What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component in buildings. It is a thick, flat, horizontal concrete surface typically used for the floor or roof. Concrete slabs are employed in certain residential buildings to help support the foundation or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs can be a challenge if you don't have the knowledge and skills for them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows the strict process of installing concrete slabs.


Safety is our top priority in all our concrete projects. Before beginning any project, we make sure we have all necessary safety equipment. Eye protection is a must, as are long sleeves, long pants, rubber gloves, and boots. All of these safeguards protect us from concrete splatters that could harm our health overall and well-being.


We strictly follow the steps below as an integral part of our process:


Step 1: Prepare on-site

We follow the same process regardless of the size project you are working on. Every project we work on starts with the preparation of the site. We tidy up and remove all waste in order for us to start over. In the course of our preparation we ensure that all materials are on site. We plan the arrival of materials prior to the actual work. This lets us finish the project on schedule.


Step 2: Build Concrete Forms and reinforce Concrete Slabs with Steel

When the area is clean and ready, we move on by putting in concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms work as a solid blockage to keep the concrete mix in position. Concrete forms create solid and holds the concrete mix. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete for larger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

A concrete truck is utilized to simplify the process. It assists in ensuring the concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. For most projects, however, a concrete mixer will be required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we immediately place a concrete slab on the forms. It's important that we do the concrete mix with care to prevent air pockets. Air pockets are created when there is not enough mortar to fill in the spaces surrounding the aggregate. Concrete is created by spreading the mix uniformly over the shape.
