What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are an essential building element that is used as a structural component. It is a large flat horizontal concrete slab used to build floors and roofs. Concrete slabs are used to build the ground flooring in some homes. They can be laid directly on the ground or used as a support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is challenging if one doesn't have the required skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows the strict procedure for installing concrete slabs.


Safety is the top priority for all concrete projects. Before beginning any project, we ensure that we have all necessary safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves and long pants, rubber boots, gloves and gloves form parts of our safety gear. All of these safeguard us from concrete splashes which could harm our overall health and well-being.


Follow these steps in addition.


Step 1: Preparation on site

We follow the same procedure regardless of whether working on a small slab or big project. Every project begins with the preparation of the area. We tidy up and remove all waste so that it is possible to start again. As part of the preparation process it is essential that all the necessary materials are on-site. We plan the delivery of materials prior to actual work. This helps us complete the project within the timeframe we have set.


Step 2: Make Concrete Forms and Reinforce Concrete Slab with Steel

Once the site has been cleared and prepared, we'll begin the process of installing concrete forms constructed of wire mesh. Concrete forms function as a solid wall to help hold the concrete mix in its place. It also forces wet concrete to conform to a certain shape or design. We use rebar to strengthen concrete structures that are larger. This allows the concrete surface is more durable.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to speed up the process. It also helps in ensuring concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Concrete mixers are required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we immediately place a concrete slab on the forms. It is essential to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there are not excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets result from the mortar not being fully filled with the aggregate. As we pour concrete, we make sure we spread the mix throughout the form, never leaving a single spot.
