What is concrete?


Concrete slabs are an extremely popular structural component of structures. Concrete slabs are thick and flat horizontal concrete floor which is often utilized as a roof or floor. Additionally concrete slabs are utilized to construct the ground floor of some residential buildings as a foundation support foundation, or directly on the ground.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete slab installation is a challenge if you don’t have the necessary knowledge and experience. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows an exact concrete slab construction procedure that is strictly adhered to local codes as well as industry standards.


In all of our concrete construction projects the safety of our customers is a top priority. We make sure that we are equipped with the necessary safety equipment before we begin any project. We put on gloves, long sleeves, rubber boots and gloves to protect our eyes. All of these protect us against concrete splashes.


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


Step 1: Preparation on site

We follow the same process regardless of the size project you are working on. We for all projects, make sure the site is prepared. We clean the area and dispose of debris so that we can begin on a clean slate. As part of our preparation we make sure that all materials are present on the job site. We plan the delivery of the material prior to the start of work. This allows us to complete the project within the timeframe.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and reinforce concrete slabs with steel

Once the site has been cleaned and is ready to be installed, we use wire mesh to construct concrete forms. Concrete forms are solid blocks that keep concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms also force concrete mix to assume a certain shape or style. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete for larger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us, we use a concrete truck. It is also useful in ensuring concrete materials are mixed correctly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is required in the majority of projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete, we pour concrete into the molds. It's crucial that we make the concrete mix with care to prevent air pockets. Air pockets occur because there isn't enough mortar available to fill in the spaces surrounding the aggregate. We ensure that the concrete mix is evenly distributed throughout the form.
