What is Concrete Slabs?


A concrete slab is a popular structural element of structures. Concrete slabs are a thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer that is used as a floor, or as a roof. Concrete slabs are used in some residential structures for support of the foundation or directly on earth.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be tricky if you don't have the knowledge and skills for them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to strict concrete slab installation procedures that are in line with industry standards and local codes.


Safety is our top priority when working on concrete construction projects. We ensure that we've got all the necessary safety equipment before we start any project. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long trousers, rubber boots, and gloves. They protect us from concrete splashes which could affect our health and well-being.


The steps below must be strictly followed as part of the procedure.


Step 1: Preparation for the Site

We follow the same process regardless of whether it's a smaller concrete slab project or a larger one. Every project we undertake starts by preparing the site. We remove all trace of contamination to allow us to begin from scratch. We ensure that all the necessary materials are readily available during the process of preparation. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the actual work. This allows us to start and complete the work in time.


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

After the area has been cleaned and ready to be used Wire mesh is used to construct concrete forms. Concrete forms are solid blocks that keep concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force concrete to conform to a specific shape or design. Rebar reinforced concrete can be used for bigger structures. This helps ensure stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to help make life easier. It ensures that the concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of cases we employ a concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we are done mixing concrete, we put the concrete slab in our forms. We pour the concrete mix carefully so as to not create air pockets. Air pockets are caused by excessive mortar being placed over the aggregate. Concrete is made by ensuring that it is evenly distributed throughout the shape.
