What are Concrete Slabs?


Concrete slabs are a typical structural element in buildings. Concrete slabs are a dense, flat, horizontal concrete floor which is usually utilized as a roof or floor. More so, concrete slabs are used to construct the ground floor of some residential buildings to support the foundation or directly on the ground.

Concrete slab installation is difficult for those who don't possess the necessary skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows a strict concrete slab construction process that adheres strictly to local codes and industry standards.


Safety is an important factor in all of our concrete projects. Before starting any project, we make sure we equip ourselves with safety equipment. Eye protection, long sleeves or long pants and rubber gloves are essential. These protect us against concrete splashes that can be harmful to our health and well-being.


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


Step 1 - Onsite Preparation

We follow the exact same procedure no matter the size of concrete slab project we're working on. Preparing the site is the first stage in all of our projects. We tidy up and remove any waste that is left so that it is possible for us to start over. In preparation we make sure that all materials are present at the location. We plan the delivery of materials prior to actual project. This ensures that we can complete the work within the deadline we have established.


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

After the site has been cleaned up, we install concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that hold the concrete mix in place. It forces concrete mix to adopt a particular shape or shape. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete in larger structures. This makes concrete surfaces stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to make the process easier. This makes sure that concrete materials are correctly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. However, in the majority of our projects, a concrete mixer is required.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we pour it into the molds. Be careful when pouring the concrete mix to avoid creating too many air pockets. Air pockets are caused by excessive mortar being placed around the aggregate. We ensure that the concrete mix is evenly distributed throughout the shape.
