What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a common structural element in structures. It is a thick, flat, horizontal concrete surface typically used for the floor or roof. Concrete slabs, which are placed on the soil directly or on foundations supporting them and are used to build the ground floor for some homes.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is a challenge when one does not have the required skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors utilize strict procedures for concrete slab installation that follows the industry's standards and codes.


Safety is the top priority when we work on concrete projects. Before any project is started we ensure that we use the appropriate safety equipment. We wear gloves long sleeves as well as rubber boots and gloves to protect our eyes. All of these help protect us from concrete splashes which can harm our overall health, and well-being.


The steps listed below are to be followed as part of the process.


Step 1: Prepare on-site

Whatever the size or big the project is, we adhere to the same procedure. We always begin by clearing the site for all the projects we do. We tidy the area and dispose of debris so that we can begin with a clean slate. We ensure that all materials are prepared for use during the preparation phase. The delivery of materials is planned prior to when actually work can begin. This lets us finish the work on time.


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

Once the site is clean and ready, we move on by putting in concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms force concrete to conform to a specific shape or form. For bigger structures, we utilize rebar to reinforce concrete. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To facilitate the process to make it easier, we employ a concrete truck. Concrete materials are mixed more efficiently by using an concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed for the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete then the concrete slab is poured into the forms. Be careful as we pour the concrete mix to avoid creating too many air pockets. Air pockets occur because there isn't enough mortar to fill in the spaces around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we evenly spread the mix over the form. We do not miss a spot.
