What are Concrete Slabs?


A concrete slab makes up a large part of the construction elements of buildings. It is a large flat, horizontal concrete surface typically used for a floor or a roof. Concrete slabs are utilized to build the ground flooring in some homes. Concrete slabs can be positioned directly on the soil or as support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is a challenge if you don’t have the necessary knowledge and experience. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to strict concrete slab installation procedures that are in line with industry standards as well as local codes.


In all of our concrete construction projects the safety of our customers is a top priority. When a project begins we ensure that we use the appropriate safety equipment. We put on gloves, long sleeves with rubber boots, gloves and rubber to shield our eyes. These safeguard us from concrete splashes that could be harmful to our overall health and well-being.


In the course of our work, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1: On-site Preparation

We use the same procedure no matter the size of concrete slab project we're working on. Every project begins with the preparation of the area. We clean up and eliminate all garbage to make it possible for us to begin again. We make sure the materials are on site as part of the preparation. We schedule the delivery of all materials ahead of actual work. This enables us to start and complete the work on time.


Step 2 Re-inforce concrete slabs using steel and build concrete forms.

After everything is tidy and clean, we begin to install concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms work as a solid barrier to keep the concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force concrete to conform to a specific shape or form. Rebar is a method of strengthening concrete structures that are larger. This allows concrete surfaces that are more sturdy.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to simplify life. It helps to ensure that concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is needed for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we pour concrete into the forms. It is crucial to do this carefully so that there aren't excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets occur because there isn't enough mortar to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. As we pour concrete, it is essential that we evenly distribute the mix across the form - never missing any one area.
