What is concrete?


Concrete slabs are a popular structural element of buildings. It is a thick and flat horizontal concrete surface usually used as an area for flooring or as a roof. Additionally concrete slabs are utilized to construct the ground flooring of some homes as a foundation support foundation, or directly on the soil.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation can be challenging if one doesn't have the right expertise. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follow an exact concrete slab installation procedure that conforms to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is a priority in all of our concrete projects. When a project begins we ensure that we use the appropriate safety equipment. We wear gloves, long sleeves with rubber boots, gloves and rubber to protect our eyes. These protect us against concrete splashes that could be harmful to our health and well-being.


The following steps are strictly followed as part of the procedure.


Step 1 - Onsite Preparation

We follow the exact same procedure regardless of the size concrete slab we're working on. All projects start with preparing the area. We tidy the area and dispose of garbage so we can begin with a clean slate. We ensure all materials are prepared to use in the process of preparation. The supply of the materials is scheduled before actually work can begin. This helps us complete the project on schedule.


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

Once the area is cleaned, we can construct concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms function as a solid barrier to help hold the concrete mix in place. They also force wet concrete to assume a particular shape or form. To strengthen concrete we make use of reinforced concrete with the help of rebar. This ensures stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us, we use the concrete truck. It also assists in ensuring concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, concrete mixers are required to finish projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once the concrete has been mixed, we then pour concrete into the form. It is important to be careful as we pour the concrete mix to ensure that we do not create too many air pockets. Air pockets arise from excessive mortar being positioned on top of the aggregate. As we pour concrete, we ensure that we distribute the mix evenly across the form, not missing one spot.
