What is concrete?


Concrete slabs are a common structural element in buildings. A concrete slab is a thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer that can be utilized as a floor or even as an roof. Concrete slabs are used in some residential structures to support the foundation, or directly on the earth.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slabs are not for those with weak hearts. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follow strict concrete slab construction procedure that conforms to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is our top priority when working on concrete projects. We make sure that we have all necessary safety equipment prior to we begin any project. Eye protection, long sleeves and long pants, rubber boots gloves, and gloves form parts of our safety gear. These all help to safeguard us from concrete splashes which can affect our health and our overall health.


As with the process, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1: Preparation for the Site

We follow the exact same process no matter what size concrete slab we're working on. Each project we take on begins with the preparation of the area. In order to start from scratch cleaning up, we eliminate any waste. In the course of our preparation process we make sure that everything is on site. We plan the delivery of materials prior to the actual work. This helps us start and finish the project in time.


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

After the area has been cleaned and ready for installation, we use wire mesh to install concrete forms. Concrete forms are solid barriers which hold the concrete mixture in the right place. They create an solid block that keeps the concrete mix. To reinforce concrete using reinforced concrete, we mix it by using Rebar. This helps to ensure the concrete surface is more durable.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make life simpler. It also helps to ensure concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. But, the majority of concrete mixers are required for projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once done mixing concrete, we put a concrete slab in the forms. We pour the concrete mixture carefully so as to not create air pockets. Air pockets are caused by too little mortar in the gaps surrounding the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we evenly disperse the mix across the shape. We never fail to fill a space.
