What are Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs can be used as a structural element for buildings. It is a thick and flat horizontal concrete surface usually used as an area for flooring or as a roof. Concrete slabs are used to construct the foundation of homes in a variety of ways, whether on the soil or to support the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installations can be tricky when you don't have the experience and expertise to do them. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to an exact concrete slab construction process that adheres strictly to local codes as well as industry standards.


Safety is the top priority for all concrete projects. Before we begin any project, we ensure that we're properly outfitted with safety gear. We wear gloves with long sleeves, long pants and rubber boots. All these protections protect us from concrete splatters that could cause damage to our health overall and well-being.


For the procedure, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1: Prepare on-site

We use the same procedure regardless of whether it's a smaller concrete slab project or a more extensive one. Preparing the site is the very first step in all of our projects. We tidy the area and dispose of garbage so we can begin on a clean slate. As part the preparation process the materials should be present on site. We plan the arrival of the materials prior to the actual project. This allows us the ability to begin and finish the work on time.


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

Once the area is cleaned, we will put in concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms act as a solid wall to hold the concrete mix in place. They also force wet concrete to take on a specific shape or form. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete structures that are larger. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make life easier. It also assists in ensuring concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Most of the time, however we employ a concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete we pour a concrete slab into the molds. We do it carefully as we pour the concrete mix to avoid creating too many air pockets. Air pockets can form when there is not enough mortar available to fill the spaces around the aggregate. When we pour concrete, we ensure that we spread the mix throughout the form, never leaving one spot.
