What are Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs are an essential structural element in buildings. Concrete slabs are thin, flat horizontal concrete surface that's used for flooring or roofing. More so concrete slabs are employed to construct the ground floors of many residential structures to support the foundation, or directly on the soil.

Concrete installation can be a challenge when you don't have the necessary knowledge and experience. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to a strict concrete slab installation process that adheres to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is the top priority in all of our concrete projects. Before starting any project we ensure that we have all necessary safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves or long pants rubber boots, gloves or rubber shoes, are all essential. All of these protect us from concrete splashes.


We follow the steps below as an integral part of our procedure:


Step 1: Preparation for the Site

We use the same process regardless of whether we are working on a small slab or huge project. Each project we take on begins by preparing the area. We tidy up and remove all garbage in order for us to start over. We make sure that all the items are in good condition to use during the preparation phase. We plan the delivery of these materials prior to the actual work. This allows us to begin and complete the work in the quickest time.


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

After the site has been cleaned and is ready for installation Wire mesh is used to construct concrete forms. Concrete forms function as a solid blockage to hold the concrete mix in its place. Concrete forms also force concrete mix to take on a specific shape or style. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete structures that are larger. This ensures the concrete surface is more durable.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To make it easier, we use the concrete truck. It also helps in ensuring that concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of our projects mixing concrete, a mixer is required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing the concrete, we pour concrete into the forms. It is crucial to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there aren't too many air pockets when pouring concrete. Air pockets occur because there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the gaps around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we evenly spread the mix over the form. We do not fail to fill a space.
