What is Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs are used as a structural element in buildings. Concrete slabs are a dense, flat, horizontal concrete floor which is usually used as a roof or floor. Concrete slabs, laid on top of the soil or on support foundations which are used to construct the ground floor for some residential structures.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation can be difficult if your skills and knowledge are not up to the job. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors employ an exact concrete slab-installation procedure that adheres to the industry's standards and codes.


Safety is a priority for all the concrete projects we work on. Before beginning any project, we ensure that we have the proper safety equipment. We put on gloves long sleeves as well as rubber boots and gloves to shield our eyes. All of these protect us from concrete splashes.


We follow these steps as well.


Step 1: Preparation on-site

We use the same process regardless of whether we are working on a small slab or large project. Each project we take on begins with the preparation of the site. We clean up and eliminate any waste that is left to make it possible for us to start over. As part of our preparation we ensure that all the materials are available at the location. We schedule delivery of items prior to actual work. This allows us the ability to begin and finish the project on-time.


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

After the site has been cleaned and ready to be installed, we use wire mesh to install concrete forms. Concrete forms are strong barriers holding concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force wet concrete to take on a particular shape or design. Rebar is used to strengthen concrete structures that are larger. This allows for more durable concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

We employ a concrete truck to help us with our work. Concrete materials can be mixed more effectively with a concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed for the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete has been mixed, we then pour concrete into the form. It is important to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there aren't too many air pockets when pouring concrete. The presence of air pockets results from lack of mortar to fill the gaps around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, we ensure that we evenly distribute the mix throughout the shape. We do not leave a gap.
