What is concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a typical construction element used in building. Concrete slabs are smooth, dense, horizontal concrete surface which is used to construct a floor or roof. Concrete slabs, laid directly on the ground or on foundations for support and are used to build the foundation for certain residential structures.

Concrete slab installation is a challenge if you don’t have the right knowledge and skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors adheres to the strict concrete slab installation process.


In all of our concrete construction projects the safety of our customers is a paramount concern. Before any project is started it is made sure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. Eye protection and long sleeves, or long pants and rubber gloves are essential. They protect us from concrete splashes which could cause harm to our health and well-being.


Follow these steps as well.


Step 1 - Onsite Preparation

We follow the same process, no matter what size project we are working on. The first step is to prepare the site for all the tasks we carry out. We remove all trace of contamination so that we can begin from scratch. In the course of our preparation, we make sure all materials are on site. We plan the delivery of materials before the actual work begins. This lets us finish the project within the timeframe.


Step 2 - Build concrete forms and strengthen concrete slabs with steel

Once everything is neat and tidy, we begin to install concrete forms with wire mesh. Concrete forms are strong barriers that keep concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms force wet concrete to conform to a specific shape or design. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete for larger structures. This makes concrete surfaces stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To help us, we use a concrete truck. It helps ensure concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Most of the time, however, we use an concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

When we're done mixing concrete, the concrete slab is poured into the form. It's crucial that we make the concrete mix carefully to avoid air pockets. Air pockets arise from too much mortar not being placed around the aggregate. Concrete is poured by making sure the mortar is evenly distributed across the shape.
