What is concrete?


A concrete slab makes up a large part of the structural elements in buildings. Concrete slabs are thick and flat horizontal concrete floor which is usually used as a roof or floor. Concrete slabs are used to construct the foundation of homes, either on the soil or supporting the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs are not for those with weak hearts. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors use strict procedures for concrete slab installation that is in line with industry standards and codes.


Safety is the first priority for us in all of our concrete projects. Before we begin any work, we ensure that we are equipped with safety equipment. We put on gloves, long sleeves as well as rubber boots and gloves to protect our eyes. All of these safeguard us from concrete splashes.


The following steps are strictly followed in the course of the procedure.


Step 1: Preparation on the spot

We always follow the same method regardless of how big a project you are working on. Each project starts by preparing the area. We clear away all traces of contamination to allow us to begin from scratch. As part of the preparation process the materials should be present on site. We plan for the delivery of the materials before we start the actual work. This allows us the ability to start and complete the work in time.


Step 2: Reinforce concrete slab with steel and build concrete forms.

Once the site is cleaned and is ready for installation We use wire mesh to install concrete forms. Concrete forms work as a solid blockage to keep the concrete mix in position. Concrete forms force concrete to adopt a certain shape or form. For concrete reinforcement using reinforced concrete, we mix it using the help of rebar. This allows for more durable concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to help make life easier. This ensures that concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of cases, we use an concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After the concrete has been mixed, we immediately pour concrete into the forms. It is essential to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there aren't excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets can be created by a lack of mortar in the gaps around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, we ensure that we evenly spread the mix over the form. We do not leave a gap.
