What is Concrete Slabs?


A concrete slab makes up an important portion of building's structural components. Concrete slabs are thick horizontal, flat concrete floor which is usually used as a roof or floor. More so, concrete slabs are used for the construction of the ground floor of some residential buildings as a support for the foundation, or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs can be a challenge If you don't have the experience and skills for them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors employ an exact concrete slab-installation procedure that follows the industry's standards and codes.


Safety is our top priority in all the concrete work we undertake. When a project begins it is made sure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves and long pants, rubber boots gloves and gloves form components of our safety equipment. These all protect us from concrete splashes which can harm our health and well-being.


For the procedure, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1 - Preparation on the spot

We all follow the same procedure regardless of how big a project you are working on. Each project we take on begins by preparing the site. We tidy up and get rid of garbage so we can begin from scratch. In the process of preparing, all materials must be on-site. We plan the delivery of the materials prior to the actual work. This helps us start and complete the work on time.


Step 2 Build Concrete Forms and Reinforce Concrete Slabs using Stahl

Once the site is cleaned, we will install concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are strong barriers that keep concrete mix in place. Concrete forms allow concrete mix to take on a specific shape or design. As for bigger structures, we utilize rebar to reinforce concrete. This helps concrete surfaces become stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To make it easier for us, we utilize a concrete truck. This helps to ensure the concrete material is correctly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. In the majority of projects, a concrete mixer will be needed.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete has been mixed, we immediately pour a concrete slab in the form. It's important that we do the concrete mix in a careful manner to avoid air pockets. Air pockets are caused by not enough mortar being filled with the aggregate. Concrete is poured by making sure it is evenly distributed across the form.
