What is concrete?


Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component of construction. A concrete slab is an extremely thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer that is utilized as a floor or even as a roof. Concrete slabs are used to build the foundation of homes or on the ground or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation can be a challenge when one does not have the necessary expertise. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors employs an exact concrete slab construction procedure that is strictly adhered to local codes and industry standards.


Our top priority is safety when working on concrete projects. Before we begin any work, we make sure that we are equipped with security equipment. We are equipped with gloves, long sleeves, long pants and rubber boots. All these protect us from concrete splatters, which could harm our overall health and well-being.


As with the process, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1: Onsite preparation

We follow the same procedure regardless of whether we're working on a small slab or a big project. The first step is to prepare the site for any projects we do. To begin fresh cleaning up, we eliminate any waste. As part of our preparation we make sure that all the necessary materials are on the site. The transportation of materials is planned prior to when actually work can begin. This lets us finish the work on time.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and strengthen concrete slabs using steel

Once the site has been cleaned and is ready to be installed Wire mesh is used to construct concrete forms. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force concrete to adopt a certain shape or design. Rebar is used for strengthening concrete for larger structures. This allows for stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

A concrete truck is utilized to simplify the process. It also helps ensure concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. In the majority of projects the use of a concrete mixer is a must.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete and forming the slab, the concrete is then poured into the molds. It is crucial to do the concrete mix with care to prevent air pockets. Air pockets occur when there isn't enough mortar to fill the gaps around the aggregate. Concrete is made by ensuring that it is evenly distributed across the shape.
