well as long pants and rubber boots. All these protect us from concrete splashes, which could harm our overall health and well-being.


As with the process, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1 - Onsite Preparation

We use the same procedure no matter the size of concrete slab project we're working on. Preparing the site is the very first step in all of our projects. We clean up all evidence of contamination to allow us to begin fresh. In the process of preparing, all materials must be present on site. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the time we begin actual work. This helps us complete the project within the timeline we have established.


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

Once everything is tidy and clean, we begin to install concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold concrete mix in position. Concrete forms force concrete mix to assume a certain shape or design. Rebar is used for strengthening concrete structures that are larger. This helps concrete surfaces become stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make the process simpler. It ensures that concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. In the majority of projects mixing concrete, a mixer is a must.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing the concrete, the concrete slab is poured into the form. To avoid air pockets, we cautiously apply the mix of concrete. The presence of air pockets results from not enough mortar filling the spaces surrounding the aggregate. Concrete is made by ensuring that the mortar is evenly distributed across the form.
