What are concrete slabs?


A concrete slab is an important portion of structural elements in buildings. A concrete slab is a flat, thick horizontal concrete surface that is utilized for a floor or roof. Concrete slabs, placed on the soil directly or on foundations for support and are used to build the foundation for certain homes.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is a challenge when one does not have the right skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows strict construction of concrete slabs process that strictly follows local codes as well as industry standards.


Safety is the top priority in all our concrete projects. We ensure that we have all necessary safety equipment prior to we start any project. We have gloves, long sleeves, long pants, and rubber boots. They protect us from concrete splashes that can be harmful to our overall health or well-being.


We follow the steps listed below as part of the procedure:


Step 1: Preparation on-site

We follow the exact same procedure regardless of the size concrete slab project we're working on. We always begin by clearing the site for all the projects we undertake. We tidy the area and dispose of waste so we can start with a clean slate. We make sure that all the necessary materials are readily available as part of the preparation. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the time we begin the actual work. This helps us complete the project within the timeline we have set.


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

After the site is cleaned and ready, we proceed by putting in concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms function as a solid wall to keep the concrete mix in its position. They also force wet concrete to take on a specific shape or design. Rebar is used for strengthening concrete structures that are larger. This helps ensure stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us for us, we utilize a concrete truck. Concrete materials are mixed more efficiently by using an concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, concrete mixers are needed to finish projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After we have finished mixing concrete, we immediately pour the concrete slab into our molds. To avoid air pockets, we take care to apply the mix of concrete. Air pockets can be created due to a lack of mortar in the gaps around the aggregate. We ensure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed across the shape.
