What is Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs are a common building element that is used as a structural component. It is a thick flat, horizontal concrete surface usually used as the floor or roof. More so concrete slabs are employed to build the flooring of some homes as a support for the foundation, or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be complicated when your experience and skills are not sufficient for the job. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors employ a strict concrete slab-installation process that adheres to the industry's standards and codes.


In all of our concrete projects, safety is a top priority. Before we start any work, we ensure that we're properly outfitted with safety gear. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long pants rubber gloves, and boots. These safeguard us from concrete splashes that can be harmful to our health and well-being.


We follow the steps below as part of the process:


Step 1 - Preparation on the spot

We use the same procedure regardless of whether it's a tiny concrete slab or a bigger one. We for all projects, prepare the site. To begin fresh we tidy up and get rid of any trash. In the course of our preparation we ensure that all materials are on site. We plan the arrival of the materials prior to the actual project. This allows us to begin and complete the project in a the quickest time.


Step 2 Step 2: Reinforce concrete slabs with steel and construct concrete forms

Once the site is cleaned and is ready to be used Wire mesh is used to install concrete forms. Concrete forms are strong barriers that keep concrete mix in the right place. They also force concrete that is wet to take on a specific shape or design. As for larger structures, we employ rebar to reinforce concrete. This allows for stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

A concrete truck is used to speed up the process. It helps ensure concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. For the majority of projects the use of a concrete mixer is likely to be required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is poured into the forms. It is crucial to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there are not too many air pockets when pouring concrete. Air pockets are created when there is not enough mortar available to fill the gaps around the aggregate. Concrete is produced by spreading the mix uniformly across the shape.
