More so concrete slabs are employed 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 slabs can be a challenge when your experience and skills aren't up to the task. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors employ a strict concrete slab-installation process that is in line with the industry's standards and codes.


Safety is the first priority for us in all of the concrete work we undertake. Before starting any project we ensure we have the proper safety equipment. Eye protection and long sleeves, or long pants rubber boots, gloves or rubber shoes are essential. All these protect us from concrete splashes which can harm our health and well-being.


Similar to previously, we now follow the steps below:


Step 1: Preparation at the site

We follow the exact procedure regardless of the size concrete slab we're working on. We always begin by clearing the area for any projects we do. In order to start from scratch cleaning up, we get rid of any trash. We ensure all materials are prepared to be used during the preparation phase. We plan the delivery of these materials prior to the actual work. This helps us start and complete the work on time.


Step 2: Build Concrete Forms and reinforce Concrete Slabs using Steel

Once the site is cleaned, we will construct concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that keep concrete mix in its place. Concrete forms also make concrete mix adopt a particular shape or design. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete in larger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to make life easier. It ensures that concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. A concrete mixer is required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After we have finished mixing concrete, we immediately put the concrete slab in our forms. It is important to take care that there aren't excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets can be created by too little mortar in the gaps around the aggregate. When pouring concrete, it is important to ensure that we disperse the mix across the form. We will never fail to fill a space.
