What are Concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs can be used as a structural element in buildings. Concrete slabs are thick, flat, horizontal concrete floor which is often utilized as a roof or floor. Concrete slabs, placed on the soil directly or on foundations supporting them, are used to create the foundation for certain residential buildings.

In all of our concrete construction projects the safety of our customers is a top priority. Before we begin any work, we make sure that we are properly equipped with safety equipment. Eye protection Long sleeves, long pants and rubber gloves are essential. All of these help keep us safe from concrete splatters that can affect our health and well-being.


Follow the steps listed below as part of the procedure:


Step 1 - Onsite Preparation

We use the same procedure no matter the size of concrete slab project we're working on. Cleaning the site is the very first step in all our projects. We tidy up and remove all garbage to make it possible for us to start over. As part of the preparation process the materials should be on-site. We plan for the delivery of the materials prior to the time we start the actual work. This lets us finish the project within the timeframe.


Step 2: Reinforce concrete slab with steel, and then construct concrete forms.

After the site is cleaned and prepared, we begin by putting in concrete forms using wire mesh. Concrete forms are strong blocks that keep concrete mix in the right place. Concrete forms force wet concrete to take on a particular shape or form. Rebar is used to reinforce concrete structures that are larger. This makes concrete stronger.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

To make it easier for us, we utilize a concrete truck. It also helps in ensuring that concrete materials are mixed properly. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Concrete mixers are required for most projects.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

Once we are done mixing concrete then the concrete slab is poured into the forms. To prevent air pockets, we take care to apply the mix of concrete. Air pockets can be caused by not enough mortar being filled with aggregate. When making concrete, we make sure that we evenly disperse the mix across the shape. We will never fail to fill a space.
