What is concrete?


Concrete slabs are a common building element that is used as a structural component. Concrete slabs are the thick, flat, and horizontal concrete layer that can be used as a floor, or even as an roof. Concrete slabs are used to construct the flooring in some homes. Concrete slabs can be placed directly on the soil or used as a support for the foundation.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation is not for the faint of heart. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adhere to strict concrete slab installation practices which are compliant with industry standards and local codes.


Safety is the first priority for us in all of the concrete work we undertake. Prior to starting any project, we make sure that we have safety equipment. We put on gloves long sleeves, rubber boots and gloves to shield our eyes. These protect us against concrete splashes that can affect our health and well-being.


We follow these steps as well.


Step 1 - Preparation on the spot

Whatever small or big the project is no matter how big or small, we will use the same method for all projects. Each project we take on begins with the preparation of the area. We tidy up and remove all garbage in order for us to begin again. In preparation, we ensure that all materials are present at the location. We schedule the delivery of materials before the actual work. This gives us the opportunity to begin and finish the work on time.


Step 2: Build concrete forms and strengthen concrete slabs using steel

After the site has been cleaned, we will install concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are strong barriers that hold concrete mix in the right place. Concrete mix is forced to take a particular form or shape. Rebar is used for strengthening concrete for larger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to facilitate the process. It also helps in ensuring concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Most of the time, however, we use an concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After mixing concrete we immediately put a concrete slab in the forms. It is important to take care that there are not too many air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets can form when there isn't enough mortar to fill the gaps around the aggregate. We ensure that the mix of concrete is evenly distributed throughout the form.
