What are concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component of construction. A concrete slab is a thin, flat, horizontal concrete surface that's used for flooring or roofing. Concrete slabs can be utilized to create the ground floor of residential buildings or on the ground or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is a challenge if one doesn't have the required abilities. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to a strict concrete slab installation procedure that conforms to local codes and industry standards.


Our top priority is safety when working on concrete projects. Before starting any project, we make sure we equip ourselves with safety gear. Eye protection, long sleeves or long pants, rubber boots or gloves are all necessary. These all protect us from concrete splatters, which can harm our health and well-being.


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


Step 1: Preparation on-site

We use the same procedure regardless of whether it's a smaller concrete slab project or a more extensive one. Cleaning the area is the initial step in all our projects. We clean the area and dispose of waste so we can start from scratch. In the process of preparing it is essential that all the necessary materials are on-site. We schedule the delivery of all materials prior to the actual work. This helps us complete the project within the timeframe.


Step 2: Reinforce concrete slab with steel and construct concrete forms

After everything is clean and tidy, we begin to install concrete forms by using wire mesh. Concrete forms act as a solid blockage to hold the concrete mix in position. Concrete forms force wet concrete to conform to a specific shape or form. Rebar is used for strengthening concrete to support larger structures. This will ensure that concrete surfaces are stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us, we use the concrete truck. This ensures the concrete material is correctly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Most of the time, however we make use of a concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete, the concrete slab is poured into the forms. We pour the concrete mix carefully so as to not create air pockets. Air pockets can be created by too little mortar in the gaps surrounding the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is essential that we evenly distribute the mix across the form, never leaving a single spot.
