What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab can be employed as a structural element for buildings. It is a large, flat, horizontal concrete surface typically used for an area for flooring or as a roof. Concrete slabs are used to construct the floor of some residential structures. They can be positioned directly on the soil or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs are not for the faint of heart. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors employs an exact concrete slab construction procedure that is strictly adhered to local codes as well as industry standards.


In all of our concrete projects, safety is a paramount concern. Prior to starting any project, we ensure we have the proper 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.


Following the same process as previously, we now follow these steps:


Step 1: Preparation at the site

Whatever the size or huge the project may be, we follow the same process. Each project starts by preparing the area. We tidy the area and dispose of garbage so we can begin with a clean slate. As part of our preparation, we ensure that all the materials are available at the location. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the actual work. This helps us complete the work on time.


Step 2 Step 2: Reinforce concrete slabs with steel, and then construct concrete forms.

After everything is clean and tidy We can begin installing concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms are sturdy barriers that help hold concrete mix in the right place. It makes concrete form an solid block that keeps the concrete mix. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete in larger structures. This helps ensure stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us for us, we utilize a concrete truck. This ensures the concrete material is mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. For the majority of projects the use of a concrete mixer is likely to be required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete is mixed, we then put a concrete slab into the forms. We pour the concrete mixture carefully to avoid creating air pockets. Air pockets are created when there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. Concrete is poured by making sure it is evenly distributed throughout the shape.
