What are Concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs can be used as a structural element for buildings. Concrete slabs are flat, thick, horizontal concrete surface that's used for the construction of a roof or floor. More so, concrete slabs are used to construct the ground flooring of some homes to support the foundation or directly on the soil.

Concrete installation can be challenging for those who don't possess the necessary skills. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors use a strict concrete slab-installation process that adheres to codes and standards of the industry.


Safety is the top priority when working on concrete projects. Prior to starting any project, we make sure that we have safety equipment. Eye protection and long sleeves, or long pants rubber boots, gloves or rubber shoes are essential. All these protections protect us from concrete splashes that can cause damage to our overall health and well being.


Follow the steps listed below as a an integral part of our process:


Step 1: Preparation on site

We all follow the same procedure regardless of how big a project it is. Cleaning the site is the very first step in all our projects. To begin fresh we tidy up and eliminate any waste. We make sure all materials are available on-site as part of the preparation. The supply of the materials is scheduled prior to the actual work begins. This helps us start and complete the work on time.


Step 2: Build Concrete Forms and Reinforce Concrete Slabs using Stahl

Once the site is cleaned, we can construct concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are solid barriers that help to hold the concrete mix in place. Concrete forms also make concrete mix take on a specific shape or design. Rebar is used for strengthening concrete for larger structures. This allows for stronger concrete surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks are used to make life easier. It helps to ensure that concrete materials are properly mixed. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. In the majority of projects mixing concrete, a mixer is a must.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once done mixing concrete, we immediately put a concrete slab in the forms. We do it carefully as we pour the concrete mix in order to ensure that we do not create too many air pockets. Air pockets can be caused by a lack of mortar being used in the spaces around the aggregate. When we pour concrete, we make sure we evenly distribute the mix across the form, not missing one spot.
