What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is a large part of the structural elements in buildings. A concrete slab is a flat, thick horizontal concrete surface which is used to construct the construction of a roof or floor. Concrete slabs are employed to build the ground floor in some residential buildings. They can be placed directly on the soil or used as a support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be difficult when you don't have the knowledge and experience required for it. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows the strict process of installing concrete slabs.


Safety is the first priority for us in all of the concrete work we undertake. Before we begin any project, we make sure that we are equipped with safety equipment. We have gloves, long sleeves, long pants and rubber boots. All of these safeguard us against concrete splashes.


We follow the steps listed below as an integral part of our process:


Step 1: Preparation on site

No matter how small or huge the project may be no matter how big or small, we will use the same method for all projects. We for all projects, make sure the site is prepared. We clear away all traces of contamination so that we can start fresh. As part of the preparation process the materials should be present on site. We plan for the arrival of the material prior to when we start the actual work. This helps us complete the work on time.


Step 2: Make Concrete Forms using Steel and Reinforce Concrete Slabs with Steel

Once the site is clean and prepared, we begin by putting in concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold concrete mix in the right place. It forces concrete mix to take a particular form or design. Rebar is used to strengthen concrete for larger structures. This will ensure that concrete surfaces are stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us, we use a concrete truck. It also helps in ensuring that concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Most of the time, however we make use of the concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete then the concrete slab is poured into the form. It's crucial that we make the concrete mix in a careful manner to prevent air pockets. Air pockets can be created by a lack of mortar being used in the spaces around the aggregate. We make sure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed across the form.
