What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a common structural element in structures. Concrete slabs are a thick, flat, horizontal concrete floor which is usually utilized as a roof or floor. Concrete slabs are utilized to build the ground flooring in some homes. They can be laid directly on the soil or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs can be a challenge If you're not equipped with the knowledge and skills for them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to strict concrete slab installation practices that conform to industry standards as well as local codes.


Safety is the top priority for any concrete project. Before starting any project we ensure we have the proper safety equipment. We put on gloves, long sleeves with rubber boots, gloves and rubber to shield our eyes. These protections shield us from concrete splatters that could harm our health overall and well being.


The steps below must be strictly adhered to as part of the process.


Step 1: Preparation on site

We follow the exact procedure no matter the size of concrete slab we're working on. Preparing the site is the very first step in all of our projects. We clean the area and dispose of garbage so we can begin with a clean slate. In the process of preparing, all materials must be present on site. We schedule the delivery of all materials ahead of actual work. This helps us complete the project on schedule.


Step 2 - Create concrete forms and reinforce concrete slabs using steel

Once the site is clean and ready, we move on with the construction of concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are strong barriers that hold concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms force concrete to take on a particular shape or design. Rebar is a method of strengthening concrete structures that are larger. This helps to ensure concrete surfaces that are more durable.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to help make life easier. Concrete materials can be mixed more efficiently by using an concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of our projects, a concrete mixer is required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we are done mixing concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is poured into the forms. To ensure that there are no air pockets, we take care to pour the concrete mix. Air pockets can be created due to a lack of mortar in the gaps around the aggregate. We ensure that the concrete mix is evenly distributed across the shape.
