What is Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component used in building construction. It is a thick, flat, horizontal concrete surface usually used as a floor or a roof. More so, concrete slabs are used to construct the ground floor of some residential buildings as a support for the foundation or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is difficult for those who don't possess the right skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to stringent concrete slab installation methods that conform to industry standards and local codes.


Our top priority is safety when we work on concrete construction projects. Prior to starting any work, we ensure that we have safety gear. Eye protection, long sleeves, 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.


We follow the steps listed below as a part of the process:


Step 1: Onsite preparation

Whatever the size or huge the project may be no matter how big or small, we will adhere to the same procedure. The first step is to prepare the site for any projects we undertake. We tidy up and eliminate debris so that we can begin on a clean slate. We ensure that all items are in good condition to be used in the process of preparation. The delivery of materials is planned prior to when the actual work starts. This helps us complete the project on schedule.


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

Once the site has been cleared and prepared, we will begin the process of installing concrete forms made with 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. As for larger structures, we use rebar to reinforce concrete. This allows for more durable concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make the process easier. This ensures the concrete material is mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete, the concrete slab is poured into the forms. Be careful when pouring the concrete mix in order to prevent creating air pockets. Air pockets are caused by excessive mortar being positioned around the aggregate. Concrete is poured by making sure the mortar is evenly distributed across the shape.
